“Another Excellent Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

My home away from home in Johannesburg, South Africa. It all starts with a friendly and warm reception from the staff. The rooms are wonderfully comfortable with a large bath, great light, and a balcony to walk out onto. I enjoy the easy walk to the nearby restaurants and the variety of eating options. This is my fourth stay this year and always comfortable and convenient.

Truly a lovely stay. Located in a calm beautiful leafy suburb, it feels like a home away from home. Attentive service, yet not intrusive. Perfect stay for any business trip! Thanks for a beautiful week in Joburg! Hope to be back soon!

The best guest house I have stayed in Johannesburg. The rooms are large with all the features you would expect. The minibar is well priced, nothing better than sitting in the garden, enjoying an African sunset. Very close to Rosebank and Sandton where the are plenty of choices for a meal, however your welcome to join the family for a home cooked meal, which is great.

I will be back.

Luxurious "Bed & Breakfast" in quiet suburb of Johannesburg. Spacious room tastefully decorated with modern bathroom which had a tub and a shower. Very comfortable bed.

Excellent breakfast with fruit salad, cereals, bacon, sausage, eggs etc. - you fill in the order the evening before and state the time you want to have it!

Friendly owners and helpful staff. Definitely a wonderful place to stay!

Room Tip: Try to get a room which doesn't face the parking area, otherwise you might get disturbed by gues...

Lovely big room, well decorated, excellent taste and a nice big shower. I appreciated the fresh milk in the fridge for my coffee, good selection of everything. I enjoyed the whole experience apart from the person getting my breakfast the next morning, he was short and abrupt and it felt as if I was in the way and a burden.

Stayed there for 3 nights during a business trip. I had a great room, very spaceous and with a large bathroom.The service was perfect and the owners Sam and Leigh were absolutley helpful with for any questions or issues. The Lodge is located in a nice quiet neighbourhood, close to Rosebank Mall. The Breakfast a la Carte is delicious, especially the omlet.
I would recommend Leighwood Lodge anytime.

First of all, the room was superb, spacious, decorated with great taste, fantastic bed. The bathroom was also great, with both a spacious shower and a really nice bath tub. Complimentary biscuits, coffee and tea were available, as well as a fridge in the room with some items to sell. I did however have some issues with the staff. My room was on the ground floor and I was forced to close all the blinds all the time because it was located by the gate and the main path way, for example one early evening one member of the staff kept walking by and peeking in through the window (as a woman travelling alone that did not make me feel comfortable at all). There was also a miscommunication around keys (due to a lack of information) which led to me being scolded like a school child by a member of the staff and by a member of the management team. This happened while I was sitting down to have breakfast and I thought the timing and the tone was completely inappropriate. However the other member of the management team was lovely and very helpful. The location was good, in a quiet and very safe neighbourhood, and a five minute cab ride from the Rosebank train station.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the first floor (and not ground floor) to get a view and also prevent staff from p...
