Great location and value for money...unfortunately no tea/coffee service in the room. The vending machine was not stocked with any cool drinks all weekend i was there...room was comfy but the TV could be mounted on the wall in front of the bed. Service of staff was good. Overall had a comfortable time.

We arrived rather late and without a reservation. Safe parking are on-site. The check-in was quick and friendly; we paid up-front. Our en-suite room was spotless, reasonably equipped and comfortable. The décor was standard and expected from a hotel franchise. The linen, towels and mattresses were all of good quality. A TV, bible, hangers and extra blankets and pillows were...

Me and my friend overnight at above accommodation due to the fact that the lodge is central. I was however utterly dissapointed when we arrived that our room's window was broken. It could not close leaving us feel unsafe. Another thing which was also not nice was the fact that we could hear everything of the people next door. Shouldn't...

I have recently been a big fan of all road lodge/city & town lodge hotels fan reason being that they offer a great deal of service as compared to the price that one pays! The service is impecable,the rooms clean and the breakfast is really good! Will definitely recommend this place for an overnight stay!!

Not the best location. Trucks on highway and trains may effect your sleep. I have been in much better facilities. My first impression was not that good. The staff on duty on arrival did not impressed. I will never let the Company book me in here again.

Whilst this is a 'budget' hotel coming at just under $50 a night, the accommodations are satisfactory. I waited a good 5-7minutes whilst the check-in staff seemed too busy on her computer before assisting me. The lobby/reception area had a strong industrial chemical smell reminiscent of a hospital or perhaps even a prison. I was on a non-smoking floor which...

Road Lodge is a very nice place, conveniently near the airport you could even walk if you travel light. Very friendly staff and welcoming staff. I had a 2-day stay and enjoyed my time - The downside is that you may not get lunch and dinner in the hotel. So you will have to walk out. The breakfast is great...

We stayed for four nights. Friendly staff. Neat, clean rooms and bedding. Comfortable bed. Shower worked well. Tiny toilet and basin. Free muffins every morning. Secure parking. Safe area. All round, a very pleasant stay.

I was booked into the lodge for business. O my gosh!! The smell of smoke was everywhere!! I was checked into a non-smoking room floor 1, and the smoke smell suffocated me. The friendly staff moved me to the 2nd floor - it was a bit better. But...with open windows after a while, I started with sore ears, throat and...

Thank you for staying with us. Sorry to hear about your initial room, but we’re glad to hear that our staff did move you and attempt to improve the situation. Alas, smoke is a pervasive smell that is sometimes difficult to fully overcome or control. We will certainly take your comments into consideration.

The room is so small the toilet and shower is practically within the room nothing separates it. The basin and toilet are really small which has a slide door , this place is rated 1 star so expect 1 star things. Getting there late at night also looked dangerous . It is not far from the airport.
