The reception was professional and courteous. The room is comfy and homey. My room is by the pool and close to a kitchenette which makes preparation of meals easy. I am yet to have breakfast and will update my review in the morning. All in all, its great value for money

Parking is a problem but the place itself makes up for the inconvenience. you are welcomed like an old friend and you immediately feel at home. Once in the room you will find it very clean with tea and coffee available and a fridge with cold water. The pool is nice and clean and will be a pleasure in summer... More

I have visited this place my times and always receive excellent service from Lee and Marie.Rooms are always clean and tidy.And the breakfasts are good.I will always return.The only problem is the parking space.If you go out for dinner you might not find a suitable parking space when you return.

On our way through to the Kruger from Graskop, we stayed a night at the Royal. This was our first stay at the Royal and it was a treat. We were welcomed like family and shown through to our rooms. We had three rooms for our group, which all surrounded the inner courtyard and swimming pool. The swimming pool was... More

We recently stayed over at Marie on our way to a wonder Kruger National Park visit. Rietjie, Marie and the staff were very friendly, wonderful hosts and made our stay as comfortable as possible. We can recommend Royal Game Guesthouse to any traveller passing through Phalaborwa.
