The Saxon is a well-kept secret as far as both Johannesburg and international travelers are concerned, offering guests a luxurious retreat where they can relax and immerse themselves in the exquisite, stylish atmosphere.

Saxon boasts twenty-four suites of various sizes. All suites incorporate a strong element of African art, latticed shutters covering large bay windows, looking onto the tranquil gardens or pool area. Each suite features large screen televisions and DVD player with surrounding sound systems. Workstations fitted with multi telephone, fax and ISDN lines, provides each guest an incomparable experience in business-orientated hospitality.
The four presidential suites each feature a separate lounge and dining area. The spectacular Mandela platinum suites are furnished to cater for the most discerning traveler.

Reviews for Saxon Hotel
What a delicious meal and the staff are outstanding. The guards at the gate were very friendly, the gentleman that walked me from the garage to hotel lobby was equally friendly and the restaurant staff were simply amazing. Thank you all and please tell Jane the food was marvelous.
Wow, simply amazing. The decor and style of the venue is truly stunning. Sent the wife for a half day spa session. She could not stop raving about the treatments, the food and the pampering. Best service and facilities in JHB. We spent some time at the pool area after and that too was spectacular. It's a whole different world. It was a special occasion so I prepared to splurge. I don't know if i would be able to afford it again though.
Marvellous place. Beautiful spa area. Had an aromatherapy massage there and highly recommend it! One of the best massages I had. Book a table at the restaurant for once youre pampered. Impressive dining room and impeccable staff.
All things five stars. Service with a smile. Comfortable.. An absolute must!
Nothing can explain the feeling. I urge you all to visit and experience the sheer beauty of the Saxon Hotel. Warm welcome splendid food lovely rooms and great for people who love their privacy. The spa treatments are mwah to die for
Always have an amazing experience when I visit; great food cooked & presented with care and love. Friendly service and immaculate settings. The ambiance is what keeps me coming
This is a very upmarket, secluded hotel offering patrons exclusivity and privacy. Here patrons are ushered with various Mercedes Benz C classes from parking to reception. The staff is so alert and very helpful. You get a sense that they are highly trained in customer satisfaction which bears testimony in their knowledge of food and winery. One of the striking features you will notice is their high walls, tall doors and windows. It is majestic and makes one feel like they are in the presence of greatness. The hotel offers conferences among overnight stays and other such like offerings. A 200g steak will set you back R320 in their restaurant. This is expected especially with the high end clientele it bolsters.
Spectacular setting.. Quiet setting.. I loved the green country feel... Would recommend for weddings meant to never be forgotten.. Great service too..
Exceptional service and great food. The Saxon is a truly world class establishment. Every time I go there for a leisurely breakfast they never fail to amaze. As I live in Johannesburg I have never had reason to stay there overnight but based on my experiences there I would highly recommend it.The buildings are exquisite and the gardens are green, lush and immaculately maintained. A true oasis in the hustle and bustle of Johannesburg.
Very swanky hotel in Sandhurst. Very close to Sandton and the business centre of Johannesburg. The hotel is stunning and you get treated like royalty for your stay. The spaIs also great. Sundowner Cocktails on the veranda overlooking the infinity pools are a must. The roof is movable and the open it in the evening so you can see the stars.
Attended an evening function at the Saxon. From the staff at the entrance, to management, waiters etc. They were all very friendly and helpful. Wonderful attention to detail. Great red wine accompanied by excellent canaps. It was a good night out, even though some work needed to be done
Amazing spa experience! The hospitality and service are on another level... The set up of the lobby and spa area is beautiful and immediately puts you in a relaxed mood... Will definitely be visiting again :)
This is a beautiful hotel. The personal service and attention is out of this world. I will recommend it to anyone wanting to be treated like royalty.
The place is just amazing with a personal history and a famous history. The hotel is beautiful decorated with African theme. The hotel have two restaurants which you can choose between a la carte or a set menu. The hotel also have a newly refurbished spa that does all sort of treatments. Most of all, it is situated in a busy area but you don't feel like you are.
