Not the best location. Trucks on highway and trains may effect your sleep. I have been in much better facilities. My first impression was not that good. The staff on duty on arrival did not impressed. I will never let the Company book me in here again.

Whilst this is a 'budget' hotel coming at just under $50 a night, the accommodations are satisfactory. I waited a good 5-7minutes whilst the check-in staff seemed too busy on her computer before assisting me. The lobby/reception area had a strong industrial chemical smell reminiscent of a hospital or perhaps even a prison. I was on a non-smoking floor which...

Road Lodge is a very nice place, conveniently near the airport you could even walk if you travel light. Very friendly staff and welcoming staff. I had a 2-day stay and enjoyed my time - The downside is that you may not get lunch and dinner in the hotel. So you will have to walk out. The breakfast is great...

We stayed for four nights. Friendly staff. Neat, clean rooms and bedding. Comfortable bed. Shower worked well. Tiny toilet and basin. Free muffins every morning. Secure parking. Safe area. All round, a very pleasant stay.

I was booked into the lodge for business. O my gosh!! The smell of smoke was everywhere!! I was checked into a non-smoking room floor 1, and the smoke smell suffocated me. The friendly staff moved me to the 2nd floor - it was a bit better. But...with open windows after a while, I started with sore ears, throat and...

Thank you for staying with us. Sorry to hear about your initial room, but we’re glad to hear that our staff did move you and attempt to improve the situation. Alas, smoke is a pervasive smell that is sometimes difficult to fully overcome or control. We will certainly take your comments into consideration.

The room is so small the toilet and shower is practically within the room nothing separates it. The basin and toilet are really small which has a slide door , this place is rated 1 star so expect 1 star things. Getting there late at night also looked dangerous . It is not far from the airport.

Situated at N1 City (ideal for shoppers!), the Road Lodge is conveniently close to Cape Town and the Northern suburbs. We stayed for four nights and enjoyed friendly service from the staff. Guest have free WiFi and secure free on-site parking is provided. The breakfast (R75) is well-worth it and free muffins are available for departing guests in the morning.

Basic in as far as 1-star establishments go, which is to be expected. However the damper on all things is cigarette smoke filtering into my (non-smoking) room through the air vent in the bathroom. And there is really no way to shut it out as the bathroom is actually part of the room save for a sliding partition. They brought...

Thank you for staying with us. We’re sorry that the smell of smoke spoilt your stay with us. We will look into how we can limit the travelling of smoke from smoking to non-smoking areas as it can certainly be unpleasant for non-smokers.
