Very friendly staff, clean room and bathroom with lots of natural light. Excellent breakfast. Well situated. Nice splash pool to cool down. Just check the bar tab as others could write the wrong room number next to what they have taken from the honesty bar.

Port Alfred is a lovely coastal town with museums, pubs and a stunning coastline. The Royal Guest House is situated close to the beach, or guests can relax at the small swimming pool and enjoy the views. As their are quite a few stairs, I recommend this guesthouse for younger people and couples with bigger children. Breakfasts are great.

Rooms large and clean, plus the bathroom very bright and clean. Very good full english cooked breakfast. Good lounge and pool area with an honesty bar. Not much of a view but at the beach most of the time. We would use them again!

I did expect more as the Guest House is rated with four stars. (Some confusion there, as all the advertising boasts 4 stars, the plaque outside the Guest House has one). In my opinion, the establishment should be no more than one star. We stayed in room 1 and found it to be very average, with various maintenance issues in... More

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.
