For the price, you can't do much better. This budget priced lodge is very close to the Kruger gate and offers safe and secure parking, decent breakfast, and helpful staff. All in all, if you are looking for a basic room to sleep between game drives, this will do quite nicely. This isn't a posh resort you'll blow your entire...

Arriving on a Sunday afternoon at a guesthouse has always been risky... You never know what to expect... Not at Royal Game, the owner was on hand in a professional and friendly manner. The room was well appointed and comfortable. Then supper rolled along... Seriously delicious food and old fashioned excellent service. The owner, even advised me the next day...

It was amazing! The rooms are big and clean in good localisation not far away from the Kruger Park. And the lovely service!!! Helpful and very friendly. We didn't have any car, they organised everything for us and we could enjoy the safari. Thank you so much. I hope see you again

I stayed here as a lone traveller and was made to feel at home by the staff. The room was clean, comfortable and air conditioning was good. Location is walking distance to the town centre, and staff will help organise game drives. Pool is small but tranquil....no wild parties interrupting the peace. Braia (bbq) is good, although I went out...

Recently visited Phalaborwa on business,which is an annual thing and I stayed at the same place as the past 2 years since the place is amazing. Staff members are so helpful and friendly even assisted in iron some of my clothes. The chef their is amazing and I would definitely recommend a stay here.

What a nice place to stay over. Not our first time and definitely not our last. We love it. Clean, modern and friendly. Loved our room and 24 hour security. We will recommend this place to anyone. Coffee, tea and fridge in room.

Very clean and comfortable rooms with good facilities and lovely aircon in the 45 degrees weather.

Nice varied breakfast served. Pleasant area outside to sit...

When I first arrived I thought it was Fawlty Towers - breakfast finishes at 8am, check out by 9am, parking gates locked at 10pm, do not set the air con below 18 degrees or use the number buttons on the TV remote to change channels! Having said all that the rooms are compact but comfortable, and breakfast and evening meal...

The reception was professional and courteous. The room is comfy and homey. My room is by the pool and close to a kitchenette which makes preparation of meals easy. I am yet to have breakfast and will update my review in the morning. All in all, its great value for money
