The Royal Hotel main building is traditional colonial style, with an impressive "Stoep". It is right by the centre of the small town, so easy to walk round the shops (mostly boutique style), cafes, bars and restaurants. We were welcomed with a drink and delicious cake. As it was a cold time of year, there were lots of log fires... More

After travelling from Paarl, we enjoyed a lovely cup of coffee at the hotel. After a 10km race we relaxed in the beautiful, tranquil garden overlooking the valley. A delicious pub lunch during the Springbok rugby match and a relaxed glass of wine in front of the cosy fire. Great food, great service and the lovely Charlotte Rhys bathroom products... More

Moira & I started with a G&T each (half price G&T from 5 - 6 pm) before moving to our table next to the fireplace for our wonderful 5 course dinner. Butternut cappuccino with toasted parsley biscotti started us on our way to heaven. This spicy butternut soup had a lovely creamy froth on top. I meant to ask chef... More

The food at the Royal hotel Riebeeck kasteel was very tasty. I can recommend the chicken ballotine stuffed with peppadews and feta wrapped in bacon and served with mustard flavoured mashed potato's . The restaurant is small and cosy with a fireplace. The drinks were a bit pricey. Worth a try.

When we needed to attend a wedding in Riebeek Kasteel we decided to spend a night at the Royal Hotel. The hotel came highly recommended and the website looked great. On arrival, we were slightly disappointed with the attention to detail with regards the check in, but once this was sorted we were escorted to our room. The room was... More

On the Friday we had the 5 course fine dining meal. It was delicious and more than enough food. It was so reasonably priced and would definitely... More

We stayed in the Royal Hotel during my leave in June - what an awesome experience. Staff was very friendly and the hotel is in top form. Best 5 course meal in a long time for only R98 - it's worth a visit - and if you arrive after 15h00 you only pay half price !!! I was impressed with... More

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 have also asked several friends and colleagues, and the feedback I got was excellent. Some feedback: “Excellent, feel like royalty, a must to visit”... More

Love the combination of the old world feel with combined with the luxury of modern day brilliant service. We have been back several times for lunch and a G&T.... More
