Guest Reviews

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!

A lovely place. I got a big room, good linen, fabulous bathroom, great service. While the house has some personality- none of those MDF furniture it's close to the main attractions in Melville. Will definitely stay here again.

This was a great place. We only stayed for one night but it was a very pleasant experience. I would highly recommend the Hillside House to anyone visiting Joburg.

We enjoyed the quiet Melville street and small restaurants. The Hillside House is a beautiful house fitted with a lovely garden and secure parking. The staff is really friendly, and we even kept our luggage before we left for the airport. Kindness, simplicity, a beautiful: it was good to end our stay in Joburg.
