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....

It was our third stay at Burkleigh House. As usually, absolutely perfect: the staff, the room, the garden, the breakfast... We felt at home! The best B&B we tried in Johannesburg. We"ll come back! We definitely recommend this guest house.

The service was excellent and the attention to detail in the room was impressive. The garden is just beautiful and the meals that we had were the best. In fact I have never had food prepared to that degree of perfection in any other Guest House before. Well done!

I'm very sad to be leaving! Best guest house I've ever been to, and probably the best food I've eaten too! Perfect! Impeccable! Unbelievable! Amazing staff and hospitality too. Beautiful gardens and clean rooms. Hope to be back soon!!! I would definitely recommend this guest house to any and everybody!

My husband and I recently visited Burkleigh House whilst we were in JHB for a wedding. This guest house is absolutely exquisite! The rooms are well-equipped (recommend a long bubble bath) and the beds are luxurious! The garden is absolutely immaculate - what dreams are made of... The breakfast was the best I have ever had at a guest house.... More

Stayed here with a party of friends (8 of us in total) and could not fault it. From the friendly greetings to the wonderful breakfasts we were treated more like friends than clients. David and Patricia even put us in touch with a friend in Botswana, as this is on our wish list for our next trip to South Africa.... More
