Melvin Residence Guest House
Ranked #12 of 364 Pretoria B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 April 2015

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.

Room Tip: To my knowledge, all rooms are equal

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!
