The Royal St Andrews Hotel, Conference Centre & Spa continues to honour a reputation of traditional hospitality dating back to 1924. The beautifully restored original building is home to the iconic More Highlander Pub, The Thistle Restaurant and 9 “Heritage” rooms. A central courtyard and garden create a link to new facilities – a state of the art conference centre, 50 contemporary bedrooms and a Camelot Spa. The Thistle Restaurant is ideal for an intimate dinners or special occasions. The Thistle Restaurant is by Reservation only. We regret that no under 12’s are permitted. Dress code is smart. The Highlander Pub is a traditional pub featuring its own locally brewed craft beer and a Gastro Pub menu. The Paper Nautilus is a casual first come, first served style eatery overlooking a stunning courtyard and garden. A great meeting place for a scrumptious breakfast. Less

We really enjoyed our short stay in your hotel. Our room was quiet and peaceful and we were not disturbed at all. The food we had was excellent and the service was first class. The overall cost was very reasonable. Thank you for a pleasant stay.

I just wanted to find out if you offer a buffet breakfast for people not staying at the hotel. I found a buffet menu on a website for the Paper Nautilus Deli Breakfast and I just wanted to find out if that was still available or if it was an old menu. I'm also interested in a new menu, pricing and times please. I tried contacting the hotel via email 2 weeks ago but have not received a reply as yet. I'm planning a trip to Port Alfred and would appreciate some info before the 28th of July 2018
Good afternoon Angel3585, Thank you for enquiring with Royal St. Andrews Hotel. We only do a Continental Buffet Breakfast daily. Guests then order one Hot Breakfast off our A la Carte menu. The cost for this in total is R105 during the weekend and the weekend price is R140.00 per person (with an upgraded continental buffet and including a glass of sparkling wine). I hope this helps? Please do not hesitate to contact me should you require any additional information or assistance. With many thanks and warm regards, Difford Louw Royal St. Andrews Hotel.

"A real treat are the older rooms inside the hotel.Charm beyond measure.A real prince had stayed there too. Big, spacious with modern twist."
"The views from the rooms are very pleasant as the landscaping is modern and very professional."
"Garden facing is good."
"if you a late sleeper, don't choose bathrooms with windows, as this may disturb guests due to early morning light flooding into the rooms."
"Something not overlooking the car park if possible."
