2/10 Poor

Our company made a reservation for a business associate, 16 September 2019, based on reviews and pictures of the Guest House. I booked the superior room for the guest, thinking that it will be of the highest standard rooms available. What a disappointment for our guest and embarrassment for us as the company that made the booking. Smelly room and shattered glass above shower. Unfortunately I will never recommend this Guest House to anyone.

Staff was not in the premises when I checked in. And also on my check out there was none at the reception. I just had to leave. Furniture requires repair.

Room 1
Very comfortable, good service and good value. The room was fine except the is not door for the toilet and bathroom limiting privacy in the room. Also there was a lot of noise from the dining and patio area that came into room 1 .

4/10 Fair

Not Royal at all!
It was possibly Royal a while ago. We booked 2 De luxe rooms with balcony: there was no balcony and no views, only electric fences. The hotel is not in good shape: the deck needs repairs, one stair is blocked with bricks. The room description says: minibar and bath robe - we are still looking for them. We arrived at 6:15pm. Only a security person was there. Impossible to claim about the rooms and to get info about where to go for dinner. And in the morning impossible to see the manager: nobody comes before noon. Breakfast people were nice - they do what they can - but breakfast was poor with basic items (Nescafe, etc)
