I popped in with a group of friends for a breakfast and to take a look at the rooms. Service was excellent and loved the personalised feel. I think the Eduardo Villa statue in the garden somewhat detracts form the rest of the stateliness of the venue but otherwise a great experience.

We have a monthly breakfast club and we decided to have breakfast at 10, 2nd Avenue.
To say the least, we can be a handful. The staff knew exactly how to handle such a large group, making us feel at home and catering to our needs.
As for the food, 10 out of 10! The best hollandaise sauce I have had in Jhb by far!
The venue is beautiful and I will make a plan to go there again.

I like the property as a whole, the waranda and garden in particular
I like the service orientation of the staff
I like the link with Old Ed's gym
I think the dinner card should have more variation (I stayed two weeks)

We were a large, dare I say, demanding group, staying at 10 2nd Avenue Houghton Estate and from check out to check in, our every need was catered to.

The staff are truley outstanding and will not hesitate to go above and beyond to meet guest requirements.

The hotel is tranquil, clean and classy and the food is to die for.

If you are looking to stay somewhere personal and private where attention to detail and unparelleled service is the order of the day, look no further!!!

Was in JHB for 3 nights to coordinate a large wedding at Summer Place in Hyde Park. 10 2nd Avenue was always a comfortable retreat to return to each evening and I looked forward to a hot shower and comfy bed. The breakfasts were fantastic and the service always impeccable. Will return for the next Jozi wedding! Big thank you to the staff.
