Accomoodation for Comrades Marathon at the Royal

Ideal Location for Comrades Up run which starts at the Durban City HAll
Comfortable - convenient location - staff made a concerted effort to help the guests get sorted out for the Comrades Marathon. Things to improve in my opinion include the following Lifts were not adequate to service demand during peak period Quality of towels etc in Bathrooms below expected standard
Kediemetse M. Business travelers South Africa, June 1, 2015
My stay at the Royal Hotel

The food was great (They ensured that we athletes had breakfast (at 3am) before we went for the marathon) and prepared each one of us some snakc (Energade drink, a snack and a banana).
It was very comfortable, I enjoyed my time at the hotel.
Stephen S. Solo travelers South Africa, June 1, 2015
Tired hotel, but good value

Good value, great location, good views
Overall I had a comfortable stay. The front desk staff need to be pulled up though.
Tshifhiwa R. Couples South Africa, June 1, 2015
Excellent hotel to stay during Comrades up run.

Best location for Comrades up run. Menu geared for runners. Clean room
Good the one problem was the airconditioning which did not work very well. We had to open Windows but it was too humid.

June R. Couples South Africa, May 24, 2015
A gracious old lady from a bygone era

Our waiter in the breakfast room, Patrick. What an absolute gem. The bed was very comfortable. The view from our room.
There was only 1 staff member on duty when we checked in, resulting in quite a wait. However, when we checked out the service was very much better with your check out lady being very on the ball and helpful. The duty manager was also wonderful. I can't speak highly enough of Patrick, our waiter in the breakfast room. What a gentleman and asset he is to the Royal Hotel. Our room 1935 had no safe. My daughter's room 1938 had no hair dryer and my friend's room 1936 or 1937 only had one bath towel. Sad that the surrounding area has deteriorated so badly. Mind you, the view of the harbour is still spectacular.
Paseka M. Couples South Africa, April 27, 2015
we wanted a self catering hotel
I didn't enjoy staying for long there, as we were expecting. We usually cook for ourselves and we never had the chance to. nothing that impressed me and my partnering.
Dominic N. Families with older children South Africa, April 27, 2015
Poor service

Breakfast waiters were excellent especially the old man.
Bad, I was made to pay for 2 members of the family. When I booked the site asked me for number of rooms only and told me that each room takes a max of 2 adults. I'm terribly upset about that. Either Agoda has to improve otherwise I won't recommend them at all.
Linda C. Families with young children South Africa, April 5, 2015
What a pleasant surprise- enjoyed the stay.

Clean and spacious. The view. Staff were very helpful
Thank you to all staff for making this experience a life time to remember. Everybody was friendly and the rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious. I will go there again on a unplanned visit and a visit for a few days as a break away. The hotel is one of the best memories for us all.
