Travellers' Choice
Hoëveld House is the pinnacle of upmarket, luxury accommodation in Sandton, South Africa's leading business, shopping and entertainment destination. The stylish boutique hotel is situated on one of the area's most iconic properties where statuesque, ancient trees stand sentinel over the magnificent gardens and stately mansion. And while the majestic grounds sprawl over two acres, including a tennis court and sizable, sapphire-blue pool, the gardens naturally create a private, safe haven from the action of the city. A subtle French flair accentuates the sophisticated interior of Hoëveld House. And while the understated opulence is suited to host esteemed dignitaries, prestigious personalities and foremost VIP's, the intimate, welcoming atmosphere will delight families and couples who appreciate luxurious living. Home to Johannesburg's financial district, Sandton hosts Africa's business powerhouses and has taken its place as South Africa's design capital. The area also offers entertainment centres, theatres, sporting grounds, golf courses, world class shopping malls and a lively nightlife. The comfort and elegance of Hoëveld House provides a special sanctuary where one can easily forget that you're surrounded by the vibrant activity of the city.

Both my wife and I really enjoyed our stay here. We had the benefit of a night at the beginning and again at the end of our stay in South Africa. Both rooms were wonderfully welcoming, and the bedding was crisp and comfortable. The staff were extremely helpful with an old-school approach to service. There is an effortless charm to Hoeveld House. You feel immediately at home, and the combination of furniture, wall colours, and original art creates a perfect balance and refined elegance. There are a few worn areas, but in this accommodation, they don't seem to detract as they might elsewhere. You enter through a guarded gate and up a winding driveway through a beautifully maintained garden lined with dinner-plate-sized hortensias in mauves and pinks. The house blends into the garden, covered in ivy and flanked by palms and other indigenous plants. We have certainly found our Joburg base for the future. Enjoy!

A wonderful house in a quiet location. We arrived early and left late but nothing was too much trouble for Andrew and his team. Our suite was enormous and included tea, coffee and bottled water. Dinner was delicious, as was breakfast - cooked to order! We would definitely come back here!

Lovely place . Wanted to book somewhere that was homey so we could feel relaxed and not confined in a hotel environment. Was really easy to come in and out with the car and our Uber + airport links . Andrew was so fab and allowed us to check in early as our flight landed at the crack of dawn! The staff were so friendly and helpful and we loved the extra special attention from Prince and our gorgeous gin and tonics on the patio. Thank you Andrew and Prince for making our stay special.

We had a lovely stay at Hoeveld House. We booked the regular room but were upgraded to the executive suite, which was huge with a nice bedroom, living area and very big bathroom with bath and shower. The garden was beautiful as well as the house. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was excellent.

Nice house, nice furniture, wide rooms, excellent service. And they covered our special requests: they took in consideration that one of us could not eat gluten, and they arranged well our stay to quick visit Joburg before our depart to the airport

The place is very nice and the staff is sooooooo friendly. I've asked for an early check in, and since my room was not ready yet, they offered *for free* a "courtesy room", fully equipped, where I could have a shower and relax until the check in time. Amazing service and kindness. On top, the place is beautiful and the breakfast great!

Lively house, grounds, and staff. Our room was amazing and we enjoyed the breakfast. There was always someone there to greet us and were very attentive. The gardens are glorious and it was a fun place to stay. We hope to be able to return again someday.
