Unfortunately there is some serious construction work going on by the hotel which is very noisy and extremely dusty. The room was okay and the location was in between the waterfront and downtown. I ate there twice, once for dinner and lunch on the day I was leaving - I left both meals as they were not pleasant. With that...

Popular, quiet lodge with spacious well-appointed accommodation and designed for business with good wi-fi. Offers delightful breakfast and is enroute to the spectacular V&A waterfront which is 10-15 minutes walk. Staff are great and helpful.

Apart from the location, the hotel is average. There are three four other hotels in the vicinity if location is important. The biggest minus for me was the lack of bottled water in the room. Even if the locals swear by the quality of tap water, I am not the one to take chances. Reaching the hotel late at night...

My husband and I recently stayed here for 2 nights. When we initially booked, we didn't realise it was the weekend of the Argus Cycle race. On arriving the hotel was bustling with activity with all the cyclists booking in. We initially thought it was going to be an awful stay, and service would lack due to the hotel being...

City Lodge provides a good location at a budget price, as it is just an easy 10 minute walk to V&A Waterfront. The staff were helpful and there was adequate car parking. The rooms were comfortable, but a bit jaded. We didn’t use the restaurant. We were pre warned that there would be major construction works under way right next...

My wife and I stayed here 5 nights as I was to participate in the Cape Argus. The hotel is perfectly situated in the town within walking distance of the stadium, V&A Waterfront and Town itself. The extra effort put in for the cyclists was unexpected from the pre race carb meals to the early breakfast. The staff are always...

A good 3 star hotel, that's within walking distance to the V&A Waterfront. They provide free muffins, tea and coffee and well as lemonade daily which is great. The pillows in the room take some getting used to, and the TV is small and really far from the bed, so it looks like you're watching on your laptop. The bar...

This hotel is in a convenient location, a short walk from the waterfront. The staff are friendly and the breakfast is five star. There is no room service but there are so many restaurants close by that we didn't miss it. It's an ideal place to stay at while working from the conference centers near the waterfront. It does have...

Hotel is conveniently located just before the entrance to the waterfront. Rooms and bathrooms are clean.The breakfast is good with a good variety. There is a splash pool. The decor and rooms are presentable. Please note there is no early check in. Check in is 2pm. Really good value for money.
