  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Excellent premise and location. We stayed in a villa, but Qunu restaurant service sub par and overpriced. Had to ask 3x just to get a bottle of wine and waiters kept forgetting our orders

We asked to be picked up at the airport and they were waiting for us when we arrived! The ride and the chauffeur were perfect. We were greated by the manager at our arrival who introduced is to our concierge Lyndsey and she attended to all our needs perfectly. We asked for late checkout the next day since our flight was at 8:00 PM and they let us have the room till 3:00 PM graciously! The room was exceptional, the service and facilities superb. We were there on our last trip to JNB and we will be back on our next one!

amazing evening!

Absolutely superb. We were unfortunately only here one night but I would return to Johannesburg just to stay here again. One of my favorite hotels ever. Rooms were above and beyond, dinner at Qunu was fabulous and breakfast served in room was delightful as well. The property and staff unparalleled.

When we have to stay in J'Berg this is the ONLY hotel to stay at. Everything about The Saxon is exceptional from the service right down to the bedding. 1 night is never enough!
