The hotel was used as a starting point for our safari and as we were getting into Johannesburg a day early, it seemed appropriate to book an additional night and save relocating. Unfortunately we found the rooms to be very small with tiny en-suite facilities where the shower is not private. The reception staff were not very friendly but the... More

This is the hub for Sunway Safaris as most tours start from here. We stayed here one night before our tour and although this is rated as one star hotel it is a lot better than that, rooms are clean with good facilities not big but plenty of room for one night. A minor problem checking in as they could... More

We booked this Hotel as a starting point for our 16 day Sunway Safari tour. The stuff was very helpful and the rooms where clean. Unfortunatelly the shower is not separated from the room and the wet floor infront has to be passed every time when you use the toilett. So one has to clean up - which is not... More

Scheduled an overnight here at the beginning and end of an intense tour with Sunway. Check in and check out were efficient; front desk staff were helpful in ordering out for dinner - the hotel only has breakfast provided, no restaurant, snacks and drinks from a vending machine down the hall. Staff recommended against a taxi to a restaurant, emphasizing... More

Must have been my worst night of sleep ever! I was allocated a room just off the kitchen/lobby area on the ground. The hotel was empty but when I asked if I could move to another room, due the inevitable noise from the kitchen I was refused as "I had already occupied my room". And yet I was continuously awoken...

It's obvious that the Road Lodge is a basic hotel, only for overnight or very short visits. We stayed here with my family prior and after to a safari. The beds are small but the rooms are clean. But what makes this place so great is the service. Anytime we needed something, like extra blankets, someone to fix the running... More

Small rooms, but adequate and reasonable value for money. The shower was directly off the main room, the basin and toilet in a small separate room. There was sufficient room for our luggage. The breakfast was a cheap add-on which had to be paid before eating each morning, it provided a reasonable range of options including eggs, sausage, cereal, toast,... More

Rooms clean but small. No meals served except breakfast. Dial services available but means you need cash. No international adaptor. socket limiting. I could not use socket despite bringing my international adaptor because of tight location of socket. Wifi works perfect. Be ready to carry your bags to room. Good for stop over. Visiting in winter and room is cold.
