Certificate of Excellence
Imagine a guest house in trendy Melville, in Johannesburg South Africa with all the style, luxury and space that you expect from a four star establishment with the warmth and homeliness that you will only find at your own home. Overlooking the Melville Koppies, Arum Place Guest House is a small private retreat, although only a minute’s drive away from the Melville buzz. The spacious rooms with wooden floors and steel pressed ceilings are beautifully restored and individually decorated. Four luxurious rooms with full en-suite bathrooms are situated inside the main house and three self catering units are available for longer stays. Three of the rooms have king-size beds which can be converted into twin beds on request. Each room has been decorated, furnished and equipped according to the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa’s (TGCSA) criteria for four star grading.24 Hour sincere and friendly hospitality by live-in owners.

Everything you want in a B & B. Room facilities and little extras like cold drinks and biscuits make it very comfortable. A large room with good internet and DSTV. Great breakfasts and friendly, helpful hosts.
