                  We spent the night before the ride at the Royal manor Hotel. They were very accommodating with all the kit and assisted in getting our vehicle to Maclear for us. Supper was very tasty although I was expecting the lamb kebabs to be more substantial.

                  I commend their attempt at creating a beautiful spot in the middle of nowhere, but there are some key areas that need attending to. No hairdryer in the room, no hand towels or small towels to wash hair with and the bath towels were very small. The Dinner was the most disappointing and perhaps with the location and seasonal establishment they cant be expected to have great dining.

                  Pragtige plek met baie goeie diens. Die hulp met die opdra van ons bagasie na die eerste vloer was wonderlik. Heerlike restaurant en interressante winkel in die gebou. Personeel uiters vriendelik. Selfs ons wasgoed is gedoen teen geen ekstra koste. Dink nie daar is beter verblyf in Barkley Oos nie.

                  Royal Manor rated well beyond our expectations. Spotlessly clean, characterful hotel with electric blankets that kept us toasty on an icy winters night. Scrumptious breakfast was included in the price making our overall stay excellent value for money. The restaurant serves great dinners and the pecan flour rusks on sale in the cafe are delicious.

                  What a beautifully restored and decorated hotel with welcoming and friendly staff. Our suitcase was taken up the stairs for us. The room, Dohne, was pristine and cosy: the heater was switched on. I appreciated the electric blanket and other finer touches. The WiFi worked well. Our dinner was served in the dining room where a fire was lit in the old fireplace. I would definitely recommend this beautiful hundred year old hotel.
