5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2011

The rooms and en suite bathrooms are extremely well appointed and the beds comfortable. The breakfast menu is unusually extensive and the quality and service were flawless. Our stay was brief but I would have no hesitation in recommending Ashdown House to friends and colleagues alike.

Gracious hospitality in a peaceful secure community of one of Johannesburg’s wealthier parts of this huge city. Thanks to Greenwood Guides for preselecting this gem. Ashdown house is a classic: with silk carpets, a leathered lounge and spacious perfectly appointed rooms - pure comfort. Their breakfast was amazing with a generous and extensive menu. As a Canadian I was most impressed with their bacon! Sue took great care of my entire family and went above and beyond in her service, kindness and knowledge of the area. Sue has years of experience in the industry and can pretty much solve any challenge that comes her way. We will be forever in her debt.

We stayed at Ashdown House at the start and end of our four week trip to Africa. It was lovely - amazing breakfasts; very friendly staff and very comfortable rooms - good security. We had dinner and a braai there on our last night. Very memorable and highly recommend for anyone travelling to Johannesburg.

This guesthouse has been amazing, the rooms are clean, comfortable and have everything that you need in them. The bathrooms, well I could have spent all day in there.
Glynis, the owner, was helpful in suggestions on what to do in the area and this was the perfect ending to our 3 week holiday. I cannot wait to come again.....

Everything about this establishment was first class, the standard and quality of the room was fantastic; far better than the "bog standard" hotel room, a lot of thought given to every detail.All the staff were friendly and welcoming. Glynis is a fantastic host and nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely recommend Ashdown House and hope to stay there again.

This has got to be the best place to stay on business in Jhb/Sandton.

Rooms are awesome, staff are super helpful and professional. Breakfast made to order in the mornings and great facilities for a swim/relaxation outside after work.

Cannot recommend it more highly - 10 stars!
