The Saxon is everything you could hope for in Johannesburg. We stayed here on a stop over on our honeymoon. Everything was excellent, in fact it was so good we were rather annoyed we only had one night to enjoy it. Next time we are in Johannesburg there is only one place we will be staying.

Two hours of afternoon tea at the Saxon on 31 December - an experience we will not forget. Ever. - The tea selection is outstanding and as a tea lover I could have spent the 2 hours there just drinking tea and enjoying the piano player's interpretation of well-known and timeless music. Delightful.

The food - prepared to perfection and - most importantly - NOT an onslaught on the guests' girth, exquisitely prepared, presented and spaced out over 2 hours. This is called style! Fortunately the Saxon has style in abundance, other hotels may have at times more food but lack style. So...- the choice is for the reader of this review where to spend a fantastic 2 hours next time they go out for a treat.

The Saxon was by far one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at, and it felt like a very safe environment. Despite being located near a large city, the hotel itself was tranquil. Incredible service as well.

Room Tip: Villas are the best because of how private and spacious they are.

I booked a couple of treatments at the Saxon for my partner and I. We arrived early, got changed and relaxed for a while in the pool area. We used the ice pool, outdoor pool and salt bath extensively as well as the sauna. It put me in such a great state that I fell asleep during my massage!! Excellent spa that is worth the spoil

Beautiful boutique hotel located in the affluent area of Sandton about 15 minutes from the centre of town. Facilities include a heated outdoor pool and a smallish gym as well as a bar, a library/tea room and an indoor formal dining area. The Nelson Mandela suite so named as this was where He stayed after his release is both historic and incredibly serene, spacious and luxurious
