What a great please to stay in greater Joburg!!! Wonderful and quiet neighborhood, walking distance to restaurants and coffee shops. Easy access if you need to drive to downtown Joburg for business meetings. Friendly and accommodating staff, great breakfast and wonderfully spacious room with good light and desk for work. Very nice location. Laundry was returned quickly the same day. Will be staying there again on my trips to Joburg.

Leighwood Lodge is well placed for both casual travelers and businessmen. It is close to a Gauteng station (not walking distance, but within a short taxi ride or you can arrange to be picked up) as well as the Rosebank Mall, which should meet all needs. That said, Leighwood Lodge is well away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Situated in a well set out garden, the lodge comprises 6 bedrooms. Large, airy rooms, with elegant furnishings allows you to feel quite at home. I'd ask for an upstairs room, as there was nothing nicer than waking up and opening the shutters to view all the other nearby homes and their well established trees and gardens. I did find the mattress rather soft, as I prefer a 'hard' sleep, but that said, is only a personal preference. One very smart idea was having guests fill in a breakfast order the night before. That allowed you to have your breakfast ready for you, as you walked into the breakfast room. Fresh fruit salad, the best I've tasted, followed by a variety of cereals or porridges and a hot cooked plate of eggs, sausages or bacon left you well fed and ready for the day. As other travelers have said, Leighwood Lodge will definitely be our choice when next in town.

Room Tip: Upstairs room eliminate the possible noise of late comers as cars are parked right next to the downs...

We required overnight accommodation in Parktown North to attend a birthday dinner at a nearby restaurant. Leighwood Lodge is perfectly located within walking distance from the high street & close proximity to award winning restaurants. Nestled in a lush garden, Leighwood Lodge is a tranquil paradise.
Our accommodation was elegantly appointed with all luxuries catered for. High quality linen & comfortable beds made for a perfect nights' sleep. Staff are courteous and professional.
How wonderful to discover a B&B that is truly leagues ahead of its competitors. Well done Leigh & team!

Leighwood lodge is a wonderful B&B. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The rooms are big with big en suites that are modern, the rooms are also clean and everything works to make it a wonderful experience and ideal for businessmen and people staying in JHB as tourists or passing through. It is central and close to the main Sandton CBD, which is home to big business in SA.

As a company on conference in JHB 4 times per year, it is an absolute pleasure to be hosted at Leighwood. We often fill the guest house and all agree that it is our favourite venue.
The lodge is beautiful. The bedrooms are 5 star. Excellent. Thank you Sam and Leigh.
