About Melvin Residence Guest House

Melvin Residence Guest House is situated at 184 Pine Street in the quiet suburb of Arcadia, one block east of the Union Buildings, amongst a number of embassies, only 10 minutes from the Pretoria CBD.

The main residence was originally built in 1890. It has a Victorian style and is one of a few houses from this period still in existence. 

We offer four spacious double rooms and 2 single rooms  all of which have en-suite facilities. The double rooms have showers and the single rooms have baths. All rooms are air-conditioned and have outside doors to give the guest as much comfort and privacy as possible.  The stoep extending across the length of the quest house provides a place where guests can relax while enjoying the beautiful view it provides of the city and surrounding hills.

We are very close to the following:Pretoria Botanical Gardens, CSIR, Embassies, Unisa, University of Pretoria, Loftus Versveld, Union Buildings, Hospitals, Art Gallery, Museums, Centurion cricket grounds and the N1 Freeway.

                  What a beautiful restored residence...a treasure in Pretoria. The owner, Piet van Biljon, is also a treasure...so incredibly helpful with taxis, routes and maps. Apart from the many steps from the parking area to our accommodation which is not so suitable for elderly people, I must say that the rooms were clean with nice crisp bedding and all that we needed.
