“Great hotel for stadium access”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

This hotel is clean and the rooms well set out. Small but adequate. We stayed overnight to attend a concert at Soccer City. The hotel is an easy driving distance from the stadium. Lots of takeaway restaurants in the area and a 24 hour shop within walking distance. I wouldn't recommend it for a holiday as the area is only alright, for business it is a bit far from the main centres. It did however suit our needs perfectly. If you want this hotel at a great rate check out the City Lodge groups auction website http://www.bid2stay.co.za/.

Returned to this hotel after a long time. Good to see the rooms have been well looked after. Lake view from the room was awesome. Staff friendly. No room service. Plenty of food delivery options available. there is a checkers supermarket within walking distance as well. Rooms are nicely decorated and comfortable for a 2 star property. I would stay here again. There is a "little" pool as well.

Room Tip: lake facing room quieter

in a good location if your trip is work related...other than its in the middle of nowhere next to a freeway...good breakfast but only takaway menus for dinner. Roots are basic and looking worn...
Worst thing...3 floor hotel with no elevator...nice after a long flight and luggage.

I was part of a very large group of staff booked in @ Town lodge Roodepoort, my bed was so comfortable being away for business that one thing I want is a good bed and comfortable room. Breakfast was lovely and the friendly staff made our stay even better. For business or a stop over I would really recommend it.

Room Tip: Lower level as other wise it is a very long walk to your room

We stayed in Town Lodge Roodepoort on the 18th & 19th october. There were 11 of us ranging in age from 18 months to 86. The rooms are very small, but comfortable, nice decor, good beds. There are no baths only showers, but they are very good and have room to move inside. Watch that the AC works in the room you are given, we had a couple of issues there. Townlodge only serves breakfasts (very good) but they have a bar open in the evening. The staff couldnt do enough for us, nothing was too much trouble. Would not be my first choice of hotel, as i prefer the normal facilitites and a little more room, BUT the price was exceptionally reasonable, the people are lovely and I sleep like a top. I saw the comparison to travelodge.... pretty unfair, its a bit more upmarket. HIE with good breakfasts is fairer.

What is the most important thing you look for in a hotel? A good night’s rest.

When I walked into the Roodepoort Town Lodge, I was immediately impressed. It feels more luxurious than the one in Sandton. The rooms feel roomier and the bathrooms are definitely bigger. If you are on the right side of the building, there is a view over a big stretch of water, a dam of some sort. This is something one does not see very often in Johannesburg. There is a bar with an outside area on a wooden deck overlooking the water. Very nice.

The first night was not good. The air duct in my bathroom was not working. Instead of sucking in air, it blew out air. Air from the rooms of chain smokers. I awoke sometime at 1am and was completely overwhelmed by smoke. As if there was a smokers party inside my room. It never went away and I barely slept 2h. I contacted the duty manager the next morning.

The way they handled my situation was prompt, efficient and professional. It did not help me get my sleep back, but it was very impressive and I have to commend them for it. I got another room with a working air duct and crisp clean air.

Breakfasts are very tasty. I can recommend this venue. Remember to stay on the water’s side. Much nicer.

A final thought, hopefully one day we can live in a society where smokers are not allowed to stink up the interior of a building.

Room Tip: Stay on the water's side. The view is better and there is less road noise.

A very pleasant looking hotel but it's situation is not great with nothing much around it. Taxi to a local restaurant was a bit of a rip off, The hotel rooms were very pleasnt - very clean and breakfast was pretty good. The bar area is small but ok. The oddest thing about the place is a lack of a lift. It is a modern hotel built over four floors and the lack of a lift is very strange - and it is needed,!
