I stayed at this hotel while on a business trip to Johannesburg. This would not be my normal venue on a business trip, as I prefer a business-oriented hotel with fitness facilities. However, it was close to the office I was visiting. I must say I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. The landscaping, terraces and balconies are all just gorgeous,... More

a rare gem set in a large city. The world changes once the gate slides open and you drive to reception where they rush to meet you with an umbrella or a smile. The smiles and real welcome make this more a home than a hotel. The rooms are delightful, the breakfast superb. There is nothing nicer than sitting on... More

This hotel is a pretend boutique hotel. My room was large but very ordinary by hotel standards. It was also unfortunately above the conference room which no-one warned me about. (more later) The room was dated and lacking any charisma (Room 5 - avoid rooms 5-7) but right next to the pool. Unfortunately the automatic cleaner ran the whole time... More

a very sophisticated boutique hotel located in a smart suburb of Johannesburg close to where Nelson Mandela's final house was. It is like staying in a large townhouse with a beautiful garden to relax in. Rooms are large and well apportioned. Full DSTV and excellent wifi. This is a good hotel for a business stay as well as a base... More

Well, having stayed in many small boutique hotels around the world and having just stayed at The Residence in Jo'burg - a genuine 5 star boutique this hotel was an instant disappointment. Greeted politely at reception and registration simple. Shown to room (14) which was mediocre - I rate this as mediocre based on a 5 star establishment, if a... More

I chose 10 2nd Avenue mainly because of location and expected somewhere nice. When I arrived, checked in and was shown to my room I worried that I may have read the prices wrongly and had come to somewhere far more expensive that I could afford. The house is an elegant, very nicely converted family mansion in peaceful and spacious... More

We commend Professor for his friendly service. This establishment is not recommended for dinner. The Parma ham Hors de oeuvre: 1 out of 5. The LONG-FROZEN Kabeljou main course: MINUS 5 out of 5. The unappetizing presented Fillet steak: scored 1 out of 5. We encourage future guests to rather book dinner at Thomas Maxwell Bistro in Parkmore; telephone number:... More

We decided on dinner at 10 2nd Avenue Houghton Estate, having read raving reviews. We were six adults, and there were three choices of mains: fillet, kabeljou and a vegetarian meal. Five of the six of us chose the kabeljou. We were each confronted with what appeared to resemble a small piece of recently defrosted grey fish. According to Professor,... More
