Had a wonderful stay at Thatchfoord Lodge in Sandton, South Africa. The hosts, Joyce and Pearl were lovely, friendly, kind and very helpful ladies. The rest of the staff were also very helpful and friendly. The nature and surroundings were beautiful and the pool was awesome. The breakfast was excelent. All in all a great place to unwind and relax... 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

I stayed in the Noka room, which has... More

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... More

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,... More

We stayed at Thatchfoord Lodge for 6 days. What a pleasure it was. The owners and staff were so friendly and helpful. The accommodation was fabulous. Our room looked out over the Pool. We had more than enough cupboard space, a private bathroom with a modern bath, a large shower and toilet. In addition the room as a small two... More
