Liz at Lancaster Guesthouse is a great place to stay in Joburg. Liz’s attention to detail is amazing and she has really thought of everything (including flashlights and solar lights in case the electricity goes out, a jar of rusks, Q-tips and other bathroom amenities, etc). The beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of comfy pillows. It was incredibly quiet, despite being located in the city, and the location is very secure, with off-street parking. The cottage was spacious and cute. Liz has compiled an extensive resource book with comments about a lot of nearby restaurants & things to do. It is many times more comprehensive than any other I’ve seen in many years of using B&B’s. Breakfast was excellent and included delicious homemade muesli, fresh fruit, yogurts, eggs and other hot breakfast items. We were never hungry.
While Liz was away when we first arrived, John was the perfect host, showing us around, serving us breakfast and giving us ideas about the places we intended to visit. While we only had a brief moment to meet Liz in person, she was always very communicative before and during our trip, responding very quickly to any questions we had. I can’t say enough good things about Liz at Lancaster and I highly recommend it as one of the best B&B’s I have ever encountered. Thanks Liz, John, Caroline and everyone else who made our stay memorable.
