This is a land mark portrait of a Xhosa lady wearing traditional outfit smoking a very long pipe. The picture is hanging at Port Elizabeth International Airport. The picture is very attractive, you just can not avoid looking at it and appreciate the artwork.

Stayed for 6 nights at very short notice after other B&B was no good. Amazing place.. clean, airy and light,small good condition pool outside and excellent security. Friendly helpful staff and rooms made up each day. Aircon was really good to have as was the laundry service. Breakfast ok - could be better but recommend the Lodge. Thank you.

This is a great place for an overnight stay. Clean bathroom - good shower! Eco-friendly soap and shampoo in one. Comfortable bed and pillows. Free wi-fi. Breakfast not included. Cost is R120. It's within walking distance of the airport (appr 150m). The walk is not under cover so suggest a taxi if it's raining!! Staff are helpful and welcoming and I definitly recommend this Road Lodge.

The location of the hotel is a 2-minute walk from the departure entrance of Port Elizabeth airport. Security is good, rooms are small but very clean and tidy, bathroom towels are good quality and the rooms have air conditioning for hot days/nights. TV channels are limited but, in the age of Internet access and fast, reliable wifi access (which the Road Lodge has) this was not of concern to me.
The reception staff were very welcoming and cheerful on arrival and departure and the security guard on duty overnight when I stayed was charming and very helpful with luggage trolleys.

The hotel has a perfect location , only few meters from the departures gates and the car rental returns. The rooms are very clean and everything is new and very rationally designed. The cost is very low considering the quality you get. If you have an early flight to catch, this is the place to stay. Friendly staff

Stayed at Road lodge for one night.
There was no fitted bed sheet and instead they used a flat sheet,and ended up sleeping on the mattrass protector. Not happy with Road lodge. They were always the preferred place to stay.

Wow, best arrival ever at a Road Lodge. 2 mins walk from the terminal - you can see the hotel when you land. 1 min quick, friendly, efficient check-in. Super clean - the taps and mirrors are polished so they shine. Fabulous. Great value for money. Breakfast was equally impressive. Didn't expect much for R60, but there was fresh fruit salad, yogurt, croisants, scrambled eggs, sausages, ham, cheese, cereals, muffins, toast, tea, coffee, juice. The breakfast room was full (about 40 people), with a ladies group from Durban, but there was plenty of space, food was constantly replenished, 4 smiling attendants moved away dirty plates, got you more sugar, cleaned tables, re-laid them. Wow. It was so efficient. I couldn't help comparing South Africa's Road Lodges with the chain motels in USA, where everything is plastic and the bins overflow with garbage. Not here. At the Road Lodge there is smart crockery, real cutlery and starched white cloth napkins. Very impressed and highly recommend. You could be unlucky and get a noisy group staying - I was lucky, had a good night's sleep in a comfy bed, and a great breakfast.

We stayed here for one night since we landed pretty late and in the rain and had no choice (great short distance from the airport). Rooms are very very small but you can live with that. We had been given a room that was a Smoking Room. I am asthmatic and my wife has a low tolerance for smoke. We slept with the window open and fan on, and my wife ended up sleeping on the floor in the bathroom to minimize the noxious fumes. The entrance to the accommodation was not clear for those arriving at night (as we did).

Thank you for staying with us. We’re happy that you liked the hotel’s location, but really sorry to hear about the impact that the smoking room had on you and your wife. Please accept our apologies for this. Upon making your reservation, our procedure is to request our guests room preferences. We have noted your comment regarding exterior signage and have brought all matters to the attention of hotel manager.
