Johannesburg, South Africa
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Large open plan lounge/kitchen come bedroom with loads of natural light. Beautifully appointed. Comfortable modern four poster bed. Brought in extra single bed for my 17 year old son on the one night. Breakfast was a fresh fruit salad with muesli and yoghurt plus eggs and bacon to order. Very respectable poached eggs.

Big, comfortable and elegant rooms, nestled in a beautiful garden! We only stayed one night, but would definitely stay for a longer period next time when in Pietermaritzburg. Staff were friendly and helpful. Thank you!

Lexden is probably the best guesthouse that we visit. We literally travel the whole country and Lexden is most certainly our favourite stay. Everything is just perfect and the staff very friendly and professional

I've been staying at the Lexden fairly regularly since May for several nights at a time. Karrin is an excellent host and the rooms are really comfortable and tastefully decorated. It really feels like a home away from home when I'm in Pietermaritzburg.

I was blown by how lovely, welcoming and peaceful my stay was at the Lexden. I was on business from abroad and it felt like I was coming back to an oasis after long days of meetings. Beyond the gorgeous room and surroundings, every detail was thought of from the french press and fresh milk to the European plug adapter...

It was a business trip, with no much time for relax, but it has been a nice experience. Really well located and communicated (which is good if you have to move around for meetings). Helpful stuff. Good breakfast
