The staff of Melvin Residence ensured a comfortable stay and friendly environment. The house and garden is absolutely gorgeous and assistance was readily available when needed. This is definitely a guesthouse I would revisit in future.

It was a lovely experience to stay at this guest house. The room was tidy, spacious and clean.The parking area for the car was safe. The owners are very helpful and kind. The breakfast is also lovely. I had to arrange for a late check-in and that was also done very professional.

Our stay was great, lovely quiet venue, clean rooms, tasty breakfast, with an attentive host. Lovely garden with numerous trees and birds. We had two rooms as we were bringing family for medical treatment and it was close to hospital.

I had a wonderful stay, although it was just one night, I had a good rest. Oom Piet's welcome was amazing. I would recommend the place to anyone. I have found my home away from home in PTA. Thank you!

It is a quiet place and would best serve a writer looking for a place to do his writing. My bed was comfortable and the sheets were clean. I loved the plants outside, they ensure the air is fresh. I was frightened by the owners bid dog. I am scared of dos though.

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.
