Wonderful hotel, superb service

We have just returned from a wonderful 5 night stay at the Saxon in a presidential suite in Villa 2. The rooom, hotel facilities, restaurants and service are all right up there with the best places we have stayed around the world. It is an oasis in the middle of the city both relaxing and quiet. The room was imacculate, well presented and comfortable, the pools and grounds similarly beautiful. Most impressed with the range of dining options - wide ranging menu to suit all and lovely restaurants within the hotel building. we especially enjoyed dining outside on the terrace where the food and service are excellent but the experience less formal. Specific quality of service mentions to Bryan who provided such great wine guidance and help, Mphiso for wonderful service on the terrace and Thobeka who look after us so gracefully at breakfast. My son said that over and above the pool what he liked best was that the people were all so friendly. Really great value and feeling thoroughly well rested. We will definitely stay again when visiting Joburg. Thank you

Beautiful Property

We had a lovely stay at the Saxon. The restaurants were delicious and we loved the extras in the mini bar. The staff was incredible. They organized a fabulous tour for us, and kept us & our tour guide On task due to our tight window for the tour. Also loved the spa and it’s indoor/outdoor setting. The massages were a great treat!

Delightful Decadence

I was a guest for Sunday brunch at this amazing venue. The meal was amazing a buffet that catered to every taste, The maun course I ordered the Salmon was spectacular. The service was attantive but not intrusive. I had a glorious 4 hour visit. The decor and opulence of the Saxon is a visual delight. I was extremely pleased I was not paying the bill as I heard complimentary Champagne not a complimentary Champagne and had lots. I really enjoyed the experience
