This is the place! We spent 2 nights here to relax after a 6 day safari in Kruger. The house was like everything else in Sandton/Bryanston and seemed like a compound--so it was very safe. The rooms were immaculate, modern, clean, comfortable, and after not having wi-fi for a week we were excited about the awesome connectivity here :) It was a very pleasant and quiet stay and Chantal was very helpful in arranging transfers, day trips, and helping with any questions we had. The breakfast options were great and the food was very good.
The grounds were also very clean and the courtyard was beautiful. The pool looked delightful, but it was a tad cool when we stayed so we didn't partake. The the outdoor seating/bar/clubhouse is also very nice.
If you need a stopover before or after safari, or heading elsewhere in South Africa, I couldn't recommend a better place to stay than Ashdown House.
