Lovely stay

Gaborone, Botswana

My husband and I stayed here for 4 days last week. Stayed here previously and loved it, every single time!! Room service was really good, decor and ambience are lovely but most importantly, the location is spot on! The vibe in Melrose Arch is always fun! Only downside was the house keeping. Room wasn't cleaned properly everyday and the duvet was dirty (which we had notified house keeping about). I had mentioned this to the lady on check-out and she didn't take my criticism well. Her demeanor changed completely towards us and that was just a dampen on the whole stay. Overall, lovely stay and highly recommended.

Feel at home in Five Star surroundings


My wife and I spent five days in Johannesburg seeing friends and family. The hotel was perfect in every way. Wonderful staff (especially Bella), extremely comfortable rooms (not ostentatious), and a lovely pool. It's situation in Melrose Arch gives you security and peace of mind, and there are some great restaurants and coffee shops. I'd recommend it to anyone.
