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)

This lodge is perfect for a couple nights stay in Joburg. 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! Nonetheless, the room we had was large and comfortable, breakfast was great and the... More

The staff tried hard but this was a disappointment after our stay in Cape Town where for similar money the standards were much higher. Laundry for example was considerably more expensive than in CT. There was a power cut on the first day and after the municipality got up and running the team forgot to switch our water heater back... More

Thatchfoord Lodge is located in a quiet neighborhood with lovely landscaping. The included breakfast is delicious. Before booking the room, confirm with the hotel the exact number of beds in the room. The hotels.com listing was misleading and it was a sofa bed instead of the king bed advertised. This was the only issue I encountered during an otherwise enjoyable... More

We travelled as a family group of 17, including 7 children. Pearl and Joyce, who run the lodge, could not have been more helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. When a chocolate gluten free cake was requested to celebrate a birthday, the most magical, magnificent cake emerged together with some alcohol free champagne to go with it. The children loved...
