I have never had the opportunity of staying at the The Royal Hotel - Riebeek Kasteel, but have admired it many times, and if I could afford it, would most probably have been there already.

I've stayed at the Royal hotel twice, and was so impressed with the friendly staff and amazing food and view, that I organized for our firm's year end function to be held there.

In SA we are on "Africa" time & when we visit in the country this applies x10. At The Royal Hotel it is definitely not the case!

One of the most charming little hotels that I have ever heard of - beautiful in all respects it seems! We have only heard amazing reviews of this hotel, and we've been trying to book a Honeymoon suite here for a few months, but haven't been able to! This is one of our fairytale destinations for our honeymoon, and we... More

This is such a lovely hotel.... it feels like we were in another city to be honest . just shows that we don't have to travel far to find a diamond in the rough. Next time I plan on leaving kids behind and enjoy some alone time with my husband .

We also stayed in the hotel in the most luxurious accommodation, we felt very spoilt. The service was great and food excellent. The Royal Hotel is just an absolute gem in a very special part... More
