This small hotel is located in the Houghton Estate area of Johannesburg, close to the golf course and nestled in amongst the wide tree lined avenues and mansions of the rich and famous. Set in its own, beautifully maintained grounds it is an oasis where the sound of the fountains mingles with birdsong in the trees. The rooms are large, well appointed and feel spacious. Little touches such as fresh shortbread to go with your tea/coffee make a difference.
The public areas are an absolute joy, from the sofa's on the veranda to the three different dining areas (in the more formal dining room, on the veranda or poolside on the patio). Indoor, there are more sofa's for lounging on at the end of the day.
The staff are attentive and the restaurant is popular with people who lunch. The breakfast buffet is extensive and varied, with many types of bread, yoghurt, fresh fruit, cheese, meats and hot dishes. Take your time and enjoy.
The hotel arranged our airport transfers, which worked perfectly, and a taxi to/from a local restaurant. For the airport transfers the hotel provided the drivers name, telephone number and a description so that we could be sure we had the right one. It is about 30 minutes to the airport.
