About Thatchfoord Lodge

This elegant lodge is situated in Morningside Manor, one of Sandton's secure and tranquil suburbs, overlooking the willowed banks of the Sand River with an abundance of bird life.

Thatchford Lodge is not your average B&B, but rather a haven where you can relax and feel at home when away on business, holiday or even on a short stay-over visit in Johannesburg. The furnishings, design and thatched room create a country house feeling, and with the calming sound of the river flowing by, you will forget that you are actually in the heart of the city.

Most of our eight spacious, en suite bedrooms overlook the river and the large sparkling pool, patio and shady garden, all at the disposal of our guests wishing to relax in secluded privacy. All rooms have broadband wireless Internet access, TV's and shared DStv, heaters and fans, hair dryers, tea/coffee facilities and much more. We also have air-conditioning and mini bars in selected rooms.

We are conveniently situated within minutes of Sandton City, Rivonia, Woodmead and Sunninghill as well as easy access to the N1 and M1 motorways.

                                      The serenity and it’s such a relaxing place to stay at. The water flowing by the river and birds chirping, just is so therapeutic. Enjoyed my stay at the place.

                                      Pearl, Joyce and their staff were adorable, warm, welcoming. The lodge with the garden, the pool and the river behind made us feel like in the countryside not in the heart of Sandton. Secure and calm area of Morningside Manor! The kids and I were enchanted.
