We booked into Road Lodge for 4 nights prior to Christmas. The hotel is clean and well run. It is value for money for anybody looking for an affordable holiday during Christmas in Durban. The beach is a stone's throw away. The nearby shopping centre provides a number of affordable restaurants and entertainment . The downside is that it does... More

Well priced and great location in the centre of Gateway. Close to airport and easy access to transport. Staff and service is great and always consistent. TV screens need an upgrade to flatscreens 😀 Breakfast offering okay and standard for an establishment of this nature.

On this trip we were 3 people. Had a room with a double bed and sleaper "chair". You must understand for the price that the rooms are not going to be 5 star. We were out the whole day and only returned during the evenings. For that purpose its ok. If you plan to use it as vacation suite, its... More

Booked two rooms this past weekend, at Road Lodge , arrived late, Service was fine. They even changed the one room as it was not to our standards. Perfectly located , easy access to Gateway , and what i liked was that it was convenient to all the amenities.

The room and bathroom are small, but then this can be expected given the price range. The decor is standard, room is clean, and serves the purpose of a comfortable night's sleep and a warm shower. The location is excellent, right on the door step of Gateway Shopping Mall, which offers a multitude of dining options (breakfast and dinner). Please... More

Its a road lodge, you get the basics and thats alright for a short stay. But our aircon wasn't working, and they say they have MNET premier, but there is action plus instead. Its very convenient though. We stayed there after a super long day and drive from the wild coast. So it was perfect for just walking across to... More
