Ashdown House is beautiful and the perfect place to stay. The room was perfect and the breakfast was delicious. I loved the 'honesty' bar. The bed and breakfast is centrally located...only 15 minutes from Sandton.

Great personalised welcome and service. There is a relaxing lounge with an honesty bar overlooking a quiet garden full of wonderful birds. Well finished and equipped bedroom and bathroom with everything you need for a short stay.

We arrived in JHB and checked into the Guesthouse we booked only to be horrified. The next morning we google searched for a new guesthouse and asked to view Ashdown before making the booking. They welcomed us with open arms and made us feel so at home. We travel a lot and having a little 3 month old baby does... More

Arrived for our first time in South Africa and decided to stay at the Ashdown House. We chose the ashdown house because it was close to the Lion Park but we really found out it was a slice of heaven to adapt to South African life. Birds chirping, picturesque courtyard, and the most amazing fantastic hostess, Lasedi, who arranged our... More

Really enjoyed my time at Ashdown... Cannot recommend it more. Wonderful staff, delicious breakfast, and lovely accommodations. Highly recommended! I would really recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the area as it was safe accommodation close to both Sandton and downtown Joburg. Thank you for your hosting!

I was traveling with my wife, daughter and son-in-law. So I asked them to independently rate each hotel and restaurant we visited in SA. We all agreed that Ashdown is a hands-down 5 stars. Such a warm, wonderful staff!. My wife and I arrived late at night from the U.S. and we pleased to have been given wonderfully fresh tuna... More

I also loved the ambience, it is absolutely apt for those coming from busy day life and wanted to relax in absolutely quiet environment which Ashdown House provides.

We recently had a four-day stay in Joburg, and Ashdown House was recommended to us. We now know why. The estate is just lovely, and the room (#9) was large, beautiful, and very well appointed. The most notable feature, however, is the staff. They are delightful - warm, friendly, and willing to go out of their way to make a... More
