At The Lilypad the atmosphere is relaxed without missing attention to detail. It is set amidst beautiful gardens and carries an Afro-Chic style that is unique to Southern Africa. At The Lilypad you will feel as though you are out in the country when in fact you are only minutes away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Our aim is to ensure that your stay with us is a pleasant one and will endeavour to meet your every need.


The Lilypad is situated in Edenvale, only 10 minutes from Johannesburg International Airport and the gateway to all the main business centres in Gauteng. Whether you are in town on business, holiday or require in-transit accommodation we are well positioned to cater to all your needs.

Edenvale was named after John Eden, the part owner of the original farm called Rietfontein. It came into being as a town after the Anglo Boer war, when stands that had been demarcated and surveyed were sold to the Cornish miners employed at Rietfontein mine. The population increased when the nearby farms of Modderfontein and Klipfontein were sold to build a dynamite factory and workers for this factory were brought in from Austria, Germany and Italy.

Miners' strikes, which had affected all the mines, also had economic consequences for Edenvale. Striking miners were arrested and imprisoned, leading to much hardship amongst the miners' families. This in turn affected the shops and businesses and many suffered losses. This tragic time of unrest was aggravated further by the closure of Rietfontein mine.

Edenvale continued as a rural village until the 1930's when electricity and water became more available, spawning an increase in industrial activity.

After the 1995 local government elections, Edenvale, Modderfontein, Tembisa West, Phomolong, Mayibuye, Klipfontein View, Chloorkop and Rabie Ridge extensions were amalgamated

The name of the entire area then became Lethabong, which means "place of happiness," a place where people could live in a spirit of understanding, goodwill and co-operation. Today Edenvale forms a part of Ekhuruleni which is made up of all the suburbs east of Johannesburg.
