My time at the Outlook Lodge was short, but I was well taken care of. I arrived late in the evening and was greeted with a hot meal, a clean room, and a gracious host. I left the next morning after a wonderful breakfast. The Outlook Lodge feels like a home away from home, and the company is excellent.

I selected this B&B from these pages and we weren't disappointed. It's not far from OR Tambo so it allows you to get out of J'berg without travelling far after a long flight. The three of us had a very spacious two bedroom suite and an equally large bathroom. Tastefully furnished, very clean and comfortable. Communal areas are pleasant and... More
