we started our two week vacation in South Africa with 2 nights at Melville Manor. It is a lovely spot in a charming neighborhood. the room was very spacious and it was wonderful to relax on the front stoop or on the patio near the pool and the beautiful landscaping. A very sunny, quiet sanctuary in the middle of a... More

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.

Great place for relaxing while close to bars and restaurants. Not far from CBD of jozi. I stayed for a couple of nights and was pleasantly surprised with the level of hospitality. The guest house has a very homie feeling.

The breakfast is ample and Anna will cook just what you wish for! We stayed in the garden house in back, very quiet with lovely landscaping. Our room was a large double en... More

Dear Melville Manor, I enjoyed staying with you. I will come back, but you need to fix the water pressure inside the house. It is bad when a few people are bathing, just a trickle of water. The outside rooms have good pressure, but they need a little bit of upkeep, paint here and there, etc.

My stay was quite short, just one night but first impressions are always good. The room was well done. The breakfast was not varied to take into account non-beef and non-pork eaters. In future an advance slip on individual preferences should be encouraged.

The very friendly team at the Melville Manor will make you feel just like home. The rooms are pleasant and the patio with a pool is very relaxing. We enjoyed the stay, the various services and the breakfasts.

My husband and I spent 3 nights while we were in transit to Kruger and had a fantastic time. Anna, who manages the guesthouse, was very warm and welcoming, and even made a hot breakfast for all her guests every morning, catering to individual requests. The guesthouse is nothing fancy, but it's clean, warm, and has all the basics you... More

Our family (3 adults, 2 young adults) enjoyed 4 nights at Melville Manor in January. We booked from Australia, and then complicated our booking close to the date by adding extra people and swapping rooms. Nothing was too much trouble for Jane, and we arrived to find all arrangements in order. Just be aware when booking that it is a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Melville Manor is a beautifully restored house dating back to the early 1900s. Situated for perfect convenience. We boast seven bedrooms (of which five are en-suite), a large communal lounge/dining area with a cosy fireplace leading onto a delightful garden patio and swimming pool with secure off-the-street parking. Melville Manor has been designed with that 'home-away-from-home' feeling in mind. Melville Manor is located off the wonderful 7th street in Melville. We are very close to Rosebank and central Johannesburg. We are also amidst the universities, media parks, SABC, Newtown, Oriental Plaza, theatres, galleries and a great variety of shopping malls, unique destination boutiques, restaurants and music bars. ... more   less
