Overview

The Royal Country Inn in Dundee combines the benefits of modern accommodation with an old-world charm. Situated in the heart of the Battlefields, halfway between Johannesburg and Durban, it is the ideal stopover for weary travellers - a home-from-home with every comfort and amenity - as well as a convenient base from which to explore the rich history of the surrounding area.

Originally known as the Royal Hotel, this inn was established in 1886, just four years after the town of Dundee was founded by a Scottish coal miner seeking his fortune and destiny. Together, Dundee and the Royal Hotel built on their foundations, growing together, and today, the Royal Country Inn stands proudly restored to its former glory. Proprietors, Daniel and Motz Bezuidenhout, have been careful throughout its ongoing restoration not to lose the original charm and historical ambience.

The Inn has a total of 27 hotel rooms and 5 backpacker rooms. The hotel bedrooms all have en-suite bathrooms with showers, satellite TV and are fully serviced daily by our housekeeping staff. Our downstairs bedrooms (all with wooden floors and beautifully preserved pressed iron ceilings) open onto a peaceful garden courtyard. From the hotel reception and lounge with magnificent parquet flooring, a sweeping staircase leads guests up to more rooms, some of which have been dedicated to the recipients of the Victoria Cross at the battle of Rorke's Drift.

The backpacker rooms are sold at a cheaper rate - two very clean, communal bathrooms service the 5 backpacker bedrooms. They are comfortable, affordable accommodation for those travelling on a tighter budget.

Special packages are on offer for group tours.

Guest Comments

We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. Food was great and staff friendly.

It is lovely hotel, although Dundee is quite rough the hotel is an oasis. I felt very safe and well looked after thanks to the helpful and friendly staff.
