The breakfast menu would be much better if there were more options. Other than that, the service was excellent and I really enjoyed my stay. The ladies who work there are really accommodating and friendly.

We (myself, wife and adult daughter) were delighted to stay at Melville Manor once again at the beginning of our 5 week holiday in South Africa in February. It is such a homely place and the staff are wonderful, nothing is too much trouble for them. The situation is perfect being only 2 minutes from 7th Street which has everything...

We had a fantastic stay. Anna is a lovely lady who made us feel very welcome. she even made us fruit salad for breakfast because we didn't want cooked food. Lovely garden and pool and perfect location, one minute from great bars and restaurants. The only place to stay on joburg.

Beautiful rooms and excellent breakfast in the center of Melville. The best B&B in Melville. Beautiful rooms, and excellent breakfast. My choice every time I am in Johannesburg. Easy to find and to park. Very friendly service. And there is a pool if it is very hot.

Cozy place, clean, nice pool. Very friendly Anna is the housekeeper and will make you fell as in home (although won't have to much info about the city). Melville, the neighbourhood is a rather safe and cool place in Joburg.

MMH is a nice, clean and cosy place. The staff are friendly, considerate and very helpful. Being a fruit lover, the fruit salad at breakfast was an absolutely welcome break from the meals I had in the 48 hours prior to my arrival. I'd love to stay forever....
