I came on holiday, and can't imagine a lovelier, more peaceful and comfortable place to rest after a day of sightseeing. Rooms are quiet and incredibly spacious, with lots of windows and fine touches. Breakfast overlooking the beautiful garden is fresh and delicious. Janine and her staff Mathias and Alex are kind and hospitable, always smiling. I walked around a... More

I travel to Johannesburg on business fairly often and this is where I stay as it feels like my home. Janine and her staff Mathias and now Alex are so friendly and accommodating with requests. Peaceful and quiet and the swimming pool is a haven in the hot summer months. Great breakfasts, I love the way they do their mushrooms!

Thank you Annine for such a lovely review. I was so thrilled that you had written one after only staying here for one night. I am also pleased we could help you when you were plunged into darkness during these power outages. All the very best and I hope this doesn't happen again. More

My wife and I were fortunate enough to stay in this oasis recently. Mike and Janine were exceptional, friendly and professional, and their attention to detail is everywhere. The property is perfectly situated close to major shops, freeways and yet the overriding feeling is of peace, tranquillity and serenity. Faultless is a moniker that is not often given but in...

I had the pleasure of staying at Cotswold Gardens Guest House which is close to the Rosebank Mall, yet beautifully set in a wooded suburb within walking distance. The owners are a tremendous couple who, together with their staff were most helpful and made my stay at their lovely place even better than I had ever hoped for. A wonderful... More

It was my first visit in Cotswold Garden and I really enjoyed it. It is quiet, clean, there are nice rooms and a beautiful garden with a small swimming pool and a Braii. It is close to the new Rosebank mall that you can get walking safely. I highly recommend to stay at this address.
