About Royal Country Inn

The Royal Country Inn in Dundee combines the benefits of modern accommodation with an Old World charm. Situated in the heart of the Battlefields, halfway between Johannesburg and Durban, it is the ideal stopover for weary travellers.

The Inn offers a total of 29 bedrooms, 24 of the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and we have five backpacker rooms. All rooms feature satellite TV and are fully serviced daily by our housekeeping staff. Our downstairs bedrooms open onto a peaceful garden courtyard and some of the rooms upstairs have lovely little balconies overlooking Victoria Street and the beautiful garden. The backpacker rooms are comfortable and affordable, and feature two communal bathrooms shared between the five bedrooms.

A large dining area opens onto small courtyards on either side and in the corner of the garden there is a lovely shaded area where one could enjoy a cup of tea or coffee, or even a lovely meal. Join us for a drink at the resident pub, the Garrulous Griffin. The pub bursts with charm and atmosphere, and is highly conducive to a quiet night at the pub counter.

There was no water in my room as a result the toilet couldn't flush(had to ask for the toilet at the reception) and I couldn't take a bath/shower.

Interesting colonial style hotel full of Boer War and Zulu War memorabilia.We chose this hotel because of its proximity to the Battlefields area and our friends were enthralled by the information and artefacts from the Wars. Accommodation and food was good. A pleasing place to stay for history buffs, we will revisit.

Adequate, but in need of some renovation - especially the bathroom. Linen was rather worn with holes in the duvet cover.
