Grateful for the outstanding service, clean, relaxing and comfortable rooms. We felt cared for and looked after throughout our short stay. Would highly recommend for families or singles. Great, safe location near Melville, and convient to local shops. We all appreciated the extra care when our travel plans had to change and we were forced to stay on for a... More

We were locked out of the B&B after coming from a confrence and had to sleep in the car!!. We could only get in at 5am when the security arrived. The owner didnt even apologise for the inconvinience. The owner said she would arrange a refund however, weeks later still no refund! Very unprofessional and unreliable.

In a nice, safe spot in Melville. Walking distance to great eateries and local shops. Beautiful spacious room, well-furnished in an eclectic style, with great amenities. Security was present at the gate overnight which we really appreciated. The staff member who looked after us was lovely but always seemed flustered and distracted. We weren't offered hot breakfast even though it... More

Secure and Quiet. It is close to Wits. However, they use old style/theme for the rooms - the floor is wooden and the bathroom does not have a door. The internet sometimes refused to work or connect and it was frustrating.

I stayed there for one night with my husband and it was lovely. We arrived mid-morning straight from the airport and gave us our room straight away, despite the early arrival. The bathroom in the private little back yard, with glass walls - absolute #bathroomgoals.

2 things brought my rating down. It says breakfast included. Instead it should say limited breakfast. I am a light sleeper. Late at night as well as early morning, people are walking around. With wooden floors. Noisy. Check was also too long. It took at least 15 min. So I missed my restaurant reservation.

Met my expectations nice rooms with friendly staff. I suggest to have a sign visible maybe d leaves to be cut from d tree. Continental breakfast doesn't do much help if possible change it. I can recommend d place.

Booked last minute for an overnight stay and it was lovely. After a long bus journey it was just what I needed! Clean and fresh rooms, well stocked minibar, warm friendly greeting. Location is perfect with plenty of local bars and restaurants and it's only a short taxi ride to the centre of Joburg. Breakfast in the morning was fairly... More

Excellent place to stay. Very clean. Staff very attentive. Rooms were modern and had television. Great area for restaurants. I would recommend this place to anyone choosing to come to Joburg. Breakfast was included as well.
