Included in Frommer’s 2012 SA edition under Hyde Park and surrounds, Liz at Lancaster appears in the ‘moderate’ price category below Southern Sun Hotel Hyde Park. The moderate category seems a fairly elastic one as the rates for Southern Sun Hotel are shown on the range from R1100 to 3,700 whereas Liz at Lancaster’s are shown from R700 – R900. Ce la vie – the write-up on Liz at Lancaster is very positive and does make special mention of the excellent value for money:
Located a short distance from Hyde Park mall (10 min. to Rosebank malls), this combines exceptional value with hands-on personal attention and great amenities. Liz offers the most comprehensive in-room information we’ve ever seen – beyond what to do and where to eat, her attention to detail is extreme: she even tunes the radios in every room to preselected stations, [well not quite but nice idea !!] leaving an explanation of what to do and who the stations appeal to. [This we do.] She also has an in-house driver which takes an enormous stress out of transfers (R30 to Parkhurst restaurants; R45 to Rosebank). Most rooms include a fully equipped kitchenette and dining table, enclosed private courtyard. alomg with every other possible amenity. Corner Cafe is 2 blocks away.
