Arrived for our first time in South Africa and decided to stay at the Ashdown House. We chose the ashdown house because it was close to the Lion Park but we really found out it was a slice of heaven to adapt to South African life. Birds chirping, picturesque courtyard, and the most amazing fantastic hostess, Lasedi, who arranged our...

Really enjoyed my time at Ashdown... Cannot recommend it more. Wonderful staff, delicious breakfast, and lovely accommodations. Highly recommended! I would really recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the area as it was safe accommodation close to both Sandton and downtown Joburg. Thank you for your hosting!

I was traveling with my wife, daughter and son-in-law. So I asked them to independently rate each hotel and restaurant we visited in SA. We all agreed that Ashdown is a hands-down 5 stars. Such a warm, wonderful staff!. My wife and I arrived late at night from the U.S. and we pleased to have been given wonderfully fresh tuna...

We were welcomed with fresh fruits a bottle of champagne and an awesome big bath with bath salts and decorated inside with ferns. A very nice touch was the complimentary and extremely tasty Sherry in the...

We recently had a four-day stay in Joburg, and Ashdown House was recommended to us. We now know why. The estate is just lovely, and the room (#9) was large, beautiful, and very well appointed. The most notable feature, however, is the staff. They are delightful - warm, friendly, and willing to go out of their way to make a...

We recently had a 2 day stop in Jo'burg over our 15th anniversary and stayed at Ashdown House. The reception was great, and the staff excelled in helpfulness and hospitality. The facilities are very good and after staying there we know why it's a top 5 in Jo'burg. We will definitely be coming back. P&A

What a fantastic place. Friendly service, luxurious rooms, beautiful surroundings and one of the best breakfasts I've ever had. In general, B&B's and Guest Houses in South Africa are of a very high standard and they've frankly made me consider reevaluating all other reviews I've made. Anyway, if you're among the best Guest Houses in South Africa, you're among the...
