I, a VP, was informed by my Company that they required my presence in CT from 13-16 Apr '14. Being an Aviation Company, situated at CT International Airport, the Lodge was conveniently situated and "cost effective". The Capt of one of our aircraft stays there on a regular basis. I was, however, sceptical having read some of the unflattering reviews... More

We stayed 1 night as our flight came in late and we didn't want to drive to our next destination in the dark. In my opinion it was an average hotel, perfectly adequate for 1 night as we only wanted a bed to sleep in after a long flight. Room was basic but clean and adequate and breakfast was nice.

We had to stay overnight so that we might pick up a house guest at the airport. Reception was not that efficient and not that informative. Room was tiny and poorly furnished. No bath just shower stall. Bed was one of the most uncomfortable I ever had to sleep in. Room was on 3rd floor no elevator? Breakfast was included... More

I have stayed at this hotel many times and have never been disappointed. The rooms have been revamped recently and are very clean and neat. For the cost, the value one receives is outstanding. Breakfasts are also more than acceptable.

Although our room was small and the amenities rudimentary, we found these adequate at the price. The proximity to the airport was the primary reason for this choice of hotel; I can't see any other reason to stay here.

We're really sorry to hear about this, but also note that this review was for a stay in February 2013, almost a year ago. Since then, the hotel has received a major upgrade which has been very well received by guests. Dirty linen, however, is totally unacceptable, and we apologize for this. More

Wasn't expecting much however we were really pleased with our stay here. A very friendly and efficient check in/out - and our special on line booking advice had been noted.

You can't charge R 520.00 per night per room to stay on a construction site. The entire establishment reeks of paint and chemicals. Overall impression is complete shambles and filthy. In my opinion the management of Road Lodge should be ashamed of this blatant robbery. Furthermore the staff had no idea how to deal with the issue on hand and... More

One does not have high expectations of a Road Lodge at an airport. That said, it met its requirements but failed in a most crucial aspect. I had booked in an 82 year old prior to her flight. I had received a confirmation for a disabled room. I personally went in again to confirm the booking, but when she arrived... More
