City Lodge Hotel Bloemfontein

Recent guest reviews

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.

On a recent bike ride from Johannesburg around Eastern Cape to Port Elizabeth and back we made an unscheduled overnight stop in Bloemfontein, with no reservation we pitched up at the City Lodge requested two rooms and the rooms were available so we checked in. The rooms and ensuite bathrooms were spotless - well done The Staff were welcoming and cooperative The breakfast was good but dining room was fairly crowded

Hotel is centrally located, typical basic City Lodge, average breakfast, friendly staff, basics in room, OK for business trip if only needing bed and shower! Must mention the great service I got when I checked in

We slept over on our way to Cape Town. Reception were prompt and friendly. Room in excellent condition. Enjoyed a super great chicken salad and glass of wine in the restaurant. Full buffet Breakfast was served with happy smiles ann excellent service.

When we arrived we had some challenges with booking that was soon sorted. however the reception was not welcoming. Hotel has a light meal restuarant who themselves suggest one needs to order from Mr delivery cause meal preparation will take longer with them. there are other options but that also is in a mall and requires a bit of walking. Day after check in i encountered a problem where my neighbour in the next room with adjoining doors was smoking with his friends in a non smoking hotel, so i called reception to look into that and move me if possible as i was struggling to breathe(7months Pregnant). the guy at reception informed the security would come check it out, 10 minutes later there was still no sign of the security. i then called back reception this time from my celphone since i had to get out of the room. the lady at reception told me she would request the duty manager to call me. she called me and i told her the challenge i was faced with. to which she responded and say she was coming through. she only managed to pitch 10 minutes later as i bumped into her in the corridor, she went all the way to my room pto come back and tell me that there was no cigarrete smoke she couldnt smell any. i then requested to go back with her and go to the room where the guys were smoking. when she opened the room she was greeted by a cloud of cigarrete smoke. she responded to this by telling the guys they cant smoke in the room. and asked me if i still want to be moved. no apology whatsoever for making me a lier. Then it rained i forgot my makeup bag at the hotel, only to be told the cleaning lady claims she didnot see it, however, they were more than willing to run a lie detector test at my cost. that when i lost the battle. im certain that a lot of stuff goes missing at that hotel cause when i called the lady confused me with another client that had called earlier.

"You always know what to expect when you book at City Lodge." A quote from one of our party. We had a clean odor free room with a comfortable bed. The swimming pool was in need of attention but we enjoyed it nonetheless.
