Well appointed hotel within a secure complex with a wide range of restaurants within walking distance from the hotel. Safe to walk to and from the restaurant at night.

Checkin procedure was slow, room was cold and it took a while to get the a/c heater to perform.
Room service/restaurant menu lacks variety and dietary options, the only saving grace is that there are eating out options within the shopping complex.
Had to turn the heater off last night as it was noisy, consequently the room was cold this morning, no instructions for the remote suggest you just keep pressing the buttons till something happens.
the shower cubical leaked water over the bathroom floor.
bedside light, the bulb had blown and needed replacing, took one from elsewhere to fix the problem. No phone in the room to call anyone. (part of covid policy?)
Will leave the bulb on display so hopefully ....
this place could be a really good hotel, it just requires its management to show some interest.
Think I'll eat breakfast out.

I have been staying regularly at City Lodge Lynwood for nearly ten years. It is always a fresh happy experience. On this occasion I returned after an absence of 5 months. My wife and I were treated like royalty, all of our City Lodge family were around, just spoiling us with their kindness. A really special experience every time, but especially this one!

The manager is extremely unhelpful. When asked for an extra pillow it was not company policy. When asked about wifi which was advertised as included the answer from reception was only 1 voucher per room she did not know the quantity and could not help with with the password so we went on our own hotspot. We payed for a 30 meter square room but at reception was told that all rooms are 20 square meters and that the difference is the balcony!

The waiting staff were friendly. Reception staff were not always present and left the area unattended at times. Reception and kitchen staff forget about orders that are placed in advanced for breakfast and lunch. The cleaning staff do not remove plates and other cutlery utensils that were used in previous days from the rooms. Fridges are not available in all rooms and when you enquire it becomes a slight challenge to request. Due to loadshedding there will be days where the bath water is cold. Not all TV channels display I have had to request the additional channels to be added, if you don't ask you do not know. The dinner menu is not exactly enticing and says stay for dinner. Staff are not fully attentive I suggest management and staff undergo a customer and job satisfaction refresher training. My order placed (written) the previous afternoon for lunch and breakfast for the next morning was not captured by reception into the system I left early hours without breakfast, luckily caught breakfast at the airports slow lounge. I will not visit City Lodge Lynnwood again and will not be making any recommendations either.

Disappointing experience at City Lodge Hotel Lynnwood. 1 Couple did not get Twin room as booked. On arrival a toilet lying in the corridor to our rooms. Doing repairs without regard for clients. Our room had an empty dirty bottle lying on the floor. So much for housekeeping. Airconditioner not working. Shower door fell off. Cannot phone reception on hotel phone in room. Neither kitchen. Had to phone from my own mobile and reception confirmed one cannot pbone them from room phone?! Order sandwich and burger for on room dining. Had to fetxh it yourself from kitchen due to staff shortage. Coudl not sleep. Spotlight at entrance shone directly into our room like it was daylight. We travel a lot. They will not see us again

I have not been to the hotel in many years. I like the location as it is close to restaurants and major shopping centers. Not to mention easy access to getting on and off the highway. Unfortunately COVID was not kind to the hotel. The room we received had water damage outside the door and the wall and carpet had mold on it. We tried to stay for a few hours, but when we found hair in the bath, my wife decided it is either a different hotel or a different room. We went downstairs and informed the desk and they didn’t flinch to change our room. I think they get this often. The second room was marginally better, but also not very clean.

I can see they are painting and replacing floors. But, it really was not a good experience for us. It actually was a major detractor from our couples weekend away to the city. Next time we will choose a different hotel.

I was travelling on Business at City Lodge Lynnwood. I experienced very poor room service. Unable to contact Reception or Room Service. No Phone in my room - only Whatsapp. No response on Whatsapp room service. It took 45 Minutes for my Iron to be delivered and when it was delivered it had burn marks and ruined my brand new white shirt.

We stayed at this hotel twice in March 2023. Whilst it was 'ok' there were several features which need attention if it is to retain any semblance of a quality hotel.
1. Checkin procedures were interminable ..... expect to wait 20 mins minimum to check in whilst staff fiddle with computers, papers, passports, photocopies, preparation of keys etc. This process needs streamlining.
2. There are NO phones in the rooms. Rather you must have a smart phone and log in via a QR code and then do whatever .... we did not have phones and had to physically go down to reception to report problems.
3. The a/c in room 1 did not work. We went down to reception but nothing was done.
4. The room safe did not work in room 2.

Attention to these issues needed as they reflect an underlying issue with management.

I loved it there.
All the staff were so friendly and I will definitely stay there again when I"m next in Pretoria.
The rooms were comfy, the food was great and so well located.
We were attending a conference at the CSIR and it was very close. In addition, there are multiple restaurants across the road from the hotel which were open fairly late which was ideal - although food at the hotel was pretty yummy too.
