2nd Avenue Houghton Estate
With just 14 rooms the affordably grand Houghton Estate, reminiscent of an English country house, is a true boutique hotel. Beloved of international luminaries ranging from Sir Richard Branson to Kofi Annan the hotel is found in the wealthy suburb of Houghton,
home to Nelson Mandela and many of Jo’burg’s movers and shakers. The classic interior décor is suitably refined, with comfortable bedrooms, intimate public spaces and a wide veranda opening up onto the verdant gardens.
A small kitchen caters to guests providing breakfast, dinner and light lunches on request; while those in need of a drink, if the free soft drink mini bar won’t suffice, can retire to the cocktail bar or explore the well-stocked wine cellar. The discreet conference facilities
