arrived at trhe lodge in the dark, and hated the place. I know the place is cheap, and I thought it would be ok for 5 nights, but I cried when I arrived there. The room smelled terrible and the bathroom was very old and decrepid. When we got up in the morning we tried to book into another hotel, but everything was fully booked as there was a confrence on in cape town, so we had to put up with it, as the days went on, got used to the place. The location is in a run down part of town, and it is very intimidationg to walk out of the hotel at night, as youths hanging around and it feels like they are checking you out, although, no one bothered us at all. Reception staff very friendly and helpful,and we enjoyed some lively chat in the main bar of the hotel, which a lot of ex-pat Brits frequented. All in all...not soooo bad after the initial shock wears off, but if you afford a bit more ,perhaps avoid this low budget hotel!
