This reasonably priced boutique in the chic suburb of Melrose boasts 16 rooms and suites that combine natural elements, Zen design, and African art. Choose between three room categories. Garden Rooms, overlooking lush landscaped gardens, come with private balconies or patios, indigenous African furnishings, and crisp white sheets. The House Rooms, in the property's old residence building, feature original wood floors. Garden Suites showcase oversized bathrooms, open-plan bedroom and living space, private patios or balconies, a hanging pod chair, and espresso machines. All rooms sport complimentary Wi-Fi, iPod docking stations, rain showers, and Molton Brown amenities. Sustainability is the buzzword at the property, featuring eco-friendly solutions like solar water heating and grey water recycling. The chic bistro facing the pool and gardens serves food made with fresh seasonal ingredients, using local suppliers, herbs from the hotel's own organic garden, fair-trade coffee, and pasture-fed South African beef and lamb. Guests get access to the adjacent Planet Fitness Wanderers gym.
