Feb 2020. No answer to either telephone number - we tried many times from 10:00 till 13:00 on a Friday. Then we went there because online it indicated it was open. The gate was locked, the house front door closed and there is no bell or intercom. It would be easy to leave a message online or on the phone line if they need to be closed during indicated "open" times.Read more

This place is in the city center. The area is dirty, dilapidated and felt unsafe. The house looks nice but the gardens are clearly neglected. Not worth a visit. Read more
We visited Melrose House on a saturday and had the entire place to ourselves. The house itself does not appear to have much money spent on it in recent times and there is water damage clearly evident in a few rooms. That aside it is in remarkable condition and each of the rooms is a fascinating look back at a former time when this place must have been the hight of opulence and grandeur. The gardens are as you would expect, a little neglected, but still very quaint. If you are taking the time to see Pretoria then add this to the list and ensure you allow 40-50 minutes if you want to visit all the rooms....and there are plenty. No need to take a guided tour....everything is explained.Read more
The villa is a beautiful example of neobaroque style mixed with victorian and dutch architecture, especially as to the inside. All rooms are described with lots of information on furniture and decorations.Read more
