We were warmly welcomed by Rosemary and shown to our rooms. The room did not have a view but the views from the deck were stunning. The breakfasts were grean and nothing was too much trouble from either Rosemary or Natasha. Thoroughly enjoyed my 3 night stay at the Royal Guest House.

The Royal Guest House in Port Alfred is conveniently located not far from East Beach. It is within walking distance of the new marina. My room was on the lower level. It had no views to speak of, but the room was lovely and large, with a very ample corner bath/shower room. The outside temperatures were in the mid 30s... More

All facilities are in good working order and comfort and cleanliness comes first. The hearty breakfast prepared by the smiling staff gives you... More

We were warmly welcomed both when we arrived and later in the evening, the night watchman was very pleasant and opened up for us. Our breakfast was excellant and very nicely presented, we will most certainly be back.

We have stayed at the Royal Guest House more than once and have enjoyed each visit more. The friendly but professional service from all the staff is definitely a differentiating factor at this small but classy boutique hotel.

Nothing to write home about. We were warmly welcomed and the room was fine, though in need of some maintenance. The bulb was fused in the bathroom and no one replaced it after we asked. Noise was a problem: we were woken each morning at 6 by staff laying out breakfast in the dining room, and thereafter shouting outside our... More

They were informative about what to do and see in Port Alfred, they always had a smile on their face and never complained about assisting. Our room was very large and extremely comfortable.... More
