The hotel is comfortable and the staff are friendly. It is good for a business stay over. There is no pool and the hotel is situated right next to a shopping centre (Mooi River) so you are in walking distance of restaurants and movies.

The place was warm and quiet, Potchefstroom gets quite chilly at night. The ladies at reception were wonderful, and really helpful. Free unlimited WiFi for days... no buffering!!!! Right on the doorstep of Mooirivier Mall.

Whilst attending a Workshop at North West University, I stayed at the Road Lodge hotel for 3 nights. The best thing about this hotel is its location right next door to the Mooirivier Mall and 3km away from NWU Potchefstroom campus. There are certainly enough restuarants and food outlets in this area to satisfy various palates. Rooms were small, as...

You know what you are going to get with a road lodge, cheap, small rooms. This one is situated on a shopping mall complex. The parking is a secure compound off the malls main parking area. The hotel is 2 storeys high with rooms on the ground, first and second floors. Be aware that there is no lift so you...

No complaints! Stayed for one night. Location is perfect. Parking is safe and secure. General appearance is very neat. Reception was friendly, prompt and professional. The whole setup is more than acceptable, and very well priced. The room is tiny, but comfortable. Slept well. An all-round winner. Good service. Good value for money.

The road lodge was perfect for my business trip. Basic hotel but with friendly and helpful staff. Perfect if you just need a place to sleep. Right next to Mooi river mall, with all the shops and restaurants you need.

This is not a luxury hotel, but nicely situated on the main road through Potchefstroom and next to the Mooi river mall. The rooms are small, so is the tv. The bathroom is functional. And breakfast is also average. No hairdryer in the room (I kind of expected this in all hotels these days) and when we asked for extra...

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....

Thank you for the constructive review but we are so sorry about your experience in our hotel - an experience which does not meet our usual high standard of quality and service. We will definitely be looking into this on your behalf.
