“Cotswold Gardens”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

we spent three nights here...it was absolutely delightful...a wonderful room, a great breakfast, and super service...I was a bit concerned about staying in Johannesburg...this was a very safe place...and it was close to the places we wanted to visit...we also did a tour of Johannesburg/Soweto and the van came to the house to pick us up

we stayed in Cotswold Gardens in the end of our three week road trip through South-Africa, just to relax for a couple of days .Mike and Janine made us feel very welcome, as did all of their staff. Their friendlyness and helpfullness made us feel right at home! The B&B has everything you could wish for: clean and comfortable rooms, a tasty breakfast, a beautiful garden... all on a walking distanbce from Rosebank Mall.
If we go back to Johannseburg, we certainly will go back to Cotswold Gardens

On our trip to South Africa we decided to avoid hotels and stay in B&B guest houses. We read a review of Cotswold Gardens in a guide book and made a reservation. The owner helped arrange our airport transfer and was standing in the garden to greet us on arrival, literally! We found this guest house to be lovely, situated in a very nice neighborhood of tree-lined streets. The owner was very helpful in getting us settled and advising us on attractions, restsurants, shopping. Our room was very comfortable, looking out on a small garden. The bathroom was large and well-equipped. The breakfast buffet was plentiful & tasty, with eggs and bacon cooked to order. You can easily walk to the Rosebank Mall. We highly recommend this guest house!

Room Tip: Ask for room #3 if you want a room looking outvon a small garden & fountain.

I stayed at Cotswold Gardens for the second time in November 2012. As before, Janine and Mike are extremely welcoming and helpful with recommendations and practical matters; the room was well maintained and equipped, and the breakfasts were plentiful and delicious. Most important, Janine's artistic eye and attention to detail is evident everywhere, making this B & B a true haven from the minute you walk through the door into the magnificent garden.

I would really recommend this B&B to everybody! We have spend 3 weeks in South Africa and all people are extremely nice, but the owners here are truly fantastic! Janine and Mike are the most welcoming, helpful and lovely people! The B&B has everything you could wish for : a beautiful / peaceful garden, lovely rooms, yummy breakfast and very nice staff. You feel straight at home! We had a lovely time there! It’s just perfect and 100% worthwhile!

we stayed here late in September and found everything just perfect - spotlessly clean, comfortable rooms, excellent breakfasts, and a warm welcome from Janine and Mike. Very central, too, in a safe, leafy suburb of the city.
We have booked to stay again - a place we will always come back to when going to Johannesburg.

My wife and I recently spent 9 nights and had such a wonderful and relaxing time. In fact Cotswold Gardens was the highlite of our 2 weeks in South Africa. This was our 2nd time staying at 46 Cotswold Gardens.
The accomodation is clean, comfortable ,up to date and spacious.
The breakfasts were fantastic, better than any fancy hotel. great food and amazing service. Nothing was too much.
Our hosts Mike and Janine made us feel so welcome ,like family.
Cotswold Gardens is so well situated . Close to everywhere. And SAFE. Beautiful gardens and pool.
My wife and I, both in our 60's have travelled all over the world and we can honestly say that this is hard to beat.
Worth every cent and more.
You better book quickly before everone finds this gem.

Room Tip: Room 2 was our room. 2 new upstairs rooms looked amazing as well
