I only stayed a short while on business, so not an in-depth review - but certainly a place I enjoyed staying at, and would gladly stay again! Location: - It is in Goodwood, right on the Grand West Casino complex, so very conveniently located if you have business outside of downtown "Cape Town" and somewhat closer to the airport, etc....

Excellent staff service all round. Warm Service with a smile from all I dealt with. Great all round breakfast spread (the pastries are simply divine) My special dietary requirements were provided for.

The reason for our stay was the George Benson concert on June 12 2016 staged at The Grand West Arena. The fact that the City Lodge Hotel was on the premises of the concert venue, which incorporates a casino, various restaurants and take-away facilities was a huge bonus. When booking our hotel stay via telephone, we did not realize that... More

I stayed here for a week. The check in experience was quick. Rooms tidy and just what you need. The breakfast is adequate and two options are on offer: full English breakfast or continental. Dinner also available and the local restaurant offers well prepared meals. Parking is free and the casino is walking distance. I will return to stay here... More

I've stayed here on a business trip to Cape Town. The hotel is close to the industrial area of Epping, so conveniently situated for my travel needs. The hotel is tastefully furnished and rooms were comfortable and clean. I've enjoyed breakfast at the hotel, and the options of dinner in the casino next door.

I was expecting a typical 3star. Stayed here for business. Unlike many more expensive hotels, the room was sound proof, the staff very friendly and professional, and the breakfast excellent. Its not a holiday destination but im looking forward to staying there on my next business trip.

We stayed here because it was at the same venue that Iron Maiden were playing. Nothing too spectacular but overall a great place. It's rated 3 stars and lives up to that value. Walking distance to the concert venue was a real big plus!
