The rooms are beautifully appointed, the grounds are immaculate and meals are of 5 star quality. You will need a car or have the staff hire you...

I've been using Ashdown for 3 years now and have called it home away from home for almost over 120 bed nights and 120 and many more to come. Friendly, warm, inviting, refreshing, private and safe. Thanks!

Beautiful setting, excellent food, friendly staff! This is in a wealthier suburb, so you'll need a car or ride of some kind. Beds are definitely on the firm side and water pressure is a little low, but those are minor issues compared with the advantages.

Ashdown was a great final stop before heading back to the states. The property is full of character with garden views, patio seating, fruit trees, outdoor lounge with bar, TV, fire pit.

We checked in to this absurdly photogenic B&B after our wildlife week at Kruger. Nicolene made us feel comfortable right away with her warm smile, refreshingly delicious welcome drinks and a room upgrade (yay!). When evening fell, Nicolene had organised a romantic candlelight dinner for two among the art-filled walls of Ashdown's dining area. Although we did request a dinner...
