We stayed in a suite and it was amazing. This guesthouse just has all the attention to details - the wall paintings & decorations, the warm bottle in your bed, the bath tub, the port wine in your room, the bathroom cosmetics - and above all the food! We had dinner here every night simply we did not want to... More

This was our second visit to Ashdown after a comfortable and enjoyable stay in February this year. We were again welcomed as family and well looked after. The breakfasts are amazing and the 24 hour honesty bar is quite handy! The location is ideal for both Sandton City and the new Mall of Africa not to mention the numerous restaurants... More

This is truly a beautiful place: attention to details and a lovely garden. Friendly staff - we felt looked after. Breakfast was excellent. Peaceful and quiet area with only the sound of birds in the trees. Well secured.

Ashdown House is beautiful and the perfect place to stay. The room was perfect and the breakfast was delicious. I loved the 'honesty' bar. The bed and breakfast is centrally located...only 15 minutes from Sandton.

We arrived in JHB and checked into the Guesthouse we booked only to be horrified. The next morning we google searched for a new guesthouse and asked to view Ashdown before making the booking. They welcomed us with open arms and made us feel so at home. We travel a lot and having a little 3 month old baby does... More

Arrived for our first time in South Africa and decided to stay at the Ashdown House. We chose the ashdown house because it was close to the Lion Park but we really found out it was a slice of heaven to adapt to South African life.

Really enjoyed my time at Ashdown... Cannot recommend it more. Wonderful staff, delicious breakfast, and lovely accommodations. Highly recommended! I would really recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the area as it was safe accommodation close to both Sandton and downtown Joburg. Thank you for your hosting!

I was traveling with my wife, daughter and son-in-law. So I asked them to independently rate each hotel and restaurant we visited in SA. We all agreed that Ashdown is a hands-down 5 stars.
