Had a wonderful stay at this lovely lodge, bed and breakfast on a quiet street in Johannesburg. Room is comfortable and attractive with all amenities. Breakfast is delicious and multi-faceted. Lovely swimming pool in a garden setting. You can walk to neighborhood restaurants.

We stayed here for two nights it is about three quarters of an hour from the airport and handy for getting the Gautrain into the centre, there is also a Gautrain bus stop right outside the hotel. It took us some time to work out which bus we needed from the station but with some help we managed it. Sue...

It's a stately old dame, very well maintained and set in beautiful gardens, the pool was gorgeous...maybe next time. The security guard that met...

More importantly, their service was amazing - every need was catered to - even helping me out with a driver while I had to run around Joburg for wedding activities! The staff was...

Spent 3 terrific nights there. Convenient neighborhood, safe and very comfortable! Delicious breakfasts and excellent personal service. The owner and staff went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed, from wall plugs to excellent drivers. For us it was much better than a hotel .

Melrose Place is an excellent guesthouse to stay but if it's an overnight stop it is too far away from the airport . For a longer Stay it's ideal and very restful . A great breakfast is included and in warm weather it would be great using the swimming pool .

This place has it all. Lovely staff, very willing to help you with anything you need. They are happy to organise transfers to and from the airport. The rooms were exceptionally nice, under floor heating huge on suites and all the facilities. The breakfast is second to none.
