Family Holidays at the Royal Portfolio

The Royal Portfolio is a family run business and that's why it's so important to us that even though we are a luxury travel product, families can enjoy our properties.

As a general rule, children over 10 are welcome at our hotels so as not to disrupt guests that may wish not to be around young children. However children of all ages are welcome in the Royal Suites and at Africa House on safari at Royal Malewane, at The One Above and at The Silo in Cape Town and in the Vineyard Suites at La Residence in Franschhoek.

The best way for families to enjoy The Royal Portfolio properties is to take exclusive use of the hotels.
