The large foam pillows were great for looking at but poor for sleeping on; carpeting was old and soiled, housekeeping never replaced the one small soap provided for bath, shower & wash basin, nor the one small shampoo (but bath & shower were bot quite fine and plenty of hot water and flow). Eventually we asked the night guard who...

I stayed at the Lourie Lodge for 3 nights in early October 2016 while on business. Apart from the surprise that a shuttle from airport to Lodge at R600 is merely a local taxi, all went fantastically well after that. The room is comfy, well decorated, not over the top or edges, the bathroom is also beautiful (Tap installed wrong,...

Stayed here during three visits to Jo'burg - consistently tranquil, comfortable, well appointed rooms, particularly those opening into the lovely garden with small swimming pool, and secure. Decent breakfast served by friendly staff.

The Setting is nice. The Bedrooms were fine. Spacious bathrooms. Well stocked honesty bar. friendly staff. Shocking service due to one person to cook , wait tables and double as checkout clerk. Had to wait 45 minutes to place breakfast orders as the poor cook had to serve the customers, cook the food and man the office. Mistreated staff if...

Lourie Lodge is definitely a hidden Gem. I travelled to Johannesburg and stayed here for a few nights. I had a fantastic room with a private wooden deck and a lovely view of the garden. The room was beautifully decorated and very clean. It had everything that I needed. The lodge environment is relaxing and the common areas are spacious...

Stayed here a few weeks ago. This guest house is nothing like the web site. Everything is old, including a tennis court that looks as if it's been left to rot for years and years. Breakfast is the lowest point. It's in a dark little room and consists of cereals that are stale, tinned fruit, synthetic juices and a toaster...

Place looks inviting and then you enter. Then it is the one disappointment upon another.Room not cleaned properly webbing hanging from light fittings. When power fails no gas to cook breakfast.

I stayed at the lodge 5 years ago when I was attending a wedding. When I needed to visit Johannesburg with a colleague from Italy I decided to try the lodge rather than a busy hotel. Our 5 day stay was fantastic and the relaxed environment was just what we needed at the end of a busy day on the...
