We now stayed here for the second time. We love the location, very close to central Melville, but very nice and quiet. This year we stayed in Touch of Grey, a very good sized room with wonderful large bathroom and a small private patio. It was my girlfriends birthday on the day we arrived and I had asked Gladys if...

My boyfriend and me stayed already last year for 3 days at Arum Place and we loved it so much that we have booked it again when decided to go to Johannesburg.

The owners where very nice and helpfull. The breakfast was amazing, delicious but also many diferent choices . Very generous room and bathroom with excellent beds and plenty of space. I can recommend it to everyone, probably one of the best Guesthouses in Jo'burg, if not the best.

He just charged us a low amount when we asked to take us to Soweto. There are three dogs and one cat living in the house, so if you are allergic beware.... More

Very cozy place with all you need. Its a big property with most of the rooms outside the main house. The owner is very nice and will help you in anything you asked. He drove us in his SUV to the restaurant zone and then picked us up. And when he left us he still had to pick more people... More

I have stayed with Arum Place before and can only recommend it. Very nice rooms, wonderful hosts and the most amazing breakfast. The doggies and cats add to the lovely atmosphere. Will sure return. Cheers from Botswana
