Leighwood Lodge is wonderfully situated in Parktown North. It was easy to access from the airport and very easy to get around to my meetings. The staff were friendly, and the room was fantastic. I'd highly recommend it.

Perfect place to stay in Johannesburg, if you are looking for peace and quiet. The pool and inner courtyard are beautiful, and the rooms very spacious. Sam was a perfect host! Oh, and the breakfast was a perfect way to start each day.

A family wedding brought us to Johannesburg and we were lucky enough to find Leigh and Sam at "The Lodge". 8 of us arrived and we were made to feel so welcome. We were family reunited from Australia and had a lot of catching up to do. Sam and Leigh bent over backwards to accommodate all our requests - dinners,... More

My company rented out the entire property for those of us attending a conference at our world headquarters. Coming from NYC, I had no idea what to expect but I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. Sam and Leigh were amazing hosts. The rooms are huge and very comfortable with large spa like bathrooms. The staff is very attentive... More

I stayed at Leighwood Lodge for almost a full week. And the service there is stunning! And Leigh's home made meals in the evening made me feel like I was at home. Thank you Leigh and Sam!!! Regards Wimpie

Leighwood Lodge is a delightful oasis of calm in a lovely neighbourhood of Johannesburg. I stayed here for a week along with 5 colleagues during a work conference in the area. The accommodation block has 6 very large rooms in it, and is in a lovely mature garden with a small swimming pool. The ambiance is delightful, and the public... More

My husband and I had to attend a dinner in Parktown North and wanted to book accommodation in the area. We were able to book a room on very short notice and were even offered discount by the friendly owner Sam. The guesthouse was literally around the corner from where we had to be so in perfect location. The room... More

We had a large team of 30 yr old kiwi's staying here. The rooms, bathrooms, and grounds are all great. The hosts were absolutely amazing, they were friendly but discreet, and made sure we were all looked after and having a great time. Do not stay at a hotel, you must stay here you'll have a much better experience.

I arrived in Joburg for a week long business trip. When I received my luggage at the airport it was drenched in what appeared to be red wine. (Why someone would put red wine in their check-in luggage is beyond me). None the less it was all over my clothes and my suitcase was drenched. Mel, the care taker at... More
