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.

One night business stay. Dinner in the Victoria room was divine. Especially the Karoo Lamb shank.

We loved our stay at this lovely hotel.We would like to mention Rebecca the smiling waitress, I wonder if management realize what a star and asset she is to the hotel, she gets ten stars from us.

The hotel is much upgraded since our last visit.  We had a large and well equipped room fitted with traditional country hotel furniture.  We enjoyed the pool area and had a very good meal.  Breakfast was particularly good; the attractive cafe and terrace right in the busy heart of town was very pleasant.
