Thank you for staying with us Xolani. As the Road Lodge brand is our one star brand, it is quite basic as far as amenities go, although it does have all the services and features usually offered by this star category. For more services and features, you could try our two star Town Lodge, or three star City Lodge Hotels.... More

Ever thought of that away from home place you can just get in and out with no fuss? Go Road Lodge; it is so simple you even know where they keep the sugar. Be sure to insist on none smoking room if you don't smoke. The rest is packed up economy resting place before the next business deal and you... More

The hotel is nice and clean, good for average travelers, reasonable prices, good English breakfast, good location next to bus terminus and central railway station, plenty taxi service for down town or beach ride.

The lodge is central located,value for money, very neat, free parking and excellent service from the employees. My best part of the stay was the free unlimited wifi. Area of improvement is with the T.V(very small),there is no mini bar fridge and coffee/tea in hotel room

When I first walked into the room I thought made a mistake, it's small and isn't wow but honestly once I saw it's a 1 star I must say it's much better than any 1 star I've seen. The bed is ok, the pillows aren't great, seem nearly useless. TV is a old CRT type and tiny. All said, service... More

Double room are just for couples or an adult and a child. The rooms are so tiny and uncomfortable for two adults. Some people of the staff are nice, other are so rude. Breakfast has good options. The location is a bit far of the touristic attractions, but taxis are not expensive. WiFi works well.
