Foxwood House is an elegant boutique hotel on two and a half acres of lush gardens in Houghton, Johannesburg. It is a haven of tranquillity and old-world charm close to the business districts of Sandton, Rosebank and the Johannesburg CBD.
The suites are large and luxurious. The larger suites comprise a bedroom and living-areas. All have satellite TV featuring a large variety of channels.
Excellent cuisine can be enjoyed in the private or public dining areas in The Villa, an historic homestead, or on the patio under the oaks.
A modern complex offers a conference venue spilling out onto a pool area and large lawns, and the Nelson Mandela room for smaller meetings.
The theater is intimate, ideal for plays, musical evenings or corporate presentations.
There is ample parking in the gardens, excellent security inside and outside and competent, friendly staff to assist and advise visitors.
Please note that we are on the Rosebank / Killarney side of the M1 Highway.

* GPS Navigation:
When entering the street address into a satellite navigation device, be sure to type in both the words "Fifth Street" and not merely "5th" or "Fifth", in the field designated to street name.
(Houghton has a number of road names that are numbers, and it is important to enter the word "Street" afterwards, to avoid being directed to Fifth Avenue, which is fairly nearby.)
