Good hotel with nice rooms, a most nice garden with outdoor pool, located on a silent road in walking distance from Rosenbank. Nice people, the breakfasts are in top. It was good how silent there was, waking up to the sound of the birds in the garden; I will try and get back there.

Somehow, Janine and her (smiling) crew have made a little eden in bustling Rosebank. The garden soothes the soul and the rooms speak quietly of luxury and consideration and gracious South African hospitality. All you need is at hand - I loved the scent of the shower gel!

A lovely guest house to stay in. Great atmosphere and the staff were welcoming, friendly and kind. Definitely going back ☺. The swimming pool is a great place to relax with deck chairs around the edge and the pool is just right to take a dip and cool down.

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
