“Excellent!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

I had a great stay at Leighwood Lodge. The level and service was great with very warm and hospitable staff. The room was beautiful and luxurious and the beds were comfortable. Overall, no complaints at all and will come back again if I have the opportunity to do so.

I was booked into Leighwood Lodge for a work trip. It was a great change from personality-free hotels. Sam and Henry were great and very helpful. The fresh coffee in your room a real bonus as well as the home made cookies. Would love to visit again.

My home away from home in Johannesburg, South Africa. It all starts with a friendly and warm reception from the staff. The rooms are wonderfully comfortable with a large bath, great light, and a balcony to walk out onto. I enjoy the easy walk to the nearby restaurants and the variety of eating options. This is my fourth stay this year and always comfortable and convenient.

Truly a lovely stay. Located in a calm beautiful leafy suburb, it feels like a home away from home. Attentive service, yet not intrusive. Perfect stay for any business trip! Thanks for a beautiful week in Joburg! Hope to be back soon!

The best guest house I have stayed in Johannesburg. The rooms are large with all the features you would expect. The minibar is well priced, nothing better than sitting in the garden, enjoying an African sunset. Very close to Rosebank and Sandton where the are plenty of choices for a meal, however your welcome to join the family for a home cooked meal, which is great.

I will be back.

Luxurious "Bed & Breakfast" in quiet suburb of Johannesburg. Spacious room tastefully decorated with modern bathroom which had a tub and a shower. Very comfortable bed.

Excellent breakfast with fruit salad, cereals, bacon, sausage, eggs etc. - you fill in the order the evening before and state the time you want to have it!

Friendly owners and helpful staff. Definitely a wonderful place to stay!

Room Tip: Try to get a room which doesn't face the parking area, otherwise you might get disturbed by gues...

Lovely big room, well decorated, excellent taste and a nice big shower. I appreciated the fresh milk in the fridge for my coffee, good selection of everything. I enjoyed the whole experience apart from the person getting my breakfast the next morning, he was short and abrupt and it felt as if I was in the way and a burden.
