Thank you to Joyce, Pearl and all the staff at Thatchfoord lodge for a wonderful stay. The hospitality was exceptional with attention to detail, delicious meals and a safe, central and picturesque location. The room was spacious with all amenities and very good internet reception. I would highly recommend this venue for a stay in Johannesburg.

If somebody said that you were in the middle of Johannesburg, you wouldn't believe them. The lodge is beautiful and combining the comfort and style of the rooms with the access to pleasant walks along the river behind the lodge make for a level of relaxation you would not normally expect to receive in a city lodge.

Stay was very easy - arrival simple and efficient. Rooms clean and comfortable. Breakfast and departure also very efficient. Great for an overnight work related stay. Only negative (because i have to balance the review) is that some art or prints on the wall (in Garden room) would enhance it and make it a bit more colourful and homely)

It's in a peaceful location but you do have to wonder, when night security is employed to look after guests vehicles when the place is already surrounded by an electric fence in a gated community!
