Interaction with guests
In a nutshell – around when you need us and but left on your own should you prefer On arrival, guests are welcomed either by Liz or a staff member and shown around at check-in. There is always a staff member on-site & Liz is in the office for much of the day. You can have complete privacy and independence if you’d prefer (there are even intercoms from the unit to staff and management) but if you want insights and low-down on this fast-paced ever-changing city of Joburg, you’ve come to the right place. Liz has lived in Joburg all her life and as an art historian/heritage & cultural tourism lecturer, has done extensive research on Joburg’s history, heritage and art scene. So there’s always loads of inside info on this exciting gritty city. Tours are arranged with small independent operators. Tagala who works at Liz At Lancaster offers on-site transport at very reasonable rates. We’ll book restaurants, theatres – basically we go the extra mile (see our award and recommendations under ‘Other things to Note’)
