We stayed here after a long flight to SA. The hotel was easy to find, close to the airport and just what we needed. The room was small but comfortable and clean and the staff were very friendly. We would definitely recommend this hotel if you don't want to travel after a long flight, or need a place to stay...

We arrived around 8pm and thought it best to stay overnight near the airport before going to Camps Bay. Great move. Best value for a budget hotel. Rooms are basic but clean. Towels fluffy, beds firm but fine for a short stay. Free wifi which worked well. Reception was helpful and knowledgeable. But the breakfast..... for 75 rand it has...

I used this hotel as an overnight stop whilst en route from Port Elizabeth to London via Cape Town. The hotel is located on the airport site, less than 5 minutes in the transfer shuttle door-to-door. I pre-booked a shuttle pick-up, however as my flight had been cancelled and then re-scheduled, there was nobody from the shuttle company to greet...

This hotel is ideal for those needing to take an early morning flight, or for those arriving late evening. The rooms are functional, clean, comfortable and provides a good night's rest. The lobby has a vending machine with some snacks and drinks, and a coffee machine. Anything more has to be ordered in advance for delivery to the hotel, or...

Excellent single night stopover close to the airport. Efficient and friendly. Very easy to walk to during the day and a cheap shuttle bus from the airport at night. The gate to walk from the airport is closed from 22:00 to 05:00. Breakfast was good and we quickly were able to get a shuttle minibus into the city.

Have stopped here on several occasions and my latest lived up to expectations. What I expected was a clean, cheap, friendly, no frills, easily accessible room for the night. After arriving on a late flight and picking up my hire car for a drive up country the following day this is the perfect place to rest up. Easy to find...

the room is fine and serves its purpose in terms of amenities, but the hotel doesn't really offer much. A vending machine with one or two items can be found in reception and room service is available. I didn't sleep a wink due to noise inside the hotel and I'm half deaf. People talking in the lobby until all hours...

This a is a sister hotel to the City Lodge chain, but does not live up to the same standards. The room was tiny, smelly, had no elevator, so I had to lug my luggage up to the 2nd floor AND the staff offered no help whatsoever! This is not a place for anyone with mobility challenges. You have to...
