A lovely place to stay. This isn't the normal guest house or hotel, these are individual rooms and studios within an enclosure, all at ground level. Suitable if your mobility isn't brilliant but you can cope with slopes, small steps and thresholds but probably not suitable for a wheel chair. Very secure, there are tall walls and fences around and overnight security too. Cars are parked inside without charge. Melville is magic, 7th Street and Melville Restaurants, Cafes and shops are literally on your door step. We had room three which was large, beautifully decorated, air conditioned and the bed was very comfortable, also had microwave kettle and sink. From observation sizes and facilities do vary. WiFi access was free and good. Breakfast from a cafe a short walk away was delicious and offered a good selection. Staff friendly and very helpful and the laundry service excellent. We would certainly stay again if we return to South Africa and were not surprised to find they were full when we tried to book in for an overnight stay on our return from Durban.
