About The Royal Hotel

Situated in the heart of Durban, The Royal Hotel provides unfailing hospitality by offering butler services to all customers, outside catering and an energetic customer focused team. It boasts a superb range of restaurants and sophistication is the keynote throughout the rooms and suites, which offer panoramic views of the city and yacht mole.

Situated in the centre of the city of Durban in KwaZulu Natal, the Royal Hotel exudes luxury from another era. For 150 years uncompromising service and unfailing hospitality has been the cornerstone of the Royal Hotel. This ethos has grown stronger over the years through colourful times and tumultous evolution.


Sophistication is the keynote throughout your Royal room or suite, where a subtle blend of yellowwood and royal blue colour schemes, graciously complemented by rich, sophisticated decor, create an atmosphere of comfort and splendour. Breathtaking panoramic views of Durban add to the overall ambience of the bedroom, and the exquisite finishes of your adjoining bathroom ensures you remain in the height of luxury.

All rooms have selected DSTV, direct dial telephones, air-conditioning and heating, and tea and coffee making facilities, re-enforcing the goal to ensure a convenient stay for all. Mini bars are a standard feature of all suites, with fax machines, and in-room internet available in our executive and penthouse suites. A butler service is available on two dedicated floors and The Royal also provides a floor of accommodation for those women travelling alone, as well as non-smoking floors.


With six unique restaurants and a choice of three upmarket cocktail venues, The Royal offers something for every taste - from the casual to the superlative. Together, The Royal's dining venues offer dining of an international standard, from classic cuisine to creative light meals.
