Wow, A home away from home and more. The host couple are excellent hosts, friendly, warm and accomodative of Guests' special requests. The garden is wow, the suits are homely and well furnished. The breakfast is immaculately prepared, served hot, fresh, well presented and served by a friendly-smiling face. Customer service indeed is an attitude in this establishment. Lusanda

We stayed at Cotswold Gardens for two nights, just before embarking on our safari. We had never been to Johannesburg before, and we were very fortunate to find such a lovely place to stay. It is in a convenient location. The rooms were very nice, and very comfortable. The garden and pool were very peaceful areas. All in all, it...

Dear Ron Thank you so much for your wonderful review. It was a pleasure 'working' with you to organise for your party of 9.

This was my first time staying in central Johannesburg and I was a little apprehensive having heard about crime etc (my partner however is a former Johannesburg resident so much more blasé than me!). We stayed for three nights at the end of our trip to South Africa and thoroughly enjoyed our time at Cotswold Gardens. It is very central...

Started our safari trip by spending a couple of days in Johannesburg. We could not have asked for anything nicer or more welcoming than Cotswold Gardens. Beautifully maintained, lovely neighborhood, comfortable rooms. And Janine and Michael went far out of their way to make our visit memorable.

Stayed here with my sister when our travel plans coincided for a couple of days. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Johannesburg. Perfect location, walking distance to Rosebank Mall. Owners are very knowledgeable about the area and very helpful for booking tours, taxis, and really anything you could need. They connected us to an art...

What a lovely central location! This was a business trip and I have recently been trying out various B&B's as I do not like hotels. This is close to business, malls, restaurants, gyms etc. but it still feels like a lovely garden retreat. Excellent service & breakfasts, friendly staff.

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
