Stayed there with my family, the rooms were neat and clean, the staff are very friendly. Breakfast is excellent we really loved and enjoyed our stay. We'll definately come back. Big ups to Leo and his whole team.👍👍👍

this was our 2nd stop on our honeymoon and totally NOT what we expected. going from GOLD (Mansfield Game Reserve) this was an total let down. hope they will improve for future gusts but we will not be going there anytime soon

The rooms were lovely,clean as well.The staff was very good as well.The breakfast was also good.Please try to renovate the entrance door it is not attractive as a result the minute i saw the entrance door i lost hope that the place was lovely.

The service was very good. The breakfast was also good. We also enjoyed the Spa treatment and boat ride. The boat ride Captain was very good and informative about the area of Port Alfred. Parking facilities were not very good.

Very pleased. It was a short notice booking and everything was fine. I left really early in the morning and the breakfast was not yet served but the kitchen staff was very friendly and gave me a yoghurt and some to enjoy on the go.

Next time we come for business again I would definitely come to The Royal Guest House again. We are planning to come there for a long weekend. I posted fotos on our facebook and people commented on where it is andin how much it costs.. So I hope they go there to support them like they have supported us!

I would like the Guest house to have more variety on breakfast. Otherwise everything was excellent clean, relaxing environment. Rooms are clean and housekeeping is done. Friendly staff. I would really go back anytime.

Conveniently situated accommodation to Port Alfred. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Our room was on the noisy side, but other rooms could well be quieter. The manageress was particularly helpful with a request for a late checkout at no additional cost

Would rather stay at the top rooms than the bottom ones. Better view and much bigger. Breakfast was good. Rooms serviced at any given time. Great views of the ocean and Marina. Beds are super comfortable. Linen not changed for long stays though.

Hmm...this was rather disappointing! The glass doors at hotel entrance are cracked and the entrance wooden stairs need some maintenance. Luxury Room 1 was certainly not luxury. It needs TLC - carpets and ceiling needs some maintenance, curtains are different lengths, the dstv decoder was dangling on the TV cord, shower door needs adjusting and the bathroom can do with new mirrors and retiling. Would have preferred sealed bottled water as to a water flask. The internet photographs make it look all so luxury but it's actually not's more a simple standard room. Overall it was disappointing but the bed was ok, staff were friendly and breakfast was superb!
