It's not often that you get to stay at a budget friendly hotel and feel like you've had a four star experience when you leave in the morning. The City Lodge Pinelands has the most helpful and friendly staff , clean and crisp bathrooms , rooms and linen. I had a great view encompassing the golf course on my stay... More

Need a break away from the hustle and bustle - hotel is perfectly situated - midway to anywhere in Cape Town. Really quiet and peaceful environment. Staff is super friendly. Great spot if you need a place to sleep and prepared to go for dinner elsewhere.

Great hotel at a good price. Everything always runs smoothly from the reservation to check in to the room and the breakfasts. Definitely recommend it for a convenient stop over or business trip in Cape Town. Not one staff member was unpleasant or unhelpful.

The staff at the Lodge always surprise me with their sincere enquiries of one's well being....My previous stay at the Lodge was almost 20 months apart, yet I was asked by the restaurant staff "how the dogs are doing?", remembering my love for my animal kids was such a surprise and I valued the enquiry.....This is of course one jewel...

I was on a course at the nearby Golf Club. Arrived Sunday and as I had no car asked if they had a restaurant to which the receptionist replied yes. Came down later to hear my food order being popped into the microwave - when I asked I was advised that "ready meals" are delivered and microwaved - not a... More

Thank you for staying with us and for your comments. Our coffee shop does offer a variety of menu items that many of our guests find extremely convenient. However, it is not a restaurant and should not have been described as such to you. We’re sorry that our offering did not meet your needs, but understand your requirement for a... More

We stayed here for 4 nights recently and chose it because of its close proximity to both the airport and the start of a The Two Oceans Marathon. Staff were very friendly and efficient, food was great, plenty of secure parking and very comfortable well appointed room. All in all excellent value for money and some nice personal touches.

As far as a hotel room goes, I can't give you the value-for-money rating because I'm here on business and have no idea how much the room costs, however, I can give you my impression of the place based on my experience thus far. The double twin that I'm staying is is fine; comfortable beds, decent sized TV, air con,... More
