“Business trip good stay”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

As a business traveller from the UK, I've just stayed at Thatchford Lodge and can say that is a very relaxed lodge with great rooms, great breakfast and is very friendly. Much better than the Sandton Sun

This is a character filled homely B&B in a secure gated community within easy reach of Sandton. Joyce the owner and Pearl go out of their way to make you feel at home and offer advice on local attractions. We were accommodated in the Weaver suite which was private and secure and well appointed. Overlooking the peaceful garden and river Thatchfoord is a great alternative to the hub bub of a commercial hotel. Ensure you obtain clear directions to the lodge as the signage at the turnoff from Bowling Avenue into the gated community is non-existent. Tip: Turn left into the gated community from Sandton direction immediately after the Police Station on Bowling Avenue.

Room Tip: The Weaver suite is a private haven.

We spent a couple of wonderful days at Thatchfoord Lodge. The facility is located in a secure neighborhood and offers off-street parking. The manager was terrific as were the staff - all of whom were very attentive. Our room was large, bright and airy with a wonderful view of the lawn and pool-area. Breakfasts were great, offering a nice variety - try the savory mince! Good Wifi. There is a lovely nature walk that runs along the back of the property - do take a moment to enjoy a stroll. Thatchfoord is somewhat of an oasis in the middle of a very busy city and provided us with a very relaxing experience. We highly recommend this wonderful B&B.

My wife and I were looking for a holiday place in South Africa online. We decided to search online. Out of the many replies we received, we picked Thatchfoord Lodge.
It was a great experience. We loved the peaceful nature of the place and the attention we received. From the airport pick up and dropping, the Sands river and many other services. We will certainly be back.

A quiet and ideally located B&B. The babble of the stream and the bird life added a charm of a country location. Pearl was a very helpful host. With the rooms opening out onto the porch make for great relaxation day and night. The rooms were large and well equipped. Our 5 day stay was most enjoyable and all our needs were addressed promptly by Pearl and Joyce. Thanks for a great stay. Recommended!

We only stayed one night. Nice and Average are good words to describe this lodge.
The staff are friendly and helpful. The booking was easy to make on the internet. The book in its self was hassle free. The rooms: Spacious; Strange sweet sent in the room we sayed in; Most amenaties you would need are in the rooms; Comfortable beds!.Easy enough to find with a GPS. And easy to access the rest of Johannesburg from this area.

We would stay again.

Amazing environment, calm and safe. Perfect service. Joyce and Pearl will be always at your disposal but they will never disturb you. Don't have a fitness center but you can swim and walk by the wonderful river next to the lodge.
