The food , presentation and ambiance of this hotel is in its own league. They have this amazing selection of food and wines. It is also the playground of the well heeld Gautengers. It is a great place to a brunch, meet with friends or take your family of business associates.

While eating well prepared game we listened to a piano with a saxophonist to our great delight. The service was impeccable with tastes unique to Africa.

The Saxon Hotel Dining is great. I ate here a couple of times and each time the staff were so obliging and the food was delicious, just do it.

We were staying at the hotel and decided as we had been travelling and for convenience to eat at the Qunu restaurant. What a treat ! we had a great meal, beautifully presented and the service was very good. All of us thoroughly enjoyed all our choices and we thought the price was very good value.
