We stayed 2 nights in this guest house. Booking was done online a couple of months in advance with no issue. Airport transfer provided by Levi (as advertised on their website) was good - our flight was delayed by 2.5 hours and Levi waited for us at arrival lobby for the pick up. A reminder that it is best to...

I liked very much the place. It was clean and the staff is very nice. The pool is a +. The room where we stayed was very beautiful. I just found the Melville area a bit empty (end of July) and a bit insecured at night.

We enjoyed our stay at the guest house and have no complaints. It's clean and the staff is friendly. I especially appriciated that it is just around the corner to 7th street in Melville with lots of resturants, bars and shops.

I stayed in Joburg for a conference and was happy that I looked for my own accommodation. The Guest House clean and nicely furnished rooms. Staff is very friendly. They serve a very nice breakfast. The garden allows you to forget about hectic life for a moment.

We stayed at Melville Manor at the end of April and beginning of May. The room was clean and the mattress was comfortable with good duvets (i.e not too heavy). There was a nice bathroom with plenty of hot water. The breakfast was simple but good. We felt that the staff were concerned about our safety and stayed up to...

I stayed at the guest house for almost two weeks this June. My favorite part was the gardens which was small but very well kept with lovely flowers and bushes. There was also a decent sized pool where you could sit and relax. The rooms were clean, tidy and a decent size with a kettle. All the staff (and the...

Melville Manor Guest House is nice cozy place to stay but one has to be very aware of one's surroundings, although a good effort has been made by the owners to make it reasonably secure. There is a rather trendy street with bars & eating places just around the corner from the Guesthouse however, it is a risk to be...
