About Melville Gap Guest House

Melville Gap Guesthouse is a modern and welcoming guesthouse that has been renovated with Melville heritage of arts and culture in mind. Located on the edge of Melville, it has a bit of both worlds – a quiet street as well as close proximity to all the sites Melville has to offer.

The guesthouse consists of the 4 stylishly renovated bedrooms in the Main house as well as two bedrooms in a separate building for those that prefer a bit more privacy as they have their own entrances.

The open-plan lounge and dining area can easily accommodate a small private or corporate function for up to 20-25 guests. In the evenings, it is a perfect place for a cosy evening watching a game on a large TV or reading a book.

It’s close proximity to UJ and Wits universities makes it a popular place for academics and their families. Situated just off Beyers Naude, the guesthouse is easily reachable by the major highways.

                          James and the rest of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The parking is difficult but James is a good driver and assisted me in reversing my car.The room is fitted with aircon which also helped during these warm January days.

                          This guesthouse is quiet, clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and packed me a to go breakfast for my early flight.

                          First of All, the owner Johan is very humble and welcoming. They prepared everything according to our needs. The staff was excellent, and the rooms were very clean. We found the place meeting all our expectations. We really enjoyed ourselves, we'll come back again next time.
