Mike and Janine will welcome with open arms in a genuine South African way. The staff is efficient and always accessible and is always ready to greet you with an African smile. You start your day with an invigorating breakfast that can vary from a selection of fruit, toast,cereals and juices. With or without a cooked breakfast.
If you're new to South African and not sure of what to do, the hosts (Mike and Janine) will be more than happy to recommend activities of leisure (adventure, sport. shopping) or just a great place to eat out. Accompanied with informative brochures of course!
The house is decorated in a family style, giving you that sense of home away from home. You can come and go as you please with all the comfort you deserve. I've stayed several times at Cotswold Gardens and Mike and Janine and the staff are now part of the family.

Room Tip: Ask for the room facing the swimming pool, sunshine and bird song is guaranteed.

Janine and Mike are wonderful hosts, making me feel as though I were truly a family friend and not just a paying guest. There was a mix-up in my departure and I had to stay well into the afternoon. They remained gracious and kind despite having their family and friends visiting while I was 'hanging out'. Such generosity of spirit can be felt throughout the house and grounds, making it a lovely place to stay.

Janine, Mike and the staff were great. I had a 2 seperate planned stays in the Cotswold Gardens in the same week and on one evening they were able to accomodate me when I had to stay an extra night at the last minute. The room was spacious with a private big bathroom that was very well kept. When I needed information about taxis, tours, or nightlife, Janine was on the phone making calls or looking up information. Personal note: the breakfasts are delicious; a true "homey" experience. Thanks guys for a great stay!

I had a lovely stay for 3 nights and could not have been more pleased. The hosts - Janine and Mike are wonderful people that make you feel truly welcomed and looked after, they will do what ever is needed to ensure a wonderful stay for you. The rooms are comfortable, clean and with many details not overlooked (coffee/tea in room with fabulous cookies as one example). The location near rosebank mall is perfect for other meals and the wonderful sunday arts market on the roof if you can make it. The breakfast is made to order as you like your eggs, bacon, mushrooms, etc with fruit, cheese and more. A perfect place to end my 3 week african adventure as i head home.

Spent a few nights there, the owners were exceptionally nice and the staff were very curtious and helpful. The rooms were clean and well laid out. I couldn't ask for more in a hotel!
