We stayed here for just one night, celebrating a birthday. What a treat it was! The room was spacious, spotless and well appointed, with all kinds of special touches that show real consideration for guests. The service was friendly yet discreet and no request was too much trouble. Our dinner at Rueben's restaurant was great. In all, a memorable experience... More

If you wish to meet lovely people who care about you, be pampered, spoilt and have tremendous cuisine, the Robertson Small Hotel is the place to go. We loved our time there. Two nights was too short! We felt we had made some lovely friends by the time we left. We WILL be back.

This is a stunning hotel with a modern relaxed feel. The certificates on the wall say it all!! Our room was connected to the swimming pool and although not the time of year for a swim, it was still nice to look out on. Our room was spacious and clean with a lovely bathroom. We ate twice at Ruebens restaurant... More

This hotel is in another class! The rooms are exquisite. The food are good and the service outstanding.

Luxurious brake away, genuine caring staff, beautiful luxurious accommodation, exquisite attention to detail. Even in the midst of winter storm the pools looked tempting. We would go back any day. Ideal anniversary spot

A tremendously pleasant surprise to find 5 star establishment in this small village. The poolside units are beautifully appointed, all 4 poolside units open up directly onto the pool, you can step into the pool directly from your unit's veranda. Small visually pleasing, well kept garden adds tranquility. Interesting, soulful art on display in the main house, read the book... More

We stayed at the hotel for one night. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We stayed in the honeymoon suite which is worth the extra money if you are looking for a very private experience. If you do go through robertson I recommend you consider booking here.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This unsung jewel encapsulates outer-city hospitality at its most refined in an elegant boutique hotel which calls for an unhurried sojourn in the heart of the quaint town of Robertson.The Robertson Small Hotel’s family of three encapsulates the royal Victorian Manor House, a national monument built in 1909; suave yet relaxed Stable Suites and the serene Poolside Suites, flaunting a crisp cool sense of calm at the water’s edge. The same contrast of clean, natural hues and rich organic textures, silhouetted against a monochrome palette of French white, is integrated in ten luxury suites. Each of the spacious air-conditioned rooms is cocooned with its own unique celebration of modern design and fusion of eclectic yet comfortable furnishings. Enhancing The Robertson Small Hotel experience, the Manor House is home to a cosy bar lounge and a state-of-the-art wine cellar which lends a backdrop to the hotel’s signature restaurant, Reuben’s at the Robertson. Relax and revitalize body and soul with a pampering treatment at The Wellness Room.Fringed by manicured gardens and shimmering pools, The Robertson Small Hotel allows guests to relax and interact in a lavish milieu where unparalleled accommodation, a homely ambience and world-class cuisine come standard. ... more   less
