We stayed for 2 nights at House Higgo, in the St. Ives room (upstairs, street level room). We enjoyed our stay there so much! The room was great with a comfy bed, and we especially the 2 upholstered chairs which were very comfortable for reading and watching TV. Simon was our host and chef. He was gracious and attentive, and...

Rooms also looks much bigger on the website than they are. These things do make a difference. Otherwise,...

Booked the cottage for more space. It was very average. Not like the website photos at all. It was quite dusty. Mismatched furniture. Adequate but not luxurious as the price would suggest. Not value for money

Great value, clean and very accommodating. Would definitely recommend. The property manager was incredibly kind, even preparing breakfast earlier then the scheduled time. I would definitely recommend House Higgo for your business travels into Johannesburg.

My wife and I stayed over at Higgo House on Saturday 18 February. We had a lovely evening. The house is well situated in Northcliff in a beautiful garden. The room was well-appointed, clean and comfortable, with a bath big enough for 2. Although supper is not normally served, the owners kindly arranged a light meal, which was tasty and,...
