Wanted to highlight the super efficiency, knowledge and amazing disposition of Samantha, Dumisani and Ashwin at The Saxon Hotel in Sandown, Jhb. We needed a venue for 18 people urgently and these amazing people stepped up and over-delivered on everything, venue, food, ambience, decor and advice - am so grateful. Keep up the great work!

I visited the Saxon to celebrate my friend’s arrival in South Africa. What an unforgettable experience. Chia-Wen Huang from the hotel made the experience so special by explaining all the dishes, the different teas and made as feel very special. We received complimentary champagne. Then were served cold and warm sandwiches and canapés as well as a variety of sweet treats. The variety was so much we couldn’t finished everything. We were offered the opportunity to take the left overs dishes home. Absolutely worth the money.

Booked a night away for my husband's birthday. Stayed with my 5 year old daughter. Wonderful experience, the staff catered so well for her. They even managed to do inroom spa treatments for all of us. We felt pampered and spoilt. The food was excellent. My only criticism would be to ensure the pool steps are cleaned of bird poo...my daughter took one look and refused to go into the pool. Will definitely go back.

My friend and I had the most amazing high tea experience at the Saxon. Incredible service from the valet parking to the waiters/waitress. The place was clean and neat, and the food was delicious. Courses were paired wonderfully with both sweet and savory dishes. Our list of dietary requirements and food allergies were provided prior to arrival and all dishes were prepared accordingly. We went out to celebrate my birthday and the pianist even played a little happy birthday tune which was served with a delightful dessert. We enjoyed every minute of the afternoon and cant wait to our next tea.

One of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed. The suite was very spacious and well organized. The garden was well maintained and beautiful. The service was excellent. I stayed two nights before going to Safaris in Botswana in September. I would highly recommend this hotel to relax before your adventure.
