The Residence Reviews & Information

Use the drop down below to find out more information about The Residence.

The Residence is a small boutique hotel located in a peaceful garden setting in Johannesburg's leafy suburb of Houghton. The hotel offers a prime location within easy reach of many of Johannesburg's attractions, such as the zoo, as well as some shopping centres and the Johannesburg city centre.

This five-star property offers guests an elegant design with a lush garden, inviting tennis court, tranquil spa, and sparkling pool. The hotel used to be a private home, but now offers travellers a sophisticated, opulent accommodation option. The hotel invites guests in with a warm atmosphere that is created using lush Persian rugs, heavy velvet drapes, and French crystal chandeliers. Family ornaments and artworks dotted around the premises help it keep its homely ambience.

Accommodation

Each suite offers a large, luxurious space with an eclectic mix of antique and modern decor. Each room features an extra-length king - size bed adorned with goose down duvets and silky Egyptian cotton. The ornate bathrooms also offer a host of luxuries, from underfloor heating to a music system, separate baths and showers and soothing amenities, including an exotic bath menu. In addition to this, each suite also offers either an al fresco bath or shower or a Jacuzzi.

Each suite is comfortably furnished with a lounge or seating area and equipped with a Nespresso machine with complimentary coffee pods, as well as a mini-bar with complimentary soft drinks, teas, and fresh milk. Three of the suites feature a cosy fireplace for snuggling down with a glass of velvet-smooth sherry or port and watching a film from the DVD library or satellite selection on the large flat-screen television.

Breakfast

Situated in the bright conservatory, which spills over onto a sunny terrace, the breakfast room is a little slice of heaven. It overlooks the manicured garden, deck and pool area, where sun loungers invite guests to stay a while. The view from the terrace includes the tennis court, a koi pond and a gorgeous rose and vegetable garden, whose colours create a stunning contrast against the fuchsia chair covers of the dining area.
