The Royal Hotel

Riebeek Kasteel

With 150 years’ experience the Royal Hotel has developed into a very popular wedding destination in the Western Cape.
The tranquil and picturesque setting of Riebeek Kasteel as well as its proximity to Cape Town makes the town a hidden gem that more and more couples choose to be their unique choice of wedding destination.
The Royal Hotel caters for the middle to higher section of the market while our prices remain affordable. We offer the perfect setting for those who truly want a special day as well as for endless photographic opportunities, both indoors and outdoors. Due to its history, grandeur and decoration, there is little required to make this setting unique.

Up to 150 guests

The Royal Hotel offers an expansive garden complete with amphitheatre where the ceremony can take place. There is also the 150 year old barn style conference room, while the church is located just next to the hotel.

Pre-reception Drinks
While the wedding couple go their separate way for the photo shoot after the ceremony, the guests usually gather at the Royal Hotel on our expansive stoep (veranda) with a glass of bubbly and canapés in hand.
Another popular area for guests to relax while the couple are on their photo shoot is our outside bar area, pool deck and outside lounge with breath-taking views across the Riebeek Valley and Kasteelberg.

Wedding Reception Dinner & Dance
Although the whole hotel is at your disposal, most couples choose to have the dinner (and dance) at the lower and upper terrace. Combined with the lounge area which can be opened completely, we can cater for up to 150 guests. All our weddings are unique and the dinners are all tailor made to suite the likes of the wedding couple. With direction from you, we come with suggestions and together we will create your perfect wedding.
