“Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

I stayed here for one night on a recent business trip in SA. I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel. The lobby area is nice and open, very modern and very easy on the eye. Rooms are comfortable and well furnished and equipped.Breakfast buffet very good as well. Easy access to some nice places to eat so no complaints at all

Upon arrival for the first time in South Africa, getting off the plane I didn't know what to expect. The drive from Johannesburg airport is about 20-30 minutes, I highly recommend you get picked up and driven to the hotel, rather than a taxi.

The hotel staff are very nice and friendly upon arrival and helped with bags. Once booked in I was taken up to my room. The room whilst great isn't anything to write home about. Lacking a mini fridge. The Balcony over looked the back of the hotel, looking down you can see the swimming pool and outside area, across the road is the Aurecon Centre.

The shops and restaurants are amazing and only a few minutes walk across the car park.

The lasagna down stairs in the coffee shops is amazing, very very nice indeed, the coffee is great.

In the morning i insist you have the English Breakfast, you have so many options from bacon and eggs, to fruit and salad to cereal.

The only problem I had was the bath tub was a bit dirty with strands of hairs. The shower, toilet and sink were all clean so not a huge drama.

I had a smoking room, whilst I don't always smoke, its nice to have the option and the rooms don't smell or look different at all.

Room Tip: Room towards the back overlooking the pool are nice to have

Well situated in trendy Lynwood area in Pretoria. Parking is available on sight. Access to a shopping area and many restaurants is a quick walk across the car park. The rooms are comfortable, well furnished, clean and open onto a small balcony. The breakfast was very reasonably priced, with a good variety of items, whether you selected continental or hot. The hotel staff were friendly and went out of their way to please. Evening meals can be ordered from restaurants close bye. The meal ordered from Rhapsody’s was delicious and promptly delivered!!!

Room Tip: Request a room overlooking the shopping and restaurant area across the hotel

I have been staying at this hotel regularly for the past 2 years, and in line with their in house award system I rate it as by far the best City Lodge in South Africa.

At this stage I am delighted to report that the service is always excellent. The management and staff take a lot of extra effort to make all the guests feel welcome. All staff are friendly and greet guests at every opportunity. Check ins and outs are friendly and very efficient

The hotel's corporate "I am kind" campaign has resulted in numerous gestures aimed at making guests feel at home. As an example, they have purchased a pillow to match wy wife's preference, and it is always there when needed.

The coffee shop menu is quite limited, but the wonderful staff more than make up for this. You are also welcome to order in from one of the neighbouring restaurants and take your meal in the coffee shop or in your room.

Brreakfasts are generous and good value for money. Management presence on the floor during breakfast ensures a warm welcome and efficient service.

The rooms are all well equipped, freshly serviced and maintained. Wifi access is excellent, and the hotspot enables connection to MWeb.

Whilst I am wary of hype and slogans, City Lodge Lynnwood has really become a home away from home.

Have stayed at City Lodge 5 times since April whilst on business. The team have been fantastic and looked us well. Many thanks to Danelle, Chantal and Alice for your hospitality. Hopefully I will get to visit again soon.

Located in popular Lynnwood Bridge area, it's a perfect location with a wide choice of restaurants - Koi, Stefanies, TriBeCa and more!

Well located, near great restaurants (and by that I mean across the road) with easy access from motorway. Quiet, good sized rooms that are modern and well appointed. Opening window (a nice change) allows you to choose fresh air or the air conditioner. Secure parking on site. Good value, however staff could be more pleasant.

Room Tip: Some rooms have a larger bathroom with a bath and a shower.
