I stayed one night to be in the area for business. Rooms were clean and tidy. Felt secure, which is important when traveling to Joburg. Supermarket and numerous restaurants walking distance. Was disappointed in the coffee and breakfast, expect better from a B&B than ricoffy and fried polony. Will recommend for business as rooms was good at fair price.

Soraya treated us like royalty. Relick was very helpful in guiding us where to have things printed at quick notice. Even the late delivery of our meal which we ordered from Debonairs down the road, was delivered to our room. Our last morning we were informed that our driver had arrived early, Relick was fantastic and helpful as usual.

I stayed at the Houghton GH for 2 nights in September. The GH is great little place to stay for a short stay visit to Jo'burg. It's clean and tidy, great staff and Suraya was very helpful, arranging transport and local advice. Sadly though, I don't recognise the photos as being the Houghton GH.. maybe i did not explore enough

This boutique hotel is charming with large rooms and bathrooms. The garden and pool areas are great and well look after. The service was excellent during my 4 days stay and everyone was really helpful during the event we held. I hope I will go back to Houghton estate in my next visit.
