Drostdy Hotel, Graaff-Reinet, temporary closure
Thursday, 17th May 2012
The landmark Drostdy Hotel, nestled in the heart of the historic town of Graaff-Reinet in the Great Karoo, has closed in order for extensive renovations to take place.
Since 1806, when the Drostdy was established as the local magistrate’s court, it has been subject to a great deal of change and restoration, as a private home and, from 1977, as the Drostdy Hotel.
Over the years it has become widely recognised as one of the top heritage hotels in South Africa, enchanting countless travellers with its unique old world charm, and serving as a gateway to the rich history and magic of Graaff-Reinet and the Great Karoo.
The Drostdy Hotel will be re-opening towards the end of 2013.
