I stayed at Burkleigh House for two nights on my last trip and wil stay there next week and for all future trips. The perfect place after a tough day! Beautiful ambiance, nice rooms, a wonderful garden to enjoy after swimming in the pool. The rooms are of a good size nicely furnished. The hosts are most caring and the breakfast is a poem!
I can rteally only recommend it.

At Burkleigh House, it feels like my home away from home. I absolutely love the personal touch offered by the hosts Patricia and David. Nothing is too much trouble, the food is great and I love the fact that I can also buy the most delicious home made biscuits. Yummy! Looking forward to my next visit to Burkleigh House.

My first visit to South Africa and I can't have been more happy with my choice of accommodation. It started with a friend telling me that if you're going to South Africa don't stay at a hotel, stay at a B&B and thanks to TripAdvisor I found Burkleigh.

Patricia and David have created such a wonderfully tranquil setting. I was so at peace at there. They have done a wonderful job on the landscaping and the decor. The hospitality is second, I enjoyed David's stories and Patricia's breakfasts are the best meal of the day.

Later when I extended my visit to Jo'hannesburg and sadly Burkleigh was not available I had to stay at another B&B in Jo'hannesburg. It is also very highly rated on TripAdvisor and feature for feature it might even look better on paper than Burkleigh but in reality it didn't even come close.

My tip: I found it difficult at first to find good restaurants in the evening but after I told my TripAdvisor app to search outside Randburg I was more fortunate.

I stayed for 3 nights in the best B&B in South Africa. Patricia and her team were wonderful hosts, and I enjoyed my stay. Patricia was excellent at providing me with information and care. The breakfast and dinner were a feast and are particularly recommendable. The room was quite large and had all amenities.

Thank you to Patricia and her team for a wonderful stay in Jo'burg, I will return.

Room Tip: All roms are very quiet!

I stayed in Burkleigh House two years ago. The quality at the time was already very hard to beat.

Now, after having revisiting it again, I have to say well done to Patricia, the owner of the guest house. Efforts were made to improve some areas: Internet speed is now very fast; heating in winter is satisfactory. And... now, there is an amazing breakfast menu and it changes each day of the week. That got me look forward to the night before and then got me out of bed the next morning :-). YumYum ...

I know just how hard it's to get from excellent from even more so when you're at the top end of the league table. But Burkleigh House did not get complacent and improved from 90% to 97% in two years! Salute to them - and it gives me some inspirations too...!

Patricia and her staff and family are the ultimate hosts. We were made to feel right at home in their lovely surroundings. Breakfast was a very thoughtful, elegant and delicious way to start our day. My husband and I enjoy getting to know a little about the culture and people of our destination and Patricia was very helpful in answering our questions and giving us options for our daily outings. Our experience was so positive and relaxing, it will be hard to find another place that will compare with Burkleigh House. If you are visiting from the US, please give Burkleigh House a try, you won't be disappointed.

This was the first stop in our three week holiday in South Africa and we can safely say it was the best accomodation we stayed in throughout our stay. I had planned the trip as a special holiday for my mum and had been emailing Patricia many months before we arrived asking several questions to ensure I chose suitable accomodation, and what a fantastic choice I made. Patricia and David made us feel at home from the minute we arrived. Patricia has clearly put a lot of time and effort into the guest house, the rooms were immaculate and all the decor had been carefully considered to ensure the rooms were luxurious and comfortable. Breakfast was beautiful, cooked to suit us and as we were all fussy each breakfast was different. When we had a slight hiccup and left some money in our room and we were unable to go back to collect it Patricia went above and beyond to ensure we got it back before the end of our trip. We really can't fault this guest house it is most definately 5 star and we will be recommending it to any friends who venture to South Africa. Thank you for giving us a memorable stay we hope to return some day! The McGlynns, England
