“Lovely welcoming place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

Wonderful hosts; generous and delicious breakfasts. Deluxe room is definitely deluxe - most enjoyable. Overall, you can't beat this guest house for a comfortable and supportive home away from home. Melville is an interesting location.

Room Tip: if you are a couple, the little extra for the deluxe room is worth it.

Great location (very safe streets which are within a 10 minutes walk of popular Melville Street, bars and restaurants), very clean, well equipped / has a luxury feel, suberb breakfast and most of all extremely helpful owners who go far and beyond their duties to ensure your stay goes extremely well. A perfect instroduction to S Africa and Jo'Burg.
