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...

I travel through Johannesburg regularly, and when I discovered Ashdown House the trips took on a new air of ease. Knowing that upon arrival I would find my home away from home, forever warm and welcoming, I fall in love with the place every time I stay (which these days is weekly)!
