We stayed here overnight before our return flight to the UK. The accommodation is comfortable, well furnished and in good condition. Sadly the cook was on holiday so were we unable to have dinner in the lodge but we visited a local restaurant recommended by the proprietor and this was first class. The swimming pool provided some welcome R&R at...

We stayed two nights at Melrose Place Lodge. The location is pretty good since there are many restaurants within walking distance to choose from also the Rosebank Mall is just a short drive. The room and bathroom are very spacious and clean yet a little dated. The breakfast is good and the staff helpful and friendly.

I stayed at this lovely lodge on my last night in South Africa, and enjoyed its peaceful, tranquil atmosphere. My room was spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated, and staff could not have been more welcoming, professional and accommodating -- they allowed me an early check-in and late check-out to fit with my flight times. The location near Rosebank station is...

I stayed at Melrose for my first three nights in South Africa prior to joining a wildlife tour. The tour company booked the lodge for me--and I was thrilled with the choice. The room was very spacious and comfortable, the decor spare but appealing. A small alcove around the corner from the bedroom had a table with two small bottles...

We stayed here for two nights it is about three quarters of an hour from the airport and handy for getting the Gautrain into the centre, there is also a Gautrain bus stop right outside the hotel.
