Attention to detail by an amazing bunch of people and the food is exquisite! The garden is beautifully tranquil and the suites are lovely. I would definitely go back for a leisurely relaxing break to escape ...

I had my pre-wedding photographs and stayed for that night at Ten 2nd Avenue, and the experience was absolutely fantastic. From the day I was given a site tour by the booking manager (he was happily willing to accommodate this on a public holiday) the journey was a pleasure. I was quoted a different price initially and the subsequent manager... More

Beautiful charming property in the suburbs. Large room, cozy bed. Quiet location. Beautiful, peaceful mature gardens. We were able to take breakfast on the open veranda enjoying the birds in the garden! There is an outdoor swimming pool (nice outdoor dining/bar area) but the water was freezing for me!!

The most amazing garden accompanied by a great courtyard pool. The service by management and staff was efficient, friendly and helpful. Lovely bedroom with all the possible necessities including WiFi and a TV. Luxurious bathroom. Most definitely worth a second visit.

My husband and I stayed at 10, 2nd Avenue for 12 days during our recent family/work/dental tourism visit to South Africa. It's a wonderful boutique hotel which provides an excellent contrast and warm place of respite to come home to after a day of trawling Jo'burg's shopping malls and a general escape for the at times frenetic pace of life...

Beautifull old building and even better garden. Great staff and if you have the chance ask for mike! He is the best and he will make your stay like a dream! Kitchen is good, only issue is the bar that is closing at 21.30.

I hired a board room for clients of mine who flew up to Johannesburg for a meeting, and the experience exceeded their expectations. The venue itself is set in lovely lush gardens, the Clivia boardroom was spotless, and everything went incredibly, including their gracious welcome when they arrived
