Company information

The owners Louis and Leigh are very hands on at the property, aided by their awesome staff. Louis started out as a musician in a local rock band, but found a passion for food and started a restaurant Pablo-Eggs-Go-Bar to pay homage to the humble egg. Leigh has a passion for hospitality having worked in top hotels in London alongside her studies back in the day, but spent the lions share of her working career in corporate up until recently - together they founded Pablo House, nestled on a hill in the treetop in the Melville koppies! Our team all have a passion for customer service, and love nothing more than to see guests enjoy their stay!
