Mont d'Or Swartberg Hotel is a charming four-star (TGCSA) Victorian hotel, situated in the heart of our quaint Karoo village, Prince Albert. Established as a hotel in 1864, the Swartberg is now one of 19 national monuments in the village and is still the only hotel in Prince Albert today. A national monument with over 150 years of history, the Swartberg Hotel offers comfort, outstanding rural hospitality and great local food to guests from all over the world. Situated at the very heart of the small town of Prince Albert, it’s the perfect place to enjoy the vast open expanses of the Karoo's breathtaking natural beauty and a night sky filled with stars so bright you’ll have to see them for yourself to believe us.

What a wonderful experience it was staying at this Hotel. All the staff we encountered were amazing. The food was great and reasonably priced. The only negative thing was that we stayed in a standard room that was a bit small and cramped. We will stay here again, but will upgrade our room.

This charming hotel is a delight to stay in. The staff were friendly and the facilities are excellent. We particularly enjoyed our dinner in the old world dinning room. Prince Albert is a lovely town to explore and the central location of this hotel in the main street makes it easy for the traveller to enjoy many activities. Prince Albert is a good springboard for further travel to Oudtshoorn via Meringspoort.

It was a pleasant experience right through from breakfast to sleeping in comfortable beds. The Gin Bar for a sundowner is a must on the stoep amongst visitors from all over. Well done Swartberg Hotel, we will be back and do not forget the spa for a good relaxation!
