We only spent about 24 h in Pretoria and hence only one night in the Melvin residence. We all regret this as we found this a beautiful, civilized and very agreeable place to be. The rooms are spacious and clean and well equipped. The environment is green and quiet and we all appreciated the carefully prepared breakfast. Piet, the host, is a polite, helpful and interested person and just nice to talk to. Summing up, if I go to Pretoria again, I definitely will try and see if Piet has a room available.
