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.

Liz at Lancaster News

Big excitement last year when Catherine went to Australia during the Women’s Soccer World Cup – check our latest newsletter. We had so many wonderful replies to this letter of which below was just one:
This newsletter is a gem and a sudden cry to be back in South Africa emerged from deep deep down ... It is wonderful to read those great stories, stories which counterbalance, if not annihilate, all the bad stories we hear and read everywhere. I certainly was not put off by what is being said about Joburg and it remains my favourite city in the world. Yes, the world!! I love Johannesburg. We all know bad things happen in SA but how refreshing to talk about the bonds that keep you all together in spite of the crumbling of a whole system (due to corruption).


There’s some good entertainment coming up at the Monte Casino theatres during the first six months of 2024. Traditional theatre dramas include Peter Schaffer’s 1979 classic Amadeus with Alan Committie as Salieri (8 March to 7 April) as well as Agatha Christie' courtroom thriller Witness for the Prosecution in June. Running from mid-April to mid-May is the feel-good frothy musical, Mamma Mia, directed by the inimitable Janice Honeyman. It’s sure to be a fab fun escapist frolic.
April is also bonanza rock musical month. You’ll need to book immediately for Queen: It’s a Kinda Magic along with the Rock Symphony Concert from 4-14 April at the Joburg Theatre (first time in South Africa). For the stalls in some performances there are already only single seats. Spring Awakening based on Frank Wedekind's controversial play and directed by the superb director Sylvaine Strike (The Promise, Firefly, District 6, Kiss of the SpiderWoman) will run from mid-April to early May.

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.
