Road Lodge Durban
Ranked #25 of 43 Hotels in Durban
Reviewed 12 October 2016

Stayed at this place over night, it,s in a great location, In central durban, not on the beach, but right next door to macdonalds and within walking distance of Durban ICC. The place is clean but rooms havent been updated. You might find the beds too hard and the linen has aged but still clean, they still old tv's and quite small to try to watch anything, but for the price you pay you might find the standard acceptable. the staff is not too bad, but again they are not geared to please. They offer breakfast again this is acceptable, but dont be late they really dont like it. It is also about kilometre from the taxi rank. If you are looking for a holiday, you might find the place not ideal.

Room Tip: Rooms have no views to anything

Thank you for staying with us Xolani. As the Road Lodge brand is our one star brand, it is quite basic as far as amenities go, although it does have all the services and features usually offered by this star category. For more services and features, you could try our two star Town Lodge, or three star City Lodge Hotels. We’re chuffed to hear that you received great customer service from our staff. Please give us another chance to impress.

Ever thought of that away from home place you can just get in and out with no fuss? Go Road Lodge; it is so simple you even know where they keep the sugar.

Be sure to insist on none smoking room if you don't smoke.

The rest is packed up economy resting place before the next business deal and you sorted.

Breakfast is not great thou; rather hop into the McDonald next door for s quick breakfast on the go.

The hotel is nice and clean, good for average travelers, reasonable prices, good English breakfast, good location next to bus terminus and central railway station, plenty taxi service for down town or beach ride.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less noise.
