I didn't expect much from the hotel but was pleasantly surprised when we got there. We were just staying for the weekend visiting friends in the Sandton and Fourways area so the location was ideal. The hotel was close to William Nicol and had easy access to the highway. The hotel was quiet and offered all the usual facilities. A... More

Check in went smooth with a welcome drink to all guests. The rooms are clean and comfortable. All amenities like tea/coffee and bathroom shower gel/ cream etc. The rooms also have a safe, TV and aircon that are very quiet. Would recommend for business visitors.

Not a bad hotel to stay for business. The staff are pretty helpful and nice. Kind of enjoyed my stay. The rooms are decent not extravagant but having the basic major needs. The major challenge is Internet provision which is given for only an hour and I don't think that's enough for business people.

I stayed at the City Lodge Bryanston for business for a few nights and overall thought it was okay. I would stay there again if I have to be in the area, but not without shopping for some snacks. For a basic business hotel it was fine, but the lack of real food is problematic unless you want to use... More

Stayed there recently for one night when my wife was giving birth at the Sandton mediclinic across the road. The reception service was pretty good and friendly. The rooms are very dated and are in serious need of a revamp. The bathrooms seem extremely old. Plenty black mildew on the shower tiles.
