“Nostalgic property in Oudtshoorn”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

Stayed here for a night in August when passing through on our way from Port Elizabeth to Stellenbosch. If nostalgia for the British empire before WWII is your thing, you'll like it here. Gracious and friendly staff. Rooms are small and contribute to the nostalgic effect; you too can re-live your great-grandparents' hotel experience. Restaurant on the property was good, as was the breakfast room. Apparently this is one of the top properties in Oudtshoorn, which says more about the town than the hotel.

As I have said in my subject line it is central close to local businesses. The rooms is a little small but that is not a problem if you there for a short time or on business.service can be top quality or slow at times depending how many guests there is or who is on duty.i recommend the coffee shop for breakfast and also for snacks and lite neels.the colony the very best for good S AFrican Cooking.

An elegant town centre hotel in the world's ostrich capital! The hotel takes its name from an impromptu visit by the royal family in 1947. There are some remarkable photos providing a glimpse of the area's heritage. Oudtshoorn is an interesting town - the CP Nel Museum (next door to the hotel) provides a fascinating insight into the feather boom, over a century ago.

The historic Queen Hotel has a very grand exterior and very comfortable public areas, but quite small bedrooms, probably due to ensuite bathrooms being carved out of 150-year-old bedrooms. Our room didn't have a frig, but the bed and bathroom were OK (just), although the lighting was poor. The public rooms for guests (restaurant, club lounge, breakfast room etc) were all very good - internet was available only in the club lounge.

Room Tip: make sure you don't get a corner room - they are smaller than the others, due to the way the bat...

We always stop at the Queens Hotel when we travel to Cape Town and always enjoy staying there!!Rooms are nice,pool good and the food outstanding.I had a springbuck loin and it was excellent!One little complaint about the food-breakfast seems to be scaled down with less choice...I always enjoyed the chicken livers and kidneys,but this has dissapeared...what a shame!Otherwise everything to be recommended!
