Excelent accommodation and service. All personnel was very kind to us all the time. It is a little far from the airport and downtown Johannesburg but it is nice and quiet, and specially safe neighborhood.

Very disappointed! The stay was for our anniversary...No water or coffee in the rooms, terrible service. Didn't feel welcome at all. Need to ask for everything- like coffee and toast at breakfast etc.

The hotel was nice and clean but the male attendant was drunk on duty. Drunkenness was compromising his service.Everything else was excellent and up to standard. Definitely l will make a comeback with my family and l do hope to receive a feedback response.

We were very happy with our stay at House Higgo. Simon and all staff were kind and helpful. They were able to help us arrange tours, order dinner, tell us about the area etc. The accommodations are very nice, the house is beautiful as are the grounds. Loved viewing the lights of Johannesburg from the hot tub.
