Three of us stayed at Cotswold Gardens just before Christmas 2013. It's a beautiful house, with spectacular gardens and pool - very relaxing and comfortable. Great location too, in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood. Hosts Janine and Mike were wonderfully informative, offering excellent advice - we were lucky to meet up with them also on the Garden Route a few days...

I had a remarkably pleasant and comfortable experience during my recent business trip, when I stayed 5 nights at Cotswold Gardens.

If you are looking for an affordable, nice, welcoming, place to stay VERY Close to Rosebank and Gautrain- this is the perfect place. The hosts are helpful- without being over barring. The gardens are an excellent place to relax, read and just chill... The environment is like home.. but without the hassle of cleaning :)

We stayed for two months whilst our home was being renovated. Cotswold Gardens was an oasis of tranquility during our noisy and dirty renovations. The owners were absolutely wonderful and supportive and made us feel very welcome - well beyond the requirements of guest house proprietors. Breakfasts were excellent with broad selection of foods and especially delicious croissants. We left...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cotswold Gardens in Saxonwold Johannesburg is a 4 Star guesthouse offering peace, tranquility and the very best in personal attention.Our rooms are clean and comfortable with ensuite bathrooms. The house is warm and inviting in winter and in summer, relaxing in the garden to the sounds of many different species of birdlife brings joy to many of our guests. We are great art lovers and this can be seen by the many examples of artwork displayed in all of the rooms. We offer a full English breakfast which our guests have always raved about. Our two self-catering suites are in great demand. They are fully equipped and perfect for long stays. They are perfect for a single person or a couple. Our location is without a doubt one of our main attractions. ... more   less
