Beautiful lodge with a lot of history and interesting artwork. Very comfortable rooms and very nice bar, breakfast and dinner options. Staff and management were very friendly and helpful. We were even offered ear plugs since our rooms over looked the main road. I ended up not even needing them, it was very restful. Would definitely stay here again.

If visiting the battlefields what better place to stay? As walk ins on a hot Saturday afternoon once we'd tracked down a receptionist we were made very welcome. The rooms are quaint and comfortable and the whole places oozes Victorian charm from the Union flags (and others) bedecked bar through to the dining room and various shaded planted courtyards. The...

The hotel is so well kept we were thoroughly pleased to walk through the door, with highly polished wood flooring and tastful displays of the... More

Our family of four enjoyed a wonderful two night stay at the Royal Country Inn last week. The history of the hotel and the rich detail of the region's history were fascinating to all of us. The best part of our stay was the warm welcome Motz (and Charmaine) gave us at the front desk. Also the refurbished room we... More

The original hotel dates back to about 1886 but has been renovated into a modern hotel with an atmosphere in keeping with the old British Colonial era. The present owner has included many artefact’s paintings and sketches of the Anglo Zulu & Anglo Boer Battlefields. The rooms although basic are clean & comfortable and reminiscent of the era, there are... More

This is a very old-fashioned sort of place with a real colonial atmosphere. The hospitality was excellent and the food great. We arranged a personal guide to take us to the site of Islandwana and Rorke's Drift and they provided us a with a delightful picnic.

The hotel was established in 1886 and boasts wonderful old world charm. The hotel is filled with memorabilia from a bygone era. The coin collection from all over... More

This wonderful old fashioned hotel dating back to 1886 is full of Battlefields artifacts. The service is amazing, the food great and the friendliest hotel in the world. I am about to stay there for the 11th time.

This is a lovely, old hotel, full of atmosphere. It is quite dark and dingy in places and could definitely do with a lick of paint. Our room had no water initially because "a mouse has probably got into the pipes" ... yikes! The lights in the corridor were left on all night which, due to the window over the... More
