Liz at Lancaster Guesthouse

Grading: NAA-SA, TGCSA

My daughter and I came to stay over the Easter holidays. Last time we stayed at Liz' guesthouse 3 years ago, so we knew what to look forward to. Breakfast is excellent. The neighborhood is very quiet. There are a couple of restaurants and a supermarket in walking distance. Rosebank and Sandton are close. Liz arranged tickets at Market Theatre for us, which was great! We enjoyed the swimming pool and the garden... We had such a good time. Liz and her team took care of us, we felt like we were at home. Thank you so much, we will definitely come again
