Spacious for a hotel of its type”

Having been built many years ago, it has more space in all functional areas. I’d normally want to get out and only return to sleep, but there’s ample room for a drink and meal at the hotel. Ideal mix of amenities for me on a business trip. Nothing flashy but just good service in a clean, safe venue. Thanks WOW staff at City Lodge Barbara Road.

Not the City Lodge I expected”

I was really upset when I went to check in at the hotel I was told I was. Poked into a over City Lodge and. Not the one at the airport! I googled airport Hotels and the City Lodge popped up - only to find that the one I googled "airport hotels" was 2.4km away and I had to take. A shuttle bus - there are two City Lodges as I was told ! Then I waited 45 min for a shuttle only then to be told I was to be charged per person for the shuttle ! I phoned housekeeping to ask for Toothpaste as we were not . permitted any on flights and a shaving kit - only to be told once Again this was provided at an additional cost! The positives are - the staff They where helpful and Philemon was really sympathetic but it was out of his hands! The hotel is neat and tidy and could be a great place to stay - but I was so disappointed with the distance to the airport ! Especially as my daughter and I had different flights to catch at different times ! This seemed to be false advertising!
