What a lovely little location within striking distance of everything Jo'burg has to offer. The Lodge is actually a sprawling complex of 2-3 buildings (half a dozen rooms) within a gated community near Sandton that abuts a rushing stream. The river delivers wonderful sound and birds, so if you squint your eyes, you could almost imagine you're back in the...

Can't thank Pearl and Joyce & their staff enough for helping to make our family holiday one to remember forever. Delightful rooms, exceptionally attentive staff and a jaw dropping location all added up to make Thatchfoord a MUST if you're looking to stay in Joburg. The Willows room with it's open terrace was perfect for catching late afternoon sun, and...

The lodge is situated on the banks of a little river. I spent a number of evenings walking or jogging along the green strip that runs past at the bottom of the garden, which is a fantastic setting along with easy access to Rivonia road and all that Sandton has to offer. I stayed in the Noka room, which has...

Our first introduction to South Africa was here at Thatchfoord. The staff/ owners Pearl and Joyce were so hospitable. The room was spacious and the thatched roof made the room feel cozy. The breakfast was wonderful. They even made sandwiches for us when we arrived late after a very long two days of traveling! Oh and they served vegetarian fare...

We spent three nights at Thatchfoord with our two young children during a brief stay in Johannesburg in October. We were made to feel extremely welcome and arriving late at night in pouring rain, appreciated the help unloading the car under the cover of umbrellas!! The rooms were very comfortable and spacious and the breakfasts were great: lovely fresh fruit,...
