Fernando Jacks wrote a review Feb 2021

I'm not sure if the smoke detector in the hotel was working, because there was a strong smell of smoke coming in through the extractor fan in my room. The room itself was spotlessly clean and the fact that the window opens on such a wide angle allows plenty of fresh air to come in. Security at the gate was stern yet courteous and this made me feel safer, especially with the company car parked outside.

Beds are not comfortable, they are stiff. Shower room and toilets are very small.
Menu especially for supper is very limited.
I once had a non working heater in my room and it was cold.
I also had people gaining access into my room to check in while i was sleeping, i spoke to reception and they couldn't explain what happened and how.
Staff is good though, they are friendly.

Conveniently located, 5 min from FNB stadium where we needed to be for the Ride Joburg 947 Cycle Race. The place was clean, safe, quiet and the staff was friendly.
The lodge was also close to the mall.

There was lots of noise throughout the night, we could bearly sleep. We complained to the assistant manager and he was very rude, he dropped a phone on us. we had to check out at 2 am. the guy who was staying in a room opposite us, had his door open, talking loud on the phone, drinking alcohol. There were lots of students making noise throughout the night in the corridors. no one reprimanded them! i wasted my money!!!

September 2013 was the 3rd year I spent at Road Lodge Southgate as our annual Bible Conference is held in JHB. The service of this hotel staff is excellent. They really go out of their way when you require assistance.

Safety is also one of their top priorities.

Good to see the same staff there year after year.

We have used Road Lodge Southgate to accommodate delegates for training since August this year. Our last interaction was on 25th October when my team and i had a "thank You" breakfast. The service was excellent. Feedback from our guests from East London was that the staff went out of their way to assist wherever they could and really went the extra mile. I would recommend any business person and family for a quick stay-over. Breakfast was good - but no choice of bacon or sunnyside up eggs :). Just a good wholesome simple breakfast.

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 reservation. Nonetheless when I got there I found everything in order. I had problems with noise on the first night and second night. around 1am i informed the reception of the people consuming alcohol and making a noise outside my window as well as the excessive noise coming from the floor that my room was on. The receptionist assured me that the hotel policy is no disturbances after 10pm and he will sort everything out for me. Unfortunately the noise continued till after 4am and I continously called receptionbut NOBODY ANSWERED!!!! The receptionist bluntly just ignored my calls. For me,that was disappointing and I checked out early that morning.
So if you are okay with inefficiency with regards to my issue then you will find no problems with the hotel as it is neat and well kept.

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 to improve this.

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. Overall value for money. I will use this hotel again in the future.

I spent a night at Road Lodge Southgate and it was a one of a kind experience.
Sad that there isnt any elevators and there wasnt any smoking rooms available.
Lovely room, not too big, just what i needed to rest and forget about my surroundings.
Friendly staff, always willing to assist and offer a lovely breakfast.

Overall i'm going back again soon.
