Christmas in Durban City Lodge”

Neat, Super Fast WiFi connection and friendly staff

We enjoyed our stay at the City Lodge even though the Trainee wrongfully charged my card while i had already made the payment. The next time we travel to Durban again it will be our 1st hotel to book. We only struggled with food as the light meals on the menu were not appetising. But for a 3 star hotel it is the best. We will come back again very soon n the WiFi is super fast uploading our memories to social networks was easy.

City Lodge Hotel is the best”

I enjoyed my stay at City Lodge Hotel. Checking in and out was fast and easy, the staff is very helpful. What i enjoyed the most is the Gym, Pool, Restuarant and a Bar where you can order anything you want. The beach is just less than 10 minutes walk where are a lot of restaurants at the beach. we didnt have a car as we used a bus with my family but the hotel assisted with transport arrangement which was affordable and very quick.

Homely vacation”

I was very happy to arrive at the lodge after a long travelling. The reception welcomed me so friendly. I was offered a double single room instead of a double bed. The hotel assistants were so friendly to give me options of changing the room however the lodge was fully booked. I enjoyed the cleanness of my room, the efficient parking , the location ,breakfast and the staff made me feel home.

Disappointed”

Smokers smoking in non smoking areas, liquor being used openly in car park , loud and disruptive shouting in the passage by revelers in the early morning ( 01h00 - 03h00). No interference from Hotel staff to correct this , and the excuse given - it was a busy weekend due to the Durban July . Please!

Good location for ICC meetings and beach”

Value for money, secure and very helpful staff. Room doors a bit thin and some noise may come through from the corridor. You may need to negotiate steps. There is no fridge in the room. Tea and coffee making facilities are provided. In-house restaurant is open til 10 pm. A booklet to order food delivery from a variety of providers (including halal food) is provided in the room. There is a food store across the road but other shopping is a bit further away. Beds are fully stripped down to air after guests leave the room. Take the shuttle service from the airport directly to the hotel and back again for R80/journey.

That extra mile”

Allowing an early check in, smoking room and had very good burger at restaurant

Although it was a very pleasant stay I wish they would of just gone that extra mile. I was a single occupancy but booked a double room with no breakfast through Agoda. When contacting the hotel and requesting if I could amend my booking to include breakfast because I will be paying for a double and will only be a single, the manager on duty could not help with my request and said I must contact Agoda if I want to change anything.
