City Lodge Reports Occupancy Decrease

In the financial year ended June 30, the City Lodge Hotel Group reported a decrease in average occupancies to 59 percent from 63 percent in the previous financial year.

Group revenue decreased by one percent to ZAR1.5 billion (USD0.10 billion).The hotel group cited trading conditions in South Africa, where it has 54 hotels, as the main reason for the decrease, saying trade conditions had been impacted by low business and consumer confidence, which has been exacerbated by the lack of clarity on the policy of land expropriation without compensation.

South African occupancies fell to 61 percent from 63 percent. Occupancies in the greater Cape Town area were affected by the Day Zero water-saving campaign which caused some travellers to shorten or cancel their stays.
