I have never stayed at the Town lodge before, and was quite surprised about the service and the quality received. When I arrived, it was clear that the hotel was experiencing a hectic evening with lots of guests booking in late. But regardless of the hour of arrival, each guest was made to feel very welcome. The receptionist really gave... More

We popped in after a long flight and got a clean room, fair price and friendly service. The shuttle to/from the airport needs to be better marked and coordinated or you will miss it. Very good Local Grill Graze restaurant next door. Great place to start or end your holidays.

The welcoming and hospitable staff make up for the lack of some facilities e.g. Lift, An In house restaurant. A charge is payable for use of the Shuttle Bus to/from Airport. Not recommended for a long term stay!

Just a one night stay over while waiting for our connecting flight. The place is clean and tidy and the front staff are friendly and extremely helpful. Rooms consist of the basics, a TV with normal SABC channels, M-net, M-net Movies, M-net Edge, CNN and several SuperSport Channels. 1 hr complimentary wifi with the option to purchase more access per...

This clean, pleasantly decorated eatablishment was a godsend for my husband who was becoming exhausted during a nine hour stopover. Accommodation is available on an hourly basis so we went for 5 hours. Check in took less than five minutes. He showered and went to bed. I had a hot bath using the scented bath products provided and went to... More

We have used this lodge many times over the years and never fail to be impressed with the value and good service. When used in off peak times it is incredibly good value. The rooms are clean, well appointed and comfortable. The staff are very helpful and Johannes, the bar man, is good company during your sundown drink. Shops and... More

Average hotel, rooms a bit tired but ok for an overnight stay before our safari. The steak house next door is superb, a must if you stay here. The location is the main drawing point for this hotel, due to its closeness to the airport.

As an overnighter between flights this is absolutely fine. I wouldn't consider this as an option for longer stays if you travel with much luggage or don’t have your own car. The rooms and bathrooms are minuscule but clean enough. The beds are comfortable, shower decent, amenities basic but adequate and black-out curtains effective. Rooms facing the garden are quiet...
