The advantage of this site is the proximity to the Airport. The rooms are clean and small. The bathroom is adequate with a single basin and small shower. Nothing other than the room is included in the price, expect to pay extra for breakfast. There are no cups, tea or coffee in the room as one would expect. Asking for...

Thank you for staying with us and for your constructive review. While we believe that this hotel easily meets the standards of budget one-star accommodation, this does mean that some services and facilities available in higher grade establishments are not available at the one-star level. We will certainly consider the points you have raised as part of our ongoing evaluation...

If you need to stay near the airport, this is your spot! Clean, comfortable, friendly, affordable, and close! It's nothing fancy, but who needs fancy in an airport hotel? We had an excellent experience staying at the Road Lodge Airport hotel for one night. We flew into Cape Town from London and were leaving early the next morning to fly...

Very, very handy to Cape Town airport, with a BP next door. Reasonable fare, can get breakfast there or a more value for $$ one after plane checkin, but the bed we had was so hard and uncomfortable. We had a rental car and it was very easy and close to drop this after morning check out at Road Lodge,...

This is cheap, but it is very basic, rooms are looking a bit dated and the hotel lacks amenities, however there is good wifi and is very close to the airport, albeit not in a particularly safe area. Staff were friendly and helpful, but would stay somewhere else next time

Basic and clean, affordable rooms. Very helpful receptionists. 5 minute walk to departures, ideal for an early flight. We left at 5.00am so we were provided with a packed breakfast which was very good.

The lodge is situated directly across from the Cape Town international airport which is convenient if you are flying. Problem is, there's no good view besides the airport itself. The lodge is about fifteen to twenty minutes away from the main attractions... the staff aren't too friendly but the lodge in itself is very comfortable. The rooms are just like...
