Cotswold Gardens Guest House is by far one of the coziest B&B's that I have had the pleasure of visiting. The owner, Janine Hobbs - knows how to treat and/or spoil her guests!! When we arrived at the airport we were greeted by a driver, selected by Janine, that took care of loading our luggage (which in itself was not... More

An excellent B&B by any standards, and one I wouldn't hesitate in recommending to anyone. My son and I were in Johannesburg for 6 nights. We were met at the airport by transport arranged by Janine, a most amazing host, whose welcome when we arrived was wonderful: warm yet professional, and we felt immediately at home. As we didn't hire... More

We loved staying at Cotswold Gardens on our recent two-day visit to Johannesburg -- it has all the comforts of home (and actually, more hospitality than you would find at my own home!), it's in a very quiet neighborhood but close to the amenities and nightlife in nearby Rosebank. I was traveling with a friend and we had separate accommodations,... More

This is an excellent B&B, you cannot go wrong selecting Cotswold for your stay in Johannesburg. First, Janine is an outstanding host. I have stayed in wonderful B&B's all over the world and have never come across someone so dedicated to helping their guests with things outside of the B&B. For example, I had a tour booked in Johannesburg that... More

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.

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
