Recent guest reviews

The service was 5 star, Prompt poistance. lite and friendly. Were helpful beyond what was expected. When complications arose because of bad planning on the part of the travel agency, Staff allowed us to stay in the room longer and then took care of providing transport assisence.The room was large , well designed, quiet and clean. Everything worked .well.

Stayed for 3 nights for work at the City Lodge Pinelands. Very friendly and efficient check in staff, really made the process a pleasure. They also went out of their way with a wake-up call for a colleague who's phone battery was flat - they called a couple times and took a walk down to her room to ensure she was awake. The rooms are clean, mattress is super comfortable, and there is a Cattle Baron restaurant on the premises which is delicious and very convenient. They have a wide selection available in terms of menu for in-room dining as well. The breakfast spread was ample. The only downside that I can note is that the hotel backs directly onto the N2 highway, so if you are very sensitive to traffic noise this may not be the place for you. Highly recommended for business accommodation.

love staying at this City Lodge, always so friendly and even when full, seems so tranquil. good decent modern clean rooms great friendly staff incredible breakfasts and great value for money and has a limited dinner menu which is a plus if you don't want to gallivant.

Clean room and bathroom. Lots of signage to create awareness around the water restriction issues. Friendly staff and easy check in experience. Conveniently located. I had the room overlooking the golf course 🏌

Stayed 6 weeks, nothing was too much for these guys,absolutely fantastic, from the cleaning ladies to the management, superb..outstanding..& a very welcome experience that is hard to compare even in England.I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone visiting cape town

I get to Cape Town often but this was the first time I have had to stay in paid accommodation. I chose City Lodge Pinelands (or Mowbray Golf Course as I call it) because of the location and I didn't want to get caught up in the bustle of Grand West Casino. The access is easy and the two point security to get from the street to the car park is more reassuring than annoying. Once inside the hotel is well appointed. I did have to carry my bags up the staircase as there was no lift. There was some road noise but not sufficient to trouble me. Breakfast were good and the staff attentive and good humoured. The Cattle Baron steakhouse in the carpark is a good find. I ate there twice.

Great stay at the City Lodge. Good space in the rooms and very good wifi. Easy access to Cape Town, southern and northern Suburbs. Really nice hotel to stay at for business trips The staff are all very friendly and make you feel welcome and at home. Nice breakfast and light meals.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the City Lodge In Pinelands during a brief business stop-over in May 2017. The lay-out and design of the room is excellent for any businessperson, with a large wall table with sufficient plugs for all devices. I loved the fact that the kettle and tea/coffee supplies are kept on a separate table tray away from the main wall table. I also found the staff (reception / light supper and breakfast) to be extremely friendly and helpful. Being a light sleeper - I was initially concerned about the proximity of the N2 Highway to the hotel - but I hardly heard any traffic noise from my room. I will definitely be visiting the City lodge in Pinelands again!

My stay was a short one but it was excellent, the room had all I needed the reception was friendly and welcoming, the food was great. They should however cater more for Hallal muslim guest. If you want to give up smoking stay here because the smoking areas are quite far from some rooms.
