    A-M-A-Z-I-N-G”

    My husband and I stayed here for a few days on our trip to Johannesburg and it was Spectacular!!! The Hotel is truly one of a kind it’s not your typical cookie cutter hotel but instead a architectural dream with a surprise around every corner. The hotel is extremely clean and the staff is so friendly goes above and beyond we forgot our outlet converters and even though the hotel offers this standard our one of our plug could not fit the converter offered we recognized this later in the evening and they offered to run into town to get us the correct one. This is the type of special care and service they offer. It was so good we had to force ourselves to leave the property to check out The town. If you are looking to feel like royalty this is the place to stay you will not be disappointed. We’ve stayed at plenty of 5 star hotels around the world and this tops the list. Truly the Epitome of first class service. We will definitely be going back.

    Superb Hotel-This or the Four Seasons”

    This hotel is great for what it is...incredibly private, secure, secluded, elegant (except for all the gaudy drawings of the owner---wow) and checks the boxes. This is where the top level biz people, celebs, politicians (was that Mugabe I saw?') and dictators go! The gadgets in the room are great and functional. Rooms very large. It's quiet but also quite large. It definitely needs to be refreshed but I think that the owner doesn't have to given its reputation and status. Two choices in Joburg. The other is the Four Seasons. So it comes down I whether you want or need to be in Sandton.

    Room for improvement here.”

    Splendid eclectic mix of traditional African and contemporary Interior Decoration, Low guest numbers, well appointed guest bedroom.

    Hotel itself basically fine. Any problems I encountered were via unhelpful staff behaviour/management policy? Seemed inappropriate during my accompanied guest-room familiarization to be repeatedly instructed to "come" (i.e. As one might address a small, well trained, domestic pet animal) by the staff member entrusted with this important "breaking of the ice" task. Uniquely disagreeable behaviour. As a cigar smoker I was disappointed to discover the hotel's guest cigar lounge/library was often unavailable to hotel guests on account of it being utilized by non-smokers for some purpose other than to enjoy a cigar. Surely the Saxon could provide non smokers with some other facility, enabling such a room to remain dedicated to its original, and advertised, purpose as a dedicated cigar smoking facility? I encountered several instances of inadequate/unprofessional customer service during the first day at The Saxon (especially among some restaurant staff) although service did improve on the second day of my 2 day stay. By the end of my 2-day stay I felt a warmth among all staff which was good.
