We stayed here for 5 nights with our 3 boys, ages 12, 9 and 9. The location is excellent, in the heart of Melville and within easy walking distance to many restaurants, shops, services, etc. Our room was large, bright, immaculate and tastefully decorated. The breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. The garden and pool are delightful. The staff are wonderful... More

My friend and I stayed here for one night on a stop-over in Joburg. First of all, we arrived at 2pm in the afternoon which the owner knew about. When we arrived, he was not there to greet us, and only a maid was there (who did not seem to speak a lot of English). We were supposed to be... More

This so-called 'B&B' is nothing like it is advertised. The impression we got was that we were living in someone's house, and they didn't really want us there. The proprietor had to kick other guests out of our rooms when we arrived, after which he spent about half an hour trying to get our rooms clean and prepared for us,... More

On arrival at the BnB, we discovered that the rooms were double booked. The host of the BnB, swearing and having no respect for his staff.

Pet friendly, polite and lots of help offered with any requests. Lots of changes have taken place in upgrades. Dinner is great served on White linen and underplates with vintage cutlery. Red Room is a great setting for a pet friendly stay. Red Room and Lilac room is easy for smokers as they both have exits to outside areas.

I stayed at Sunbury house for almost 4 months to complete my studies at University of Johannesburg. It is an excellent accommodation with friendly staff. Recently the owners renovated the place, it is even more beautiful now. Also it is located in a nice area called Melville. Restaurants and shops are close.

The rooms are very large, with nice high ceilings which keep things cool in the Summer months. The guesthouse is benefiting from renovations, giving the whole property a newer and fresher feeling. The owner goes to great lengths to make your stay enjoyable and run smoothly, which is a nice touch when you're away from home. Sunbury represents excellent value... More

I really enjoyed staying at this guesthouse. First two nights that I was there I was unpgraded to the green room because my heater was not working in the single room. It was great! Good shower and bright funky room. Breakfast is good - eggs, toast, sausage and tomato... and a nice fruit salad. It's also very close to restaurants... More
