“Fantastic guest house”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

I stay at The Ashford pretty regularly and each and every time is excellent. The ladies who great you are a wonderful, the rooms are very comfortable and well appointed.
Breakfast is great, well stocked honesty bar and very conveniently located for those needing to be near to Rosebank.
It will remain my first choice home from home on all my trips to Jhb.

Room Tip: My favourite are the rooms out side, number 4 has nice little table on the verandah.

The whole experience is world class. I personally liked the home away from home feeling and personal touch i received. The staff can't do enough to help. The Ashford is quiet, clean and the breakfast is perfect. It is also very secure.

From the moment you drive into the graveled driveway, to entering through the charming farmhouse type covered verandah, you will be charmed by The Ashford. The staff make you feel welcome and at home; the ambiance of the main lounge area and quaint dining room are serene and light. The rooms are beautifully appointed and spacious- just the right touches from the excellent quality bed linens to the Charlotte Rhys toiletries in the bathroom. No matter what the season, they make you more than comfortable. Megan is the supreme hostess and her staff are obviously happy to work at the Ashford, which is felt immediately upon entering the guest house. Lovely antique armoires; easy to navigate DSTV and air cooling or warming units; lovely artwork and just the right touch of antiques to complement the contemporary colours and decor touches. The breakfasts are fresh and delicious and nothing is too much to ask of Megan and her staff. I had a small amount of laundry, it was quickly done, beautifully pressed; folded and placed in my armoire before I knew it, and all with a smile. Old fashioned graciousness at it's best. Great value for money- it's truly a home away from home. This leafy Joburg suburb is a perfect setting for this guest house- and all within walking distance of the Rosebank Mall and The Zone- where there's fabulous shopping and dining. Other areas for great dining and drinks are close by- 5 minutes by car or cab to Parkhurst, Parktown North and Greenside. Cannot say enough about this little gem of a place.

Room Tip: There is no pool- so couldn't rate that- each room opens with it's own french doors onto the...

I spent 8 nights here, awesome place to relax after work each day. Everything was perfect ! The rooms are very clean and tidied up every day, the breakfast is 5 star and the parking is very secure. Fast free wifi available. The guesthouse is in a very quiet area with huge trees. Underfloor heating in the bathroom.
Worth every cent and I cannot wait to return.

I stayed here 3 nights and found it an oasis of peacefulness and liked the sound of the fountain outside. I was in Johannesburg for a workshop and usually I stay at a hotel in Rosebank but decided to stay here instead. I am glad I did, the room was spotless, shower good pressure, breakfast each morning delicious and you can choose from a menu to have a cooked breakfast. It is only a five to 10 minute walk to Rosebank and the Zone or the Firs area where there are several good restaurants. I had no problems with the free wifi and would not hesitate in coming back again.

Room Tip: I had Room No 5 which only had a shower but other rooms do have baths.

I was in Johannesburg for a 5 day training and certification course. I needed a quiet and serene environment where I could focus on reading and preparing for my exams.

From day one when I was received at the gate, I knew this was just what I needed.

Courteous staff going the extra mile to ensure my stay was memorable.

I also like the togetherness of the team, they had a friday evening drink up, great for teamwork.

Absolutely loved my stay there, and yeah, I passed my exam!!!!

If ever you need somewhere to stay in Jo'berg I suggest you check if the Ashford has any room.

It is simply wonderful. I travel to Johannesburg a lot for business and initially I stayed in the usual business hotels. Great for boosting "points" but souless, dull and unispring.
I have now been coming to the Ashford for over 4 years since and it goes from strength to strength.
The reasons you should stay here;
1. The Staff, who will always greet you with a smile and make you feel welcome.
2. The service. Your clothes will be unpacked, ironed and immaculately folded and put away. Even five star hotels wont do that for you.
3. The rooms, Clean, tidy, free wifi, 28inch LCD TV with satelite tv/sports channels, Lovely bathrooms, full size fridge. Has a luxury feel to the furnishings and environment.

In short, I can't praise The Ashford highly enough

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Nestled in the quiet tree-lined suburb of Parkwood in Johannesburg, The Ashford is a fresh and sparkling addition to the bed and breakfast market. At first glimpse of The Ashford, guests are greeted by a classic, expansive patio which wraps itself generously around the entire house, creating a cool and breezy space away from the harsh Highveld sun. Central to the reception area is a beautiful atrium which spreads light throughout the guest house, all day long. The architecture, as a whole, speaks of luxury without being ostentatious, is practical and efficient without being cluttered, and offers a warm, friendly and tasteful space. The Ashford has five double rooms with bathrooms en-suite, and includes all the facilities necessary to ensure a comfortable and convenient stay. All rooms have doors which open up onto the shaded patio, and all have DSTV and tea and coffee facilities. An English breakfast is served every morning and the rich aroma of freshly ground coffee in the dining area is seldom absent. For the Worlkaholics we offer free wireless throughout. A 24-hour security patrol is in place, and parking is secure. The guest house, like The Ashford team, has a wonderful, sunny disposition about it, and we look forward to welcoming visitors from far-flung places, as well as domestic travellers who happen to find themselves in Johannesburg – whether for business or pleasure. ... more   less
