we had a friendly reception on our arrive and assistance was the best from the knowledgeable staff member. the room was so clean and we appreciated the air-con since the room was hot inside. the hotel was not far from the beach and we had to walk there to appreciate the sea breeze and to see different areas for entertainment. the beach area was so clean and appreciated the beach guards, security and police around the area.
The hotel is a couple of kms away from the beach, if you do not want the stress of beign close to the crowdy beach. There is a near by food outlet for quick meals. you can literally walk to the Malls and other shoping centre. Covid protocal were observed. The security was really friendly through out our 2 day stay at the hotel. The hotel staff was very friendly, greeting us in the morning and afternoon when we return. The rooms are clean and have enough sunlight. Even though I had challenges with my online booking, the lady at the reception was quick to get me a room with a smile on her face. Everyone likes to get discounts, pehaps management could consider that if a walk in customer request for one.
Beautiful., accommodating, friendly, and accessible. Best service ever received in my traveling experience. The management made us feel welcome. My advice is to make food accessible like breakfast and/or supper. I won't regret going back.
Great value for money. Staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel is safe, clean and comfortable. All the Covid-19 protocols are in place and sanitize stations are dotted throughout the Hotel. A truly safe and comfortable experience.
This hotel is often frequented by sales reps from different companies outside Durban, 5 minutes walk to the beach, the lady at the reception is very friendly & always serve you with a smile, the rooms are very clean and neat, I had a wonderful stay at this Road Lodge in Durban, plenty safe parking, English breakfast was absolutely delicious,their prices are very cost effective.
very good clean budget accomodation with secure parking.carry your own snacks cold drinks etc as no shop within walking distance.rooms are clean and spacious but tv is very small with limited channels.staff are friendly.breakfast has to accomodate halaal.
terrible dirty and very untidy if I could rate I wouldn't even give it 1 star I was at the Durban road lodge on the 17th Dec 2018 and also booked at Richards Bay for the rest of my holiday stay but I would like to emphasis that I was very disappointed with the rooms at the Durban branch it was not clean and very untidy compared to richardsbay I do hope that you could change the star ratings as you do not compete in any way with richardsbay and yet the charges for Durban is extra compared to richardsbay sorry for the bad recommendations but I really did not like my stay at the Durban branch and would never visit the place again its pathetic
I made last minute plans to visit Durban on the 30th December and i was fortunate enough to speak to Norma, who despite initially informing me that the place was fully, promised to inform me if there was a cancellation. Within the same day Norma called me and sent me a quotation after informing me of a cancellation. I arrived on the 30th December and her aura and attitude and level of professionalism swept me away. She was such a pleasure that i even contemplated extending my stay but couldn't because of pre-booked flights. I have now made Road Lodge Durban my accommodation of choice solely because of her. An asset to your Group she is! The facility is well kept and closer to all amenities and key areas of interest. Affordable and highly recommended.
The place is great if you just need a place to sleep and shower if you're in Durban for sight seeing and other activities. Receptionists are friendly and very welcoming and the security is tight. The only thing that worried me was the distance from the lodge to the beaches, its quite far. I had no problem walking to the beach in the afternoon because I needed to stretch my legs, but i came back when it got a little darker and i felt as if I'm not really safe, but all in all the lodge is amazeballs. Would definitely recommend it.
This is a very humble and affordable place to stay. Has a McDonald's right next to it for convenience. The staff is extra friendly and secure parking is provided. Breakfast is optional and boy is it delicious. Good place to stay
