Was okay, except for the fact that we had a bunch of soccer students partying in the passage way at 10pm. We were also woken up with a fire alarm when someone decided to exit the building using the fire scape. It is very close to restaurants which was good.

This Hotel which is actually more of a motel, is good if you need to stop on your way, room was very small but seemed to be clean, tiny CRT TV, shower strangely positioned (most probably due to room size), it is definitely not a business hotel, good for a needed stop on the road and so is the price

We stayed on the round floor for 4 nights, everthing was clean and comforable and a very decnt price. BUT the noise at night is unberable, there were loud voices from the staff quarters, people talking loud in the corridors, ice machine working and to top it all, the security guard sweeping at 4:30 in the morning. You have to... More

Knowing the excellent City and Town Lodges, I was very sceptical about my stay at the Road Lodge, but what a surprise, starting with the friendly and efficient reception I received from Tiffany. All my enquiries and requests were dealt with in a 5 star customer service manner. The rooms are small but very neat and clean. On arriving for... More

Road Lodge is certainly the epitome of adequate. Nothing special about the hotel but it has a bed that's comfortable and a shower that's warm. It did the job and was very conveniently located for my trip.

Spent three nights at this establishment, and the first morning we woke up at home, we both wished we were back at the Road Lodge! Staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was delicious, and rooms clean and neat. Will definitely recommend, and will make this our stopover for all future trips to the area!

Hi there We stayed at the Road Lodge from 22 March till 24 March 2013. I was really disappointed. The first night my husband was bitten by fleas and then the next after they cleaned the room my one top was stolen. The breakfast was horrible as well, who eats powder eggs? I will not advise anyone to stay there!... More
