The Swartberg Hotel is a haven of character and atmosphere from the stylish rooms in the hotel and the cottage accommodation in the restful garden to the true South African delights of the dining room.
The Swartberg Hotel, a magnificent Victorian-style hotel with tasteful original decor, has comfortable and stylish decorated rooms and spacious cottages set in the garden. In summer lunches and teas are served on the verandah, at the swimming pool or in the air-conditioned coffee shop.
Evening meals are served in the gracious dining-room.
During a chilly Karoo winter's evening, when the mountains are capped with snow, log fires blaze in the lounge, dining room and ladies bar.
The Swartberg Hotel has been declared as a National Historical building, as well as several other buildings in Prince Albert. Wander past these gems of bygone years to visit our local Fransie Pienaar Museum to view relics of dinosaurs that eons ago roamed the Karoo.

Bird-lovers and stargazers are specially catered for in the district of Prince Albert.
It is heaven for mountainbikers and hikers, with tough all-day hikes, Sunday afternoon strolls and walks to picnic spots.
A favourite tourism attraction is The Hell, a secluded valley in Gamkaskloof in the heart of the Swartberg mountains.
The Prince Albert district is filled with fruit orchards where fruits such as nectarines and apricots of export quality as well as olives, can be found.

For guests staying more than one night I would have liked to see different dinner menus each night. We found all the staff to be very friendly and helpful.
