About The Royal Hotel

The grand old Royal Hotel is located in Riebeek Kasteel, the village which, together with Hermon and Riebeek West, forms the picturesque and tranquil Riebeek Valley and part of the Wineland route. The Royal Hotel is the oldest and Colonial hotel of the Western Cape and offers the most beautiful and luxurious accommodation in Riebeek Kasteel, and the Swartland for that matter.

The hotel offers accommodation in true Old World luxury at affordable prices and all the rooms have been recently upgraded to the highest 5 Star standards. Enjoy great views of the valley and the Kasteelberg from our garden, swimming pool and pool deck or indulge in relaxing massages in the privacy of your room or in the gazebo in the garden.

The 150-year-old Colonial bar is located next to the restaurant, while the pool bar caters for the pool, garden and outside lounge. Our verandah was named the longest verandah south of the Limpopo by the Government when we were listed as one of the 50 Most Fabulous Places to visit in South Africa.

The location of Riebeek Kasteel is very central, with Paarl, Stellenbosch, Cape Town, Franschhoek, Tulbagh, Ceres and safari possibilities all less than an hour away. Many golf courses, including the biggest golf course in South Africa, is just half an hour’s drive away.

The hotel is the perfect wedding venue, and with our personal service and possibilities, we are also very popular for conferences for up to 120 delegates.

Wedding Venues: The hotel was chosen as one of the most beautiful wedding venues by the Wine Magazine in 2009. We offer a professional co-ordinator on site and also also maintain a close relationship with wedding planners, Aleit and Wedding Concepts.

                      Setting of hotel is nice but rooms need an upgrade - we stayed in a garden room. Breakfast was awful. Don’t recommend. Rather have breakfast is some of Riebeek Kastiel’s coffee shops. Disappointing breakfast. Pool was green.

                      Everything just delivered! Old hotel charm never ticked my boxes but this exceeded all my previous experiences and expectations.. Then there's the staff, the famous Gin on the long stoep, the location and the great meals. Be sure to book over the 1st Friday of each month then the whole town becomes alive and feels like one big Fair as even the retail shops runs on extented hours..

                      The moment we walked into the hotel we were greeted with a warm welcome. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us. Five stars for the staff and the fact that they made us sandwiches for the road as we left too early for breakfast.
