Enjoyed the stay at the Melvin, room was well appointed and clean. Enjoyed the breakfast - omelette is a speciality. Location excellent for visiting the Union Building or for the Rovos Train Station. Plenty of restaurants nearby. Owner friendly and accommodating.

The staff of Melvin Residence ensured a comfortable stay and friendly environment. The house and garden is absolutely gorgeous and assistance was readily available when needed. This is definitely a guesthouse I would revisit in future.

The resident owner/manager of the guest house was able to arrange transport for our group from the airport and also to special restaurants and sites around the city. He does this as a courtesy.
