Noisy, tiny rooms, no hot water, one pillow and little blanket, very close to the casino so you hear a lot of traffic all night. The beds are tiny and hard. Shower floods so water all over the...

Stayed at this hotel on the way from Cape Town to East London and back. Its good value - rooms are small, but perfectly adequate for a stop-over night.

This is the 3rd time I have visited the Road Lodge in PE. The staff are friendly efficient and the rooms spotless and affordable. You only pay for the room so if you two it really is great value for money. They now offer a great breakfast.
