Excellent stay. Friendly, very helpful, owners and all staff members. Good position, quiet and secure next to the river with very pleasant walks. Close to major highways and not far from Morningside and Sandton CBD which is convenient for shopping and restaurants.

Thatchfoord Lodge was such a great surprise! My stay in Johannesburg turned to be memorable: I had an intensive 2 work days, and being hosted here gave me the energy and calm I needed.

Booked a few rooms for my daughters intimate wedding. Wow - Joyce and Pearl & their team did an excellent job in addressing all our needs from accommodation, breakfast to post wedding drinks and snacks. Great location with a strong flowing river. Their is continuous improvement to the facilities. Would not hesitate to stay again at the Lodge.

Stayed 4 nights here while in Johannesburg. This is a very average B&B. Rooms are comfortable but lack good interior design. You could be staying at someone's house. Breakfasts were quite good. The house overlooks a river but this is fenced off and you need to ask someone to unlock the gate if you want to walk along the river....

We could not fault the accommodation, food, or customer service, where the staff went the extra mile to make our stay a memorable experience in beautiful tranquil surroundings My Mother of 86 was treated like a "Queen" & didn't want to leave! We can highly recommend this little gem, that for us was so much more personal than staying in...

The place pretends to care for its customer. However there was a problem with my booking, which I immediately notified the hotel of. Not only did they had zero flexibility and couldn't care less for the circumstances, but they also LIED TO ME, pretending they would call back the next day to find a final arrangement. They never called back...

I stayed for 3 night while doing a course. Room was fabulous, quiet, peaceful with a soothing flowing of the river noise. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was "lekker". Will stay here again.

Had a one night stay at this bed & breakfast. The facilities were clean & comfortable but the place lacked character. The cooked breakfast was minimal, & the overall experience was "ok". Adequate is the best word to describe our stay.....
