As travellers through South Africa we found this hotel to be fine. Staff were pleasant, rooms clean and everything functioned. Shower was great. After a full days travel, eating at the venue was a very pleasant experience. Limited menu but delicious. Check in and out staff were very helpful. Would happily go back again

The check-in was quick, efficient and friendly. The room was clean and well appointed, and the bed wonderful to sleep on. A kettle and complementary tea and coffee was available in the room. The wi-fi was a hit with me. Very, very fast, which allowed me to FaceTime family and watch You Tube videos without any buffering. The hotel is...

I always enjoy the City Lodge group when travelling around the country, and this one in PE didn't disappoint. The location is good, opposite the sea, alongside the casino, and just down the road from shops, supermarkets and restaurants. Room was very comfortable with a bath, breakfast offers everything you could want with good variety - overall the perfect hotel...
