Whichever way you look at it, we are still number 1 on Tripadvisor in terms of traveler ranking. Liz at Lancaster is no 1 of 146 guesthouses in Johannesburg and no 1 of 263 B&Bs/Inns in Johannesburg. Here is part of a review from March 2024.
“Spending three weeks in a guesthouse felt like a challenge, but at Liz at Lancaster it turned out to be anything but. Liz and her exceptional staff have created a personal and caring atmosphere that is instantly welcoming. The self-catering accommodation, with its well-equipped kitchenette and private courtyard, is spacious and comfortable and the attention to detail speaks of Liz’s long experience in the hospitality industry. [There’s] the attractive pool with comfortable loungers placed in the shade offered huge relief and the birdlife attracted to the feeders in the immaculate garden added to the ambience. Great breakfasts served on the patio are an added pleasure. What’s not to like?”

april2024_2 Neighbourhood News

Craighall Park is remarkable in that it has a whole range of neighborhood eateries but yet it has retained its suburban feel without the rowdy party scene of the main drags (and weekend mayhem) in suburbs like Melville and Norwood; the parking challenges of 4th Ave Parkhurst; or the sterile bland internash-chic of enclosed malls. These eateries include family friendly; pub-vibe; fine-dining; local Italian pasta-pizza restaurants; cocktail bars; good value Chinese and Indian; and vegan/vegetarian offerings. And Liz at Lancaster at 79 Lancaster Ave, is centrally located for all these places. Check the 10 different locations which are not further than 2 km from the guesthouse.

What Our Guests Say

Liz, the hostess, was wonderful and accommodating. The rooms are cozy, with all the amenities of home. The additional heating services (warm water bottle, heater, electric blanket) were fantastic. Breakfast is also available, with a choice of alternatives.Liz at Lancaster was fabulous. The room was clean and had absolutely everything we needed for the night we were there. It was particularly nice to have a perfect cup of tea with fresh milk and a delicious homemade rusk in the morningWhat a lovely place to stay. My grandson and I had the most amazing 5 night stay there. Beautiful and fully equipped self catering unit and gorgeous garden and pool. Made to feel so at home and had a very special stay. Will be back for sure!After a few stressful weeks this was the perfect place for me to unwind and to find myself again! Luxury accommodation with everything you could wish for provided! I even had a private patio to sit and enjoy the sun! Loved my stay with Liz
