We only spent one night at the Houghton Estate. It was to be our last night in South Africa so much time was spent packing and preparing for our long trip home. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, and we thoroughly enjoyed spending time sitting by the lovely pool area. We had two rooms, both spacious, immaculate, and with all the necessities. The staff were all gracious. We forgot to ask in advance for a later check out, as our transportation back to the airport wasn't going to arrive until 14:45. They were very accommodating, and let us stay in our rooms until 1PM (check out is at 10AM).
