Having stayed in Thatchfoord lodge twice last year we just had to return again this year. Joyce and Pearl are the most wonderful hosts and looked after us yet again particularly after we had been involved in a very bad incident which they both helped us through as though we were family making us feel as though we were in our own home. This is a perfect start and end point for trips to Kruger as it is only 30 minutes from OR Tambo. There are countless shops and restaurants in the area and several attractions locally. Very quiet peaceful and secure location. Fabulous breakfasts cooked to your own tastes. Keep up the excellent service Joyce and Pearl.

Room Tip: The Honeymoon suite is fabulous.

we have stayed here 3 times now as we visit South Africa every year. Owner Joyce and manager Pearl are very helpful, delightful people. The location is clean, beautiful, quiet and peaceful. The other guests are interesting. Breakfast very personal. We rented a car at airport this time and drove there, a cab is expensive, public transportation is fine-we have done all three. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice.

On my business trips from the UK I have stayed twice at Thatchfoord Lodge and found it a very comfortable and relaxing location with friendly and and always helpful staff. The rooms were clean and tidy and had all of the features that a business traveler would need. The food was excellent and nicely served. The adjacent river provides interesting and relaxing riverside walks and the continuous rustle of the water over the rocks creates an excellent tonic at the end of a busy day. I look forward to my next visit.

Stayed: February 2014, travelled on business

Recently had the opportunity...no the privilege to stay 15 days at the Thatchfoord. Pearl and Joyce were incredibly welcoming and accommodated every need of both myself and my team who booked out the lodge for the week. Rooms were very well appointed and comfortable. Breakfasts were made to order. Team had several dinners during the week which were excellent.

The Lodge has a small creek that runs behind. This brings many birds to the lodge which are wonderful to watch. Stroll along the creek to relax and take in the tranquility of the location far removed from the hustle and bustle of Sandton just 10 minutes up the road.

Cant beat the value for this quietly located lodge. Certainly a car helps to get around, and the location makes it easy to connect via M1 to Sandton, Woodmead, and on to Midrand and Pretoria.

Around the area are some excellent restaurants on Rivonia road. Try Green Peppercorn, awesome Italian at Polpetta, Pappachinos, or for a Pizza make your way to Andiccio's

Certainly plan to return here for future stays now that I know I have a place to stay that makes me feel like I am at home.

Room Tip: All rooms are great.

We stayed at here for a month when we moved out of our home on our way to Australia. I would say this is a great lodge for both families and business travelers. The lodge, including the rooms are lovely, clean and comfortable. Our room had a fantastic big bathroom. The pool was great for my toddler and I to swim in as the water is very warm. The best thing about the lodge, however, is the hospitality; Joyce and Pearl went out of their way to make us feel welcome and at home. The staff were friendly and very accommodating of my toddler who joined them in the kitchen most days! I would recommend this lodge for anyone who is looking to enjoy their stay in a peaceful environment with warm and friendly service.

Room Tip: Our room had a small kitchenette which was very handy for families (I don't remember the name of the room)
