My travel agent wanted to put us in a fancy hotel about 30 minutes from the airport -- mind you, we arrived at 5 pm and had a flight out at 10 am. I asked for City Lodge as it just made sense to us. What a delight! To be able to walk to the hotel and get checked in in short order, freshening up and relaxing with no stress -- priceless. I didn't know what we would do for dinner but fortunately we tried the restaurant at the hotel. Guess what? It was very very good; they make some great salads and open-faced sandwiches and my husband loved his lamb dish. There is a good South African pinotage to drink...just could not have been a better experience. On our return through Jo'burg, we had a five-hour layover. Guess what again? We passed a couple of hours at the restaurant at City lodge, peaceful, good wine, and again, delicious salads to tide us over. The employees are nice too.
