Over the last three years we have tried to absorb rising costs as much as possible with no increases in accommodation rates. However, our electricity costs during the winter months have now become exorbitant and during June, July and August our electricity bill doubles. We might add a R30 a day surcharge for these months. But as always will be as reasonable and fair as possible as all our repeat guests know.

FULL WATER SECURITY AT LIZ AT LANCASTER. We are fully off the municipal water supply with 2 X 1000 L tanks which are supplied by borehole and rainwater. It has been a long, expensive, and complicated process with a big learning curve for us. We now have a filtration system which could set us up in a secondary business of bottled water. Filters for sedimentation, for odour and colour, for bacteria, for Ph balance so pipes don’t corrode, water softener .. you name it we have it. So with solar and gas back-up for all geysers we are set to take on any municipal glitches.


Craighall Park has become a veritable foodie spot with several excellent restaurants in the area close to Liz at Lancaster, all of which have very accessible parking (no jostling for oversubscribed street parking). The latest is Oregano which has come to a great arrangement with that legend of watering-holes, Giles. Oregano uses Giles’ kitchen for daytime meals and then Giles takes over in the evenings. Sharon van Tonder has a lifetime of experience in good food and Oregano is no exception. And her daughter makes a mean sourdough bread.

The best guesthouse I have been to...

It is hard to describe just how good Liz at Lancaster really is. Everything from start to finish was just brilliant. Booking was straight forward and easy. Follow up contact from Liz was swift and spot on. The location is ideal and the area safe and beautifully leafy and quiet. The property itself is beautiful with a well-kept garden and everything nicely presented. Everyone was very welcoming, helpful and friendly and this was something that really made the stay great. The room was clean, tidy, airy and had a lovely little patio area outside for when the weather was nice. If you are planning to stay in Johannesburg then this guest house really is the only one you need to know about. 11/10!.
Liz at Lancaster TripAdvisor Guest Review Feb 2022

Liz at Lancaster offers comfortable lodge accommodation in Johannesburg and is a haven of peace, comfort and convenience to tourists over-nighting before a safari, solo travellers, families with children, medical patients recuperating, business travellers and consultants staying for extended periods. Many delegates attending conferences at Rosebank Hotels choose not to stay in Rosebank hotel accommodation but rather at nearby Rosebank guesthouses such as Liz at Lancaster.
