“Good location for business travelers.”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Typical 'business hotel' in great central area of Cape Town. Rooms were average sized and was neat and clean. It had a full bathroom better than most 3-star hotels in it's class. Breakfast was fantastic. I arrived late and decided to have supper at the hotel restaurant which was disappointing (same as other City Lodges I have stayed at) - I think most City Lodge hotels really don't cater for anything more than being a type of B&B. This is a typical 3 star business hotel although situated perfectly for holiday / leisure I would not recommend it for holiday purposes (unless you are only looking for a room at a fairly good rate considering the location).

My wife and I booked in at the end of the Easter weekend, immediately after the Two Ocean's marathon. A group of fellow Zimbabweans had been staying here, whilst we were with family friends in Somerset West.

It was great to be within walking distance of the Waterfront, and the stadium, as we took a few early morning 'recovery' runs out by the sea.

Sadly our requested room with a view had a view of the scaffolding immediately outside the window, but hey!! Not a train smash.

Over the years we have thoroughly enjoyed the various City Lodges we have stayed in, receiving excellent value for money, and V&A was no exception. Much appreciated was the hot fresh coffee at reception at 5.30, getting ready for a run, and the hot tub/pool on the deck in the evening.

Will we be back - you betcha!

Room Tip: Ask for the mountain side if you want quiet. Overlooks the car park. I prefer to keep my curtains op...

Great value. Newer hotel, good breakfast selection, polite staff. Clean rooms, tiny TV though! Nice to have tea and coffee in the room. Travel desk was helpful, however sent us to a Malay restaurant which was closed on Sunday! Will recommend this hotel!

Good basic hotel with comfy rooms and nice breakfast. It's a bit noisy if your room faces the road to the Waterfront so try to get a room numbered 50 or higher on each floor. In walking distance to the Waterfront along a safe road and to the city centre so well situated.

It was a pleasure of staying at the City lodge V&A Waterfront last weekend. Rooms were comfortable. Front desk staff were very accommodating and all round, it was a friendly atmosphere. I would definitely be staying there again.

As first trip to Cape Town we were nervous as to the safety of the visiting SA, but needn't have been worried, normal precautions aside we found Cape Town to very safe and very interseting place to visit. We stayed at the V&A which is a character hotel, staff were very helpful & obliging. Close to the tourist centre of the waterfront very safe walking out and close to good selection of restaurants which were good value for UK but expensive in comparison to non Waterfront restaurants.

Breakfast buffet at the hotel really excellent.

I had the pleasure of staying in this great hotel 26/05 - 28/05/2014.
When i drove into the parking i was waved at with a friendly smile from the security, then the door was opened for me into the lobby of hotel.
The reception staff where fast, friendly and efficient.
At first i was given the wrong room but after going to reception, it was sorted outed very promptly, the room was clean spacious and very comfortable !
Great service all round 20 out of 10 !
Well Done Guys & Girls !
