Cape Town was chocka block full with tourists and conference delegates. Our guest house had overbooked. Nowhere to sleep at 9.30 at night! We tried 6 hotels. All full. Then we phoned City Lodge... they asked us to hold on and they moved beds around and waved a magic wand and found (or created?) us a room! They bent over... More

I have stayed here before several years back and re-visited it because of it's position, close to my work / meeting place (University of Cape Town). It is easily the most accessible hotel from the airport and centrally placed so that it is quick and easy to get anywhere in the city (traffic permitting). Rooms are not overly large -... More

After a mix up at City Lodge Grandwest we were referred to their Pinelands hotel. What a wonderful stay. The staff were so friendly and accommodating. Our room had a sleeper sofa to accommodate our children but was still spacious enough. The room was impeccably clean and the ladies who tidied up after us each day were superstars! The rooms...

Room and amenities are great for a comfortable stay. Hotel is very convenient location just of the N2 from Cape Town to Cape Town International Airport and Somerset west. Good breakfast buffet for the business traveler.

Stayed two nights September 2016, Staff great and rooms very good. Free WiFi. Did not eat in the hotel. Good business hotel. Busy revamping the old bar and restaurant and hope it is as good as many years ago when finished. Not sure when it will be completed.

To much noise and over priced for a hotel that is located centrally for businesses and traveling. Rather stay in a guesthouse before book again with them. There's no communication between staff even if you arrange beforehand a late check out. They will still phone you to tell you not asking that it's time to check out.

The room was immaculate, crisp white bedding, great bath and shower. The bed was comfortable and overlooked the pool. We only spent two nights but thought it was worth the room rate.
