City Lodge Hotel Durban
Ranked #17 of 43 Hotels in Durban
Reviewed July 18, 2013

I choose the hotel as it is a 5 min to the ICC and only 5 min walk from the beach. The staff where friendly, the room clean and big.
The food offered at the caffee was a nice small selection and good.
The only issue was that the wifi in my room was poor and never really stable.
Over all, would stay here again, should I be here again.
The breakfast selection was good and the normal things.

Stayed two nights at this hotel. The service was great, clean room with comfortable bed.

Conveniently situated next to uShaka marine, few minutes drive to Pavillion mall and close proximity to Greyville racecourse.

Every year my colleagues and I attend a trade fair in Durban, and for the past nine years we have enjoyed the hospitality of City Lodge Durban. Apart from the obvious reasons like location, size of the property (I prefer smaller hotels to large ones) - what I believe needs to be mentioned and emphasised in a review like this, is the people of this great establishment.

There are staff who have been there, working at City Lodge Durban, for longer than I have been staying with them. Some of these staff know and remember my name, ask about my family and children - and in doing so, understand what true and traditional hospitality is all about.

As with every City Lodge (as this is their standard), the rooms are comfortable and adequate. You know what you are going to get and that is why you stay there. Rooms are clean, well serviced and all the necessary is in place to ensure that you are comfortable........BUT... the key with this particular City Lodge lies within their team of dedicated, friendly, professional and long serving staff.

It was good to see the City Lodge bosses paying them a visit this past week - I am sure that they also see the value in the good folk who work for them.

Many thanks to everyone at City Lodge Durban - I look forward to seeing you there next year again.

Room Tip: If one really has to be critical - avoid the inside rooms looking out on to the patio. Breakfast is...

The environment is good and very relaxing hoever the food/dinner service is very poor as one type of meal is served every day and thats unhealthy however the choice of ordering from the outside restaurent is almost disastrous as the delivery men arrive with cold food and wrong orders and thats terrible especially when you are hungry and you have been dissapointed from the hotel food area.Breakfast service needs attention as sometimes quees to be dished are too long and very slow.Reception at the Hotel is fast and very proffessionally.Rooms are big and very relaxing.Location is preety cool as it is not away from the sea.

Room Tip: Rooms at the ground floor are big

I had just had a horrible night at another hotel so I switched to this hotel. This hotel made up for that. They booked me into a clean room and the food was great. I loved the surroundings. It is within walking distance to the ICC.

I'm definitely taking my family there. I love hotels that are not in skyscrapers.

My only gripe is with the rooms that are just a bit too small.

I was here a few months ago, but now it seems like service is a bit worse. You cant charge room service to your room, and Mr Delivery doesnt even have wireless card machines. Need to get with the times.
