Melvin Residence Guest House 

Combining old world charm with modern luxury                                                        

Melvin Residence is a 4 star Guest House that is ideally located for doing business in Pretoria, but that is just part of this perfectly preserved Victorian manor house’s charm. A warm welcome awaits visitors who wish to experience the glamour of yesteryear, but who also do not want to compromise on modern amenities.

The perfect location

Situated in jacaranda-lined Pine Street in Arcadia, one of Pretoria’s oldest suburbs, Melvin Residence Guest House is within walking distance of the Union Buildings and the famous embassy row of the capital city.

The fact that the guest house is just ten minutes’ drive away from the commercial hub of the city, Loftus Versfeld rugby and football stadium, the University of Pretoria and specialist hospitals in the area, does not detract from the air of tranquillity that surrounds Melvin Residence.

Many restaurants and coffee shops in the area offer the visitor a selection of dining experiences.

Modern amenities

 Although the original Victorian house, with its quaint steeple, wrap-around veranda, molded ceilings, stained glass work, wooden floors, doors, and windows have been perfectly preserved, the visitor will find luxury rooms and en-suite bathrooms, total connectivity (the entire guest house is a Wi-Fi hot spot), adequate desk space in the rooms and the entire range of business support.
