This a is a sister hotel to the City Lodge chain, but does not live up to the same standards. The room was tiny, smelly, had no elevator, so I had to lug my luggage up to the 2nd floor AND the staff offered no help whatsoever! This is not a place for anyone with mobility challenges. You have to...

We arrived and service was as can be expected. Once we arrived at the room it was definitely not clean. The carpets had lots of stains. When we pulled the bed sheets open, there were bed bugs everywhere. We immediately grabbed our bags and returned to front desk. We asked for our money back. They did not hesitate, asked why...

We stayed at the Road Lodge Airport Cape Town, after a terrible 34h journey from Europe. Even it was two o'clock in the morning they offer us a shuttle service from the airport. Service was friendly and very supportive. Even in the middle of the night they organized a cod for our little one. The room was clean, but quite...

The staff was very helpful and arrange a shuttle to the airport that was on time. BUT!!, for R621 you JUST get a room and nothing els.This does...

Good, clean, budget hotel, ideally situated close to the airport and car rental companies. Make a nice breakfast - hot and cold - friendly staff. They Use a shuttle company to get from the airport to the hotel and will arrange it for you. ZAR 35 per person. Good stop after a long trip.

We had a latte flight in to Cape Town and were too tired to travel anymore so we booked 2 rooms for the night. However the rooms smelt of cigarette smoke. I guess we can't complain for a check in at 2am and check out at 10 am the next day. Its convenient for a stop over but not longer...

How bad has this place become! Gardens not maintained! Reception staff that can't look u in the eyes! Beds that needed a new mattress months ago! Vending machines that won't accept notes! The "lodge" group have lost me as a client to this hotel forever! Clearly it's like a well oiled money making machine with no emphasis on the the...

If you need a stopover for an early or late arrival flight, this is perfect. Rooms were clean, well maintained and good, comfortable beds. Small bathrooms but perfectly adequate for what was needed. Evening reception staff absolutely atrocious but security guard more than made up for her abruptness and rudeness. Again, we weren't too bothered as was literally spending 7...

I use the Road Lodge each time I arrive in Cape Town, it is well placed within the airport complex, and provides a clean/basic service for an overnight stop after and exhausting flight. You can get affordable transport the short distance to the hotel using the sport 24 shuttle located behind the left escalator in the arrival hall. R30 at...

Easy shuttle from airport to the hotel, there was someone there to help with the bags. People make the difference here - our first reception person was miserable and unhelpful to be replaced later on by a person who was so nice, very helpful and could not do enough. Re-train the first one! Double room was not big but big...
