Melrose Place is an excellent guesthouse to stay but if it's an overnight stop it is too far away from the airport . For a longer Stay it's ideal and very restful . A great breakfast is included and in warm weather it would be great using the swimming pool .

This place has it all. Lovely staff, very willing to help you with anything you need. They are happy to organise transfers to and from the airport. The rooms were exceptionally nice, under floor heating huge on suites and all the facilities. The breakfast is second to none.

Melrose Place is a tranquil, beautifully appointed, homely bed and breakfast. Rooms are set in a lush garden and are comfortable and big. Breakfasts are delicious and the service is impeccable, there is no favour too big for Sue (the owner and manager). It is the only place we will stay when visiting Joburg, definitely beats a soulless, overpriced hotel!... More
