The building is good and the rooms are clean, but I was disappointed to learn that I had to pay a hefty R60 for parking and WIFI is available at a cost. These are basics that should be available as part of a 4 star...More

I was upgraded to a suite which was awesome. Just a pity about the water shortage as I couldn't make use of the enormous bath. Town lodge is close to Long Street and market square so very convenient. It only took me 30 minutes to...More
Good location, clean hotel no frills service. Cant really complain. For what you pay you get more than your moneys worth. Highly recommended. Decent breakfast, and friendly staff. I would definately stay here again.
The pictures of the standard twin room are accurate. We stayed here on a tour and were satisfied with our stay. They had all the basics and a little more than I have seen in American hotels. The breakfasts were very good lots of choices....More
This hotel has a very interesting décor. It is extremely highly decorated inside, giving the appearance of a very high class hotel. The lobby has a very strong odor of cigarette smoke all the time, and I don't know why. When I was there, an...More

As to whether or not the hotel is within walking distance to the Waterfront would depend on your level of fitness to The Victoria Albert [VA] Waterfront it is short hike of 4.5 km [2.8 miles] which took us 45 minutes including looking in store windows, at the harbor, and boats.
The route we walked was to come all the way down Signal Hill following the road past the shack town till you are at the bottom then take Jordaan [Family Name not the Country] to Dock road follow Dock road to W/Quay Road follow W/Quay till you reach the VA Waterfront Dock Road will take you along the Canal and W/Quay along the rejuvenated harbor area it is a nice walk through this area.
On the way there Jordaan is mostly downhill with Dock and W/Quay road being fairly flat.
The hills you walked down including Signal Hill will test you on the way back and of course the shack town area that you passed through on your way down can be tricky to navigate with your shopping on your return trip.
It was a very enjoyable walk for us and I can recommend the walk to the VA Waterfront just be watchful for the normal street problems you have in any city but after a long day of shopping and chilling at the Waterfront I would catch a cab [taxi] for the return trip.
