    The Loft at Melville Turret Guesthouse was beautifully decorated and secluded. It was a lovely stay.

    The staff demanded payment beforehand instead of at checkout which was strange.

    I love old buildings so it was lovely to be there.

    You were not aware of where the entrance was. My room was not ready and I arrived about 1.45pm - the staff wasn't friendly - it was hard to get hold of anyone and the breakfast you had to wait for ages - perhaps you need to set up a facility for people to make their own toast - just an ordinary toaster in the diningroom. Also they could have advised you that they do not provide food.

    Such a nice place and close walk to 7th street. Highly secured: staff made sure we closed the gate at each time. We loved our first room with the separate bath and shower although there's no real door (just a separator). The outdoor tables and garden area are beautiful. The hot breakfast included in the price of the guesthouse was amazing...there's a menu and you choose what you want. Best breakfast ever! Staff are also very nice and sweet once they warm up to you. Helped us out a lot, which we appreciate. Good value for money!

    Nothing. Maybe a bit shady walking back to the guesthouse at night but that may purely be paranoia.

    Nice facilities. Real comfy. A good landing place into Jo'burg.

    The B&B where we stayed the previous evening in Pretoria also had a 3 star grading, but turned out to be an absolute dump by comparison with The Turret. So grading is not everything.

    The facilities are well positioned in a quite location. The place is well designed with beautiful green trees

    The staff are not as welcoming as the place and not even a goodbye upon departure. The breakfast was not proper, we got cold coffee, fruit salad with a drop of yoghurt not sufficient for two people. It appears the staff give more attention to white folks rather than black folks (Not racial at all, jus honest opinion) therefore white people this is a place to be.

    Arrived hours before booking-in time and room not available but staff quickly allowed me to shower and change and leave my bags so I was able to go off for the day, returning to find they had put my thing in my room. Staff were friendly and helpful throughout my stay.

    Parking was very poor. The rate shown on booking site was not the same charged. The room had no aircon. I was told budget room by the lady in charge and was then told that the room was the superior room when i queried the rate.

    I love the serenity of the environment and the cleanliness is next to nothing. You have a very nice receptionist in Ms Pat.

    However, the breakfast is not fast enough while I was there. Again kindly check your web page and ensure the correct mileage or distance is what is there especially from Wits. Thank you

    The friendliness of the staff, they really make you feel welcomed.

    Accessibility of the parking. When u have gone out at night, u need to park outside first so that you can get someone to open the gate for you to park on the inside.
