    Everything was excellent. Staff were friendly and helpful, room was comfortable, breakfast was delicious. Bottle of sherry in the room was a thoughtful gesture! The place has a welcoming, homey feel.

    Leigh and Vee were incredibly welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. I felt safe and secure on the property, the breakfasts were delicious and the room was comfortable. I will happily stay at Leighwood Lodge again.

    One of the best B&B's in JHB and my first choice. The morning I was there, there was an electricity outage in their road caused by excessive rain and lightning ... and they lent me a towel to go shower and dry my hair at the nearest gym!
