This hotel is ideal for those needing to take an early morning flight, or for those arriving late evening. The rooms are functional, clean, comfortable and provides a good night's rest. The lobby has a vending machine with some snacks and drinks, and a coffee machine. Anything more has to be ordered in advance for delivery to the hotel, or...

Excellent single night stopover close to the airport. Efficient and friendly. Very easy to walk to during the day and a cheap shuttle bus from the airport at night. The gate to walk from the airport is closed from 22:00 to 05:00. Breakfast was good and we quickly were able to get a shuttle minibus into the city.

Have stopped here on several occasions and my latest lived up to expectations. What I expected was a clean, cheap, friendly, no frills, easily accessible room for the night. After arriving on a late flight and picking up my hire car for a drive up country the following day this is the perfect place to rest up. Easy to find...

the room is fine and serves its purpose in terms of amenities, but the hotel doesn't really offer much. A vending machine with one or two items can be found in reception and room service is available. I didn't sleep a wink due to noise inside the hotel and I'm half deaf. People talking in the lobby until all hours...

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...

Thank you for staying with us. This really does not sound like the kind of cleanliness and service that we usually offer – we will definitely look into the points you have raised as cleanliness if one of our most important considerations.

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...
