As a group of moms and daughters we all felt very safe and were well looked after. Nothing was to much from organizing shuttle buses to get us around to moving beds so girls could sleep together. Rooms were clean.

I visited South Africa with a group of 15 students and stayed at Pension Idube in Melville. The rooms were clean and nice, the staff was pleasant and accommodating and the daily breakfast (fresh fruit, cereal, toast, yogurt, eggs, etc.) was also very good. The manager Gehard Rothmann was very helpful and showed true hospitality. Most importantly, all of the... More

We (family of four) stayed here for a weekend and were greeted with smiles and assistance. Good rates with a tasty breakfast. Located in a good, safe area. The only downside is the lack fo A/C in the room. We had one small fan.

Hello Gareth Thanks so much for the wonderful review!! I'm so glad you enjoyed the stay with us in our bohemian little suburb. It truly is a great place to visit with all of the little shops, cafes and other places of interest. Our summers are incredibly hot in Johannesburg, and that is why we put fans into our rooms....

Without even a heads up, stuff is missing and they are non responding. They couldn't even give us a phone call /email to allow us to move our stuff to the other room. We have stayed at... More
