In the heart of the trendy Mellville nightlife. Walk out of the guest house into a hive of restaurants, eateries, bars, clubs and music joints. Great place to be if looking for fun and socialising. Near to a number of universities and other academic institutions and many other conveniences. So much more interesting than the dominant mall culture where all the outlets are national or international brands - mellville has original and creative businesses catering for the fun crowd

I like the little town environment, its both old school and new school this perfect blend of the best of south Africa. like a page out of book...the guest house itself was really stunning and warm...

review by Alexander Jermaine Abrahams


We were booked at Saffron, but were changed to The Space (same property). Welcome on behalf of the owner was a bit too cool, but the staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms are very spacious and stylish, maybe a bit too much. Melville is a very safe area. No problems to walk around day and night, lots of bars and restaurants.

review by Helmut Brommer, Spain

"Great stay!"

Fantastic location! Don't need a vehicle when going out - fantastic dining within walking distance. Johan walked the extra mile when my son needed surgery after an injury on the rugby field.
