Hotel shut but replacement was excellent
Hotel Kipling is shut due to COVID-19. The hotel had booked us at Hotel Royal, which is another operated by the Manotel Group and within two blocks of the Kipling. The service we received was excellent all around. Lunch was a bit pricey but plentiful in servings and rich in taste. Breakfast was continental (bread, juice, eggs, fruit) and not buffet. It was very hectic around the time we ate but the staff did their best to accommodate the guests meal requests. Will stay again, given the chance.
