I stayed in the beautifully styled room overlooking the rose gardens and lawns. The room has a lounge section through which one walks into the bedroom. This makes for "double-doors" to the bedroom, resulting in a peaceful, private room. The room has a lot of light during the day and can be darkened perfectly at night. The attention to detail in the little bowl of sweets, the touch of lavender on your pillow when returning from a day's work and the mint in the water jug, really makes a stay here something special. The staff too was incredibly friendly, presentable and helpful and professional including chef, cleaning staff, driver (which is included for a 5 km radius!) and managing staff. This is a tranquil getaway with a wonderful homely feel and offers the best fruit salad…
33 Melville Road is a breath of fresh air in Johannesburg. With only 3 rooms, all of them lovely, this converted manor house located in Hyde Park is tranquil, beautiful and a welcome respite from the fast paced city. Breakfast and dinner were divine, the entire staff was exceptionally friendly and welcoming, the room was comfortable and well appointed, and the common areas and grounds are tremendously charming. 33 Melville balances a traditional style home with fun, quirky decor that really works. I loved everything about this place, even though I'm typically not a B&B kind of guy.
My husband and I were very fortunate to enjoy a romantic dinner, overnight and breakfast at 33 Melville Road. It really is a stunning & intimate property which I would recommend to any couple looking for a romantic getaway. And for guests that enjoy a smaller & more intimate property with personalized service. From the moment we arrived we received a warm welcome, a private dinner was set up for us and the food was lovely. In our room we were pleasantly surprised with rose petals all over leading into the bathroom where a hot bath full of rose petals was waiting for us. All in all, this property is a definite recommendation!
33 Melville has become my "home away from home" when I travel to Johannesburg on business. I was warmly met by Sharwin the driver from 33 Melville Road and taken to my appointments during the day. On arrival that evening at 33 Melville, I received a warm welcome from Jenny (consultant who promotes the hotel) and a cosy warm lounge with drinks waiting. Next morning, my clients were warmly welcomed to a beautiful breakfast. New clients arrived for a 3 course lunch beautifully prepared. Thank you to the warm team who always go out of their way to treat me as a queen.
What a fantastic stay I had at 33 Melville. I felt welcomed from the minute I drove through the gates. They could not do enough for me and the little touches of a goodnight cup of tea, set on a tray with beautiful fresh flowers, the heated flooring and luxurious towels, the lavender laid out on my bed...I felt completely pampered. The chef cooked me a fabulous dinner and breakfast. The property and grounds are immaculate. The design is fun and functional and I loved the décor. My only disappointment was that I wasn't there for longer!
