Dating back to the 19th century, the newly refurbished Royal Hotel has re-opened, to the highest standards.

Situated at the very heart of Riebeek Kasteel, The Royal offers superlative comfort in true colonial style.

The period bar, two terraces, or air conditioned interior restaurant, cater all day whilst the a la carte 1862 fine dining experience is reserved for evenings.

Verdant gardens offer the perfect space to enjoy the dominant Kasteelberg, and the amphitheatre is superbly set for weddings or musical events. The raised pool is complemented by its own pool bar and deck.

Luxurious en-suite bedrooms are all air conditioned, equipped with mini bars, DSTV, DVD players and offer 24 hour room service. Shoe shine and car wash facilities are available.

Only an hour`s drive out of Cape Town, The Royal Hotel is situated at the heart of Riebeek Kasteel, surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and wheat lands stretching to the distant mountain ranges.

This authentic South African hotel has survived for well over a century, and offers genuine warm hospitality that you would expect from a sophisticated country style establishment - friendly staff and excellent food.

Join the locals on the colonial stoep whilst savouring vistas across the valley to the Elandskloofberge, and soaking up the relaxed rural atmosphere.

The function room is perfect for small conferences or wedding receptions which could spill out onto the spectacular gardens that offer superb space to take in the wonderful vista of Kasteelberg and its surrounding vineyards.

We look forward to seeing you and making your stay at the Royal a special one!

Very nice hotel! Food excellent. Service a bit slow, and the rooms along the street are a bit nosy. But we had a very good stay!
