Melrose Place is a tranquil, beautifully appointed, homely bed and breakfast. Rooms are set in a lush garden and are comfortable and big. Breakfasts are delicious and the service is impeccable, there is no favour too big for Sue (the owner and manager). It is the only place we will stay when visiting Joburg, definitely beats a soulless, overpriced hotel!...

The outside ambient temperature was around 25 C during the day but our (admittedly ground floor) room did not get uncomfortably warm even without air conditioning.
