What a joyful experience to stay at this unique Guest House near the stately Union Buildings! Peaceful and a almost romantic old-world feeling and definitely a memorable stay to be repeated in future!

A spir of the moment thing brought me to this place. Nice gardens and awesome hosts. Very very yummy breakfast and the accomodation is just as awesome. Very close to Union Buildings and Loftus. Basically anything. Use the Gautrain to Pretoria station and Uber to Melvin Residence. It was an official accomodation partner for the 2010 FIFA world cup and the safety and standards are still maintained. For business or pleasure, Melvin is just the place you want to rest your head after a busy day. Pay them a visit. Well worth it!

Melvin House is by far one of the best guest houses that I have ever experienced. The house is a historical monument on its own and the hospitality superb. I stayed there on my own while my Husband was hospitalized close by. I felt safe and welcome, enjoyed the beautiful garden and made new friends. I will definitely recommend this place to friends and family.
