Just perfect. Stayed in a villa. Very large room with fabulous comfortable bed. Small eating area perfect for a delicious breakfast in room. Bathroom very large with separate free standing tub, shower, dual vanities with high end soaps etc. dinner in restaurant was great. Fabulous service, great sommelier with perfect local wine selections. Grounds are lush. In short,could not have been better.

It was not our first time at the Saxon and will for sure not be our last one. We just love the Saxon, not only because of the great history is has been part of but also because of the art work throughout the Hotel and the elegance of the interior design. We spent two days on our way to Botswanna and the service was just amazing. The crepe suzette prepared en voiture, just amazing, the superb SPA treatments, my favourite cocktail from the bar man...and many many other things, were just fantastic. Big thank to Masood from concierge, (who helped us getting our malaria tablets) the great CrepeSuzette Chef ( don´t know the name, unfortunately) and the wonderful Zandile from the SPA, she has magic hands. As said, it was not our first time and for sure will not be our last one. Congrats to the SAXON team for making this journey so wonderful

I selected the Saxon restaurant for my husband birthday based on great reviews of the food and service. I sent an email requesting the reservation which was never answered, followed by phone where next to the table reservation I asked for a birthday surprise, which I was promised - an inscription on the desert plate. Desert came without any acknowledgement and when I went to complaint, I was told it would come with the bill. The waiter serving us had not a clue but tried to do her best to solve the situation and brought a plate with inscription Happy Birthday and some piece of chocolates. Finally the bill arrived with the items listed we did not have. Although very nice food, the overall impression is bitter. For such a high priced restaurant I expect more attention to the customer's wishes and no cheatings on the bills. Never again.

The 3 of us booked 2 rooms at the Saxon hotel for a birthday celebration. On arrival we asked to take pictures at certain features (away from the public of course) that we had seen from other guests that were previously there, which was what attracted us to the Saxon at the first place. The reception manager Gustav was so rude and implied that we were not the kind of clientele that normally books at the Saxon because their usual clients do not request for such. Even his body language was so dismissive to us. I have never felt so undermind by an establishment where I have paid such a premium price of our money to. It left such a bad stint to our stay. Such an unpleasant let down experience from this hotel. Luckily Lloyd (The head Sommelier) and Brain went out of their way to make the rest of the stay tolerable. Such commendable service from them.

Wanted to highlight the super efficiency, knowledge and amazing disposition of Samantha, Dumisani and Ashwin at The Saxon Hotel in Sandown, Jhb. We needed a venue for 18 people urgently and these amazing people stepped up and over-delivered on everything, venue, food, ambience, decor and advice - am so grateful. Keep up the great work!
