This is a family place, you feel welcome because you truly are welcome. The breakfast is a must and if you want to eat fresh scones, better hurry, they are the first to vanish. The dinner was always exquisite, I was always waiting it with impatience to discover what the chef had created. We enjoyed a lot to wake up... More

Our stay at the Burkleigh House was such a nice experience. The staff is super friendly and welcoming and the surroundings superb. It is a great place to relax after spending a day in the buzzing Johannesburg.

I was so impressed with Burkleigh House. It is the most beautiful place. The gardens are well tended and spectacular. The rooms are well decorated. The staff is very friendly. The gate guard came out every night I came in late to make sure I'm okay. If you are traveling for business or even for a quick getaway in the... More

I had to commute to Jhb to work for a period of 6 months. After my initial 2 night stay at Burkleigh House, I made this my regular home away from home. I spent 3 nights every week from April to September. Room 3 was perfect for me. Most of my travel was during winter and the staff ensured that... More

At Burkleigh House, it feels like my home away from home. I absolutely love the personal touch offered by the hosts Patricia and David. Nothing is too much trouble, the food is great and I love the fact that I can also buy the most delicious home made biscuits. Yummy! Looking forward to my next visit to Burkleigh House.
