I spent 6 nights of pure bliss. Cotswold Garden Guest House is situated in a quiet suburb of Saxonwold. It is strategically located, giving you easy access to all major venues in Johannesburg. I stayed in a beautiful room that looked out into a well manicured garden and soothing pond of fish. The room had floor and wall heating which... More

Set in a leafy suburban region of Northern Johannesburg Cotswold Gardens is complete as the name infers. Behind the perimeter walling white washed masonry buildings complete with terra cotta roof tiles set within ample yet comfortable gardens the guest house is at once a retreat and a homely place to stay. The interior of the house reflects the age and... More

We recently stayed a second time at this great guest house after our first visit last year. Once again, we found everything to be delightful, especially the warm hospitality of host Janine Hobbs. The rooms are comfortable, the staff professional and friendly, the grounds gorgeous and the breakfast delicious. We happily give Cotswold Gardens Guest House our strongest recommendation.

I recently spent almost 2 weeks at CG and had an extremely comfortable stay there. It's in a safe residential area with inside parking - and just a few blocks away from the Rosebank Mall and the Gautrain. Since I was on my own in a strange city, this was all very useful. I really enjoyed the generous space of... More

This was our second stay. It's perfectly located in the heart of leafy Johannesburg. The gardens are idyllic, the rooms luxurious and homely, filled with creative and quirky art. The breakfasts are delicious. Service is attentive and personal. Nothing is too much trouble. Highly recommended.

Very nice, either for holiday or short term. Close to Gautrain and convenient. Breakfast was very good and the place is immaculate. I stayed for 4 weeks and was very comfortable. I had to change rooms so I had the best of 2 different rooms.

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
