Nice, clean room and bathroom. Friendly staff. Hearty breakfast with a vast choice. I appreciated the fact that extra service was included: ironing board and iron, hair dryer, at no extra cost. Lower points: the wifi didn't work, and the tea facilities in the room weren't replaced that regularly. No hanger in the bathroom (it seemed broken and had not... More

I was very taken care of at Ginnegaap. It was a lovely stay in the end. Rooms are comfortable and clean; breakfast is excellent; and the location is convenient and close to the main street of Melville. A laundromat, video store, and a couple of good restaurants are just a block away and it is within walking distance to the... More

Ginnegaap is an excellent guesthouse, ideally located close to the heart of Melville. Restaurant and shopping area within walking distance, in a quiet neighbourhood. The excursion organized for the guests are excellent and the guide really committed !

I had the pleasure of staying at Ginnegaap Guest House while traveling with my two year old son through South Africa. The staff was amazing! Corlien and her family are so helpful and kind. Patrick is gentle, accommodating and extremely helpful. The breakfast is delicious and generous. The setting is very calm and quite beautiful. Highly recommended!

My friend and I booked a twin room to share. The layout of the room was such that there is no door on the bathroom. Having no privacy to use the toilet was awful. Would not have booked there if I had known the setup. Otherwise in general was ok.

Cozy place with very friendly and helpful staff. Only 'complaint' is that I wish breakfast was earlier, I think it had to do with my waking up @ 5am everyday of my trip before getting here. Excellent!

We had two rooms, one in the main house, the other in a "cottage". Both were of high quality, with comfortable beds, and clean facilities. Breakfasts were superb. Great location for seeing Jo'burg - 20 minutes to Apartheid Museum, Constitution Hill. 10 minute safe walk tor restaurants; N1. Very helpful with directions. Small cavil: parking a bit difficult, but manageable.

Friendly staff, beautiful outside area, great breakfast (besides the buffet, pick something from the menu and the chef will make it for you!), the room we got was nice but a bit crammed. The guesthouse is within walking distance to bars and restaurants in Melville.

I found Ginnegaap to offer very good value for money. It is well positioned, quiet and the staff are very helpful. The parking area is quite tight but the staff were helpful and managed to find good parking for me.
