Impeccable in every regard, but laid back and calm too. A rare combination. Really easy to get to anywhere in Joburg, Rosebank, Sandton, Houghton, or onto the motorway. Wonderful staff, who are just so friendly and great. The perfect stay.

This place is great - in a lovely house with large, clean, well-equipped rooms looking out over a beautiful garden. Breakfasts were delicious and our hosts were super friendly and helpful. Location is perfect, on a quiet road but very central. All in all, would definitely recommend!

I stayed for a whole week and everbody there are very friendly and very obliging. Rooms are very appointed and convenient. Breafast also fine. To be recommended because I will come back - not only for business also for private staying because I liked that it is a "quiet" place to recover.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cotswold Gardens in Saxonwold Johannesburg is a 4 Star guesthouse offering peace, tranquility and the very best in personal attention.Our rooms are clean and comfortable with ensuite bathrooms. The house is warm and inviting in winter and in summer, relaxing in the garden to the sounds of many different species of birdlife brings joy to many of our guests. We are great art lovers and this can be seen by the many examples of artwork displayed in all of the rooms. We offer a full English breakfast which our guests have always raved about. Our two self-catering suites are in great demand. They are fully equipped and perfect for long stays. They are perfect for a single person or a couple. Our location is without a doubt one of our main attractions. ... more   less
