“Fantastic Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2012

Clean, comfortable bed, powerful shower, friendly staff sum up my 4 night stay at this hotel. We booked 3 rooms and have no complaints whatsoever. I think its the smart choice for budget accommodation in cape town. There is a mcdonalds,kfc, checkers hyper nearby. Cape Town is a 15-20 min drive away. I would return.

Room Tip: rooms facing the train line might have more noise

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2012

We stayed at the Road Lodge here solely because it was decent priced accommodation close to Grand West. We were there for the Michael Buble concert - amazing. This was my first time staying at a Road Lodge. It was three of us sharing a room. Space was minimal of course and they don't actually advise 3 adults per room. But it ended up working fine. We were in the room only when sleeping and getting ready to leave in the morning. The truth is a one star can only get so good. The only negative I can think of other than space (even for just two people) would be the fact that the staff gave us a smoking room with out asking - which we changed right away after walking down the smokey corridor. It wasn't too difficult to find and the staff were very pleasant.

Room Tip: Great for a decent priced one night close by to Grand West. Non smoking!

Give us a lift!

We stayed on our last night as the proximity to the airport is second to none, You can walk to departures in around 7 minutes. But you may spoil a grand vacation if you really need to secure your place on the plane. We don't like smoking rooms and don't like vending machines nor prison.

However it is friendly, it is cheap and it is efficient, but if you fancy a KFC from the airport for your evening meal then think twice.

Room Tip: As there is no lift to hoick your luggage up then ground floor I think
