This lodge is very convenienty located for buisiness travel due to its proximity to the airport and to main transport network (keeping in mind that Johannesburg is a horizontal city and that distances are big). It is run in a very efficient and friendly manner.
I travelled there with a group of 11 Brazilians, who are among the most demanding travelers I know, especially as far as service is concerned, and they loved it. We found that Janet and Elaine, the co-owners were always available to help us organizing our trip and making our stay pleasant. We were made felt at home yet could benefit from the board room for our meetings. Dinner is also very tasty and reasonably priced. It is a good option, as long as you are ready to give 1 day's notice for it to be prepared. The only improvement we'd suggest is a free internet connection, and if this is not economically sustainable, at least one that is not limited in traffic and that is faster that the current one. Also, I believe that this would be a good option for a family holiday: rooms are big and comfortable, the place is very quiet and kids can play around in the pool (watch one for very small ones though, as it is not fenced off, and make sure you get a front yard room that is further away from it)
