Reception staff knew nothing about the city from a tourists point of view.
I asked simple questions like.
Do you,have a map of the city CBD,couldn't find one.
What is the phone number of the nation carrier's (South African Airways), final after about 10 minutes they located it.
I ask for info on the local trains and on both occasions received different info (and both were wrong)
They didn't even know where the local tourist office was located.
The lift was out of order most of my stay.
"Beautiful historic residence well situated for tou"
We had a very enjoyable stay in Pretoria at the Melvin GH. Pete and the staff at Melvin Residence were extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfast was delicious and the house is a treat. Pete made suggestions for day trips which gave us some sight seeing which we may have otherwise missed. We'ed definitely stay again and recommend it to our friends.
