Hi Guys This the second time I have stayed in this hotel. The first time was great. We experience a rather poor attitude from the restaurant staff this time including the manageress. It felt like they were doing us a favour by serving us even though we had booked months ahead of time. The barman however was very accomodating and...

As a stop over on a road trip between Pretoria and Cape Town we decided to stay at the Swartberg Hotel in Prince Albert. I was pleasantly surprised as to how well equipped this hotel is...its a large establishment and has a gorgeous modern swimming pool and well equipped gym at the back, and is larger than it seems. Our...

The main hotel is an historical building with plentiful character. The rooms are large and the bathrooms are adequate, offering a shower only and no bath. The showers are large though. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are very clean with fresh towels supplied daily. There is a TV in the rooms with limited channels. The rooms are all...

We spend the night in the hotel in one of the rooms. Decor beautiful. Aircons, pool and pool towels available. Secured covered parking. Garden cottages looked ideal for families with children. Fully stocked bar. In the hotel itself wooden floors were noisy. Rooms also not soundproof so we could hear the people in the neighbouring rooms talking and moving around....

Stopped for lunch in this picturesque old town. Sat on the terrace out front. Delightful architecture, friendly service, tasty food. Large quantities - probably larger than most UK appetites would expect. Recommended

I arrived this week on Tuesday afternoon and the young man Heizaan and the manager Nikki looked after me very well, even when they were busy on the phone. I had booked a single room which was already upgraded to a double room from the management. But the room had no balcony or even a big window, which I need...

After negotiating the Beautiful Swartberg Pass you need a Pitstop. No better place to stop at a watering hole. (DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE!!) Our group had refreshments and a bite to eat. Sitting outside we could enjoy the beautiful weather and watch the "Hustle and Bustle" of the town. After a well deserved break we headed back to Sedgefield
