Overall Impressions

River Manor in Stellenbosch was fab - we received the best treatment and all the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. I feel though when a couple are on honeymoon just a little extra something should be done to mark this, like a glass of bubbles etc.. we had this on arrival in only one of the hotels we stayed in.

Countries Visited

Accommodation Visited

Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront, Cape Town 4

This was the first stop on our honeymoon so we were very excited. When we got to the reception desk firstly they had no knowledge we were honeymooners which we found disappointing. Secondly they wanted to charge us for parking when it was clearly specified to us that the parking would be free and thirdly we were to have a room with a view of table mountaing but were put in a room with little or no view of the sea. I emailed Nikki about the situation immediately and within 24 hours everything was sorted. The hotel itself is really beautiful and in a great location.

River Manor Boutique Hotel & Spa 5

We loved River Manor. Upon arrival we were congratulated on our recent marriage and given thorough information on the best things to do on our stay. Our bags were taken to our 'amazing' room overlooking the pool. 2 glasses of sparkling rose were delivered to us and chocolates were put on our pillows! The staff at River Manor made us feel very special, it was definitely one of the highlights of our honeymoon.

Robberg House 4

Again on arrival at Robberg House they had no knowledge that we were on honeymoon. We were given no special treatment! However, the accommodation and location were great.

Amakhala Safari Lodge 5

Beautiful place for honeymooners, it was even better that we were the only couple in the lodge the first night and were joined by a German honeymooning couple on the 2nd and 3rd nights.

Cape Cadogan Boutique Hotel 4

Cape Cadogan is beautiful, we had a lovely room and the location was great. No special treatment here though for honeymooners but it was a great location.
