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.
