Very good place to stay in Melville. Good location, very nice hosts and great bedrooms. Rooms are very comfortable. The hosts will offer you a ride to the nearest restaurants so you don't have to walk around at night. The breakfast is delicious!!

We were especially grateful for the local guide that took us to Soweto. He was excellent. The pick up from the airport, the rides to restaurants and to the Apartheid Museum were particularly helpful. We'd recommend Arum Place to our friends.

Great B & B with very friendly owners who are so helpful in advising what to see in Gauteng. and they were also very accomodating with us letting us check in early after an overnight flight into Jo'burg. The house is situated in a very safe and secluded area in Mellville. Very good value for money.

Friendly staff showed us a tastefully decorated room with ample space and gorgeous bath. The free shuttle to 7th Street Melville to have dinner was a very welcome and appreciated add on! Breakfast was large and delicious. Definitively worth a visit.
