After careful research, I chose the Ashford for a first visit 4 night stay on vacation in Johannesburg. The guest house was absolutely perfect. It's about a 10-15 minute walk from the Rosebank Gautrain station. I had a big suitcase and a shoulder bag and had no problem walking over to the guest house. The big obstacles would be the... More

My wife and family traveled to Johannesburg for a family wedding and we have stayed at the guesthouse for almost 3 weeks. The facility, staff and atmosphere was exceptional and we would highly recommend The Ashford to anyone seeking a comfortable, quiet, home away from home experience. Notwithstanding the fact that the rooms were extremely comfortable, the setting peaceful -... More

We had the great opportunity to stay at The Ashford for a weekend while visiting family in Johannesburg. The Ashford is a small and intimate guest house. Upon arriving you are immediately made to feel like you have arrived at a family's member's farmhouse. The design is wonderful. The bedrooms are clean and well decorated with a warm feel. There...

I would like to keep this little corner of tree-lined Parkwood a secret but The Ashford really does deserve a trumpet-blow! The whole place has the air of a small grand hotel in the country and lives up to that promise! Our rooms were spacious and comfortable - loved the under-floor heating in the bathroom - and the bedroom doors... More

The whole experience is world class. I personally liked the home away from home feeling and personal touch i received. The staff can't do enough to help. The Ashford is quiet, clean and the breakfast is perfect. It is also very secure.

From the moment you drive into the graveled driveway, to entering through the charming farmhouse type covered verandah, you will be charmed by The Ashford. The staff make you feel welcome and at home; the ambiance of the main lounge area and quaint dining room are serene and light. The rooms are beautifully appointed and spacious- just the right touches... More

I stayed here 3 nights and found it an oasis of peacefulness and liked the sound of the fountain outside. I was in Johannesburg for a workshop and usually I stay at a hotel in Rosebank but decided to stay here instead. I am glad I did, the room was spotless, shower good pressure, breakfast each morning delicious and you... More

I was in Johannesburg for a 5 day training and certification course. I needed a quiet and serene environment where I could focus on reading and preparing for my exams. From day one when I was received at the gate, I knew this was just what I needed. Courteous staff going the extra mile to ensure my stay was memorable.... More
