Anna and her team have the welcome and workings of this guest house down to a fine art, all accomplished with a minimum of fuss and a very hospitable, friendly manner. Roomy accommodation, delightful gardens and a generous breakfast are the highlights - all within easy walking distance to Melville's cafes, bars and bookshop.

Loved staying at this guesthouse. It's a quiet and small place in the lush area of Melville, close to many nice restaurants and bars. The staff was very helpful and nice, which adds to the cosy atmosphere here.

This was my second stay at Melville Manor. Very friendly staff and excellent breakfasts. Internet in the rooms is a plus. My bathroom had a lot of ants mostly around the toilet sink and shower. Needs to be sprayed. The mini fridge in the room was not cold enough and had some mold so I used the main fridge instead.... More

Enjoyed a restful day at Melville Manor Guest House. Just around the corner from loads of shops and restaurants. Easy walk to a mall if you need to pick up a few necessities. They can easily arrange for a taxi to take you any sights (spend at least 3 hours at the apartheid museum!). Pool was cool and refreshing to... More

This guesthouse is situated in the heart of Melville - just a stonesthrow away from the bars, shops and restaurants. It is truely lovely and Anna and Irene do everything possible to make you feel at home and safe. The breakfast in the morning is fantatastic and as mentioned before, the location is unbeatable.

Twice in a short time we, two Dutch women, had the pleasure of staying in Melville Manor. We got excellent breakfasts and even sometimes coffee before the breakfast started. The workers in Melville Manor washed our clothes and ironed them perfectly. We got the room we wanted, which was so nice! The room was spacious with a large double bed,... More

After camping and safari-ing across Africa for 2.5 months, this was the perfect end to an amazing holiday. A quite, peaceful, quaint little hideaway in the perfect location, within close walking distance to Melville's hip restaurant, bar and cafe strip. Bright & airy, the helpful staff will make you feel like it's a little home away from home. As a... More

I loved Melville Manor. The ladies who work there are very friendly and accommodating. Each room has a full bathroom (except for one in the front that uses a detached bathroom). The rooms not connected to the house are the best ones. I stayed in room 6 for two nights (not connected to house) and room 3 for one night... More

Really nice house in the middle of Melville. A lot of shops and restaurants are nearby. Clean rooms and friendly staff make you feel welcome. Liked the garden with pool and the breakfast in the morning.Thanks Anna! Next time I'm in Joburg I'll come definately back to Melville Manor.

I've stayed at Melville Manor several times and it is always a pleasant, friendly experience. The rooms are nicely appointed and very reasonable (especially if you're willing to share a bathroom), the staff is excellent - Anna and Caroline took fantastic care of me this visit - and the breakfast is delicious; it can be as elaborate or simple as...
