The Royal Coach

From R280 PPS



The Royal Coach is situated in the historic gold mining village of Kaapschehoop and is the original coach that Queen Elizabeth II travelled in on her visit to South Africa in 1947. The Royal Coach is ideal for visitors looking simply to get away and relax and for wanderers seeking new viewpoints.

The coach consists of three wood-panelled comfortable bedrooms furnished with three-quarter and double beds. One of the rooms has an en-suite bathroom while the other two rooms share a bathroom; they all have baths. Our rate is a bed only rate as there is not a kitchen in the coach. There is a coffee station, with a kettle, a microwave and a small fridge. Coffee mugs, teaspoons, linen and towels are supplied.

Meals are available at the Salvador Bistro,which is open from 07:30. The bistro is famous for wood-fire pizzas and a cosy fireplace in winter. There are also a number of other restaurants in the village.

Kaapschehoop is a fantastic venue for photographers, birdwatchers and nature lovers, and is the ideal romantic setting as proven by the frequency of weddings in the town chapel. Birdwatching can be done at the Blue Swallow Nature Reserve and guests can book a guided tour to seek out the endangered birds. Various other animals can also be seen including a vast selection of flora and fascinating rock formations.

There are a variety of nature walks, a Waterfall and mountain bike trails within walking distance, as well as a horse trail facility located 8 km from the village. The town provides a convenient stopover for travellers making their way to the Kruger National Park or Mozambique.

Guest Comments

There are no lights in the coach. Only rechargeable lights which last for 30 mins and dont supply sufficient light anyway.
- Allan Viviers

There are absolutely no facilities(eg kettle, cups, fridge etc) available to guests for them to even make a cup of tea or coffee,or heat up food that has been bought. Blankets on beds were insufficient, I was extremely cold. Not value for money.

Quaint accommodation in a perfect location
