Thinking of planning a weekend getaway with your significant other or the kids? Why not escape to where the warm winter sun makes midday beach strolls a pleasure…where a river cruise offers a cool breeze and beautiful riverside landscape … where you can indulge in a pub meal beside a crackling fire and retire to a luxurious room for a peaceful and warm night’s sleep?

Visit us at the Royal St Andrews Hotel in Port Alfred; we have the perfect getaway for you with our winter special packages, created to ensure a relaxed stay.


  • Visit us on weekdays and pay R1050 per night for 2 adults sharing, including a gourmet breakfast. On weekends, pay R1250 per night.
  • Travel with your family and enjoy a 2-night escape for 2 adults and 2 kids under 12 sharing, and pay R2400. This price includes daily gourmet breakfasts as well as a R300 voucher for use at our on-site Camelot Spa, or towards meals and drinks at the Highlander or The Thistle Restaurant.

*Both packages are for our Standard Luxury Rooms, with upgrade opportunities should you wish to stay in a garden facing or Heritage Room in the original part of the building. Valid 01 May – 31 August 2017.  

The Royal St Andrews Hotel has something for everyone with three on-site restaurants and spa, and activities such as a round of golf, relaxing beach walks and visits to the small boat harbour are within close proximity.

The Royal Port Alfred Golf Course is situated opposite the Hotel, a mere chip away, and offers beautiful views across the ocean with chance visits from smaller wildlife along the course.

If golfing isn’t your ideal escape, indulge in relaxation at our on-site Camelot Spa where weekday Hotel residents receive preferential rates. De-stress, re-energise and transform your body, mind and soul into a phase of rejuvenation and wellness.

Take a walk along our Blue Flag Beach known as Kelly’s Beach, explore the coastline on horseback or book a cruise up the Kowie River.

Adventure enthusiasts will be happy to know that the winter months offer the best visibility for diving. June and July specifically offer the best visibility, which can be up to 20m on exceptional days.

If staying warm and dry is your preference, you can still experience the beauty of the area by following the route from Woody Cape to Alexandria. This road takes you along the ‘golden mile’ from Cannon Rocks through some of the country’s finest dairy farms, past Woody Cape and the southern hemisphere’s largest shifting dunes.

End your day with us in front of a crackling fire at the Highlander, our iconic pub where you can savour a glass of your favourite pinot, or enjoy a pint of our specially brewed Highlander Lager. The Highlander is open Monday – Sunday from 10h00 till late.

We cater for a fine dining experience too with our award-winning signature restaurant, The Thistle, open from Wednesday to Saturday. All dishes are infused with flavours, textures and combinations that are out of the ordinary. Join us and indulge in your favourite wine while watching the action in the kitchen through a glass wall built specially to infuse a different taste to the experience.

Bookings at The Thistle are essential and an experience not to be missed! To book your indulgent stay with us, email or call our front desk via 046 604 5400.
