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 four 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 also offer other meals on request and 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.

          The Hillside House is a comfortable stay not too far from restaurants and entertainment (R20 with Uber). The room was great, the lounge and interior a bit old fashioned (dark oak). Fine for a couple of days.

          We had a superb and relaxing stay at Hillside – the warm welcome and beautifully calm atmosphere was much needed! Everything we needed was available and we enjoyed the stay over.Loved it, thank you.
