Stayed in this lovely boutique hotel in a leafy residential area twice last month. The suites, restaurant and service could have not been better. Huge room/suite, large bath area, Crestron control panel, HDTV home theater, private patio. Great concierge service from Jason Powell. Mercedes sedan to Apartheid museum, restaurant & airport. As a basis of comparison, it exceeds stays stay...

We didn't know Johannesburg and went through an agent from Zimbabwe who we are doing a tour with. Our extended tour is 'Top Shelf' and this Hotel is an incredible start. It is expensive but the service,the hotel itself,rooms,dining etc all matches the tariff. It is luxury plus. The staff are very obliging,well trained and very personable. I loved it.

We visited again this outstanding location. This time with some friends and for brunch. We really enjoyed the champagne and the delicious food. Also the atmosphere was great. The flower decoration at the entree was beautiful, as always. The ambiente was just lovely and amazing. And the staff very friendly. We will come again.

Wow, what an awesome experience we had last night for our wedding anniversary. The food was incredible, the decor eligent and the staff extremely friendly and professional.

The Saxon had impeccable service and attention to detail. The staff are always professional and so well trained. We visit the Saxon regularly and everything is always consistent. The rooms are beautiful, the food is incredible. The facials at the spa are worth recommending, but the massages, manicures and pedicures are less than average. However, I will still rate the...

Unfortunately we only spent one night in that wonderful hotel. We stayed in one of the presidential suites: large living room, bedroom, bathrooms, kitchenette and two balconies beautifully decorated. We had room service (mediterranean dish) which was good. The grounds are beautiful. The massage in the spa was very good and reasonably priced. Exceptional friendly service by all the employees.

Wow - I have been to spas worldwide and this one is superb. What i loved most was that there weren't hoards of people.

The treatments are comparable with any other spa although double the price. There was no reason to have found the spa experience exceptional. Disappointed with the overall quality of treatments. I booked initially online but received no feedback and called them after a week for an appointment but received no booking confirmation. Be prepared to pay R150+ for a glass...
