The hotel and staff were lovely but was amazed that they only supplied breakfast from their kitchen. If you wanted evening meal you order room service which comes from sister hotel City Lodge and they bring it to your room or they can drive you to their restaurant. The TV and the bed were small although it was very clean. As the room was small we looked for a lounge or somewhere we could read during the evening but there was only the breakfast room with hard chairs and poor light for reading, The pool was dirty, although the area was quiet, it did deter you from using it.

Road Lodge Sandton has a great location, clean rooms nice staff and nice garden and lot to walk around and relax. Bird enthusiasts will particularly enjoy the visits in the garden in front of the pool. Breakfast was quite good and great value for money.

As a guest from Namibia, I recently stayed at Road Lodge for three nights, and I wanted to share my experience with fellow travelers. Overall, the hotel offers beautiful aesthetics and has a friendly and helpful staff, which contributed positively to my stay. However, I must address a significant concern regarding the control of noise within the premises.

Upon my arrival, I was immediately impressed by the hotel's elegant design and the warm welcome from the staff. Throughout my stay, the employees were attentive and willing to assist with any requests or inquiries, making my interactions with them enjoyable.

Regrettably, I encountered an issue with noise disturbances during my stay, which greatly impacted my ability to rest and relax. After experiencing a sleepless night due to noise caused by other guests, I expressed my concerns and requested a cancellation and refund. The hotel offered an alternative solution by moving me to another room. However, the experience in the new room was even worse, as the noise levels persisted and disrupted my sleep further.

As a guest, I believe it is essential for a hotel to maintain an environment conducive to rest and tranquility, especially during nighttime hours. While the hotel's staff was responsive to my concerns, the noise issue was not effectively resolved, ultimately leading to an unpleasant experience.

I sincerely hope that the management addresses the noise control concerns promptly. It is my belief that by prioritizing the peaceful enjoyment of all guests, the hotel can provide a truly exceptional experience.
I would recommend that the hotel management takes immediate measures to address this issue to ensure a restful and comfortable experience for all guests

The hotel foyer seems to come alive at night, but not in a good way. Drunken patrons, and scantily clad girls hanging out at the bar. No place to eat dinner safely- except in your room.
The staff and the food were good through. The room simple, adequate and clean enough. The cleaning fragrance was a bit overwhelming in the room.

Been going there for as long as I can remember but the last time I was there 3 of our cars where stolen in the car park and we were told by management that you park at your own risk.

Their cameras where not working, their gate was not working and they had 2 guards working while this was happening!

I am stil amazed.

I'm a middle age woman and I travelled alone to South Africa and needed someplace safe, and comfortable. This hotel fit the bill. I stayed there two nights. The staff were very friendly and exceptionally helpful. There is no restaurant, although they serve a generous buffet breakfast in an attractive space, and breakfast was included in my room price. There is a free, gated/secured parking lot. The hotel is in a quiet suburb. I did not have a car, and there are no restuarants close by, (although there was a McDonald's and a KFC within walking distance) but there was an extensive "room service" menu, which I ordered from. Various local restaurants deliver to the hotel- cheaply and quickly. It was a good alternative.

The room was clean, although not large- would have been a squeeze for two. The bathroom was small but adequate for one person. There was internet access in the lobby, and a small bar, too.

Not luxurious but good value for money and I would stay there again.

It's not like home, but next best thing. Good friendly service and was approached by the friendly Manager, Eugine.

Bed is very comfortable TV could be a little bigger.

When ever in JHB I always stay here.

You have to pay 195 rand for one day Internet access. Service not the best, unable to charge drinks to my room or pay by card, insisted on cash only!!!!!! Why???? Food terrible and it's not from the hotel, it comes from a take out restaurant and its delivered wrapped in foil. When I was told 45 mins when I ordered, I thought to myself this is odd because the restaurant was empty, I jokingly asked where they were getting it from, as it turns out they did get it from somewhere else. Make matters worse my toilet seat was dirty in my room and the rooms itself appear to be dirty. Won't be staying here again. Learnt a valuable lesson. Look on trip advisor before booking a hotel.
