My husband and I have stayed at Ashdown House quite a few times and, five years ago, I wrote a review that highlighted the attention to detail, the comfort and the personal touches offered by this establishment. However, after an overnight stay at the end of November, we feel that Ashdown House has sadly lost much of its personal magic....

The manager was very friendly and we were shown around. The suite was huge with a full bathroom, separate lounge and sleeping area. The terrace overlooked the garden and pool...

Ashdown house pays attention to the details. The rooms are decorated beautifully and the addition of refrigerated milk for enough tea and coffee along with fruit provides create comforts. They have also put effort into creating a peaceful and serene environment for relaxation.

We stayed in a suite and it was amazing. This guesthouse just has all the attention to details - the wall paintings & decorations, the warm bottle in your bed, the bath tub, the port wine in your room, the bathroom cosmetics - and above all the food! We had dinner here every night simply we did not want to...

This was our second visit to Ashdown after a comfortable and enjoyable stay in February this year. We were again welcomed as family and well looked after. The breakfasts are amazing and the 24 hour honesty bar is quite handy! The location is ideal for both Sandton City and the new Mall of Africa not to mention the numerous restaurants...

This is truly a beautiful place: attention to details and a lovely garden. Friendly staff - we felt looked after. Breakfast was excellent. Peaceful and quiet area with only the sound of birds in the trees. Well secured.

Ashdown House is beautiful and the perfect place to stay. The room was perfect and the breakfast was delicious. I loved the 'honesty' bar. The bed and breakfast is centrally located...only 15 minutes from Sandton.

“Pool facing rooms are the best, I think only 2 rooms don't face the pool anyway, but all rooms are lovely, even the standard rooms are nice. I generally get a delux, but used to get a standard. It's a pleasant experience regardless.”
