Our trip through South Africa dedicated little time to Johannesburg -- just two day, and those just before a flight to Victoria Falls, and the return before flying out the next day to Ethiopia. But for us, and from what we observed for others intending to spend much more time in Jo'burg, Melrose Place Guest House was perfect, due to... More

After a transfer from OT airport (pre- arranged by Melrose), we found an excellent welcoming oasis. Many thanks to Sue Trotter and her staff for making the opening night of our stay in RSA such a good one. The “Captain’s Table” dining arrangements were excellent and the breakfast set us up for our drive out to Madikwe. We found this... More

I always enjoy coming here, the location is very convenient, there is free wifi, the rooms are very clean and large. There is plenty of parking, a security guard is always on site and it is very quiet. The owner also is very friendly and helpful! Some of the rooms have nice balconies and the pool is wonderful in summer.... More

A wonderful peaceful place completely removed from the hustle and bustle that Jo'burg is associated with... and only a few minutes drive from the city-center. Sue is a fantastic hostess and the ambiance ensures that we will return time and again AND recommend Melrose Place to anyone. We had a great time!

This is a wonderful place to stay, especially if you travel often and tire of hotel chains. Sue is wonderfully warm and welcoming without being intrusive. We stayed for over a week and it was always a pleasure to come back after a long day out. The rooms are very comfortable and the pool and gardens are soothing. It is... More

Melrose Place Guest Lodge is a wonderful B&B place with a small garden and even a swimming pool. We stayed here twice on our trip to and from Madagascar recently. The staff is very friendly and the owner, Sue, was extremely helpful. We ask for late cheque out due to flight changes with Air Madagascar. No problem at all. On... More

I've stayed at the lodge 4 or 5 times now and with each stay I continue to be amazed by the quality of service at this lovely bed and breakfast. The rooms all maintain a homey feel and - as a frequent traveler this - is a real treat. The beds are incredibly comfy, most rooms have lovely large windows,... More

Elaine and I arrived at Melrose Place on the 28th May and stayed for just 1 night before travelling on to Zimbabwe. Immediately on arriving at Melrose Place we knew we had landed somewhere very special indeed!! We were drawn straightaway to the lovely landscaped gardens and lovely swimming pool at the property. The guesthouse itself and our room were... More
