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.
Thatchfoord Lodge is not just an average B&B, but rather a haven where you can feel at home when away on business, holiday or even on a short stay over visit in Johannesburg. The furnishings, design and thatched roof create a country house feeling and with the calming sound of the Sand River flowing by, you will forget that you are actually in the heart of the city.
Most of our nine spacious, en-suite bedrooms overlook the large sparkling pool, patio and shady garden, all at the disposal of our guests wishing to relax in privacy. Our spacious and comfortably appointed en-suite double rooms, most with private entrances, lounge and study area are ideally suited to both business and leisure travelers.
