The Swartberg Hotel

A charming, country hotel in the heart of Prince Albert

The Swartberg Hotel is one of the nicest country hotels in South Africa.  Established as a hotel in 1864, the Swartberg Hotel is now one of 19 national monuments in the village.

Accessible from the N1 and Route 62, this is the ideal place to base yourself to explore the Karoo, Oudtshoorn,  Swartberg Pass, Meiringspoort and many other attractions of the area.

Prince Albert is a biker’s and mountain biker’s haven with all the exciting routes available for the adventure seekers! Get away from the pressures of the rat race and relax in our beautiful gardens, treat yourself to some spa pampering or catch a show at the beautiful Showroom Theatre.

We also offer a well equipped gym for in-house guests and a meeting room for board meetings and small conferences.
