Would rather stay at the top rooms than the bottom ones. Better view and much bigger. Breakfast was good. Rooms serviced at any given time. Great views of the ocean and Marina. Beds are super comfortable. Linen not changed for long stays though.

Hmm...this was rather disappointing! The glass doors at hotel entrance are cracked and the entrance wooden stairs need some maintenance. Luxury Room 1 was certainly not luxury. It needs TLC - carpets and ceiling needs some maintenance, curtains are different lengths, the dstv decoder was dangling on the TV cord, shower door needs adjusting and the bathroom can do with...

This location of the property is good because its close to many amenities, i just think that the turn off sign from the main road should be made bigger in order for it to be visible for those who cannot see far.

The interaction with the day manager was very poor, service and quality of poor standards the room was not aired properly damp smell. Will not even recommend this place to anyone, for the price and quality you can get a better hotel at St Andrews like 3km away.

We enjoyed our stay at the Royal Guest House. Bernard was extremely helpful and accommodating and his friendliness was much appreciated. The rooms need a general upgrade, but everything was clean and in good order.

Very disappointed in the establishment - glass doors at entrance cracked and require replacing. To get to Room no. 8, we had to walk through the dining room - dirty plates were seen. Air conditioner in the room was not effective and certainly the 'luxury' room allocated is in need of maintenance i.e. carpets are smelly and need replacing, ceiling...

We received a commendable arrival welcome. Unfortunately, it was short-lived as the level of quality control and service deteriorated. Management was aware of the inconvenience of operating a heavy, broken blind across a double window to access the patio, but made no effort to assist with repair. Water leaked from the shower to the bedroom. House-keeping services were inefficient; a...
