The hotel was a bit isolated from major shopping malls but it offers value for money services to business travellers. The rooms are clean and hotel staff was good.Sadly we had to que up for breakfast.

We loved this Hotel and the wonderful staff. From the general manager, everyone was so helpful and caring. Our room was nice and the bed was ok. The breakfast is buffet style and really good. Located very close to a golf court and 15 minutes by car from the Waterfront. Everything was really clean and perfect. Would love to go... More

Very friendly and helpful staff, excellent food, and generally good place for a business traveler. Not too expensive. Gym could be a little better, has only 2 bikes and 2 treadmills. Wi-fi reliable, and rooms spacious and comfortable.

Sadly I thought that this was an airport hotel... Not really sure where this falls.. As it is 15 mins-+ from airport and-+20 mins from the waterfront.. We had to pay for transfers both ways!! Normally airport shuttles are done with a courtesy buses.. There was no one to help with luggage.. D.I.Y.. I am afraid!!!! Ordered a taxi for4.30a.m.... More

Thank you very much for leaving us your review. We do have an airport hotel right next to the Cape Town International Airport – it is a Road Lodge. We also have airport hotels Johannesburg, PE and Bloemfontein. Our hotels do not have porters, so we’re sorry about the luggage. While we can arrange transfers, these do come at an... More

Perhaps you might encounter a little bit of traffic at peak hours if you are trying to get into town but the proximity to the airport is ideal for red eye flights. The staff are extremely engaging and friendly. The rooms like all City Lodges are clean. For the 3 or 4 star that it is I think it is... More

The hotel looks great from the inside and outside. Large bed and spacious room. No minibar or safe, alas. My room was spotless. Only issue is that I had asked (and got) a non-smokers room, but rooms further down the hall did have smokers and you could just smell the smoke going into my room, yuck. What was disappointing was... More

This hotel provides everything you need with great service all round. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. There is a desk in the room making it easy to set up to work. The coffee shop serves wholesome fresh food for dinner and the breakfast selection is excellent.

I try to avoid this hotel chain as Cape Town has so many other options, but it's convenient location won me over. I booked last minute and although I had a very late check in, I was expected and welcomed with a friendly smile. I asked for a quiet non smoking room and the hotel delivered. First though, the hotel... More

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
