Barons Palace

The Barons Palace Hotel reveals an era of affluence and opulence. The hotel was built at the turn of the century by a wealthy ostrich baron. High ceilings, ornate fireplaces and original ostrich plume showcases recreate an era of gracious elegance.

The hotel is split in two major sections where the Victorian Rooms and Pool Rooms are situated. All the rooms are equipped with air-conditioning or fans, tea and coffee facilities and hairdryers. Ironing facilities are available in the laundry room. Ascending the majestic staircase to the sweeping reception rooms and vast veranda, one imagines the lavish entertaining that took place in celebration of the flourishing ostrich feather industry.

Leading from the main building to the outdoors, one enters the intimate restaurant which specializes in local game cuisine. The atmosphere in this elegant area will ensure a hearty appetite. For breakfast and all-day treats such as pizzas, visit our guest breakfast area with its colourful dcor. Group menus are available on request.

The hotel is ideally equipped to host weddings and other special functions. It lies in close proximity to the famous ostrich show farms, Cango Caves, cheetah ranch and numerous other attractions. Enjoy a scenic drive over the Swartberg Pass to the hamlet of Prince Albert, returning via Meiring's Poort which is well-known for its interesting geological formations.

Reviews

  • "Overpriced - no service"

    28 March 2016

    "We booked the honeymoon suite as it was the only accommodation, other than camping available. At R3600 for two nights we thought we would be staying in the lap of luxury. Quite the opposite. It turned out to be an oversized HOSTEL room with some pieces of good furniture &amp; a spa bath. There was a plastic teaspoon on the coffee tray, no fresh milk. There was an extra single bed in the honeymoon suite. The room wasn't serviced by the time we got back at 15.00 and when they did arrive for service it, we were getting ready to go out for the evening.<div>You cannot move freely through the hotel as it has huge locked gates all over. Access to your room is up the fire escape steps at the back.</div><div>There is a filthy, smoky bar just below the honeymoon suite that plays extremely loud music until all hours of the night.</div><div>The breakfast is also presented hostel style.</div><div>I would not recommend this to anyone at that price. By all accounts it should have cost less than half of what we paid.</div>"
