"The grand old lady finally has her new dress on" is what the locals said when The Royal was refurbished and upgraded to the highest standards in 2005/2006. After serving more than seven generations, the oldest hotel of the Western Cape occupies a very special place in the hearts of both local and international visitors.

We had a great time at the Royal Hotel in Riebeeck Kasteel. Good food and an amazing variety of Gin to choose from. Great wines also. The service was good and the atmosphere relaxed chic 🙂 good choice if you are in the area.

Do not come here on the strength of the Dec 2019 Getaway magazine review for the G&T happy hour. Although they have a good selection of gins and there is a verandah and the G&Ts are beautiful - there is no R16 G&T happy hour!

The rooms are lovely with space and extras, such as fridge stocked with drinks, and bathrobes, aircon and a huge bathroom for elegant bathing. We were the only guests, so dinner was not an option the first night, however The Red Tin Roof offers an excellent, if avant- garde, experience with a fascinating backdrop of old posters from Russia, China and Cuba. Recommend the burgers – piled high with food and very tasty, washed down with an excellent, fruity Pieter Cruythoff Sparkling wine. The next night, we dined at the hotel – fish and chips (more elegant than usual) and pork belly, with a local Lammershoek Innocent Chenin Blanc. There are many excellent wine co-ops and an amazing Olive Boutique offering unusual and yummy olives in the area. Spend at least two days here.

Really enjoyed our stay at the Royal hotel. Rooms are nicely done out. Charlotte Rhys cream and soap included which was lovely. Breakfasts are oh my word! I do think the gardens could be a little tidier. Overall a lovely place to stay.

I stayed for 3 nights. Beautiful setting and views. Staff is exceptional and so is the food. Fires going in all the common areas for those cold winter mornings and evenings. Week days are quite. Well situated to travel the surrounding areas for wine and olive tastings alike. Anyone who complains about the establishment will probably complain about most things in life.
