Functional and Nice

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 14 Mar 2017
Stayed at this hotel to attend a conference. It was a new hotel, and had nice finishes. Room and double bed was small (I suspect it was a three quarter bed) but adequate. Nice laminated floors in room. Room was beautifully cleaned everyday.

There is no lift, so if you have a heavy bag, or are disabled it could be a big challenge to get up the stairs. Breakfast was not included. They don't have milk in the rooms, only coffee creamer and when I asked them to buy milk for my tea they refused. Pathetic!

Check out their rules/terms of conditions e.g. iron use within 30 minutes or you have to pay a fee etc.
Date of stay: March 2017
Room Tip: Try to get a lower floor (Not third floor) as it can be very noisy when it rains. also remember-...

We spent two nights at the Regal Inn. We were attending a tournament in Durban a fare distance from Ballito but were happy we did. Peaceful after 2 long days in Durban. We arrived late and left early each day so did not spend alot of time at the inn. The rooms were comfortable clean and well maintained. Would think this establishment ideal for conference groups and more the business person. The reception and staff were always friendly and helpful. All rooms have tv coffee and tea facilities, air conditioning and DSTV. Secure parking and 3km from the beach.

Clean room with AC for hot summer.

Rooms are quite small and hotel is very busy during peak times, but nice place to sleep.

Very affordable and well-managed.

Not close to the beach (not walking distance).

If you are looking for value for money this place is it. It's situated close to malls and is a short drive to the beach. The beach is fantastic.
There's no elevator in the hotel so pack light. Breakfast is also reasonably priced. There's a common microwave that one can use anytime.

Staff are friendly and very helpful. Free secure parking is a boon.

We enjoyed our stay.

I looked for a reasonably priced stopover on the internet. The Regal Inn came up as the cheapest in Ballito and although its in a business area, its conveniently located close to shops and places to eat, and quiet, clean and comfortable. At half the average price of Ballito B&B's I was pleasantly surprised. Friendly staff, quick reception. I cant comment on food because I didn't eat in.

Rooms were clean, no bad reviews regarding this however that is where the good comments stop.

The Hotel had no:
Pool
Restaurant
Bar
Room Safe
Mini bar
Decent space for luggage (no drawers and only three coat hangers for my wife and I in an exeedingly small wardrobe)
No lounge where one could sit and chat with friends (Two chairs and a settee in the check-in desk area)
Chatting and laughing after 2100 was forbidden and resulted in being told to make less noise on the one occasion that we transgressed. At my age of 80 I don't make much noise in any case.
Located at the bottom of a Mt. Everest type climb to any restaurants other than a fish and chip shop opposite the hotel, not a good combination for eating and walking for a person of my age.
There is one other good feature of its location and that is its proximity to a hotel about 400 metres away which does have a bar and a pool and there is no mountain to climb to get there.

Room tip: Toss a coin

Dear Mr Jack C,

I thank you for your review of our hotel and am sorry that you were not impressed by what we have on offer. At a rate of R480.00 per room per night ( sleeping 2 persons) in a clean, comfortable room our target market is for the lower to middle income group . The hotel that you mention charges more than twice our rate and one has to still climb up a hill to get to the shops and restaurants.
Details of what is on offer, our location and pictures of our establishment are displayed on our website and may be viewed before a reservation is made. I was on duty for most of the nights during your stay and witnessed you ,together with your friends, having your supper and drinks in the dining room . On more than one occasion it got very loud. We have a strict no noise policy after 10pm and ask guests to be considerate of other guests who are resting at this time. Being school holidays, a lot of parents booked into our establishment with young children. Our policy is listed on our terms and conditions which is presented to guests upon arrival at our establishment. Should any person deem this unsuitable to their needs ,they are most welcome to seek alternate accommodation.
