Very clean hotel with friendly staff. Good Conference facilities. I liked their rooms they are very clean and spacious. They also have a free wifi. The food is nice more especially their breakfast. Management is also flexible to the accommodate individual clients needs.

If there was a way to give a less than 0 review I would. I visited the hotel on 05 to 06 May 2016. I didn't have hot water in this winter morning and all I was told was, and I quote by the coloured guy at the reception "the person above you finished all the water". No apology, nothing.... More

Strategically located in the heart of polokwane town, this hotel is class and value for money. Rooms are clean, equipped with fridge, flat screen tv, some paid channels, air conditioning and a safe. Though road to enter hotel is one way, hence one have to drive round hotel to access the gate. The fridge was unplugged before I checked in,... More

We stayed in Polokwane Royal for 2 nights. Although they claim to have a 4 star hotel, reality is that it is 2-3 stars max. Room was smelly, roomkeycard didn't work (and they couldn't fix it), the receptionists where blunt, breakfast was terrible and so on. We wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone unless your expectations are mediocre ;-).

We just had a less than satisfactory stay at the Polokwane Royal. At arrival, we were told the room we had booked (with king bed) wasn't available, as they "had not understood our reservation" - we had made the reservation by email and it had been confirmed. The building where our alternative room was located was a complete mess, with... More

My first impression - impressed. However the 4 star rating is deceiving. We were traveling as a group on business and wanted to have sundowners, the Royal doesn't have a liquor license. The bedroom was well appointed. The TV channel selection is limited to SABC and etv, no DSTV. The bathroom was not good at all. The basin plug was... More
