Royal Hotel was established by John Mclntyre at the turn of the century and said to have originated as a church in Maputo, where it became too small for the congregation. Its corrugated iron walls were hauled overland to Pilgrim's Rest and re-erected for the hotel. Typical of a prefabricated building.
