      Nice and big with all that you need for a longer stay.

      Bathrooms could use some attention as the toilet was leaking. A mirror in the bathroom with the shower will be plus for shaving.

      Clean room, clean bathroom, nice double bed and good comfort.

      Eating area is very small and airless. Very basic furniture and very basic breakfast.

      Tony greeted us upon arrival and showed us to our apartment. Houghton is in a great location - walking just around the corner for a nice choice of restaurants yet easy enough to navigate to Joburg airport. Oscar the night security man was very friendly and attentive to our needs as well. Thanks for a wonderful stay! Highly recommended.

      It would be nice to have a heater available in the common area since the floors are tiles and are quite chilly in winter mornings and evenings.

      the setup was very nice - staying as a family in a unit

      The unit wasnt very clean. the fridge and microwave was terrible.

      room was neat, spacious and comfortable

      When we booked it we were told that we would get a free drink however that was misleading as we got no drink at all

      Was not a great place so not much to say here - staff were very friendly

      Shabby, room was dark and smelt of damp, many of the lights were not working, breakfast was oily eggs and cheap polony over-fried, not appetising or healthy at all
