A very nice touch was the complimentary and extremely tasty Sherry in the... 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. I also opted for dinner and that... More

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

We recently had a 2 day stop in Jo'burg over our 15th anniversary and stayed at Ashdown House. The reception was great, and the staff excelled in helpfulness and hospitality. The facilities are very good and after staying there we know why it's a top 5 in Jo'burg. We will definitely be coming back. P&A

Absolutely amazing Guest House, very welcoming staff. Beautifully designed layout. Comfortable rooms. I would recommend this Guest House to everyone. Centrally located to most major places. David and Zenobia would love to thank the staff for a very lovely stay.

What a fantastic place. Friendly service, luxurious rooms, beautiful surroundings and one of the best breakfasts I've ever had. In general, B&B's and Guest Houses in South Africa are of a very high standard and they've frankly made me consider reevaluating all other reviews I've made. Anyway, if you're among the best Guest Houses in South Africa, you're among the... More

What a perfect place to unwind after an international flight. Tucked away in a quiet suburb of J'burg, AshDown House warmly welcomes you with a friendly efficient staff, tranquil surroundings and delicious food. The rooms are beautifully appointed, the grounds are immaculate and meals are of 5 star quality. You will need a car or have the staff hire you... More

I've been using Ashdown for 3 years now and have called it home away from home for almost over 120 bed nights and 120 and many more to come. Friendly, warm, inviting, refreshing, private and safe. Thanks!
