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. 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.

The Royal Hotel offers luxurious en-suite bedrooms which are all air conditioned, equipped with mini bars, DSTV, DVD players and offer 24 hour room service.

Guests can choose to dine in The Period Bar, Two Tterraces, or air conditioned interior restaurant, which offer meals 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.

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.

The Royal hotel is set in Riebeek Kasteel, one of the oldest towns in South Africa, situated 75 km from Cape Town in The Riebeek Valley together with its sister town Riebeek West.
