Royal Guest House
Ranked #7 of 27 Port Alfred B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 July 2016

The Royal is a delightful property managed by Eric who is professional, helpful and friendly. The position is great and the special was very affordable over winter. The RGH would be a wonderful stay for the warmer weather with its view and stunning little plunge pool!

Hi Tony,

I am so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the Royal Guest House and what we have to offer. You are correct, we are perfectly situated within walking distance to the beach and the marina to enjoy boat cruises/paddle boats in warmer weather.

We hope to welcome you back soon again.

We checked in seamlessly. Our special requests were quickly taken care of. The room was clean and comfy. The breakfast was great. No red wine in mini bar though. Not much milk either but no big deal as pick and pay was nearby. View from deck was lovely. Nice and quiet too.

I would not recommend this to anyone especially if you are on holiday. We were there on business and would arrive late everyday but we still had the joy of experiencing the unpleasantness of the place. It really was more on the food though. They Must improve.

I stayed here in April 2016. Online photos are misleading to me. Towels were dirty, room telephone did not work, the television and airconditioning was faulty. Noise levels were extremely high from guests and a spa which was setup outside my room. The main entrance door was constantly slammed. Parking was a constant issue!
