Leighwood Lodge was perfect for our needs - comfortable, well appointed, conveniently situated and Leigh, the proprietor, could not have done more to make us feel comfortable and well-catered for. Our room was attractive and spacious, the rest of the premises very welcoming, the swimming pool most inviting and the breakfast and service first class. We very strongly recommend a stay there

Beautiful large property with spacious and comfortable rooms, stunning gardens and swimming pool (perfect to cool off in after a long flight and day of sightseeing). Leigh and Tug are exceptional hosts and arranged a delicious home cooked dinner for us on our first night, as well as providing lots of local recommendations. The staff were extremely kind and treated us like family, nothing being too much trouble. We felt like we were in a home away from home and didn’t want to leave! The property itself is extremely safe and in a beautiful tree lined neighbourhood, close to parks, cafes and shops. Close proximity to Sandton and other Joburg attractions. Don’t stay anywhere else on your visit to Joburg.

Another wonderful stay at Leighwood Lodge. Always welcoming and kind. Great room, everything that you would need available with wonderful grounds (and a refreshing pool). The neighbourhood is perfectly located with great areas to walk or run. Couldn't recommend it higher.

A true home from home in the northern suburbs. The rooms, with pool access, are all annexed in the grounds of a charming character home in a quiet leafy street, just a short distance from Rosebank. My welcome was warm and genuine. I had a room on the first floor overlooking the beautiful gardens. Spotlessly clean and very spacious, homely, with every facility you could wish for, a fridge, even a microwave oven and lovely complimentary touches. The bed. Super comfortable with plush high quality linen, and pillows. I slept so well. A home cooked breakfast, with wide choice, cooked to order, and in the homely dining room of the main house. I cannot recommend more highly.

Disaster struck for a friend and I in Johannesburg - we both found ourselves without phone battery, in a taxi, and needing somewhere to stay. Leighwood Lodge had been recommended by a friend staying there, so we directed the taxi there and took a chance. The owner, Leigh, welcomed us in, coming through with a beautiful room that happened to be available despite us turning up unannounced . She and her partner couldn't have been more friendly or accommodating - we had lovely chats, and the place itself is a bit of a hidden oasis. There's a nice swimming pool, pretty gardens, a sweet breakfast set up and very comfy beds. Showers are large and have great pressure, there are amenities available, and you'll find plenty of wine and spirits in the fridge should you so want it :) At breakfast, I joked that I could do with a Bloody Mary. Within minutes, Leigh appeared with a tray, and all the ingredients. That's the sort of person she is, and the kind of homely experience you can expect at Leighwood Lodge. Would go back in a heartbeat. Thanks for everything!

Beautiful place and surroundings. Leigh is a most gracious Host par excellence as are her staff who were most friendly and obliging. Lovely rooms, lovely breakfast, lovely people. Don't stay anywhere else if you want to be in the Northern suburbs. Thanks Leigh!

Hosts Leigh and Alan and their staff have created an oasis in Jhb: it offers amazing comfort, warm hospitality that makes you feel right at home, and an easiness that makes everyday feel like a holiday! We loved our stay at their place, and appreciated all the thoughtful touches and extras that they provided for us and our little one. We highly recommend their accommodation, and would love to visit again.

My family spent 2 nights at the Leighwood lodge, the accommodations were beautiful. Leigh made us feel like we were family. She invited our two young girls to help make breakfast in the morning which was so fun for them. We were staying there prior to an evening flight, and she welcomed us to stay through the afternoon and let the girls swim for the day. She also helped us arrange all of our transportation to the airport. I have never felt so at home while traveling.
