Gaaf. Mooi buite-omgewing.

Ons het lekker gebly, dankie. Daar was nie melk vir koffie of tee nie, maar ons het die oom gevra vir melk, en hy het vir ons gegee. Baie mooi buite sitplek, en daar is 'n groot swembad.

Kind. Nice outdoor setting.

We had a great stay, thank you. There was no milk for coffee or tea, but we asked the uncle for milk, and he gave it to us. Very nice outside seating, and there is a large swimming pool.

Never staying here again.

Despite having made reservations well in advance and communicated my arrival time to the host, I encountered numerous issues that significantly marred my stay. Firstly, upon calling the host at 3:12 pm to inform them of my imminent arrival within 30 to 45 minutes, I was shocked to receive a call back at 3:24 pm informing me that my room had been given away to another guest. This lack of organization and disregard for my reservation is unacceptable. Furthermore, upon arrival at 4:03 pm, I was presented with two alternative rooms, Jasmine and Morning Glory. As the Lavender room, which I initially booked, was not available, I reluctantly settled for the Jasmine room, despite it not meeting the sleeping arrangements for three people as originally booked. This forced my mother and I to share a bed, compromising our comfort and privacy. In addition to the inadequate room allocation, the amenities provided were subpar. The shower took an excessive amount of time to produce hot water, resulting in a sudden rush of scalding water that caused injury. Moreover, we were provided with only one towel and a floor towel, restricting our ability to maintain personal hygiene effectively. The lack of basic provisions, such as sugar, and the inconvenience of having to request the WiFi password directly from the host further compounded our dissatisfaction. Furthermore, the intrusion of the cleaning staff attempting to enter our room while we were still sleeping is a breach of privacy and unacceptable hospitality standards. Additionally, the design flaw of having a glass bedroom door exposed us to constant garden lights throughout the night, disrupting our sleep quality and overall comfort. Despite the offer of a discounted rate for the inconveniences faced, I firmly believe that my experience at The Melville Quarters was a waste of both time and money. I urge you to address these issues promptly to ensure that future guests do not endure similar grievances. I expect a prompt and satisfactory resolution to this matter. Please acknowledge receipt of this complaint and provide assurance that corrective measures will be taken to prevent such occurrences in the future.

Gr8 oornagplek!

Presies wat ons nodig gehad het, vinnige heen en weer kuier van Pretoria af! Picobella Italiaanse restaurant paar meter van gastehuis en 'n moet besoek! Lekkerste pizzas!

Wonderlikke plekkie sal beslis weer oorbly.

Ons het 2 aande oorgebly en die feit dat dit diere vriendelik is het dit vir ons baie gemaklik gemaak. Die eienaars was baie hulpvaardig en vriendelik en die plekkie pragtig, veilig en 'n baie goeie ligging. Daar is selfs voorsienning gemaak met liggies gedurende "loadshedding". Sal beslis weer daar oorbly.

Wonderful place will definitely stay again.

We stayed 2 nights and the fact that it is animal friendly made it very comfortable for us. The owners were very helpful and friendly and the place beautiful, safe and a very good location. Provision was even made with lights during "loadshedding". Will definitely stay there again.

Sal beslis weer daar oornag.

Die eienaar, Pierre, was baie behulpsaam - het selfs saam met ons gery om ons te gaan wys waar die naaste winkels en restaurante is. Kan met 'n geruste hart die gastehuis aanbeveel.

The owner, Pierre, was very helpful - even drove with us to show us where the nearest shops and restaurants were. Can recommend the guest house with peace of mind.

Convenient for my purposes and I will book next time when in JHB.

Constructive criticism: No soap at all in the bathroom. Two low-voltage ceiling lights blew - especially in the bathroom which made the shower very dark. The shower door needs to be re-aligned as it was difficult to open. Otherwise a happy stay.
