House Higgo is a wonderful Guest House hidden in the quiet suburb of Northcliff, Johannesburg, South Africa. My husband Alex and I have stayed there four times now and each time we are made to feel part of the extended family of Eugenie. The staff are truly wonderful, and we are now the proud "adopted parents" of Thembi! Simon goes... More

House Higgo is beautiful maintained venue hidden in the Northcliff suburb. You only appreciate this little place once you get inside and see the beautiful rooms, gorgeous view and gardens. We received wonderful personal attention from all the staff who welcomed us. It is great value for money and well worth visiting this 4 star boutique venue. We have had... More

House Higgo can do so much more if they concentrated on the little things. For example: when I arrived in my room and went onto the balcony to look at the beautiful view I notices a huge iron table folded up against the wall with an old looking extension cord and black crate on the balcony. I had to ask... More

We booked in for our anniversary and I will defnitely be going back for anniversaries to come!! Thank you for the wonderful stay! I must say, I quite liked the lamps covered in feathers........

Wwe have not received what was promised when we booked. Costs at end if event completely different than was quoted. Services paid for was not available. Had to get our own drinks from nearby bottle store, there was no drinks to be served for sundowners as booked. The staff were uninformed of arrangements and manager not available. Horrific!

House Higgo is great. Fantastic service, clean and spacious rooms (I stayed in the Presidential suite), a beautiful view of the Jacaranda trees covering the suburbs and an amazing garden. My only criticism would be the cheesy furnishings (like black lamps covered in feathers) and the breakfast we had which was pretty average. Besides that, I really enjoyed my stay!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at House Higgo. They have a beautiful, tranquil house with a perfectly manicured garden. The service was very good, especially as they made me a breakfast pack every morning as I left too early for their normal breakfast hours.

I stayed at House Higgo while traveling by myself and I wanted to stay in a nice, safe, but affordable place. It was perfect. The house is beautiful and very comfortable. Staff was incredibly nice and accommodating. Breakfast was prepared every morning and the staff helped me find drivers to take me throughout the city.

We enjoyed the stay very much, pity was that it was too cold outside to try out the jacuzzi and pool:) The private dinner was laid out beautifully by Simon the chef. The only negative was that the birthday party held upstairs was a bit noisy.

Daddy's Deals was offering a voucher for House Higgo. I firstly had a look at House Higgo's website and was quite impressed. I went ahead and bought a voucher as an anniversary gift for my husband. I booked the evening of the 12 of July 2014 so that we could celebrate our first anniversary in style. We were both blown... More
