Friendly and very helpful host and well equipped rooms. Good located to Hotspots and dining in Melville, but quiet for the B&B itself. Excellent breakfast service. Some rooms with view on Melville Hill.

For a reasonable price this was an excellent place to stay. Just down the hill from a variety of shopping, cafes and restaurants in Melville and also not too far from Zoo Lake. Easy to get to using Uber from the Rosebank Gautrain station. Denise is very friendly and knowledgeable; I enjoyed chatting with her. I would stay here again!

My mom and I loved a lot the stay at B&B on 8th Avenue. Mrs Denise is a wonderful woman, she was very kind and helpful. She made her best to make sure we had all we needed and we could feel confortable and home. The house is located in a safe area and it is close to the main places in Johannesburg. The room was clean and it had everything we needed. The breakfast was so nice, my mom can't even forget the cakes... kkkkk. Definitly we found a home in Johannesburg and certainly int the next trip we will stay at B&B on 8th Avenue.
