Neighborhood

Arcadia - 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.
