Always excellently prepared rooms, delicious food, great service, friendly and helpful staff. Great location, close to the V & A waterfront and the highway. It provides a lovely view next to the water channel.

Amazing service from arriving at the airport till checkout. We will definitely stay here again. Rooms are very clean. Hotel is close to the waterfront, about 15min walk. Breakfast was good but maybe just a bit expensive. Overall our experience was excellent.

we stayed at this hotel for 7 nights while enjoying Cape Town....the room size was a bit small, but not a problem....the bathroom could have been larger, but there was both a tub and good size glass shower..the room was clean and had a coffee pot, but no frig....this is not a 5* hotel, but in my opinion it was just as good as any 5* hotel we have stayed in.....the staff is wonderful...extremely friendly and helpful...we didn't eat any meals there as we loved being able to walk to the V&A as well as Bree Street and DeWaterkant....you can walk to the V&A along quiet, scenic canals...the pool and the sun area are TINY...do not stay here if you are looking for a large outside pool and sundeck....for us, this hotel was perfect....thanks to all of the staff😀

This hotel is just everything in terms of value for money! The rooms were very clean, new furniture, good quality linen. Location is also super, we walked at night to /from Waterfront, very safe. Please consider the noise and this is a very center of CT surrounded by highways and people walking to/ from their work early morning and late evening. But, V&A is not a quiet place overall! Extremely clean, friendly, fresh, convenient! Lekker Food!

Great location, sufficient parking, catered for cyclists, good WiFi offering, food quality was good, service in the restaurant needs to improve, had to ask for another room as first one smelt of cigarette smoke, Second room was clean and comfortable, but had no view, no bar fridge, the TV set is small and the TV channels are very limited. Will consider staying at this City Lodge again.

Excellent value for money. We were impressed by the friendly yet professional staff, the yummy breakfast and lovely room! Covid protocols in place, we felt safe. Easy access to the Waterfront. I'll be happy to stay there again - was a pity to check out after only 1 night.

Refreshingly friendly and efficient staff which lead to a memorable stay. It was so worth it! The canal and access to the canal boat added some extra pizzaz to a very comfortable stay. We could park the car safely and only used it again when we left. An absolute winning combination. thank you!

Our shower was blocked and the water pressure was not satisfactory. We were showering with cold water for the duration of our stay. We had to wait for of peak hours to get hot water which was also just lukewarm It felt like a University hostel. We reported the situation and only the blocked shower was resolved. There was not enough towels to put into our room during housekeeping services. We had to wait for towels to be cleaned
