The place is very quite and so peaceful. Not far there is the Menlyn Mall where you can do shopping, go to the restaurants. The staff are very...

As newly weds on our honeymoon we were treated to stay at Menlyn Boutique Hotel for an evening. On our arrival we were met by a very friendly and professional front of house staff.

A friend and I booked a room in emergency circumstances and checked in at around midnight. Washington the gentleman on duty was more than accommodating, gave us excellent service. We had to leave in a rush in the morning and a takeaway breakfast was organized which was totally scrumptious! Will definitely return to experience more of the facilities.

Definitely not a 5 Star hotel Our stay was not bad at all. I would rate it the same as most of the 3 star hotels we have visited before. Nothing out of the ordinary. Not on par to other 5 star hotels at all. Service was average to poor, and hotel was very noisy due to a party held...
