Travellers' Choice
"The grand old lady finally has her new dress on" is what the locals said when The Royal was refurbished and upgraded to the highest standards in 2005/2006. After serving more than seven generations, the oldest hotel of the Western Cape occupies a very special place in the hearts of both local and international visitors.

My husband and I spent one disappointing night at Royal Hotel. We were accommodated in a garden room that was worth a 3 star grading, very small room with a dismal view, no mirror in bedroom, had to ask for hairdryer which was supposed to be in room. No coffee in tea/coffee provided. The ensuite bathroom was really nice with both a bath and shower and Charlotte Rhys soaps etc. Breakfast was satisfactory but we won't stay there again rather go to one of the charming B&B's

The colonial style makes this hotel stand out. We stayed here over Christmas Eve, when everything was closed, but had a good time regardless thanks to the hotel’s ability to Accommodate for food requests. Lovely staff and service.

The hotel has a wonderful colonial feel. We stayed in a king suite. These are newish. The suites have their own patio plus sitting room and a fire. The good points include a wonderful veranda where breakfast was served. The breakfasts are wonderful, fresh and delicious. The produce is of a good quality. The hotel bar is great with huge choice of gin and other spirits. Great for a night cap. We did not get to use the pool. But the beds look comfortable and there were umbrellas for shade. The only constructive criticism I would offer - the carpets in the King Suite we stayed in - No1 - do need a clean and refresh. Would stay again.

First concern was that there was no secure parking - there is a car park but no security. My room was dark, dated and the room door not closing fully - it was located far from reception and down some very steep steps - not easy with a suitcase. Staff were kind and considerate but sadly the drinkers on the veranda or perhaps it was the guests in a room nearby were not - easy to hear fully conversations. Sadly I will not be staying again.
