Just what I was looking for. Like all of us I had not traveled in a while and was concerned as to what I might be getting. I was impressed, all was clean and tidy, I was very comfortable and wanted for nothing. Breakfast was a good with a nice selection.

The set-up is peaceful, clean, neat and totally as advertised. My family enjoyed the stay and we spent two very peaceful nights. We have already decided that our next visit to our daughter will definitely include a stay at Life on 3rd!

A very nice little B&B based near lots of restaurants and WITS in Melville. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were adequately cleaned but rather small. Beds were very comfy! Kettle in my room (10) kept tripping the multiplug, so just used my colleague's - quite sure staff would've fixed it had I reported it. My room had a TV with some DSTV channels - very nice! Breakfast was good and I had no complaints. I highly recommend Life on 3rd for anyone wanting a nice, comfortable and affordable place to stay in Melville!

Very warm and welcoming place. Staff goes out of their way to accommodate guests and their wishes. A friendly smile every morning. A bit disturbing is the TV in the lounge, that is running 24/7! The large tree on the premises allow to sit outside, even on the hottest days. Quiet street.
