Absolutely one of the best hotels I have stayed in. Rooms in the Villas are spacious and very comfortable. The grounds are amazing, you forget you are in a built up city! Breakfasts and dinners in Quno were first class. The service and attention to detail were continuous throughout my 4 days here....

This place has to rank amongst my top 10 in the world. Amazing architecture, attention to detail and excellent service. This hotel hides you from the hustle and bustle of Johannesburg. We spend 3 nights alway from the kids. The chef catered for our "favourites" and it was delicious. The spa was incredible, rejuvenating stay

Unoriginal review title aside, it really was an amazing experience, I've stayed in several five star hotels around the world and have to say the Saxon has been one of the best. The service was amazing, with the staff being responsive and immensely helpful. The food was also excellent, though we really only ever had breakfast. One of the outstanding...

If price is not an issue you need to stay here. Everything about The Saxon is faultless, from the enormous rooms (very reminiscent of the Oberoi in Mauritius) to the wonderful food in the restaurant. It's a beautiful property and you feel a million miles from the hustle and bustle of Johannesburg at all times. Security on the gate extremely...

All I can say was that my experience at the Saxon top to tail was extraordinary!
