Check-in always a breeze. Staff always friendly and accommodating. Rooms comfortable and always immaculately clean. No complaints at all. Am of the opinion that breakfast is totally over priced as well as the liquor in the evenings.

This is a simple no frills hotel that offers a warm and friendly welcome. The rooms are comfortable, clean with comfortable beds. Rooms have air-con and opening windows. The bathroom with bathtub and separate shower cubicle is great however a little dimly lit. Amenities are adequate for one person especially the bath gel - take extra if you are 2.... More

We decided to stay-over the night of the Carlos Santana performance (and what a show!), so we could arrive early and rest a bit, early dinner and a relaxing drink after the show. Throughout our one night stay, the staff were most attentive and helpful, the room / bed / facilities were excellent and quiet. The breakfast was certainly worth... More

I have been going to this establishment for the last ten years and there has never been a time that it was not an absolute pleasure to be there.

We stayed here for one night before an early morning flight. We were initially given a smoking room but we requested to change to a non-smoking one and that wasn't too much of a mission for the staff. The room was a good size, clean and well equipped. Obviously it was very close to the casino, so we didn't have... More

The hotel is located at the Grand West Casino. Plenty of free parking (they validate). They may only be a 3 star hotel but I feel they try hard to offer a 4 star service. The rooms are small but large and comfortable enough to have a good stay. The bathroom is well appointed and includes a bath and walk-in... More

One of my favorite places to stay. Even though it's close to a busy casino, it's very quiet and you can get a good night's rest. Rooms are very nice, provision are made for smokers. Just the breakfast is a bit expensive.

Hotel staff are helpful and friendly. Breakfast is great! Hotel located next to casino so lots of restaurant choices and take always. Rooms clean but a little small. Price a little expensive as a winter rate for a 3 star hotel though. Only 15mins of free wifi available.

I stayed here for business 8 to 10 May 2013. I was put in the older part of the hotel which smells musty and old. The hotel is tired and in great need of a refurb. For R950 excluding breakfast a night I expected a lot more as for half the price I could have stayed in the CBD. Only... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Please note we are extending the cook out area from 25 Sep to handover 22 Oct. During this time the coffee shop will be closed and breakfast will be at R90 for full or continental. The reason for this is that we will only have scramble egg available. The guest will still have 8 restaurants to choose from and seven deliver to the room as normal. The Boardroom will not be available for this period as well. The bar will be operational as normal. City Lodge GrandWest is themed on the original Cape Dutch style of architecture and is 20 minutes from Cape Town’s international airport, the city centre and the V and Waterfront. The hotel is part of the GrandWest Casino Resort, boasting a cinema complex, ice-rink, restaurants, bars, gaming tables and slot machines. ... more   less
