Zamadonda X. Couples South Africa, March 1, 2015
appalled at the dilapidated hotel
not pleasant at all. initially when i was assigned a room, the tv didn't work and it faced dull set of buildings, when i was moved to another room, the towel in the bathroom stank badly! the drainage of the shower was terrible as you pretty much swam in the water, the room wasn't cleaned at all on saturday 28th feb,after i even asked mr shezi at reception to arrange for it to be cleaned when i left around 12 midday. i came back to a dirty room. on sunday,i needed an iron, well, after waiting for about 45 minutes, the iron was finally brought as i was on my way out - with a demand of a r50 hiring fee! apparently the hotel only had one iron available! on saturday,whilst paying at the umvoti toll plaze, i was phoned and reminded that i had just left the dining hall after having breakfast-which was a complete error as i hadn't even had breakfast there. this hotel was fine in the past,but it has really gone down - a lot! when i reported all of these things, i was merely told "sorry" and then life went on. oh well, that's me and the royal hotel, no more in the future.

Excellent Room, Nice View and cousy beds
The stay was very restful. We spend most of the night partying at local clubs and had restful night afterwards. Please change your TVs to flat screens. The stuff was very helpful, the rooms were neat, and everything was perfect.
