Nestled in the exclusive Sandhurst suburb of Sandton, Saxon makes a word class statement of ethnic African elegance, combined with personalised attention to detail. Saxon has always been a place of welcome. First as a home, now a home away from home.

With its roots in the heart of Gauteng, it has drawn the warmth of the city that bred it from the world it has won its refinement and ease. Saxon has witnessed history within its walls as it became home to Nelson Mandela after he was released from prison. It was during this time that South Africas former President used the serene setting of Saxon to edit his autobiography Long Walk to Freedom.

Saxon boasts twenty-six 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, VCR 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 and Mbeki platinum suites are furnished to cater for the most discerning traveler.

The Health Centre includes an elaborately equipped fully supervised gymnasium, Clarins beauty salon and steam rooms.

Our brigade of world-class chefs ensure personalized cuisine, catering for our well-traveled guests.
