Liz at Lancaster Guesthouse

Grading: NAA-SA, TGCSA

10 things a photo does NOT show you
They say a picture speaks a thousand words but here are times when a picture is silent. You can’t see these in a photogprah:

  1. Super-fast stable wi-fi internet – like 50 meg fibre optic.
  2. Good quality firm mattresses – a good night’s sleep is top priority
  3. Great water pressure – no running around the shower.
  4. Never running out of hot water - solar geysers with electrical back-up.
  5. Good heating options for winter. Under-carpet heating in the bedrooms; under-tile/wall heating in the bathrooms; all beds have electric blankets. Plus there’s a wood burner in the main sitting room and a log fire in the breakfast patio.
  6. Great fresh air circulation. There is aircon in the west facing units plus overhead fans and all units have security grill doors enabling you to sleep with doors open to your patios and the fresh summer night air.
  7. All outside lights strategically placed and block-out lined curtains. There’s nothing worse than light shining into a room when you want a good night’s sleep.
  8. A quiet location. You might hear our fruit bats or the night birds like the eagle owl and water dikkops, but no traffic or nightclubs.
  9. Waking up to the call of garden birds. You will even get to like the hadedas.
  10. Heady garden scents. Can you smell the gardenias, the syringas and the star jasmine. And that fabulous aroma of rusks baking in the oven? Or coffee brewing?

"This year I spent what would amount to a few months at Liz at Lancaster while in Johannesburg for business. The stay was beyond phenomenal, and in fact it truly felt like home while I was there. My room was superb, Liz is warm and friendly, and the staff always greet you with a huge smile. I also wanted to get in some fun weekend trips away from the city, and Liz provided a wealth of ideas and even helped arrange a car once. Liz's is now the preferred B&B that my co-workers and I want to stay in when we come to South Africa. If you're heading to Joburg and looking for a place to stay, you can't go wrong at Liz's! (PS. Staying here was also incredibly nicer than a nearby B&B I stayed at that was MORE expensive! So it's a good deal too!) "
