Our stay was all too brief, but we found this to be a very comfortable and quiet place to stay. We were promptly picked up at the airport even though our flight was delayed twice. Although it was uncharacteristically chilly during our quick stay, we were warm and cozy in our room. And the made-to-order breakfast was delicious. Highly recommended.

Anna helped us with taxis, and prepared us a early breakfast because we had a bus to catch very early the last day! The location is easy: you have a lot of restaurants and shops around. The breakfast...

A clean neat guest house in an excellent location. Staff were very helpful and facilitated an early morning departure with a packed breakfast. Good security. No family room so needed to have two rooms which was not optimal.Good laundry facilities.

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.
