This guest house is well situated near the Melville restaurants in a quiet green street of the area. Rooms are situated around a garden full of flowers. Service is as you can expect and flexible e.g. arrival time. There was a secure parking place for a few cars.

We stayed at Melville Manor for 4 great days. It has such a homely atmosphere and Anna and Irene could not have looked after us better. The breakfasts were great and the rooms were very comfortable. Great location too.

We've spent the first two days of our South Africa trip in Joburg at Melville Manor and loved it. It is a great accomodation in a nice neighborhood.

Had a very pleasant stay at Melville Manor guest house with the warm reception and great service from Anna and staff. Would definitely consider staying there again! The rooms are simple but cosy, lovely garden to relax in after a busy day. The garden was a definite plus for me.

Comfortable accommodation with competent staff. Melville Manor is a beautifully restored 3 star Bed and Breakfast with seven rooms. Conveniently located close to the heart of Melville and Johannesburg's city center. Easy walk to restaurants and the quaint 7de laan.
