Patiently restored and imaginatively designed, this most special guest house offers the weary traveller a private yet homely retreat in the heart of vibrant Melville, the arts and culture hothouse of Johannesburg.

What Our Guests Say
Words cannot express how much Thembi,Royal,Susan,Busi and now Jan and Juliette make Hillside House a welcome, warm home away from home for people travelling far from where they are from who need a soft place to lay their heads. Behind these walls is much good fellowship and excellent care. Thanks to the wonderful staff. Love you and miss you all!

What an experience! What hospitality! I enjoyed every moment of our stay. It's a pity I arrived rather late in the evening due to some communication challenges. Otherwise, we had a wonderful time. Keep up the good service!
