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... More

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! All staff were great!

My husband and I have just spent the last two weeks at this beautiful lodge. From the moment we arrived, we felt right at home. We were offered a light supper upon arrival after a long day of traveling. The room we stayed in was lovely and was always kept nice and clean by the wonderful staff. Esther, Deborah, and... More

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... More

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... More

We spent a week at the Thatchfoord Lodge and felt welcome from the moment we stepped in. We were 4 adults and 3 children. The two ladies Pearl and Joyce were very friendly, warm and had an heart for children. Every morning at breakfast we got suprised with a specialty from the kitchen which was highly appreciated. I got inspired... More

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... More

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... More
