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.

Durban Vibes

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.
Tebogo L. Couples South Africa, February 16, 2015
Unhappy with staff service

Comfortable, clean, centrally located
I requested an iron on the first day of checking in and I had to ask 3 times and eventually had to leave an hour later when it was evident that my request was not going to be honoured. There was only 1 lady working at reception and we had to wait for close to 30 minutes before checking in and the lady was very defensive when we complained about the long wait.
Zunaid H. Couples South Africa, February 15, 2015

Centrally situated and room had view of whole bay

The close proximity to the city centre. Beatiful bay view from my bedroom window. Beautiful decor and peaceful surroundings.
I enjoyed my stay and extended for 2 more nights. Quite peaceful and serene inside. Beautiful though old furnisher. The large room was cleaned daily and linen changed daily. Staff were always courteous and willing to go the extra mile.
