The lodge is situated in Midrand, which is not necessarily a very quiet place however Randjiesfontein is fenced and entrance to the area is through a security gate. Randjiesfontein is where By Bush Telegraph lodge is, which means after a long day of business, shopping at Mall

Room Tip: Go for the main bedrooms at the top, they all have tv's in the room.

Clean and comfortable. Very friendly and helpful staff team. Breakfast excellent. Great being able to have a drink at the end of the day by the little pub. Rates are good value for money. Thanks for a good experience.

This was such a great experience.

I would recommend it to anyone. If you ever need somewhere to stay in the Midrand area - this is definitely a place worth trying.

The hosts are very friendly and their prices are very reasonable.

We spent six nights in By Bush Telegraph, while staying close to family in Ranjeisfontein.

The lodge has interesting architecture in the style of a mediterranean or Portugese home - with elements of Gaudi-style features (wavy courtyard pavings and attractive curves and blends). The rooms are in similar style, with very high ceilings.

The lodge is set in a secure location inside this beautiful upscale gated estate, on the gentle hills midway between Johannesburg and Pretoria. It is well positioned for road travel in Gauteng and only a few minutes away from the Gauteng train station at Midrand, such that it is easily reached from Oliver Tambo International Airport.

There is a pleasant swimming pool within attractive gardens. We used the lodge as a B&B and enjoyed well prepared full breakfasts. Good value and well run by owners Angela and Antal.

Room Tip: All looked good

My husband, two young boys and I stayed in the new family suite. We were attending a Christening and were lucky to find this good value for money guest house, something I've found very difficult in South Africa. It really ticks all the boxes: clean, comfortable, restful, good facilities, large sparkling pool to do laps as well as play with kids, helpful yet non intrusive service. The design is quirky, inspired by a holiday in Greece.
