Enjoyed my stay at Burkleigh. I appreciate that Victoria was courteous enough to upgrade our rooms due to the event that was being hosted during my stay. Amazing service and facilities. My friends and I particularly enjoyed the breakfast and ambiance. I highly recommend it.

We had an engagement party at Burkleigh House and what a beautiful place it is! I can only describe the gardens as WOW! You would not think you are in the middle of Randburg, that's how beautifully serene and picturesque the place is. The service from the moment we enquired to the date of our event was superb - very responsive, professional and friendly. Virginia, Patricia and the team worked with our event planners/venue decorators to ensure everything was perfect on the day. The food was superb and the portions were quite generous. Businesses often take time to refund the breakage deposit. but that was not the case with Burkleigh, they refunded me without any hassles or trying to find reasons not to refund me - which I highly appreciate as it demonstrates an ethical business practice! Thank you Burkleigh for making our day so memorable!

We were looking for a quiet place to spend a few days recovering from jet lag before heading off on safari and Burkleigh House far exceeded our expectations. The bridal suite is elegant and comfortable, with a soaking tub and luxurious bed. The garden and grounds are so lush that we decided to have a full day doing nothing but staying on-site and enjoying the nature, including a family of very fluffy chickens and a papa rooster. There was an engagement party happening the second day we were there and it was very fun to see the beautiful table settings and the garden party set up. Estelle is an amazing hostess, breakfasts were delicious and huge, and the owner, Patricia seems to love what she is doing. I feel so lucky to have discovered this gem.

The place, people, food and service was all top tier. I'm more than happy that I chose them for my first solo trip, because now I'm motivated more than ever to take more solo trips and explore more places. They sure did set the bar high. Thank you!

I stayed at Burkleigh House for the first time for 3 nights, was in JHB for a business trip. I was very comfortable, and the guesthouse had everything I needed. I always require a refrigerator and microwave in my room which they provided for. Although the area the houses looked a bit delapidated around the Guesthouse, when driving into the driveway, it was like driving into a haven. Will definitley book there again.
