The rooms are very basic. The walls are so thin I could hear my friends baby crying next door and the girls talking in the other room. No kettle or tea facilities. It was the weekend of the cold front and the heater wouldn't work. I asked someone to come up and have a look, they agreed and no one... More

Comfortable and clean hotel. Very basic and a bit noisy. Gardens well maintained. For the price I paid I could not expect more. I could not find a vending machine easily for tea and coffee. I only found an ice machine. Staff very friendly and efficient.

Fine hotel to stay over when I am for business in the Germiston and Wadeville area. Good value for money, clean rooms and friendly staff. And close to the old Rand Airport where you ll find a good meal at Harvard Cafe.

The lodge was okay, more for business people. The staff was friendly but it was a bit noisy the evening as more guests arrived.The breakfast was edible,not something extraodinary. Would go there if it was a business trip to sleep for 1 night.
