We stayed in Melville for a night and had a great time. We went to a few bars and restaurants, we walked around and felt completely safe, even at night. My personal highlight is Pablo Eggs-go-Bar for breakfast or brunch.

In general Melville has many different kinds of bars, restaurants and all sorts of entertainment...in one package...so one should find whatever you want and or need...if it fails after all,I recommend trying Yeoville!!

I spent a couple of hours walking around Melville during a visit to Johannesburg. There are some nice shops, including the well known and interesting 27 Boxes. There are also a number of nice restaurants and bars. It is a nice area to stroll and...More

I have eaten here several time during the day, but I am unable to comment about what it is like during the evening. Parking is a bit tight but plenty of places to eat and drink.

Response from Joyce Wilfred D | Reviewed this property |
My husband and I stayed in Melville in a B & B Lucky Bean and we were most satisfied. Even though it is not a hotel, we would highly recommend this B & B. Transportation was easy with tuk tuk to visit around.
