Royston Hall Guesthouse - circa 1897 - is a stately Victorian Manor House that is deemed Superior and listed with the Historical Council. We have two resident Great Danes and a little girl sausage dog who will welcome you effusively and add to the homeliness of Royston Hall. Nestling in its own small Private Nature Reserve it overlooks the Umzimkulu Estuary with the Indian Ocean twinkling in the near distance. This romantic property lends itself to quiet rest. We offer 7 spacious double rooms en suite and one tiny single en suite for the single traveler who is just passing through. Regret no children. This YOUR time! Our breakfasts are well-liked and prepared according to your preference. We serve beautiful dinners by appointment on arrival. Picnic baskets for couples may be arranged too. We can arrange for a Sundowner cruise up and down the Umimkulu River - or in the morning, of course. Its just more fun with a drink and snacks you may provide for yourselves. You could do river fishing from the 1km frontage we own or beach fishing at the famous Sand Spit where the whales have been seen to come and birth their calves. Deep-Sea fishing/or Scuba Diving can be arranged by prior notice.

The beautiful historic house set in a little forest with an unobstructed river view creates a relaxing atmosphere. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. Good value for money. The food was good too.

Was wonderful to stay in this historic home. Our room was spacious and the wonderful breakfast served on the veranda, surrounded by bird life. Home is quiet and if you are looking for a break from city life with a trip down memory lane this is a place to visit.

Such a beautiful place. Spacious room with stylish decor and attention to detail Ria was kind enough to give my son and I seperate rooms. We had the upstairs area to ourselves. The views of the river are amazing. Didnt get to use the pool area but property well maintained.

Fantastic property and good value for money. I’ve stayed at the accommodation on multiple occasions and the consistency is second to none on the delivery of an outstanding service. I will be sure to return in the future should I be in the region again.
