I returned once more to Melrose Place Guest Lodge and was pleased to be welcomed by the same ever-smiling staff which is so re-assuring. The conference was run smoothly and on time with all the amenities at our disposal. Meals and snacks were hearty and delicious. At the end of the day I looked forward to retreating to my peaceful...

After reading all the positive reviews on Tripadvisor, I decided to book Melrose for my overnight during flights in Jo’burg. I had requested a pick up, and Collin greeted me with a name board and big welcoming smile at the airport; would have been nice though to indicate the price to me beforehand when my booking was confirmed .

Forget about staying in a 5 star hotel - this is the place for you. Sue is an outstanding hostess and the room we stayed in was magnificent - we showed it with pride to all our visitors. Breakfasts are all you wish for and the supper Sue prepared for us was delicious. The location is brilliant and Colin is... More

Was there in 2011. The lady who manages the place, I think Sue was very warm. Food is home cooked and served with love. The guest lodge manager knows every guest by name. It is 5 star service and very affordable.

This gorgeous B&B is located in Melrose, a nice and safe neighbourhood within walking distance of Rosebank and about a 5 minute drive from Sandton City. Two blocks away there is a handful of nice and reasonably-priced restaurants, and a 10 minute walk will take you to Rosebank mall and Gautrain Station; we took this new, comfortable and safe high-speed...

The Merose Place Guesthouse is fantastic! Clean, well decorated large rooms. Lots of beautiful courtyards and cosy places to have tea and check email with the free internet. Great people and superb service. This is my second stay here. I highly recommend.

I spend a large part of my life living out of a suitcase, so coming to an oasis like this one is a treat second to none. The room I stayed in had everything one could think of to make the night a pleasant one, including a bar fridge with a nice selection of refreshments at supermarket prices, large flat... More

We stayed there for a couple of days from 15/10/11 - 16/10/11. Sue was a perfect host and the staff are all very friendly and always very helpful. The rooms were very clean. Thank you Sue and all the staff for a wonderful couple of days at Melrose

This is a delightful B&B set amidst a lovely garden with pool, with staff who just could not be more friendly and helpful. The B&B is also ideally situated for getting around the city
