City Lodge Hotel Bloemfontein

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We were in Bloem for a cricket tournament and after discovering our accommodation didn’t have Aircon we moved to the City Lodge who were fantastic about accommodating us at a moments notice. The location was great. Walking distance to mall. Rooms spacious and clean. Staff friendly. Lovely pool area.

The rooms are nice and the hotel is generally clean. I did not have a good experience though, firstly at 07:00 am there was no cappuccino which is a basic for breakfast. So big fail. Secondly extremely bad service from the manager at dinner. They just switched off our lights without any explanation or communicating to our table first, I had to ask the waiters and chase the manager and demand that we cannot eat in the dark. Mind you only our lights were switched off but not other patrons, and it had undertones of discrimination. The lack of respect, communication and total disregard of customer service was completely shocking.

Perfectly situated within walking distance of shops. Room clean, beds comfortable, limited TV channels. Perfect for a few days with a lovely pool and outdoor area. Nice bar. Didn't eat there but plenty of restaurants nearby.

I found the property very well kept. The staff was friendly and helpful. Hotel is safe and secure. I checked in late and left early so I didn't see everything. They have light snacks at the bar that I found fresh and tasty. If ever in bloemfontein again, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here.

Situated in the middle of town makes this lodge convenient, nice and close to the mimosa mall, so lots of options for dinner. The room was much larger than expected and very spacious. Staff were friendly, fast and efficient at check-in, despite dealing with a booking issue of another guest. Service in the morning at breakfast was friendly as to be expected. A very good stay, would happily stay there again when in Bloem.

Stayed here numerous times over the last 15 years and it still is as good as new. Spotlessly clean, comfortable, well appointed and beds that invite rest. Centrally located opposite a mall , close to sports venues-walking distance! and 5 min drive to cross country highway. Free WiFi and staff that treats one as part of the family. Breakfast is "scrumptious", the night time bar and cafe : great menu (had Thai chicken curry - a 9 for taste and presentation) Overall not only value for money but a small vacation every time! Unreservedly recommended.

Stayed 4days and was very impressed with service and cleanliness.Staff was very helpful and friendly,room was inspected after cleaning was done by supervisor.Great location walking distance from good restaurants and popular mall.

The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. My Room was clean and comfortable. There was secured parking for my vehicle behind closed gates. every Morning the Breakfast was on time and a great variety of food was available. Free WiFi, thank you

In a nutshell - Every Aspect was excellent. Room beautiful, very clean, quite, very helpful and friendly staff. Safe secure parking. Very accessible from the N1 Freeway. Information supplied in the room was fantastic. Will most definitely return.

My wife, I and two of our friends stayed over on Saturday evening for the one night. We had to check in late, about which we let the staff know when we realised it. The rooms were perfectly clean, with everything working. The staff, not only at reception, were most helpful and friendly. We did not have dinner there, but the breakfast was outstanding! This was my second stay in this hotel and I will go back any time.
