We Are


Porterville lies on the slopes of the beautiful Olifants River Mountains approximately 140km north from Cape Town and 26km off the N7.

Porterville was established in 1863 after Frederick John Owen subdivided his farm, Pomona, into plots. The town was then named after William Porter, the Attorney General of the Cape.

The area has a winter rainfall with storms rolling in from the Atlantic coast in the west. In winter snow covers the mountain peaks. The summers are dry and hot with powerful thermals, making it the ideal location for paragliding enthusiasts.

The region is famous for the rare Disa that flowers only once a year. The Blue Crane is also a regular visitor to the area. Dramatic rock formations with rock art paintings and natural rock pools are some of the sights visitors can expect when visiting the "Groot Winterhoek" Nature Reserve.

Porterville is a picturesque town that offers hospitality and diversity to its visitors.


The Hotel is being continuously refurbished and this has started to bring the hotel back to the standards such a boutique hotel should aspire to.


All areas of the hotel are planned to be updated and a conversion of an old wing to residential units will commence soon.

In early 2022 a new and exciting diner (old American style) will be added to the offering at the hotel, and which will serve as the breakfast venue for staying guests. This will greatly enhance the breakfast offering for guests and clients. The diner will be open from 6.30 am until 10 pm, every day (excluding Christmas day).
