This is our third visit to Burkleigh House & every time we are met with a wonderful welcome. All our needs are met from excellent comfortable room to gourmet breakfast. Washing/ironing done to perfection and beauty and peace is always found in the gardens. Patricia & David are warm and wonderful hosts backed by their staff who are so dedicated...

The service was prompt and friendly. The food (dinner) is a taste sensation with one of the many flavours sparking a pleasant memory. Extremely clean and well equipped rooms and the garden was a place of serenity after a long day.

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at Burkleigh House and the experience just gets better every time. As always the service was wonderful, the rooms are great. Patricia and David are perfect hosts sharing their expertise of not only the local area but safari trips in neighbouring countries. Most tourists visiting Johannesburg end up in the sterile hotels...

This was the last night of our Holiday and as we had stayed here last year, we were all in agreement that this should be the place to stay. As before the house and staff were very welcoming and even though they were preparing for a wedding the next day nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are well equipped...

I cannot fault this guesthouse after staying here at least 4 times before. Breakfast is superb. Beds and linen are super comfy. Patricia and Estelle are superb hosts. The location is perfect for getting to during Jo'burg traffic. The grounds are very relaxing. Keep up the awesome service guys and make sure my room is warm as it usually is...

We stayed, along with our 2 cats, for 2 1/2 weeks. We were treated like family. The staff are wonderful and the management very friendly and caring. I recommend a stay here rather than a hotel. The food is fabulous.

Lovely staff and a wonderful haven from the bussy-ness of Johannesburg! Breakfasts are delicious, it's very centrally situated and I liked the addition of a security guard at the gate after dark. IMy new home from home!

Initially, we chose Burkleigh House for both location to our son and the quality of reviews from other guests: We were not to be disappointed. We arrived from a late flight and were shown to our room. The room is beautifully furnished with antiques. There is a small kitchen area and a well appointed bathroom with both shower and bath....
