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?


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.

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!.
