Very helpfull and friendly staff. Clean and spacious rooms and bathroom. Located in the best part of Melville with restaurants, bars etc. just around the corner but still quiet. Nice, peacefull garden with big enough swimming pool to cool down.

Cozy place, clean, nice pool. Very friendly Anna is the housekeeper and will make you fell as in home (although won't have to much info about the city). Melville, the neighbourhood is a rather safe and cool place in Joburg.

I've stayed at Melville Manor several times over the years and have always been completely satisfied. The staff is wonderful and the breakfasts are The Best! Rooms are very comfortable with charming decor. Looking forward to my next visit.

MMH is a nice, clean and cosy place. The staff are friendly, considerate and very helpful. Being a fruit lover, the fruit salad at breakfast was an absolutely welcome break from the meals I had in the 48 hours prior to my arrival. I'd love to stay forever....

The guest house is in Melville, s Johannesburg nearby suburb, with lots of restaurants with a couple blocks. Rooms are comfortable, breakfast is good, staff is wonderful. While it's not right downtown, it's a great neighborhood and the greater city is very accessible.

Staff were very accommodating as I arrived in the middle of the night. It was clean and they were very helpful finding a tour guide and transportation. It's also a short walk to shops, bars, restaurants, vintage clothing and more.I recamend Melville Manor.

...really. Nothing to complain about if you stay only for a short period. Breakfast contains some homemade jams and only toasts and some eggs... nothing spectacular. The bed was ok but the bathroom was a little, let's say, old? Some black must at the silicon rubber but also that's usual after a while if it isn't cleaned and dried properly....

melville is a nice place, safe and not too far from the city center; the venue is nice, rooms are well equipped, the breakfast is good, the staff will help you to find a transfer to/from the airport or the museum and the 7th street with nice restaurants is at a short walking distance.
