We could not been more satisfied. The owner went out of his way to be helpful, even driving us to a local restaurant, a neighborhood street fair, and the Soweto museum The breakfasts were tasty and the rooms attractively decorated We felt very comfortable there

Hosts were most gracious and exceedingly helpful. Located in Melville, a quiet suburb of Joberg. Host picked us up at airport. Got excellent feel for Joberg as a city and a society. It was a stop off place for trip to Botswana

Nice breakfast. Decent bed. Good location for business appointments. Wifi was reliable and a decent (for SA) speed. Would stay over for business again while in Johannesburg. Flat screen TV would have been nice.

We really enjoyed our stay, the room was very clean and cozy. Very good sized room and bathroom. Great breakfast, the owners are friendly and did everything to make our stay comfortable. The free beverages in our room and the lift to a restaurant was part of the great stay.

Would recommend to anyone. Fantastic hospitality, great rooms and good location. Will go again for business and pleasure. Service was top notch and the included breakfast lacks absolutely nothing. If you want to stay in the area, this is the place to be. For family, the proximity to Gold Reef City is perfect.

We stayed 3 nights (18th to 21st March) at Arum Place Guest House in Melville Joburg on our way to Mauritius, our native island. David and Gladys are excellent hosts, very friendly and caring. Thank you Gladys for all your help to my wife Marie Josee regarding her medication. We were treated like good friends and appreciate that very much.... More

We felt comfortable and safe. Great breakfast. Special service by the hosts: they offer a shuttle to the restaurants in the neighbourhood free of charge.If you want to be carried to the city, you pay 100 Rand. Good deal.

it was a very pleasant stay, leaving me with nothing to recommend. The breakfasts were delicious and nutritious including fresh fruit salad and freshly baked goods. The service was excellent with attention to every detail. The fridge was restocked daily with bottled water, juice and carbonated cold drinks. Good quality soap, washes, shampoo and lotions in the bathroom refreshed daily.... More
