Very first time in Johburg, I relied on past travellers to find the place to have a good rest, and additionnally, a nice place to stay. This was all granted by the Ashdown. From the arrival, you feel at ease in the guest house, the atmosphear is very relaxing, the rooms are quite clean and comfortable. In my mind, this... More

We stayed there for three nights mid of February 2014 and enjoyed it really very much. Nice and lovely decorated rooms, excellent service and a great and very tasty breakfast selection. On Valentin's day we found a bottle of champagne, snacks and fruits as a surprise in our room. We will definitely come again!

Our stay in Ashdown House concluded a three week tour of South Africa and I must say we saved the best until last. The room was beautiful, clean and had a private veranda overlooking the garden. Everything was wonderful apart from the staff. The staff were exceptional. I cannot thank them enough. From our complementary room upgrade, welcome drinks, super... More

We have stayed here twice now. It is so much nicer than staying in a hotel. The rooms are lovely with a wonderful bath to stretch out in. The room has a nice bottle of sherry to welcome you after your trip and tea and coffee. The fresh cookies are also something to look forward to. Glenna, the owner, has... More

As the title says, Ashdown House is a B&B with a very "homey" feel due to it's friendly staff and owner, as well as being a beautiful property. They are incredibly accommodating of guests' needs, have french press coffee set up in the rooms, and provide outstanding breakfasts and dinners (dinners on request, which are several courses and very tasty...

Stayed at Ashdown for a two-week business trip - felt extremely cosy at all times. The staff are extremely attentive and go the extra mile to make you feel more at home.

This is the place! We spent 2 nights here to relax after a 6 day safari in Kruger. The house was like everything else in Sandton/Bryanston and seemed like a compound--so it was very safe. The rooms were immaculate, modern, clean, comfortable, and after not having wi-fi for a week we were excited about the awesome connectivity here :) It... More

We opted for a suite (and were given room 10) which is the furthest away from the main house which provides a bit of privacy. Essentially, it's a very long room, with long double bed (my husband is 6 foot 6, so we know it's long!) which leads onto a sitting area. The bathroom has both bath and separate shower... More
