This guesthouse is situated in the heart of Melville - just a stonesthrow away from the bars, shops and restaurants. It is truely lovely and Anna and Irene do everything possible to make you feel at home and safe. The breakfast in the morning is fantatastic and as mentioned before, the location is unbeatable.

Twice in a short time we, two Dutch women, had the pleasure of staying in Melville Manor. We got excellent breakfasts and even sometimes coffee before the breakfast started. The workers in Melville Manor washed our clothes and ironed them perfectly. We got the room we wanted, which was so nice! The room was spacious with a large double bed,... More

After camping and safari-ing across Africa for 2.5 months, this was the perfect end to an amazing holiday. A quite, peaceful, quaint little hideaway in the perfect location, within close walking distance to Melville's hip restaurant, bar and cafe strip. Bright & airy, the helpful staff will make you feel like it's a little home away from home. As a... More

I loved Melville Manor. The ladies who work there are very friendly and accommodating. Each room has a full bathroom (except for one in the front that uses a detached bathroom). The rooms not connected to the house are the best ones. I stayed in room 6 for two nights (not connected to house) and room 3 for one night... More

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...

very nice and quiet place in an interesting neighbourhood with a lot of restaurants, galleries and shops in walking distance. We stayed in a clean room with direct access to the garden. A good place to start a trip in Southafrica.

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... More

I am coming back to this place for years now and can truly recommend it. Rooms are good value, they are clean and nice. Staff is friendly, breakfast is great, pool always nice to dip in. The owner real friendly and helpful. Restaurants are just around the corner as are some nice bars
