We had a wonderful time there in our big familiy room with kitchen and accees to the beautiful garden which also my little daughter liked very much. Breakfast was extraordinarily good and also the dinner we had for one night. The location next to 7th steet in Melville is perfect. Thank you for the hospitality!

Very nice and helpful staff. (Good for me as a German: A staff member even speaks my language.) Good location immediately next to Melvilles restaurant+pub mile with really nice restaurants (though also some shady appearing people hanging around). Quiet: Melville does not appear like part of a city, rather like a village. Safe carpark in lockable garage. Less than 15... More

Due Agterplaas is like an old-fashioned farm house, complete with windmill, in the heart of buzzy Melville, with great views to the koppies beyond. Details like the pressed-tin ceilings add to the sense of being somewhere in the past. Pleasant owners and an easy and enjoyable place to stay.

The guesthouse was great, spacious rooms, nice bathrooms, great breakfast. We were with a group of 4 friends and had 2 double rooms. Perfect! Even Wifi was working. Area of Melville is a bit quiet / eerie though, for partying head to Sandton by taxi.

We spent 4 nights at Die Agterplaas B&B. It was very comfortable, great location and the staff were able to help us adjust to Jo'Burg. The breakfasts were really good. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to come back.

Everything worked nicely, people were friendly and polite, food was fresh and tasty and room was really nice. Location was really good for us and seventh street restaurants were near. Mr Smith (Taxi) helped a lot also. Shopping mall was close and area felt safe.

Had a lovely stay here for three nights. The owner of the b&b is wonderful. The staff are helpful and chatty. The location makes it very easy to walk to bars and restaurants - about a 5 min walk. I used the b&bs recommended taxi driver to pick me up from the airport and they also rang him every day... More

This was my second stay at Die Agterplaas (The Backyard, in Afrikaans) - the first being six years ago. It is excellent value for money - furnished in a solid Afrikaner country style - think free-standing wardrobes, metal bedsteads, medium stained wood, some rooms with baths, others with showers, all with ensuites, fridges, televisions, and kettles. Most rooms have a... More

A friend and I met up here in June. Temperatures were quite cool, and my only complaint about the inn really is that the room was not sufficiently heated for temps near 0C . We finally complained and were immediately provided with space heaters -- the squeaky wheel -- but when temps are that low, shouldn't have to complain. Room... More
