It's in a safe residential area with inside parking - and just a few blocks away from the Rosebank Mall and the Gautrain. Since I was on my own in a strange city, this was all very useful. I really enjoyed the generous space of...

This was our second stay. It's perfectly located in the heart of leafy Johannesburg. The gardens are idyllic, the rooms luxurious and homely, filled with creative and quirky art. The breakfasts are delicious. Service is attentive and personal. Nothing is too much trouble. Highly recommended.

Very nice, either for holiday or short term. Close to Gautrain and convenient. Breakfast was very good and the place is immaculate. I stayed for 4 weeks and was very comfortable. I had to change rooms so I had the best of 2 different rooms.

They will make suggestions for outings and the house is conveniently located near Rosebank Mall where there are lots of cafes, restaurants and shops.

Janine and her staff really go the extra mile to make sure your stay goes well. The grounds are so beautiful and the accommodations great. Breakfast was always a treat, especially when you ate outside with the birds and flowers. Your stay in Joburg will be so much better when you stay here. Would love to go back.

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
