Everything one should expect for a city hotel. Nice location. Friendly staff. Great view from the Boardroom and good coffee.....always a winner. Only a pity that in-room dining is outsourced. Not too great quality. But the hotel breakfast is great.

I don't expect above standard from City Lodge. I did however at least expect clean towels. I generally check the towels before using them, but to my utter disgust only after using one, did i realize I didn't look hard enough. Dried pooh stained towel...completely horrified and disgusted. I was in total shock that i even forgot to take a... More

It is one of the good hotels in Port Elizabeth. It has a good location and more suitable for people who wants to spend some time in the beach or go for a walk along the beach. However, unfortunately, the attitude of some people in the hotel was poor. Of course some of the staff are quite good and cooperative.... More

Citi lodge is a generic standard hotel with the minimum offerings that you would expect. However I got a smoking room and that was absolutely fabulous will definitely return. The restaurant offers basic but nice food

Although there are no sea facing rooms in the City Lodge, which is a pity, it's location is perfect for walks along the promenade in either morning or afternoon and for eating out at nearby restaurants.

As far as possible, I stay in City Lodges, and usually eat in the coffee shop. I am particularly fond of the one in PE as It was my introduction to the group in the late 80's.

This is the perfect destination if you are on a business meeting, but simultaneously it is in walking distance to everything.
