4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

For a brief business stay, it ticks all the boxes. WiFi, food available fairly late, a great breakfast and comfortable rooms. The staff were, without exception (including the cleaners in the corridors), very welcoming and friendly. It is a bit noisy being so close to the freeway, but not excessively so. I think the company's ethos of rewarding staff for... More

This hotel is great for a business trip, as long as you don't need to work in your room between 8am and 5.30pm, as there is some construction taking place next door to the hotel that is very disruptive. But if you stay out of the room until 5.30, you will find it very restful upon your return, despite being... More

You may need your GPS to find the hotel, but once you are there, it's great. The wing I stayed in had recently been revamped and I must say it has been done tastefully and considerable thought has been given to the furniture and fittings. For example, there is good use of desk space so that you can set up... More

Customer focussed, very friendly and professional. Highly recommended for a business visit. Well located, close to the airport and within 15 minutes (early morning traffic included) from Old Mutual's headquarters

This is an excellent hotel and location for business in the southern suburbs. Also for CBD business if you have a car. The proximity to the airport for early departures equally good. Staff always friendly and ready to serve. Good breakfast for a limited service hotel. If you like golf, it is right on Mowbray Golf Course.

Stayed at the City Lodge for 1 night and couldn't fault it. The staff were amazing, from check in, bar service, breakfast service and check out. The room was comfortable and we were quite amazed that we didn't hear any traffic noise despite it's proximity to the N2. We were equally amazed to sleep until 8.30 am in the morning... More

I have stayed at City Lodge Pinelands on numerous occasions. I have always found it to be very satisfactory.

I like the City Lodge group hotels - good value for money and 'things work'. I had great experiences and stays in the City Lodge in Unhlanga, however my recent stay in the Pinelands City Lodge felt like a let down. It is situated on the highway and the direct environment feels like a prison. I must say that the... More

The location of the hotel is excellent for the business traveler that needs to attend meetings that are geographically dispersed around Cape Town. Room was in excellent condition (but shows its age). Breakfast was really 5-star, with friendly staff always available to help you. You will find a gym on the bottom floor that is basic, but I could use... More
