About Swartberg Hotel
The Swartberg Hotel is a charming 3 Star Victorian hotel situated in the heart the quaint Karoo village of Prince Albert. Established as a hotel in 1864, the Swartberg is now one of 19 National Monuments in the village, and is still the only hotel in Prince Albert today.
The hotel offers a number of rooms set either in the main building or in the tranquil garden. Each of the spacious rooms are comfortably furnished with an elegant Victorian feel. The hotel features a large dining area leading out onto the patio that overlooks the swimming pool, while the large second floor balcony offers a quiet retreat with beautiful views of the town.
Prince Albert is easily accessed from the N1 and is the perfect stopover if you are travelling between Cape Town and the interior of South Africa. The road to Prince Albert from the N2 is a little longer, however the magnificent sights of Meiringspoort or the Swartberg Pass are truly breathtaking, and a chance to experience either should not be missed.
