Stopped over at this lovely Estate for 4 days -the property is situated on a large "private" property. There is a was lovely sense of being "at home", the rooms are large and the special toiletries are a unique and lovely treat. All the staff were attentive, welcoming and paid great attention to every detail. Breakfasts were generous and evening... More

This is a late review. We spent just one night in november 2007 for our honeymoon, coming for Sabi Sand (Kruger) going to the Quirimbas ilands (Mozambique). Really a very nice place where to spend a night! Colonial style welle kept.

I have nothing but glowingly positive things to say about 10 2nd Ave. The service was excellent across the board from the housekeeping to the servers at the excellent restaurant to the chef and the managers. Every person at 10 2nd Ave. worked as a team to make sure that the guests had everything they needed to be comfortable. The... More

Stayed here for 2 nights earlier this month (September 2014) . A classic example of the type of hotel South Africa does so well. A former colonial/upper middle class home converted to a boutique hotel. Very good food in the evenings (though a limited menu) and really good rooms and garden. Genuine warm welcome - would I stop there again?... More

I came to Johannesburg deal with a family crisis. The weather was unseasonably hot and dry. Fortunately 10 2nd Ave was there to privide a green welcoming oasis of calm and comfort. The room was well appointed, and large enough not to feel constrained, the bathroom similarly. Breakfast was sensational with fresh squeezed juices, fruit whip, and a healthy selection... More

I loved everything about this place. Neat light and airy property, big grounds with a beautiful green lawn, the white roses were in full bloom and given that it was winter and Johannesburg has a cold dry season, the green was calming. Rooms are huge but inviting, fireplace a real treat and I loved the toiletries in bottles. Well stocked... More

I spent one day and one night at the hotel whilst on a business trip. Apart from the friendly and professional staff, the rooms were a great pleasure to stay in. I had dinner in the restaurant and it was out of this world! Great quality and I could definitely recommend my experience to others.
