Die Kasteel (The Castle) is a South African, Afrikaans-language television sitcom which follows the misfortunes of the hapless staff of a boutique hotel in Pretoria who have no idea how to run such an establishment.
Eckhard (Hannes Muller) and Tina-Marie de Wet (Dorette Potgieter) own a mansion in Waterkloof, Pretoria. Six months ago, Eckhard, stupidly invested in a Ponzi scheme that went under, causing them to lose everything - except their mansion.
Since then, the couple have converted their house into a boutique hotel. Now - with help from their airhead daughter, Michelle (Cintaine Schutte), their naive gardener, Wilson (Solomon Cupido), and their sarcastic domestic worker, Cecilia (Pulane Sekepe) – the couple have to host colourful guests, week after week, in the boutique hotel known as Die Kasteel.
There's just one problem: none of them know what the hell they're doing...
