Recent guest reviews

I stayed in the hotel for 3 nights on a business trip.The hotel is not bad but definitely not the best that there is in Cape Town comparing rand value.The room was neat as well as the bathrooms.The TV in the room didn’t work to well but the service is the element that really let this hotel down.You would expect that service in Cape Town would be top class and it is just not at this hotel.The breakfast was below average and some of the continental breakfast items in my opinion was not fresh, the hot meal section was limited and even though the burgers looked good the taste was no where near.I have stayed at a number of hotels in Cape Town and I normally have only good things to say but unfortunately not this time.

Stayed for 2 nights on a business trip. Located xclose to thee airport so easy to get to. Check in was easy and all the staff were very helpful. Rooms are bigger than expected and are well laid out, only concern is the lack of plug points near the bed, but that seems to be standard at most hotels. Grand west casino located in same parking area, so easy to find restaurant for dinner without feeling crowded by people at the casino. A good stay at a very convenient and comfortable hotel, will use them again.

Stayed at the City Lodge Grand West for one night whilst attending a SPAR event in Cape Town.The hotel is well situated next to the Grand West casino.Quick and efficient checkin service. Rooms are spacious and comfortable with a nice shower and bathroom facilities. Well secured. There are no elevators.

Great choice for a business trip. Excellent service by staff, clean well kept rooms, but an average breakfast. A short walk to the casino gives easy access to food and entertainment. One issue I had with the rooms is there is no accessible plug point (that I was aware of) next to the bed.

I normally stay here when on business in Cape Town. The check in and reception desk is quick and well run. The rooms are adequate with on-suite bathroom, flat screen tv with DSTV and aircon. Beds are large and comfortable. Friendly staff and adequate facilities. Breakfast and dinner very good.

Convenient, friendly and dependable. Always know what u going to get which is important in regular business trips. Got there late at night they have a Cafe open till 10 that will serve some fresh warm food which is always welcome, makes u feel welcome!

The location of this hotel is convenient and close to most of the main attractions in the City. The hotel rooms are clean and quite spacious. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. The café at lodge closes at 22H00 but it is next door to the Casino.

Love staying at this hotel, first port of call for 2 to 3 nights each time we visit our other home, rooms are always spotless as well as the public areas. The staff cannot do enough to make you feel at home. Can't wait to see you all again soon

We stayed in the Hotel during our visit to Cape Town. And after a few challenges to find the hotel, because our address on the confirmation was wrong we had a great stay. At the check in we were booked in a smoking room, but the Woman at the reception was very helpful to change this as we both are non smoker. The location is great as you have next door the casino with loads of opportunities to eat and drink. And as well the drive to the airport is very easy. Rooms are clean and the stuff very friendly and helpful.

its like other city lodge hotel, good rooms, good service, quiet and clean. Rooms are big for a family to accommodate, this one is situated next to a casino, but the food option available are very limited and is very expensive.
