Yes, its a hotel wonderfully stuck in a time warp. And that being the case, it was an exceedingly interesting place to stay... full of curious relics from the past, some of which should definitely not been kept! For me, it was not comfortable at all. So the artifacts and the delightful staff, with possible exception of the receptionist who... More

This hotel is made of what can only be called "Old-world charm". It is excellent, and also surprisingly affordable. Good service: we had booked into the backpackers room, but were upgraded to a standard room for free, because they were not very full!

Excellent and welcoming staff, who gave us great personal service; really delightful people to whom nothing was too much trouble. We were out most of the day at the battlefields for which it makes a great centre because the hotel is full of memorabilia of that period. Rooms very comfy, and have been modernised with nice bathrooms en suite; its... More

We stayed here for one night in April 2014 on a rather circultous route from J'burg to Durban in order to take in some of the battlerfields. We had a very warm welcome at this old colonial-style hotel. There were three adults and three children in large two room family suite. The kids adored the wonderful verandered courtyard (and the...

The hotel is over 100 years old and is packed full of memorabilia. It is exceptionally clean and neat and maintains that old school charm. The service was spectacular and the staff very friendly. A standard breakfast was served in the morning and was great. The dinners are very well priced and a decent portion of food is served. Great... More

The public areas of the hotel are fantastic, so much to see. The staff are very friendly, but sometimes don't deliver due to slight language issues. Used this as a base for visiting he battlefields. The food is very well priced, but sometimes lacking in quality. Breakfast was great on both mornings. The room was a bit tired and dark.... More

A wonderful warm welcome here. This is an elegant, old fashioned hotel, with all modern comforts. Immaculate, and delightfully atmospheric. It is in fact one of the oldest buildings in Dundee. The rooms are very comfortable with everything one could wish. I had a room overlooking the charming courtyard, where it was very calm and peaceful. If you explore a... More

We spent two nights staying at the hotel, widely stated to be the best in Dundee (which I suspect is true). However, it is a small provincial hotel that has been there for many years. My bed squeaked like crazy and was very saggy. The TV had only two volume levels that were close to acceptable, one too quiet to... More

If you want a base from which to travel to various battle field sites, Royal Country Inn is a good one. The inn was established in 1886 with modern renovations starting in 1999. The inn has very nice, compact rooms with wood floors and high ceilings and lots of storage space. The bathroom was bigger than expected; had good water... More
