House Higgo is truly set at a beautiful location, and the gardens are spectacular. Unfortunately, upon our arrival there was an event taking place, and this proved to be very noisy - we couldn't open a window for fresh air due to the noise and the rooms don't have an aircon, so you don't have much option.

We had a great stay at House Higgo, the atmosphere is relaxed and the accommodation and service top notch. The gardens and decor are beautiful too. So glad I have chosen this place as my long term stay partner in JNB.

House Higgo is a cut above the rest. The house, rooms and gardens are truly breathtaking. Simon was a great host and took care of all our needs, nothing was too big or too small. One feels safe and secure.

We received a lot of attention from Simon, he was very hospitable and great with our kids. Our family enjoyed the facilities.

I booked an overnight stay for my brother and his partner recently. The establishment upgraded them to the best room in the house and treated them like royalty. From what I hear the staff was wonderful, engaged and the facilities a treat :) I am booking a stay for myself soonest!!

The Higgo House is beautiful and exactly what I was looking for after 24 hours of travel! It's a bit farther from the airport than most hotels, but it's in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood. I loved it!
