I recently stayed at Africa Centre Lodge in Benoni. I got a prompt free pick up from the airport. On my arrival I had noticed that they have moved premises and the management is new. I must say that the service is really stepped up from my last visit. I felt at home the moment I walked into the lodge....

I don’t know where to start even! This is the worst thing ever happened to me, and I have travelled a bit… I am also a 20+ years hospitality veteran, so what I experienced at Africa Centre is a shame for the complete industry. The worst is that I found out that this has been going on for a long...

Friends of ours who come every year suggested we come here for our overnight before flying out. The hotel grounds were nice and the room adequate. The food was ok nothing special. There was a bit of confusion with our day trip to Soweto and the driver was not too interested. The BBQ place he took us for lunch though...

This place is a VENUS Flytrap. Looks good on the outside and totally disgusting and dirty on the inside. Complimentary Tea/Coffee tray was dirty from previous guest. Room and bedding was unchanged (looked discoloured). Towels were torn and frayed on edges - and very discoloured. One almost feel sick with disgust on entering the room. There is no hot water...

Been there once and wouldn't dare to do it again, Bugs in the Room, poor customer service, pictures are misleading. To be avoided also taking price in account, Maybe only decent part of stay was the breakfast (served anyway in a very crowded room)

Having stayed here in 2009 and been impressed with the service and budget, we opted to return for a further night in April 2012 as part of a transit through Africa. Since our last visit the hotel has gone down in standards and customer service. It looks tired and in need of a major overhall. We booked the couresty collection...

Do not stop here. We booked for one night as a stop over in Johannesburg before flying out again, so wanted something at a reasonable price. The free shuttle was appealing, and to be fair the driver was ready and waiting when we landed. When we got to the hotel, we had to wait for about 30 minutes before we...
