Western Cape, South Africa
The grand old Royal Hotel is located in the village of Riebeek Kasteel, in the heart of the Swartland. Famed for its broad and long wrap-around veranda or ‘stoep’, The Royal Hotel, with sweeping views of the Riebeek Valley, is the oldest and longest serving colonial hotel in the Western Cape of South Africa. Sitting on the ‘stoep’ of the Royal Hotel with a glass of Chenin Blanc, the unofficial drink of the Riebeek Valley, time has been known to stand still as you savour down-to-earth Swartland hospitality in every sip.
