My wife and I stayed at Cotswold Gardens for over two weeks on our last trip to South Africa in July - September 2016. We always stay there as we frequently visit South Africa. The accommodations are excellent--comfortable, beautiful, clean and so close to many of Joburg's sights, shopping and restaurants. The breakfast they serve is delicious! Cotswold is also... More

We loved our 3 stays at Cotswold Gardens during our month long trip to Africa. The location is great and the hosts of Cotswold Gardens were terrific. They helped us in every way to make our stays in Johannesburg special. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfasts are delicious. What sets this place apart is the very special... More

My husband and I relaxed by the pool when we arrived and couldn't stop admiring the beautiful flowers and trees in the yard. Everything about this guesthouse made us feel right at home. Breakfast is a lovely buffet of fresh fruit, cheese, breads, cereals, yogurt, coffee, tea, and juice, plus eggs cooked any way we wanted them. The staff is... More

And I enjoyed breakfast! The place and the neighborhood is quite and within walking distance to the mall... More

Great location and very friendly service. There were nice small touches combined with excellent recommendations on what do. We could walk to the galleries and we took taxis to everything else that we wanted to see. Our trip ended in Jo Berg and it was a perfect ending.

Saxonwold is just out of the main hyperdrive of Rosebank, and is actually rather well placed for just about anywhere you want to go in this lovely area. Cotswold Gardens is in a quiet and very treed area, with off street parking. The room or suite you may have will probably be quiet and comfortable. Extremely good value for money.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cotswold Gardens in Saxonwold Johannesburg is a 4 Star guesthouse offering peace, tranquility and the very best in personal attention.Our rooms are clean and comfortable with ensuite bathrooms. The house is warm and inviting in winter and in summer, relaxing in the garden to the sounds of many different species of birdlife brings joy to many of our guests. We are great art lovers and this can be seen by the many examples of artwork displayed in all of the rooms. We offer a full English breakfast which our guests have always raved about. Our two self-catering suites are in great demand. They are fully equipped and perfect for long stays. They are perfect for a single person or a couple. Our location is without a doubt one of our main attractions. ... more   less
