We chose this place because it was near the cricket ground and it exceeded all expectations. It is more like staying in a house than an hotel. The garden is lovely, as are the rooms which are dispersed in small buildings dotted round the gardens. Meals are communal at large shared tables and the honesty bar is a great idea for this sort of accomodation. Staff and owner were all very helpful with tips and recommendations.

After touring through South Africa following cricket and using a number of guesthouses Melrose is top of my list! Sue and her staff work tirelessly to ensure their guests have everything they need. It is such a relaxing and caring guest house in the most beautiful setting. The pool is clean and refreshing and the loungers comfortable - just ask for towels and Sue ensures they arrive.the rooms are huge, beds comfortable and bathrooms big and bright. Lots of wardrobe space and perfect laundry. Food is amazing. We ate here 3/5 nights and were not disappointed with any of our beautiful home cooked suppers. Breakfast again, lovely, cooked to order and plentiful. Such an amazing place Sue;thank you for everything and long may it continue. We will definitely return.

My son and I stayed at Melrose Place for the five days of the recent Test Match. We chose it partly because of the great reviews and partly because it was near the cricket ground. From the moment of our arrival we were made to feel welcome and our every need taken care of. Sue, who runs it, is the most charming lady. The venue itself is stunning. Outside there is a swimming pool with seating and plenty of shade from the hot sun. A terrace outside the dining room made a good place to relax with a drink. Inside the bedrooms were spacious and the beds outstandingly comfortable. We had a delicious breakfast cooked individually on the spot and our evening meal was equally good. I cannot recommend Melrose Lodge too highly and I hope to return there one day for a longer visit.

On a last minute business trip to Johannesburg, I discovered Melrose Place, what a stunning venue. Sam, the conference manager was incredible and went out of her way to make me feel welcome and assist. Their dinners are lovely and highly recommended.
