Guest feedback

Absolutely stunning venue. I love the abundance of nature present at this hotel - you would hardly believe it's 5mins from the centre of Sandton. The vines are truly magical. The inside of the main building is also spectacular, with a very luxurious but comfortable feel to it. The high ceilings and plush carpets make you feel quite awed. The service just adds to the feeling that you are important and special - the staff are professional and friendly and always ready to help. The food itself is also fantastic, with enough choices to make sure any taste is catered to.

I have stayed at the Saxon twice in the last few years. It is absolutely amazing. Located in Sandton in a neighbourhood full of gigantic homes and businesses, the Saxon is the class of hotels. Beautiful rooms situated on acres of trees and beautiful flowers, with four restaurants, a cigar room, a monument to Johnny Walker liquor, a friendly staff, and a historic library. To the best of my knowledge, it is not within walking distance of any stores or restaurants but I’m not sure you really need to leave the hotel - it is that good. Highly recommended.

We had the privilege of staying at this gorgeous boutique hotel before and after a safari to Zambia and Botswana. The rooms were the most beautiful, spacious and luxurious we've ever visited. A lovely bottle of champagne greeted us upon arrival. The service couldn't have been any better. Their spa is most excellent - I tried the Himalayan Salt ritual. Eating alfresco near the pool with heated lamps was a delicious sensory treat. The Saxon is a little piece of heaven!!

Great Hotel with great staff and excellent Restaurant. The Spa was fantastic as well. Suites were great but ask for one in the main hotel. Restaurant was superb and all the staff were great. Shower was one of the best i have ever had.

The reception, the service, the accommodations and the facilities and surroundings were first class. We recommend the Saxon very highly! It was our first time in SA and we were very impressed. The place is super classy. We will go back and stay longer.


It’s such a sense of arrival - as the garage gates open to a little piece of paradise. Carefully decorated, and extremely well managed, the Saxon is such an extraordinary option when in Joburg. Some highlights were the quality of the bed linen and bathroom Terry, the nice photos of the welcome amenity cards, the smoky and attentive staff, and that courtyard with nice thick wood tables and chairs - wow that was my favourite of all times! What a place for a drink!
