The Wedgwood is an excellent guest house. The only surprise I had over a two week stay was the splendid facility, large rooms, and bucolic surroundings. The management and staff are all highly competent, courteous, and pay special attention to the comfort and safety of guests without any instrusiveness. Having stayed at a nearby guest house in Melville, I was... More

Johannesburg is a complicated place, but the Wedgwood is easy. We were just there for a week and everything was extremely comfortable and pleasant. The rooms vary in size and splendor -- one of my group was in a vast apartment, another in a small hotel-ish room - but they are all very nice. Jakes and the staff are welcoming,... More

We would like to thank you for taking the time to write a Review on our Guest House and Venue. Big and kind words and we sincerely appreciate it. I have to agree, our Internet can act "moody" and unfortunately it is not within our control. We have however replaced a Rooter for greater signal strength, to ease future frustration.... More

We had a booking at a guest house in Melville. Upon arrival I knew that the chances of actually sleeping there was very slim. Feeling tired after a whole morning on the road working, we followed the GPS route to the next location. The next b&b (wich has a rating on this site) was even a bigger disaster. The next... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Our Guest House. Yes, you are correct, Melville is of the first Suburbs that was build in Johannesburg from around the very early 1900's, after the Gold Rush and today probably the only suburb, that guests without transport, can walk down the road, to get a bite to eat...

Over the past several years, I have stayed at the B&B at the Wedgwood several times. I have enjoyed all of my stays there. This bed and breakfast is in a nice, safe residential neighborhood called Melville in Johannesburg. It is near Witswatersrand University and the University of Johannesburg. A block away is "7th" which has some restaurants and a... More

We stayed at this charming B&B while spending time near Johannesburg. The rooms were very clean, very well decorated, and very comfortable. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. The breakfast every morning was the perfect way to start each day. The neighbor surrounding it is clean, with several restaurants and bars within very close walking... More

The B&B is situated at just the right spot to be able to fully experience Melville - both during the day and at night. The staff are friendly and willing to assist you in any way possible. Will be...

I stayed for two days attending a workshop. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was basic but good. It is a small place but seems well run and maintained. 7de Laan in just a stone away with buzzing restaurants and night life. Was a great two days!

For a place that small, you are surprised about the quality of service. Though space is tight, Jake, the guy who runs the place, sees to it that guests fell welcome. Great food and service too. They have space for meetings that can sit 50.

It is a lovely B&B in the very residential and peaceful Melville...comfortable rooms without any pretense of luxury frills in a friendly setting. Very friendly staff, led by Prudence, great breakfast (no other meals available), somewhat decent free wifi (it doesn't work in many rooms but works in the dining area and front). Location is really good as a couple... More

The Inn is lovely -- both quaint and very clean. In addition, it is very safe.. The location is convenient to lots of excellent restaurants and shops. But it is the hospitality of the owner that makes this accommodation special. Jakes is friendly, helpful and it is a delight to be staying in his Inn. He and the staff are... More
