This is my second time to stay at CG first for a week and the second for almost 2 weeks. I enjoyed both stays. The place is perfect after a busy day - with clean and cosy room and very kind staff. And I enjoyed breakfast! The place and the neighborhood is quite and within walking distance to the mall...

Great location and very friendly service. There were nice small touches combined with excellent recommendations on what do. We could walk to the galleries and we took taxis to everything else that we wanted to see. Our trip ended in Jo Berg and it was a perfect ending.

Saxonwold is just out of the main hyperdrive of Rosebank, and is actually rather well placed for just about anywhere you want to go in this lovely area. Cotswold Gardens is in a quiet and very treed area, with off street parking. The room or suite you may have will probably be quiet and comfortable. Extremely good value for money.

The cotswold gardens is the most beautiful place. The room and the shower are comfortable, very clean and have all the facilities that you need. There is a beautiful relaxing garden. Janine and Michael are the most pleasant hosts!! And they have the best breakfast from all the places we've been in South Africa!

The staff at Cotswold Gardens were very friendly and made us feel at home. The Guesthouse location was very ideal: within a very quiet residential area but also within walking distance to a big shopping mall. The smiles of the staff every morning brightens your day. The breakfast is also real good and a variety. Rooms are very very neat...

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
