Melvin Residence is a five star guest house with warm hospitality and beautiful furnishings. The manor house has a heritage plaque outside and is part of South African history. The location is excellent, close to Loftus rugby grounds and parliament buildings.

We stayed for 8 nights in May 2016. PROS: * Very friendly owner (Piet). * Good staff. * Location is nearby restaurants and attractions, or just a short $2 Uber ride away. * Quiet tree-lined residential area near Embassies. * Felt very safe. * Nearby grocery store, short walk away. * Room had everything we need: fridge, microwave, kettle, glassware,...

We had a lovely night at Melvin Residence. I especially enjoyed the extra big double bed and generous supply of crisp white pillows! My favourite! A beautiful house and we could definitely have stayed a little longer!

Thank you for the wonderful stay. This was literally like a home away from home. I felt welcome from the moment that the owner met me at my car until the moment that I left. I would definitely recommend this guest house to anyone.

This is a wonderful venue if the comfort of the bed, privacy and a quiet, but central, environment matters. The service was friendly and good while a great breakfast added to the value. Melvin Residence is a beautiful historic property within walking distance to the Union Buildings.
