I had a really great time at the hotel.The rooms are spacious and the staff is friendly. I would go there anytime and will most definitely recommend it. The vintage style gives it a little something extra.But the parking is expensive!

I had a lovely time at the Royal, I am looking forward to bring my family the next time around. Their hotel gives you that sense of Royalty, I am a bit concerned about the food though as well as their room service staff.

The rooms were cleaned every day. The breakfast was great. The WIFI is also good. I definitely recommend this hotel. The hotel must put new air conditioning and adding gym facilities will make even better.

I stayed at Royal Hotel from 4 to 8 December 2016. I was very disappointed from the check in to to check out for the duration of my stay. Check in had unfriendly and inexperienced staff.

We did not receive assistance with the aircon when we asked reception as we could not switch it on. We got a room with 2 single beds instead of 1 double bed. We waited almost an hour for room service and we were very hungry at the time.

The room presented to us was awesome. We found it to be clean and modern. The Spa service was exemplary, thoroughly enjoyable. We were surprised that the dinner option was not taken up by many other hotel guests, so we opted to remain in our room and order room service. This took longer than was expected, and our champagne was...

It was great to be a guest in your hotel. Please was the windows as they give bad reflection. My dad came to see where im sleeping and the first thing he noticed were dirty windows. He told that his hotel has clean windows. The hotel was nice and quiet. I really enjoyed it. I'm sure will come back again.
