Melville Bed & Breakfast Reviews

Loved staying at this guesthouse. It's a quiet and small place in the lush area of Melville, close to many nice restaurants and bars. The staff was very helpful and nice, which adds to the cosy atmosphere here.

Anna and her team have the welcome and workings of this guest house down to a fine art, all accomplished with a minimum of fuss and a very hospitable, friendly manner. Roomy accommodation, delightful gardens and a generous breakfast are the highlights - all within easy walking distance to Melville's cafes, bars and bookshop.

Really nice house in the middle of Melville. A lot of shops and restaurants are nearby. Clean rooms and friendly staff make you feel welcome. Liked the garden with pool and the breakfast in the morning.Thanks Anna! Next time I'm in Joburg I'll come definately back to Melville Manor.

I've stayed at Melville Manor several times and it is always a pleasant, friendly experience. The rooms are nicely appointed and very reasonable (especially if you're willing to share a bathroom), the staff is excellent - Anna and Caroline took fantastic care of me this visit - and the breakfast is delicious; it can be as elaborate or simple as you like. In addition, it's less than a block away from Melville's trendy 7th street, with cafes, restaurants, bars, and shops.

We were a little concerned about safety in JoBurg but we need not have worried. Melville Manor is secure and in a good area. The accommodation was excellent in every respect. Anna, Irene and Caroline hosted us very well and took time to correspond with me before our visit. They arranged airport transfer and helped plan our day trip around Soweto and the Apartheid Museum etc. Breakfasts cooked to order were of high quality and with a variety of restaurants just a two minutes walk down a well lit road we felt safe and secure at all times. We have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation and if we return to JoBurg we will definitely be staying at Melville Manor.

I felt very comfortable here, despite being in Africa for the first time. The staff are friendly and kind, the room clean, and the garden lovely.

Had a great stay at this guest house. Very good, welcoming and friendly service. Also well located, and felt very safe. I would definitely recommend it. I had a car that I could safely park inside the propriety and had the keys to access it 24/7.

You can leave the windows open for a lovely breeze. I still felt safe. They have electric fencing and high walls for security. I never ate the breakfast, but it looked nice. I woke up pretty late one morning, after breakfast had closed, and the ladies still offered to make me breakfast. Very sweet.
