I stay here often, I enjoy the location, price, comfortable beds, good showers and decent breakfast. I always pay upfront and this trip paid over R4000 upfront. When I needed an iron to iron 1 shirt I was advised that I need to put down a deposit! First time in a hotel ever! I didn't have cash so was told... More

Thank you for being a loyal customer – a customer we would definitely like to retain. Unfortunately, we do have to ask for an iron deposit as our irons have gone missing before. As we pride ourselves on our friendly service, we are disappointed in your opinion that service has deteriorated – we will certainly look into this. We’re glad... More

Below standard, rooms not fresh at all - when moving into a room it smells like the carpet is wet. They do not replace shower gel after the first night. Breakfast not the greatest at all, not much variety - the scrambled eggs were very wet and croissants very dry. Parking very, very limited - had to park across the... More

We booked into Road Lodge for 4 nights prior to Christmas. The hotel is clean and well run. It is value for money for anybody looking for an affordable holiday during Christmas in Durban.

Well priced and great location in the centre of Gateway. Close to airport and easy access to transport. Staff and service is great and always consistent. TV screens need an upgrade to flatscreens 😀 Breakfast offering okay and standard for an establishment of this nature.
