“All the right reasons to go back and stay there...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

10 2nd Avenue Houghton Estate is a perfect place to stay for those who appreciate a quiet and safe neighbourhood, a lovely (green) view from the window, excellent service (including the daily welcome drink waiting for you), friendly and almost aristocratically polite staff. The rooms are clean and tidy, food is excellent and the help provided is professional. A refreshing start for the day in the hotel swimming pool and relaxing dinner to end the day are equally superb. The guests seem to value the tranquility and respect each others' privacy - a calm and elegant stay guaranteed! We have stayed there twice and are making plans for the next trip...

Perfect service, wonderful food ( served in five star style) and a overall super stylish experience. The room was beautiful and clean and we loved the personal touches like home made chocolates next to your bed and shortbread. It really has a personal feel and not just another chain Hotel. We wanted a romantic time for my husbands birthday and it was perfect.

No hassle and no fuss at checking in and checking out. My requests were more then adequately met.
The place is ideally situated, peaceful and so damn relaxing.

There is no red tape in this place only charm and elegance.

Room Tip: Make special requests for room and that will be attended to.

Amazing service, beautiful, very clean rooms, fire place (mmmm!), comfortable bedding, wonderful bathroom including bathtub fit for actual bathing (hard to find in any hotel) and just overall relaxing and gorgeous. My only wish is that I had more time to spend there! I will definitely stay there again when I go back.

This is a 1930s colonial property that has seen a few uses over the years but is now a small but very pleasant hotel. I stayed here for a couple of nights in September 2012 and could not fault the service; staff were fantastic without exception. My room, not in the main house, was fine - spacious and comfortable. The main house retains its homely charm. Sitting by the open fire during an unusual cold snap and sampling the wine list (which seems very good) was a real treat. Breakfasts were plentiful and tasty; the restaurant was quiet but the quality was spot on. So this must be a good choice if staying in J-Burg, particularly if like me you like to avoid chains.

Room Tip: I suspect that the rooms in the main house are even nicer than those in the annex. Pool is small and...

The most perfect boutique hotel! We felt very spoiled as the service was superb, the gardens magnificent, the food luscious, and the rooms spacious and well-apponted. We will always fondly remember our stay at 10 2nd Avenue. This should be your only hotel choice in J-berg.

I always stay in 10 2nd ave Houghton Estate when I go to Johannesburg, i.e. more than 20 noghts per year. It provides all the services you normally find in a luxury hotel. It is professionally run, there is always a manager, chef,waitors and someone at housekeeping.
They are extremely friendly and prepared to go the extra mile. Eg. Although they have a good al la cart menu, the chef is always prepared to prepare a special dish on request.
