Firstly, apologies this review has taken so long to write because it was amazing. We arrived at this hotel from Cape Town and were enchanted with the town and of course this amazing hotel. We had the warmest of welcomes from the most beautiful of ladies, Anela (Hope I spelt it right) and it was lovely from start to finish. You made us so welcome and everything was perfect xxx thank you

From the moment you arrive the hotel has a very classy feel. The interior is beautifully decorated and the historic features have been incorporated into a modern feel. We arrived early and our room wasn't quite ready so we were given a complimentary glass of wine. The hotel has two pools and a bar and the staff are always on hand to see to your every need. Breakfast has the usual buffet items but they will also cook whatever you require. We were only here for two nights but had a wonderful relaxing stay. The thing that sets it apart most is the wonderful staff who simply cannot do enough for you.

We were staying here when the Covid-19 pandemic struck, had to curtail the rest of our trip to S.A. and wait for new flights back to Norway. Could not think of a better location to be stuck in. The staff at River Manor were unbelievably helpful and we hope that you are all safe and well. We will return when things "normalise" and give you all the hug we couldn't give you at the time!
