Here you will experience comfort, hospitability, friendliness, beauty, calm and your warm hosts and their staff, for whom nothing seems to be too much to ask. The rooms are inviting and everything is exceptionally clean and inviting. The garden which includes a swimming pool is tranquil and beautifully kept and is filled with the sounds of birds and the colours... More

I can't begin to describe how much I loved this place, the great reviews that led me to Cotswold gardens were on point. The cleanliness, friendly staff, serene location, lovely breakfast, beautiful gardens.... there's this way the carpet in my room would warm up deliciously and ease off the winter cold. And there are novels/magazines too... I think it's my... More

I would definitely recommend Cotswold Gardens Guest House - conveniently situated in a quiet area near Killarney and Rosebank shopping centres and other attractions. The en-suite room was clean, spacious and very comfortable, breakfast was excellent. The beautiful house is surrounded by well-kept gardens with a swimming pool. Thank you Janine for personally making me feel welcome, and your excellent... More

I have stayed here often and have always received warm and friendly service. I have to travel but don't like being away from home - this home from home in JHB soothes the pain. Janine and Mike have always been very accommodating if I wanted to invite a colleague for a business meeting breakfast, or check in earlier and work... More

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
