Join us for a family holiday this Easter and indulge in a range of gourmet meals, paired with luxurious accommodation, a kid’s playroom, option of a babysitting service and the beauty of Port Alfred at the Royal St Andrews Hotel.  

Where will the kids sleep?

59 Modern Wing rooms, some garden-facing with private patio areas, offer you everything you’ll need to keep the kids happy, ensuring that relaxation is top of the list for all.  In terms of sleeping arrangements – 2 sets of rooms are inter-leading, while for children under the age of 12, we can arrange extra mattresses to be placed in your room. Please discuss this arrangement with our team on reservation.

Amenities in each room: 

  • Complimentary high speed WiFi
  • Satellite TV
  • Climate control
  • Undercounter convenience fridge
  • Tea & coffee station 
  • Electronic safe

Our breakfasts are served in The Paper Nautilus, just off the lush courtyard adjacent to Reception. And even the fussiest of eaters will find what they’re looking for here: there’s a cereal and fresh fruit bar, cold meat selection with crackers, freshly baked pastries as well as a hot breakfast menu that includes bottomless filter coffee.

Lunches & dinners are served in either the Highlander Pub, or for a fine dining experience, Mom & Dad can book dinner at The Thistle Restaurant. As our signature restaurant, you can expect a food and wine pairing experience unlike any other, with views into the kitchen where the magic happens. The Highlander serves a range of pub fare including burgers and pastas along with a kiddies menu selection. And milkshakes! *Let’s not forget the milkshakes!

  • Explore the Kowie River by kayak or book a sunset boat cruise and enjoy quality family time in the outdoors. 
  • Spend time poolside at the Hotel and enjoy a book on one of the relaxing loungers while the kids spend time in the pool. 
  • Take a quick drive to Bathurst and show the kids the world’s tallest artificial pineapple: Bathurst’s Big Pineapple.
  • Book a day trip at Sibuya Game Reserve and experience the beauty not only of the Kariega River, but the reserve and the Big 5.
