My stay in Ladysmith Royal Hotel
My stay at the Royal hotel was so amazing, the rooms and the bed linen was so perfect. The breakfast was delicious, but I have a suggestion to make about the fridge in the room, they must put fridges in the rooms and include the payment in the room's fees. Regards Janet
