Dirty stained bedding and towels and pillow cases. Leaking showers bad odour. Pathetic for a so called 4 star guesthouse. False advertising... would not come back to this place. Needs maintenance desperately

the service was good! The breakfast was excellent. They even agreed to prepare breakfast for us at 3am. The gentleman woke up and we found breakfast ready. I would like to say Thank You. We will definitely stay there again when visiting Port Alfred

My stay at Royal Guesthouse was excellent. I stayed for one night while driving on the garden route. Rooms are adequate. Love the shower. Would prefer a door instead of a curtain on the bathroom. Breakfast was divine

The place is excellent and is situated in perfect secluded area and its ideal for couples as a romantic getaway. There is a nice package which I'm yet to see for a couple which sounded interesting and it included the boat cruse and back massages.

The overall service of the guest house was just too perfect. The staff was professional and efficient. The idea of cars left outside the property though, did not sit well with me even though the area seemed safe and there were cameras outside.

The Royal is a delightful property managed by Eric who is professional, helpful and friendly. The position is great and the special was very affordable over winter. The RGH would be a wonderful stay for the warmer weather with its view and stunning little plunge pool!
