I stayed here for 6 days and enjoyed it very much. Sam and his team made me very comfortable. Parktown North is a delightful area. I walked to yoga, restaurants and shops. The garden is very serene, the breakfast delicious and the rooms really comfy and well equipped. Guests have their own entrance and can come and go without disturbing... More

We stayed for 3 nights at The Leighwood Lodge February 5-7. Sam and Leigh, the owners, could not have been more charming. The location is convenient, very close to Hyde Park, the rooms more than comfortable, very clean and roomy and the staff incredibly friendly and attentive. There was a mini fridge in the room, a coffee maker, TV and... More

Had a terrific time at Leighwood Lodge which was made special from our hosts Leigh and Sam. Can highly recommend this beautiful stylish lodge. Definitely home from home comforts and would certainly return.

This is not really a BnB but more of a home from home on so many levels. First, the general ambience is most welcoming; unsurprising as Johannesburg apparently is the largest man-made forrest on earth and the views from the terrace boast stunning views across the garden and beyond that, to jacaranda and bougainvillaea (see pic). There is also a... More

On a recent trip to the Kruger Park we decided to spend a few days in Johannesburg to catch up with friends. I'd walked past Leighwood Lodge many times when I lived in Parktown North so decided to give it a try. And I'm very glad we did. The rooms are more five star hotel than B&B. We had a... More

Recently spent 15 days in southern Africa vacationing. We used Leighwood Lodge as our base camp and loved every aspect about it. Spent a total of 4 nights here between excursions to Victoria Falls, the Chobe River and a game reserve adjacent to Kruger Park. The rooms are beautiful and spacious and the breakfasts was top notch. The owner and... More

We stayed at roughly 10 guesthouses and BnBs on our trip to South Africa, some of which were just superb. We would not rate Leighwood Lodge highest among them, but we enjoyed our stay. There was nothing to complain. The bed was good, we had a fairly good sleep although the sound coming from the fridge was a bit annoying... More
