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!

Spent two nights at this property in June 2015. While our taxi driver had a difficult time locating it, once found, we were very pleased. It was early evening when we checked in and I noticed our suite had only one bed vs. the two as requested and confirmed. We were graciously offered the suite next door for no additional... More

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 recently stayed in Ashdown House for more than a week. First I liked the way they welcomed me and upgraded me to a suite. 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

I loved my two night stay at Ashdown. As you would expect from such a fine establishment the staff were helpful and charming. The rooms are large and beautifully appointed, too. On the second evening I phoned the reception and asked for nearby restaurant recommendations. in addition to mentioning some places, the option was also put to me to have... 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.
