I just wish there could be some sort of room for smoking, as a non smoker I struggled when accessing the main doors and reception since smoke could be smelled in those areas as well. other than that all was perfect.

The Cape Town Lodge was an excellent place to see Cape Town. There are views of the ocean and Table Mountain. The roof top pool was ok. Close to Green Square and the craft market. Near Long Street and many excellent places to eat.

The hotel requires to get wifi you go downstairs ever 500mb to get another code and you have to put in every login. Also I have seen larger bathtubs than their pool and the elevators take forever. It has some nice features but don't pay for their breakfast so many other places around. Cafe R or Jason's on Bree

This hotel is very good and I enjoyed my stay. Its very clean with good rooms and beds. It is however very corporate and that comes through a little. One example is only two each of milk, tea ,coffee and sugar. More flexibility in personal touch areas would help. one other point I would make as the shower is in...

Much better options available at this price. Finishes are old and worn, decor is hideous and the hotel passages smell funny. The only things it has going for it are perfect location and air conditioning. The restaurant downstairs is an overpriced travesty. The African theme of the hotel is outdated. The hotel itself is very old fashioned. The shower sits...

I stayed here for business for my first (and hopefully last) time. To begin with, several members of my group weren't picked up from the airport even though they had arranged for, and paid for, the hotel to pick them up. The hotel refused (and was quite rude) to give a refund even though it was clearly the fault of...
