Albertinia Hotel - The ideal Garden Route accommodation between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth.
This charming and unique Albertinia Country Hotel was established in 1900 and has ever since built on an outstanding reputation for country hospitality and Garden Route accommodation at its best.
Its wonderful ambiance, food, comfortable accommodation and service has given the hotel a national as well as international reputation and it enjoys a three star rating by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa. The fine food served at the Albertinia Hotel has become something of a legend.
The experience offered here in Albertinia has remained of such a high standard over the years that letters of appreciation from present-day guests are practically identical to those of forty or fifty years ago.
One reason for the hotel’s success is that in over a century of existence there have been only six owners and it has always been a family concern. Traditions have been passed on and standards maintained.
The Home of Good Food since 1900. The food is perhaps the hotel’s greatest claim to fame.
The intimate dining room offers an excellent table d`hote menu with good wholesome home cooking. The extensive menu features traditional dishes while an a-la-carte menu is also available and the wine cellar is generously stocked with a wide selection of wines to cater for every palate.
The food tends to the traditional and is both delicious and plentiful. Bread is freshly baked on the premises. Recipes have been handed down from cook to cook as jealously guarded secrets. The reputation of the pickled fish, for example, has even spread overseas.
In his book “In Search of South Africa”, the British writer H.V. Morton was moved to mention Albertinia as a result of a meal at the hotel: "…and we plunged into that riot of eatables…"
In the days when the mail ships used to stop at Mossel Bay passengers were often transported to the hotel for a dinner. Our pub lunches and our shady tea garden offer a lighter alternative for travellers.
