The Saxon is sheer heaven. This is a much overdue review. I stayed at The Saxon in November 2008 with my mother and then four year old daughter. My mother had broken her foot badly and was bedridden in the sitting room of one of The Saxon's sumptuous suites. This is a place where you want to be bedridden. The... More

Only complaint was that we only spent 2 days here at the end of our Christmas break in South Africa, everthing else was absolutely perfect. Nothing is too much effort for the staff and all facilities and the rooms are top spec. I previously did not stay here as I thought it may be too in the centre of the... More

We stayed in Saxon for three nights and they were the best days we've had in a long time! Every little detail was covered by their amazing staff and they ensured our stay was superb.

I recently spent a day at the Saxon Spa & Studio at the Saxon Boutique Hotel in Johannesburg. What a wonderful experience! Although the Saxon is about 15 years old, its decor and ambience has not lost its clout at all. It is an oasis in the midst of Johannesburg suburbs, tranquil, quiet and totally luxurious. Our every whim was... More

Sorry, this is a review for the restaurant brunch which is held on Sundays between 11am and 2pm. I took the tribe (four adults) there this weekend just gone (27th November).
