Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Stayed at House Higgo early March- good value for money.
A few things could be a little bit better-
small bottles of still water in rooms
fans in the rooms as there in NO aircon
more variety for breakfast.

Room Tip: If more than 2 of you don't go the cottage unless you get on very well

OVERALL: All rooms are spacious but vary in standard. Beautiful guesthouse, gardens and stunning pool. Service is good but this guesthouse amenities lacks those small details expected from a 4 star rating.

ROOMS: I had the honeymoon suite which was large, clean had a very comfortable bed. I was however given only one large towel and the room did not have aircon. The satellite TV worked. Ample cupboard space but no hangers! My colleagues room at the same price had no view and was tucked at the back of the property, it got incredibly hot without aircon or even a fan. This surprised me for a 4 star guesthouse.

GROUNDS: The pool was stunning and large ans set amongst roiling lawns with plenty of greenery. There was no courtesy bar and on arriving back from dinner we were unable to have drinks as the cabinet was locked.

SERVICE: Service was friendly and overall good. On arrival they could not figure out which room I was in and could not find my booking. I also waited 10 minutes for the gate to be open for me on arrival. Location is in a suburban area and a bit far from restaurants and stuff to do.

BREAKFAST: They promptly prepared a breakfast of our choice. Eggs, bacon and tomatoe with toast. The breakfast spread was limited but sufficient. The fruit juice was not 100% which should be a given. The coffee was instant and when we asked for plunger coffee it wasn't prepared properly and had all the granules in it! I couldn't drink it.

We loved our stay at House Higgo which is where we culminated our South African vacation. Aside from great staff (Tembe was awesome), the property and rooms were gorgeous and breathtaking. It really felt like a spa cation. The rooms are sophisticated and nicely decorated, the grounds and property are amazing as are the terraces, and the pool area. You even have a view of the city. We thought we had made a mistake and converted incorrectly because the place FELT more expensive that it was for us.

The only drawback is that they were located very far from the airport and city (a little over an hour). If you don't care, this is a MUST MUST MUST.

Room Tip: You can't go through choosing any room.
