I stayed in the "Sands room" at Thatchfoord Lodge and I really enjoyed the peaceful environment. The people are friendly and efficient and the place is great. The grounds are great and with the river running past, I cant imagine a nicer setting. A thumbs up all round. Many thanks to Joyce and Pearl and Blache. Regards Trevor

When travelling its bad enough leaving the family behind. Coming to Thatchfoord I was was met by warm and friendly people that made that experience a lot more tolerable. I was struck by the beautiful surroundings and well tended facilities. Rooms are excelent. They are close to shops for those that need it, and also have certain restaurants that would collect you from the B&B. For me breakfast is the most important meal of the day and there the selection of eats cater for just about every persons' taste. I would recommend Thatchfoord to all and would definately return.

My husband and I had a wonderful day at Johannesburg at the Thatchfoord lodge. We stayed in the Willow room which was very spacious and comfortable and has its own balcony. The pool was just perfect for the warm afternoon. The lodge is located in such beautiful surroundings, right by the river. It was so peaceful we spent the whole day relaxing at the lodge, taking walks along the river. Joyce and Pearl are simply wonderful, made our visit so comfortable and so special. The taxi ride to the airport is about Rand400.

Room Tip: The willow or any room overlooking the pool.

Thatchfoord lodge is a perfect serenity. It is nestled in a residential neighborhood close to Sandton's business district. Joyce and Pearl are absolute delights and were attentive to our needs. We were here to wrap up a business report and it was the perfect site to do so.

The birds in the morning and the constant rustle of the Sand River make it a great place to relax after a long day at work or touring. I would recommend it to anyone. This will be my base next time I am in Johannesburg.

Room Tip: I recommend the Weavers nest or the honeymoon suite. All the rooms are similarly priced but these ro...

On my recent stay the gals of Thatchfoord again demonstrated a willingness to do a little extra to ensure my comfort. I realized I was going to arrive late with no car and would not have eaten. A quick email requesting a lite dinner when I arrived was promptly answered and I had a delicious meal waiting for me.

You can expect that at Thatchfoord.

Joyce, Pearl and her friendly staff gave my family and I a truly memorable experience. Excellent, very secure location- safe, country feeling in the middle of a vibrant and chic part of Johannesburg...the sound of the running water of the Sandspruit stream, beautiful green surroundings and extremely spacious, clean and well looked after rooms with excellent facilities topped off an excellent holiday. The rooms offer privacy for both personal and business clients alike and communal areas provided us with the opportunity to meet some really good people. Will def be back and commend Joyce, Perl and their team..well done and a VERY BIG THANK YOU from us all. Ifraan
