The rooms are very spacious, with adequate place for working, and there is good Wi-Fi. The rooms all seem to be heated, either by gas fire or, in the case...

Had dinner here with my family last night. I ordered the eye fillet steak. The food was delicious, service was amazing. I would highly recommend! P.S. Try the sticky date pudding. You won't regret it!

There was nothing to fault my stay at 10 2nd Avenue. The room was recently renovated and finished perfectly. Underfloor heating was a nice touch. Breakfast was extensive and incredible. Would highly recommend.

Excellent weekend getaway. Friendly staff and great service. The fireplace was welcoming on a cold winters night. Breakfast was five star. Will most certainly visit again. Easy access to Sandton, Killarney and Melrose arch from this location. Airport is also not far. Shuttle bus available for guests.

I have stayed here on two occasions. Both of which have been good experiences. It is very centrally located, so accessing both the old city (New Town Precinct) and Sandton City is made easy. The house is situated in a beautiful garden and I have on both occasions made use of this setting for breakfast meetings.
