There aren't many accommodation options in Polokwane, especially if you need to be close to the Meropa Conference venue at the Entertainment World. The Town Lodge is is part of the complex so it is very convenient. You can expect very basic accommodation that is desperately in need of an update. The rooms and bathrooms are very small but clean... More

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at this Town Lodge during a two night business visit there. This Town Lodge is right next to the Meropa Casino at Polokwane, and within short walking distance to the casino complex. Upon our arrival at reception we were greeted by Rebecca and welcomed to the lodge in a friendly way. The check-in... More

If you are just looking for a clean bed for the night you may consider. If you are looking for more, I am sure you can do better at one of the B&B's in Polokwane. Terrible mixup when I booked in and got given an access card for an occupied room - red faces all around when I walked into... More

I stayed for one night with two friends as we travelled north on a birding trip. We missed breakfast due to an eaerly start and eat in the casino (slow service). Small room with not much space but great bathroom.

An adequate hotel for a business stay over. Staff very pleasant. Breakfast great. Room service very limited and when I asked if I could have a Heineken with my meal, I was told they don't have beer but they can give me a cream soda! Unlike other Town Lodges where a restaurant is next door, this one entails quite a... More

I am in Polokwane frequantly and have stayed here at least 10 times already, the same experience everytime. Clean Rooms and beautiful setting. It is a small distance from the city centre, so driving into town to get soem take-aways is a bit of a hassle, but otherwise it is what you would expect from a City/Town Lodge.

The place is real slum, that I reckon is only used by very late travelers and probably ladies of the night. No toilet paper in the gents room, shower is filthy and without soap. The location is also not very good, as you have quite a high frequency of unwanted visitors in and around the lodge.
