Step into the Melville Turret and you step into a bygone era of friendly charm and hospitality. We strive to make your stay with us as enjoyable. Guests return time and time again to the Melville Turret due to the warm South African hospitality, friendly staff and great locality.
The Melville Turret is a landmark building in Melville, Johannesburg and was built in 1906 by Erik van den Berg who owned a bicycle shop in downtown Johannesburg.
Over the years the house has been used for many purposes; private residence, boarding house, architects offices, back packers lodge and now a guest house. The house has recently been renovated, with a mix of traditional and contemporary - the result being an eclectic mix, but still remaining true to the original splendor of the property.
The house is stylishly decorated to create a warm and homely atmosphere for the enjoyment of our guests.
We are here to indulge you!
