Good hotel with nice rooms, a most nice garden with outdoor pool, located on a silent road in walking distance from Rosenbank. Nice people, the breakfasts are in top. It was good how silent there was, waking up to the sound of the birds in the garden; I will try and get back there.

Somehow, Janine and her (smiling) crew have made a little eden in bustling Rosebank. The garden soothes the soul and the rooms speak quietly of luxury and consideration and gracious South African hospitality. All you need is at hand - I loved the scent of the shower gel! Access to anywhere is easy, it took me minutes in mid-morning to... More

A lovely guest house to stay in. Great atmosphere and the staff were welcoming, friendly and kind. Definitely going back ☺. The swimming pool is a great place to relax with deck chairs around the edge and the pool is just right to take a dip and cool down.

A great referral from a friend took me to Cotswold Gardens Guest House. Mike and Jeanine Hobbs welcomed me into their home and made my stay there a complete pleasure. Nothing appears to be too much trouble for them. They clearly love people as they've been doing this for many years. My room was spacious, plenty of cupboard space, all... More

A comfortable, well-equipped place to stay where the hosts are caring and hot breakfast is served daily! The garden is lovely. I found delicious home made cookies everyday in my room. The hosts were most helpful in attending to whatever I needed and in making arrangements for transport and sightseeing. I heard other guests say that this is the best... More
