Superb and beautiful guesthouse with friendly people. The rustic garden, big trees and beautiful historical buildings are exceptional. Beautifully suburb central to nearby shops and restaurants. Will definately stay there again when visiting Johannesburg.

Thank you for your feedback. The Foxwood staff members are so pleased. Fikile is in charge of the property and gardens. He is delighted about the remark about the garden landscapes. He is highly creative, blessed with a keen artistic eye and the drive to do something with it! His role goes much further than maintenance and supervision. The chefs are both so happy you enjoyed their food and both wish to thank you for the compliment.

We stayed at Foxwood for 5 nights and found it totally delightful. The house and grounds are full of character and it’s a bit like stepping back in time into a more peaceful world. Interesting little nooks and crannies at every corner. The staff were so friendly and helpful and set up a lovely table for us in the garden for breakfast every day. Pieter and Jan were excellent hosts. Would definitely recommend.

I was part of an international business meeting held in a nearby hotel, & as we were a large party, some of us were accommodated at Foxwood House. What a treat! From the leafy grounds, friendly staff to the beautiful animals (Simone the gorgeous German shepherd, free-ranging swans, ducks & peacocks!), it was a wonderful stay. Sure, the buildings are old & not everything is perfect, but it is a unique boutique hotel with lots of charm & character. The overall ambience more than makes up for it. Wish I had a longer stay for leisure instead of business! Top tip: get up early for a nice cooked breakfast in the dining room, made to order just for you.

What a charming review! Thank you so much for the compliments to our wonderful guardian and host Simon the German Shepherd, the swans, the peacocks and all the other creatures! I am sure on an intuitive level they responded wonderfully to you as much as you did to them. Your review is especially appreciated as we are only too well aware that it is virtually impossible to advertise our establishment. It does not conform to any specific standard in hospitality except our own. On behalf of Nikita, the chefs and all the other staff: thank you.
