Somewhere between the pages of a design magazine and a family home from childhood you’ll find The Hillside House. 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. The seven airy rooms are styled simply yet elegantly, with heavenly beds and sumptuous en-suite bathrooms.
Downstairs is where you get a real sense of contemporary loft design meets old Johannesburg charm as you take breakfast in the dining room, overlooking our indigenous garden. We can point you towards a myriad of experiences, from live music to fine dining. Or you could stay in for the night and enjoy high-speed wireless Internet and satellite television in your room.
Welcome to The Hillside House - you won’t believe the view from up here.
What Our Guests Say
The Hillside House is a lovely, amenable, peaceful, and comfortable stay. My room was clean and pleasant, and the staff is friendly and attentive. I stayed at the Hillside House with a large group, each with their own rooms, and Ann, the general manager, was very accommodating. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and I would happily book again in the future.
A nice house with good management. A quick uber ride or drive to 7th in Melville.
