Lenna T. Couples Australia, July 2, 2014
Very nice. Friendly hotel.

Cleanliness, friendly staff, dining room very efficient.
We enjoyed our stay very much, it is an old hotel but well maintained, the only disappointment was that the windows could do with a clean on the outside. I would quite happily recommend the Royal.

Great except that they need to look at having a chef to do omelette and fried eggs during breakfast
