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.

We appreciate you taking time to post a review, and we truly value your comments. Over the years Foxwood House has developed a large number of distinct, signature dishes which have become firm favourites with so many of our guests. Knowing that you are a doctor and renowned dietician, we (perhaps mistakenly) followed your directive to prepare unfamiliar menu items, the recipes for which were to be found on Pinterest. In retrospect, our experience should have motivated us to advise you differently. It is our wish that all our guests should experience only the best that Foxwood House has to offer, and we sincerely regret that you were disappointed with certain aspects of the evening.

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.
