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.

This is our third stay with this wonderful establishment, and we will definitely be back. Friendly, welcoming staff and a great location. Good value for money, especially at a time where the locals are the ones supporting tourism. The property is in good condition and everyone is doing their bit to keep it like that.

After a journey through the breathtaking Meiringspoort pass between Oudtshoorn and the pretty town of Prince Albert, we overnighted at the centrally located Mont d’Or Swartberg Hotel. It is a charming and beautifully restored historic building with well cared for features. Beds were comfortable with good linen. Both the room and all public areas were spotlessly clean with all Covid-19 protocols in place. All staff were extremely helpful and friendly - at the time of reservation and during our stay. They have lovely well-tended gardens and the swimming pool was greatly appreciated after a hot day of travelling! This hotel is highly recommended and good value for money. The highlight of our stay in Prince Albert was watching a movie in The Showroom, a recently restored Art Deco design theatre. It is gorgeous and an experience not to be missed!

Enjoyable, but a lot of things to improve for a 4-star hotel. Staff should be trained to have knowledge about the surrounds, the Karoo in general, history, things to do, local game ranches and national parks, art galleries, neighboring towns, dirt roads to Gamka Dam, etc.

We stayed for two nights in the Mont d'Or Swartberg Hotel. It was a lovely experience: a clean and comfy room, efficient and friendly staff, delicious food in the hotel and in the coffee shop. We relaxed on the 'stoep' with coffee and we also had a good gin at the gin bar. We will definitely visit again!

This is a well-positioned hotel with beautiful, impeccable bedrooms and a large swimming pool. The breakfast was delicious. We travelled during Covid-19 level 3 and much of the town was closed which was pity. Would like to return and would stay here.
