Stayed here on 30 dec for 1 night to attend a wedding. Hotel is right next to a large shopping centre so location is great. Rooms either face the mall/pool or the parking lot. The rooms still feel new and clean. Staff friendly. Only let down was the murky green pool which had not been maintained, and the boundary walls are cracked and need replastering. Besides that, I recommend this hotel as it the only decent place to stay in this town for a budget conscious stay.

We always enjoy staying over at Road Lodge, Potch. They make you feel welcome, and are very professional and very friendly. Good customer service. We needed extra pillows and they brought them to our room within 3 minutes. Rooms are always clean & comfortable. Only a short stroll to Mooi River Mall. Worth while going back every time.

Centrally located. Excellent for an overnight stay or business trip. Rooms are small but functional with private bathroom, TV and Aircon. Rooms are relatively soundproof. An extra dustbin would have been welcomed. Potchefstroom's largest mall shares the same property.

The kitchen service is terrible the guy the wears black is rude. Gilbert or gilert.
He gave me the wrong order of food and when i confronted him he told me that I am wrong, that did’t show any Professionalism at all. However everything in all was perfect.

We were passing through Potchefstroom and decided to pop into the hotel to see if they had an available room. Wow, the staff were very professional and friendly and they immediately assisted us. We were booked in without delay and I must say that everything was just perfect. Very clean and tidy. I would recommend this place to anybody.

I needed a bed and bathroom for an overnight stay, and the room served my needs perfectly. The room was clean and neat. We were accommodates with early access, due to arriving earlier than expected. Fairly priced and friendly staff.

I arrived after 21h30 in Potchefstroom to find most B&B's closed for the night. The Road Lodge had plenty of room at R550 per single without breakfast.

I was desperate and being a national chain of hotels, I thought I would be ok for the night.

The hotel smelled badly of smoke. The stairs to the 1st floor were dirty. The room , although tiny smelled and looked clean. When I opened the bed, the sheets had some sleeping creases on them and the pillow had a facial indentation.

I was immediately given a different room which had some crumbs on the bedside table.

Definitely not my place to rest next time.
