Very hospitable owner and housekeeping, delicious breakfast every morning, comfortable rooms, secure and safe area near restaurants and bars (walking distance). Secure parking was also nice, as well as laundry service.

My son and I very much enjoyed our stay here. The location was good, the staff were very friendly and attentive, the room offered a nice view of the pool, the breakfasts were filling and tasty and the price was reasonable.

Anna, Delphine, and Levy took great care of me, from pickup at the airport to delicious breakfasts. More than ten wonderful restaurants (and quite a few bars) are one street over, but even on a busy Friday night, the guest house is a quiet hiding place to get away. I stayed for several days, was then joined by a friend,... More

We enjoyed our stay at Melville Manor and would gladly stay again. The staff were very kind, the setting was nice, in a good (and safe) location. The room was comfortable, clean, and spacious. Happy to recommend.

The staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean. The one and only minus is that we was not informed that we had to share bathroom (most of the rooms had their own bathroom), but not ours. Anna who works there is fantastic!!

This is a small, friendly, well run Guest House. The staff are professional and unobtrusive. The room was comfortable and clean and with a spacious, modern en-suite. I can thoroughly recommend a stay at this guest house in Melville.

We stayed two days. Very nice and helpful people there. We got tons of good advice (see Lucky Bean) and help (tours with Jozis). Restaurants in walking distance, All facilities close by. A small but wonderful garden, neat and clean, and most important a marvellous breakfast, read to go to town.
