The Melville Manor BnB is a really cosy place to stay in the middle of Joburg. It is like a home from home with very kind and helpful staff waiting to receive you on arrival, make your breakfast in the morning and assist you when you leave. The rooms are homely and quiet and there is tv and internet provided... More

Nice place to stay in Melville. Staff is very friendly and professional. Feels like Home away from Home. Pool deck area is great for relaxing. Bed could be more comfortable and bigger (I had a room with double bed). I also experienced major issues with the internet access during my stay. I would still come back, however.

This is a very nice and well kept guest house in a very friendly part of Johannesburg. The staff is really nice and friendly and the garden rooms where I have stayed now three times are beautiful decorated and well equipped. The breakfast is also good.

We stopped here on our way to a game reserve stay near St. Lucia, wishing to experience Johannesburg. The staff at the Manor House was more than helpful, friendly and supportive. We felt more like family than paying guests. The... More

A very nice place, that I wish to come back to! Good staff, nice rooms, tasty breakfasts. Not very much space, but still ok for a small family or a group of 3-5 people. Cosy little garden with pool!!!
