Royal Hotel Review

This Fiji institution opened in 1852 and little has changed since. It's the country's oldest operating hotel and is today run by the same family that founded it. The first floor has a large, comfortable parlor room, a dining room, and a dedicated billiards room where you almost expect to see ghosts chalking their cues. The bedrooms are very basic and befit the turn of the 20th century with wooden shutters on the windows, antique dressers and beds, and simple en suites. Seaside rooms, for the same price, have great waterfront views and the corner double has a large outdoor seating area. A small restaurant serves all-day breakfast and a movie is shown nightly. In the front and side garden, six cottages of various configurations surround a small pool but unless you really have to cook, we recommend not passing on the chance to check into a piece of history.
