This was the best place to be in for our Couple's Retreat. We arrived later than we were expected. The staff was very friendly especially Brandon was too kind. He helped to settle in and he was very helpful with directions and checked up on us to make sure everything was going alright. Give that man a Bells! lol!!! Brandon was the 1 who helped us with the Specials that the River Hotels have the 1st time I called and told him we having a couple's retreat I was just looking for accommodation. Then he told us they have a River Royal Special for Couples. which included bed and breakfast, massage and a boat cruise.

The place was beautiful it met our expectations. all 6 couples were happy with their rooms. breakfast was delicious we really enjoyed ourselves we would definitely come back again.

Thank you so much.

Room Tip: The luxury rooms are large and have both bath and shower

the service was good! The breakfast was excellent. They even agreed to prepare breakfast for us at 3am. The gentleman woke up and we found breakfast ready. I would like to say Thank You. We will definitely stay there again when visiting Port Alfred

My stay at Royal Guesthouse was excellent. I stayed for one night while driving on the garden route. Rooms are adequate. Love the shower. Would prefer a door instead of a curtain on the bathroom. Breakfast was divine

It feels like home. The welcoming is indeed welcoming. their rooms are spacious and neat. You would not believe that you had been put in one room. its huge and neat. Everything is close by you. The meals are nice and breakfast, they serve everything. I cannot but mention how efficient is their cleaning team. you know, we booked for two nights and usually the second night when you come to the room you notice that the room had been used previously, with them it is as though you had been assigned to a new room. perfect guys!! and the staff is nice and friendly
