Drostdy Hotel Graaff Reinet
In the heart of a town with a rich history and immense character, the finest Karoo gem, the Drostdy Hotel and Wedding Venue, can be found. This town, Graaff-Reinet, was established in 1786 and has become a sought-after destination for its country charm and hospitality, and is well-known for its blend of Cape Dutch, Victorian and Karoo architecture.
The Drostdy Hotel, built in the early 1800s, has its own fascinating story and has been refined over the years into one of South Africa’s top 10 hotels. Although it bears modern touches and a contemporary atmosphere, it remains true to its roots, with furnishings and antiques that allude to its history. She is the grande dame of the Great Karoo and the ideal retreat to celebrate your special occasion.
Magical moments await in the heart of the Karoo. Drostdy Hotel hosts weddings in this spectacular region of the country on the basis that all hotel rooms are booked specifically for the occasion. The property boasts an array of characteristics, from lush gardens and pools to beautifully decorated rooms featuring antiques, which present exquisite photograph opportunities. Fully inclusive packages for weddings or events are supplied upon request.
