Absolutely loved our night at Foxwood, so much history in the house! It's really something different. Friendly helpful staff, very comfortable bed, delicious lamb for dinner, absolutely beautiful gardens.
The stay at Foxwood House was such a pleasant experience that I can recommend the establishment without any reservations. The only regret is that I could not stay longer to enjoy the historic setting and lovely gardens.
We had our annual dinner there recently because of previous good experiences and the old-world charm of the place. The gardens are well-established and inhabited by swans and peacocks, transporting one back to Johannesburg in its heyday. This time though I was disappointed, mainly because of lack of attention to detail. The food was ok, but sadly, nothing to write home about. I might risk visiting their theatre again, but will take my party elsewhere.
I am a frequent visitor to Foxwood House and I consider it my Home in Johannesburg. The friendly staff under Pieter de Vos have simply become family and I am always looking forward to my stay there so that I can catch up with everybody. The rooms are extremely comfortable and the interesting dressing and stunning gardens add to the homely atmosphere of this unique and very special establishment.
Is was a great experience. Was a great surprise. Everything is quite good, from the rooms, to property itself, with nice gardens, and very peaceful area. I'm used to stay in major hotels in Joburg, but this was a really different and enjoyable experience. By the way they serve a great dinner service upon request.
