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.

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

We stayed at the Royal Hotel for my Birthday. We had the most amazing experience. The hotel staff are warm and friendly. The rooms are lovely and cozy and the bathroom is luxurious.

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

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. We had a fantastic afternoon and evening. Every need was catered for and the atmosphere was sophisticated yet had that warm country hospitality you have to go... More
