Nestled in the exclusive Sandhurst suburb of Sandton, Saxon Boutique Hotel and Spa makes a world-class statement of ethnic African elegance, combined with personalised attention to detail. Saxon Hotel 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 it's refinement and ease. Saxon Boutique Hotel and Spa 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 Africa's former President used the serene setting of Saxon Hotel to edit his autobiography 'Long walk to Freedom'.
