I had an overnight before taking the train to Cape Town. The hosts were GREAT! I was picked up from the train from the airport, then the next day taken to the train station in town---with wonderful advice---and a drop off at the Apartheid Museum. Great room ("Peaches and Cream") with a snuggly bed, wonderful bath and balcony overlooking the area. Breakfast we very generous and well prepared. Will definitely stay again if I get to Jo'berg again!!! Well worth it...

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.
