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

My boyfriend whisked me away to 10 2nd Avenue Houghton Estate for the weekend to celebrate our Anniversary, and I couldn't have asked for a more amazing Hotel or weekend! From the moment we arrived the service was impeccable! The staff were always friendly and their etiquette was 5 star worthy. The food is most definitely worth mentioning, every meal... 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.

This was probably our best experience of any Johannesburg establishment. Attention to detail started with the gate security and was repeated throughout or stay by the front office, waiters and all the service staff. Rooms are impeccable. No request was a problem, our car was washed without having to ask, and breakfast was a family feast. Well done to Anita... More

Have spend three days at the Hotel during a business trip to Johannesburg. The staff are very friendly and professional, yet very discreet and the overall impression of the property is faultless. I had dinner in their restaurant every night and the quality/value of the meals was also excellent. I will definitely recommend to colleagues and will be back on... More

Being a trainer, I have been to my fair share of conferencing venues, and I have to say, 10 2nd Avenue certainly stands out. From the warm reception I received from management when I came in, to the polite and helpful staff, who not only helped me carry my things in, but were there to take it all back to... More

I have used the venue on a number of occasions recently for small group meetings. The location is ideal being within easy reach of Sandton and the old CBD and just off the N1 highway. At all times, we have found the staff and management to be most accommodating, even with last minute changes and requests. I have no hesitation... More

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
