Bed and Breakfast, Accommodation, Germiston, Gauteng


What is in a name? At Lions Rest Guest House our name entails two things. Firstly, as royalty, lions need to be part of a pride and secondly, lions live a lazy lifestyle.

In a nutshell this is what guests can expect when visiting Lions Rest.  As a family owned business it is imperative that our guests feel at home and take a break from mental and physical exertion.  Total rest of body and mind is compulsory. 


Lions Rest offers you leisure accommodation with a country atmosphere in the heart of Gauteng.  Wake up to the chattering birds and sound of a cascading waterfall. 


The Guest House is separate from the main house and offers 24 luxurious en-suite bedrooms that are fully serviced and tastefully decorated. Each room has its own private entrance and is fully equipped with a television, fridge, bath towels, swimming towels and coffee and tea making facilities.

All rooms have ceiling fans for our hot summer days; electric blankets and heaters for those cold winter nights . Rooms are surrounded by a beautiful lush green tropical garden and overlook a Koi pond and the heated swimming pool.


We have a non-smoking policy in our bedrooms to provide a safe and smoke free environment to all our quests. However, the tranquil garden offers various thatched lapas to accommodate our smoking quests.  A mouth-watering breakfast is included in the tariff and served in the Hungry Lion dining room. Dinner, prepared in a true South African home cooked way daily with fresh ingredients, can be pre-booked before 12 am daily.


Lions Rest also caters for the discerning business person who prefers to be close to the hustle and bustle of the city, but wishes to stay in tranquil surroundings. Each room has a small study table and access to our wireless internet facilities.


We are ideally situated in Germiston, near the M2, N3, N17 and N12 motorways.  Whether you enjoy our hospitality for leisure or business, all major attractions are easily accessible.

We are 2 km from Rand Airport, 25 minutes away from OR Tambo Airport, close to the Wadeville and Alrode Industrial areas and the Johannesburg CBD.  We are 3km from the Herman Immelman sporting venue and various well-known casinos and shopping malls are within easy reach.


Security and privacy are of the utmost importance to us. High boundary walls with electric fencing and undercover secure parking will ensure your safety and peace of mind.


Lions Rest offers freedom from time-consuming duties, responsibilities and activities.  Come and experience a pause from your busy life, come and be part of our lion pride for as long as you wish.
