Liz at Lancaster Guesthouse

Grading: NAA-SA, TGCSA

What makes us different?
As you can see from the review below our accommodation is ideal for long stays and we offer excellent value for money.

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!)
