I stayed at Cotswold Gardens in July 2013. Excellent location in Saxonwold, close to all major business and shopping areas in the Johannesburg northern suburbs. Wonderful rooms (fabulous art pieces) and very good service - better than most guest houses and even high end boutique hotels. The staff was helpful and attentive yet discreet. Janine and Mike were absolute gems...

Located in the renowned and beautifully leafy area of Saxonwold in Johannesburg, Cotswold Gardens offers park-like gardens and accommodation which surpasses the suburb itself. Saxonwold is adjacent to freeways, Gautrain and Rosebank, thus very conveniently positioned.Mobile phone signal can be a little weak as it is in many areas of South Africa. Mike and Janine are great hosts to the...

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
