Despite my mistake in booking date, Sam, owner of Leighwood, and the staff made us feel welcome as they made room for us at this B&B in a beautiful part of town. Fielding phone calls for us, dropping us off to meet friends, serving a delicious breakfast (try the granola with macadamia nuts!) took our minds off what could have been a disaster. Instead, we had a relaxing time in a spacious room with the fragrance of two blossoming trees wafting in from the Leighwood Lodge courtyard.

Room Tip: Over-sized King beds fit my 6'7" husband. Our host wanted to know if the bed size was suff...

I stay on business about 2 nights a wwek in Johannesburg. I will not stay anywhere else......Leighwood Lodge is everything I need: beautiful rooms, perfectly kept, with adequate everything. Competitive pricing and more cost effective than dreary hotels. Amazing staff in Henry & his wife....always smiling & available to help and managed by Sam and Leigh who always make me feel at home when I am far from home & family.
Dont consider staying anywhere else!!!

Room Tip: I prefer upstairs - better cellphone signal!

The property is immaculate, the rooms beautiful and the service fantastic! Loved the huge shower, king size bed and attention to detail. The hospitality was fantastic - Mel and Henry were so kind and welcoming! We will definitely stay there AGAIN and AGAIN

Sam (the owner) was a great host, the staff working at Leigwood was very helpful. Rooms were big, clean and with air-condition!

I recommend you to stay at this guesthouse if you would like to experience chic house and garden in the middel of Joburg.

And as a bonus: The butler makes the best scrambled eggs!

We love staying at Leighwood Lodge, not only is it beautiful, but that it topped off by the hospitality of the owners, Leigh and Sam.
The rooms are very spacious and well equipped. The underfloor heating was a treat.
Everything we wanted to do in joburg was easily accessible from the guesthouse.
We love our stays there, and will only ever stay there when we visit Johannesburg.
I highly recommend this guesthouse. Its a garanteed happy stay.

Room Tip: All the rooms are equally beautiful.
