I'm not exaggerating in my ratings because my experience was absolutely great. We booked in at Road lodge Umhlanga due to the availability of the disabilty room and it was one of the best nights of sleep I've gotten. The bathroom and room were neat and clean as well as really accessibly for those with wheelchairs. I suggest anyone wanting... More

Had the worst stay in Road lodge Umhlanga last week. All hotels was full and I tried the Road Lodge for the first time. It was appalling: - During their breaks the staff was lying in the corridor and I had to LITERALLY climb over them on my way to reception. - Despite my room being non-smoking room, my bedding...

I organised a training for my distributors from all over Africa to be in Durban. I decided to lodge them all at the Road Lodge in Umhlanga based on the great reviews and also on price. Well, it was the worst decision. No friendly welcome! Not a very accommodating receptionist! No maintenance staff on duty on Sundays! Some guys had... More

Convenient home away from home. Travelled with teenage children. They were able to entertain themselves without me being there because they were walking to Gateway mall where they could meet their friends and watch movies.

As a budget hotel at the bottom end of the excellent City Lodge range of accommodation, this unit offers a competitive price structure but has the constraints of small rooms and bathrooms, no hospitality offerings, no source of tea, coffee or even bottled water in the room and minimal storage for bags and their contents. Walls are thin and, apert... More

This is a good example of a well-run, clean and modern Road Lodge, the budget end of the City Lodge group. The rooms are small but adequate, and the price is excellent. The big downside for us was the noisy guests on our floor having a long and extremely loud conversation in the passage well after midnight. That people can... More

Value for Money and neat clean rooms. Adavantage close to the Gatway shopping centre and a peaceful area to ge a good nights rest . will definately make use of the lodge in future. My stay was pleasant no complaints except for trying to get booking which is not easy since they re fully booked most of the time.

The two redeeming features of this hotel are the friendly staff and cheap rates. The hotel gets three stars for these reasons and its location at the Gateway Shopping centre. My stays have been one night for business, and for a quick stop that's conveniently located it suffices. My advice however, if you have your own transport, would be to... More
