Melville Manor is in a great location - close enough to 7th Avenue bars and restaurants that, even if you're a woman traveling alone (and thus cautioned to never go out alone after dark in Joburg), you can go out to dinner and walk back to the guest house safely. The staff was incredibly kind and helpful - I was so well taken care of here, from hiring taxis to making sure I had the right adapter for my US electronics. Anna was so nice! Breakfast was ample and lovely (healthy if you want, full English breakfast if that's your thing). There was a fridge in my room, and wi-fi is not free but it is inexpensive. Melville is a GREAT neighborhood to visit in Joburg - very diverse, funky and full of great cafes - and I wouldn't stay anywhere other than Melville Manor. Fantastic.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Melville Manor is a beautifully restored house dating back to the early 1900s. Situated for perfect convenience. We boast seven bedrooms (of which five are en-suite), a large communal lounge/dining area with a cosy fireplace leading onto a delightful garden patio and swimming pool with secure off-the-street parking. Melville Manor has been designed with that 'home-away-from-home' feeling in mind. Melville Manor is located off the wonderful 7th street in Melville. We are very close to Rosebank and central Johannesburg. We are also amidst the universities, media parks, SABC, Newtown, Oriental Plaza, theatres, galleries and a great variety of shopping malls, unique destination boutiques, restaurants and music bars. ... more less
