A brilliant hotel and great service

What a fabulous hotel with fantastic suites and amazing and friendly service. The restaurant at the pool was simple and excellent and with good wine by the glass advice. Pricey hotel but worth the money!

Fabulous surprise!

I don't write reviews, which I probably should as my husband and I are very frequent travelers (we spent well over 75 days in hotels in the last year) and use trip advisor a lot when deciding at what hotels to stay. We spent one night at the Saxon as a stop over to visit relatives on our third South African trip. The property is magnificant, certainly not what we have experienced in Johannesburg before, the rooms impecable and the staff, particulary Masood and Dale went above and beyond! Only wish we had more time to spend at this oasis in a bustling city.

Beautiful hotel with beautiful people

First impressions are important and Saxon did not disappoint. We had four overnight stays and the reception was friendly and welcoming on every visit. We stayed in three different suites and there was not much difference between the suites. The decor of each suite was beautiful with Molton Brown toiletries for your personal use in the luxurious bathroom and separate shower.

We had dinner at both restaurants - the first restaurant Cree it was a taster menu with matching wine. The food was beautifully presented - but the background music was slightly too loud so we had difficulty to hear the waiter and the consommé when they tried to describe the wine and the food.

Restaurant Quin the food was tasty but some of the dishes require more sauce as they were too dry

Hotel was accommodating to our needs as they held luggage in storage between visits - which were waiting in our room on our new check-in. Hopefully on our next stay we can stay longer than single nights

Best place to stay...

Having been a guest for many years the hotel is still a 'wow'zer - amazing location, stunning pool views + impeccable food & service. Denise at reception always tries (and succeeds) to make our experience extra special. Will return soon!

You will not stay in a better place than this.....

Absolutely amazing stay at The Saxon. Our villa room was amazing and we ate at both Grei and Qunu which were fantastic. Candice in Grei even came out to chat to us after our meal which was a lovely touch. Of particular note are the staff, we were looked after by Philip, Brian and William in our villa and their attention to detail could not have been better. Indeed, the property let us spend the day by the pool on the day we checked out and Brian personally ensured that we were invited back to the bar within the villas for drinks and canapés before we left. Everything was first class in every respect. Thanks for an unforgettable experience.
