We only stayed one night due to our early morning flight the following day...for short stays this hotel will fulfill your needs, it is not suitable for longer stays during your vacation. The hotel has a secured parking area. Firstly, the reception staff was very kind and helpful. Check in and out (in our case at 5am) was easy and...

This property is located in a very dodgy location and it is best if you get there during the day for safety sake. The standards are very basic and you get charged an additional fee for breakfast. The rooms are a bit noisy, so ensure you ask for a room away from the reception but not on the top floor...

Due to an unexpected delay in our flights we spent one night in Johannesburg. For one night at the beginning or end of a holiday this is a cheap, quiet, clean and friendly place to stay. Parking is available if you have a car and there is a small garden. Breakfast was a great price of 75 rand each. The...

I had stayed here in August 2015 and also in August 2016 and had no problems at all. Very small, basic, but nice, clean rooms.

I would highly recommend travellers to NOT use this road lodge. We stayed twice over a 7 day period at Road Lodge due to lay overs and both times charged different amounts. Transfer costs from the airport is r74 per person. Which calculates to r20 per km. Which is not a "nominal" fee as advertised. The staff were unhelpful in...

I stayed at the Road Lodge after arriving on a very full international flight from Sydney. I missed the first shuttle, as the directions to get to it weren't clear, so had to wait half an hour for the next one. I was tired. [Note: The shuttle is an extra charge. It is not in between the International & Domestic...
