PICK OF THE MONTH: JULY

I’m a bit sad that the 2019 Turbine Art Fair has relocated as I loved Turbine Hall and that part of town, but the event had grown so much that the stalls and traffic movement had become a bit crowded. The new venue GIBS (in Illovo) is a mere 3km from Liz at Lancaster and has been a very nice venue for the Aspire Art Auctions as well as for the Gauteng Ceramic Exhibition.

There will be an extensive public programme which will include performance art, music, screenings and masterclasses, together with/ alongside a children’s programme and a talks and walkabout series. The RMB Turbine Art Fair takes place at 10 Fricker Road from 12th to 14th July with a preview on 11th July.

NEIGHBOURHOOD NEWS: JULY

I am relying on feedback from guests here as I haven’t been myself yet. The Portuguese restaurant 1920 in Hutton Court Jan Smuts Ave is a mere 2km from Liz at Lancaster and has come highly recommended by several guests. They have said it’s great value for money and the food is excellent.

Husband and wife team Manny and Paula produce wonderful espetadas, Madeiran fejoadas (pork, beef, chourico and bean stew) , porco amêijoa (pork and clam casserole), and Mozambiquan prawns. And lots more traditional Madeiran deliciousness. All right for the cold winter evenings.

One of the best guesthouses I have ever encountered

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.
Liz at Lancaster TripAdvisor Guest Review 22 April 2018

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.
