We arranged to come in late after a show and Piet was friendly and welcoming. The room was spotless and beautiful. We enjoyed a good breakfast and I sat on the veranda for quite a while afterwards, enjoying the view and the lovely trees. Will definitely stay here again.

We had a lovely time at Melvin Residence. The room was tidy and quiet. We were well informed about the neighbourhood and got advise about shops and restaurants nearby. We enjoyed our stay there and we most certainly go back some other time.

The interior was tastefully decorated, and the gardens were lovely. Our hosts, Pieta and Elize, were genuinely friendly and helpful, providing us with maps, recommendations, and assisted us... More

I was very impressed by the owner of the residence, Mr Piet van Biljon. A very welcoming person and so helpful, thank you so much. The place was just lovely, the gardens! The roses were in full bloom and so picturesque.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Melvin Guest House. After a tiring journey back from Malawi and Zimbabwe all I needed was a cosy and clean room with all the necessary techno stuff. The room had everything I needed and the shower was to die for. Also, the location was easy to get to and get out of town... More
