Just stayed 2 days at this hotel. We had no idea where to find the hotel but we called and they briefly explained without any difficulties also about a late arrival (around 8.30 pm) everything was well in order and neat. Breakfast simple but good, choices between yoghurt or bread with eggs and wors. At the ground level we could...

I've stayed at all the Road lodges across South Africa, all of which are decently accommodating with helpful staff but this one really disappointed me. I was running late for the check in time due to my long journey and traffic. I called to inform the lodge of my slightly late arrival . They told me they cannot hold my...

Thank you for staying with us and for your review. We're glad you found the hotel to be neat and well maintained, but we're sorry about other aspects you raised, mainly regarding noise created by other guests/visitors. While we do try to limit these disturbances, it can sometimes be difficult to enforce. We will certainly see what can be done...

Loved it. What more can I say, they were so helpful and efficient. Rooms were clean, reception was friendly and understanding. Didn't have a chance to book breakfast though so I can't comment on food. Security at the gate was professional and I felt safe upon arrival. My bed was converted and I didn't have to ask. That's proactive especially...

I spent a day here, arriving on a morning flight, then flying out in the evening. The somewhat bland exterior masked a truly lovely hotel inside. The staff were wonderful and accommodating, the food was good, and everything - although not luxurious - just worked. When I return for longer I would certainly consider this hotel.

I had a school group visiting this hotel for a one night stay. The rooms were clean, the staff were friendly, the checking in and out went smooth and efficient. We felt safe at all times and the managers were very accommodating regarding special requests. Even the continental breakfast (as advertised) included sausages and scrabled eggs additional to the menu....
