Amazing high tea

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 18 Oct 2021
My friend and I had the most amazing high tea experience at the Saxon. Incredible service from the valet parking to the waiters/waitress. The place was clean and neat, and the food was delicious. Courses were paired wonderfully with both sweet and savory dishes. Our list of dietary requirements and food allergies were provided prior to arrival and all dishes were prepared accordingly.

We went out to celebrate my birthday and the pianist even played a little happy birthday tune which was served with a delightful dessert.

We enjoyed every minute of the afternoon and cant wait to our next tea.

One of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed.

The suite was very spacious and well organized.
The garden was well maintained and beautiful.
The service was excellent.

I stayed two nights before going to Safaris in Botswana in September.

I would highly recommend this hotel to relax before your adventure.

Had coffee and cake at the Terrace Restaurant yesterday. From our arrival to when we left, we were treated extraordinarily well, creating a magical memory for our anniversary. When staff found out we were celebrating, we were presented with a special dessert plate congratulating us. This gesture was the highlight of our day. Staff are friendly but not overbearing. Thank you Saxon Hotel.

A truly wonderful experience, from the moment you enter, being welcomed by the friendly staff, to the set up in the Piano Room, the delectable range of sweets and savories, coffees and teas, it’s exceptional. And a special mention to Joy, our waitress, she was so accommodating to all our requirements, she is a real gem. Thank you for making our visit so special.

Indulge in High Tea, morning or afternoon, and be delighted by the offerings of Executive Chef Matthew, and the perfect creations of Pastry Chef Catherine. Be impressed. Hostess Joy, is a joy, and her attentive service was appreciated. No need to eat for the rest of the day.

I had stayed at this extraordinary property several years before and was anxious to return. It was as outstanding as I had remembered.
From the minute my grandson and I entered, we were met by the warmest and most gracious staff. The employees throughout the hotel are of the highest caliber.
When inquired the following day if they might have a booklet describing the artwork,
I was presented with the concierge who gave us a special guided tour of the hotel explaining the various artifacts. His knowledge and graciousness were greatly appreciated.
The public rooms and bedrooms are magnificent, beautifully and artistically decorated. They have the finest amenities.
We had an excellent dinner at the Qunu Restaurant with fine food and superb service.
The hair salon and spa are extraordinary. The main colorist is the finest I have ever used. She is a real artist.
Thank you for making our stay so very memorable. I look forward to returning again in the future.
