The best property in the high-end catagory! The check-in was seamless and it seemed as everybody new us by name when we got to the front door. The rooms are spacious onto a private patio and beautifull garden. The attention to detail was amazing - everything you could possibly need as a business traveler was provided for - even a... More

Great hotel. The rooms are amazing and they are very nice with children, helping us to found the best activities to do with two young little girls (3 and 5 years old). It was our first hotel of our 3 weeks in South Africa and what a great start!

This property is exactly what you expect in the high end category. I would give it a seven star rating in every category. The check-in is seamless no standing or waiting. You are escorted to your room where everything is explained and your credit card is swiped by a hand held reader in your room. A chilled bottle of Champagne,... More

From the moment we stepped into the lobby of The Saxon Hotel we were treated like royalty. Unfortunately, we were only there for one night. The room was spectacular-the attention to detail was amazing-everything you could possibly need was there for you, including the use of a laptop computer. The food was great as well. The only negative was that... More

The Saxon Hotel is not to be missed for visitors to Jo-burg. The room was one of the nicest rooms I have had in any hotel in the world. The grounds are magnificent. The fitness center well equipped. The breakfast buffet was more than ample; however, we had dinner in the restaurant one evening and found the quality of the... More

My call to the spa the day before should have warned me off. After several tries (where the phone went unanswered forever over several tries), I managed to get a hold of a receptionist. Having never been to the Saxon Spa before, I asked her to make a recommendation on a treatment (price was not an object). To this, she... More

We actually stayed in one of Saxon's Villas. There were a group of us that were touring through A & K heading out for a safari. The service at this hotel was above and beyond.

We were invited to a 50th Birthday at The Saxon during June 2011. I was looking forward to the experience as I had heard such positive comments about the hotel. However, I was bitterly disappointed - what a pity, as I was perusing the venue for a client wedding later in the year. On arrival when we asked where the... More

Just wanted to share that the High Tea and Brunch was one of the best in terms of quality, service, cleanliness and ambiance that we have been for - Highly recommended. The price of these events are fairly reasonable too (R190pp for High Tea and R400 pp for brunch). The brunch selection was amazing.
