What is the most important thing you look for in a hotel? A good night’s rest.
When I walked into the Roodepoort Town Lodge, I was immediately impressed. It feels more luxurious than the one in Sandton. The rooms feel roomier and the bathrooms are definitely bigger. If you are on the right side of the building, there is a view over a big stretch of water, a dam of some sort. This is something one does not see very often in Johannesburg. There is a bar with an outside area on a wooden deck overlooking the water. Very nice.
The first night was not good. The air duct in my bathroom was not working. Instead of sucking in air, it blew out air. Air from the rooms of chain smokers. I awoke sometime at 1am and was completely overwhelmed by smoke. As if there was a smokers party inside my room. It never went away and I barely slept 2h. I contacted the duty manager the next morning.
The way they handled my situation was prompt, efficient and professional. It did not help me get my sleep back, but it was very impressive and I have to commend them for it. I got another room with a working air duct and crisp clean air.
Breakfasts are very tasty. I can recommend this venue. Remember to stay on the water’s side. Much nicer.
A final thought, hopefully one day we can live in a society where smokers are not allowed to stink up the interior of a building.
