Hier sit die manne in die Royal Hotel. Here sits the gents in the Royal Hotel. That is a song

We all grow up. We all have places to remember. Badger has a place. The Royal Hotel in Ladysmith. Many a Sunday growing Badger would go the Royal Hotel for lunch. It was a buffet lunch. The place has a British theme. Stepping into the hotel makes you go back in theme. To the British colonial days. The décor, bar, rooms, architecture. It makes you feel like the old days. As we all know Ladysmith played its part in the Anglo-Boer War. It gives a history type of vibe. As you are inside, it feels as if people from 1890s and 1900s are joining you for lunch. It doesn’t feel as if the times have changed. It is like stepping into the past.
