Although I only stayed for one night and didn't have an opportunity to enjoy any of the other facilities - I was very impressed with the service and everything Ashdown House has to offer. It was great to use the Internet access from my room. Breakfast was good too :)

We loved our two nights at Ashdown House, at the end of a family holiday. The rooms were very comfortable, service excellent, and the breakfasts were really good. We will be returning when we are next in Johannesburg! We would definitely recommend Ashdown House.
