Guest Comments

Some painting had been done in the bathroom I had as an en suite - not sure how long before, but there was a lingering paint smell. My other comment about cleanliness was that coming out of the bathroom after a shower, my feet on the wooden floor were black. Not sure what it was on the floor, but I had to wash off quickly and put on slippers. Otherwise the stay was pleasant and service was great. Melville over a weekend is busy and noisy, guests need to be aware of this, when booking.

Lovely place, quiet and serene. Breakfast not so great!!

We had an enjoyable stay at the Sleepy Gecko. The rooms were airy and the beds were very large and comfortable. The breakfast provided was more than adequate and very well prepared and presented by the chef who was pleasant and accomodating. In all, very good value for money.

Very hospitable with friendly service, very accommodating.
Excellent quality finishes in decor and comfort, cosy ambiance and conveniently situated to city centres and transport facilities.


The guest house is conveniently situated to most amenities. The rooms was well structured, very clean & comfortable - good quality linen & bath accessories. Privacy & security was paramount with friendly service to complement the ambiance.
I was a disappointed with the limited selection on the breakfast menu - especially for a 4 star rated Guest House.
I will certainly book with them again.
