Saxonwold is adjacent to freeways, Gautrain and Rosebank, thus very conveniently positioned.Mobile phone signal can be a little weak as it is in many areas of South Africa. Mike and Janine are great hosts to the...

Wow, A home away from home and more. The host couple are excellent hosts, friendly, warm and accomodative of Guests' special requests. The garden is wow, the suits are homely and well furnished. The breakfast is immaculately prepared, served hot, fresh, well presented and served by a friendly-smiling face. Customer service indeed is an attitude in this establishment. Lusanda

Dear Ron Thank you so much for your wonderful review. It was a pleasure 'working' with you to organise for your party of 9.

I am also delighted that...

This was my first time staying in central Johannesburg and I was a little apprehensive having heard about crime etc (my partner however is a former Johannesburg resident so much more blasé than me!). We stayed for three nights at the end of our trip to South Africa and thoroughly enjoyed our time at Cotswold Gardens. It is very central...
