The Royal Guest House in Port Alfred is set high up on the East bank of the Kowie River. Owing to its prime location, this guest house offers stunning panoramic views of the peaceful Royal Alfred Marina, and the quaint little town of Port Alfred. Close to the beach, and the Port Alfred River Spa.
The Royal Guest House offers 11 stylish en-suite bedrooms, furnished with natural weave and dark wood furniture. The cosy lounge is equipped with an honesty bar and a log fire, should the evening turn chilly. French doors open to a magnificent deck with a view and a pool, perfect for relaxation.
We have eleven standard & luxury rooms, all with ensuite bathrooms/shower, air-conditioning, 8 channels of DSTV, a mini bar fridge, tea and coffee facilities, telephone and hair dryer.
All are fitted with double beds and two of the rooms have modern, comfortable sleeper couches as well. The addition of a pair of bunk beds makes one of these into a very user friendly family room sleeping six.
The cozy lounge has a bar, television, recliner chair and plush lounge suite overlooking the marina. We also have a large log fire should the evenings turn chilly.
French doors from the lounge open onto a magnificent wooden deck (with pool and loungers) from where you can overlook the town and out to sea (sometimes spotting the odd migrating whale!)
