doing business in Jo'burg we enjoyed very much having a nice and calm rest in the night in that lodge - for a good start in the day we received a delicious breakfast each morning - thank you very much for your hospitality.

The Thatchfoord Lodge is not just a great B&B, it is a hub of personal care managed by Joyce and Pearl who in every aspect excell in the expectations which the visitors might have. I have been traveling for more than 25 years across the globe and stayed in many countries and many hotels and guest houses. This Lodge however,...

Super friendly hostess and staff. There was nothing too small or too large for them to help us with. Clean rooms, great food in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Breakfast is included and other meals are easily arranged. The garden and pool area is well kept and inviting. The location by the Sand River adds to the inviting suroundings. It...

This a late review as I stayed over at Thatchfoord for a weekend in February. We stayed in the Willow Room and had our own private little balcony overlooking the pool and garden. Beautiful room with a little kitchenette. The staff was friendly and the guesthouse is located close to shopping centres and good restaurants in a wonderful gated neighbourhood.

Me and 10 other colleagues travelled to Johannesburg for a Business trip in July 2011 for 6 months. All these 6 months we stayed at Thatchfoord Lodge (I guess the longest any guest stayed anywhere), Most of the rooms were occupied by us and each of them is better than the other. Rooms are kept clean everyday, and the long...

Accommodation was great, rooms are lovely and comfortable. Breakfast every day was delicious. The location is great in quiet safe neighborhood, peaceful area with gorgeous River walk/run behind Lodge. Near to small shopping mall. Pearl is a wonderful, friendly, interesting hostess!

I discovered Thatchfoord Lodge while looking for a comfortable and peaceful place in the Sandton area for my parents to stay... and what a serendipitous discovery! The lodge is amazingly located, with a small river running by the property. The neighbourhood is peaceful safe and secure, feels completely removed from the Jo'burg hustle and bustle and yet is conveniently located...
