Overview

This Quirky guest house is located in the artistic town of Melville, close to Rosebank and Johannesburg CBD as well as various varsities and hospitals. Local attractions include 27boxes, Rosebank craft market, the Apartheid Museum, Gold Reef City, Melville Koppies and Emmerentia Park to name a few.

The Purple View is within walking distance of shopping malls and busy Melville central. We offer not just the most unique accommodation and friendly service but also conference facilities for up to 30 people.
Our rooms each have their own feel and the property is situated down a quiet beautiful 2nd Avenue just a couple hundred meters from the bars and night life of 7th Street Melville.

Included in the fee is a continental breakfast served between 7am and 10am, unless prior arrangements have been made. We also provide the option of a cooked breakfast charged at an additional R45pp and R30pp for a vegetarian option. Cooked dinners are also available on request and can be ordered in advance from a weekly set menu provided by our favourite caterering company 'Hot Ginger'.

There is a Laundry service offered for those staying over longer periods charged at R100 per 7kg load.

We can and do offer long term stay rates and have 2 units that allow for a self catering option.

Each room has access to Wifi and has their own TV; Fan; DSTV and bathrooms. A splash pool and deck overlooking a view of Johannesburg is shared.

The guesthouse conference facilities can cater for up to 30 guests. Conference packages start from R425pp and increase according to specific client requirements or additional requests. We have a sister guesthouse just 300 meters away in Sunbury Avenue and we can therefore accommodate larger groups if needed between our combined 13 rooms.

Transfers to and from the airport as well as locally can be arranged, a wide variety of affordable tour options are also available.

The Purple View boasts a wide collection of original artwork by Melville's aptly named "Poppy Guy" and all original pieces are not only there to be enjoyed but can also be purchased by those who wish to take a piece of their Purple View experience home with them.

Our friendly staff are service driven and we aim to create a home away from home experience.We look forward to meeting each guest and even more so to enjoying the view together.

NOTE: If a search was made without stipulating the month of occupation the rate shown on the search results page is for the lowest cost month and the least expensive room. Where pricing is "per unit" the Average Price Per Person based on maximum occupancy is used for the price range comparison. A search made for Homes and Villas however will always be based on the full daily rate of the unit irrespective of the number of people the unit sleeps.
