    charming cottage, calm and clean huge room but what a decevant breakfast. Excellent location, this district is a treasure. I'll come back in Melville, and why not in "Life on 3rd" no more smile than necessary

    Service very good and helpful. Breakfast good with fresh fruit salad. Special wishes like porridge have been satisfied. Tea bags and cookies/rusks are missing in the room. Unlikely for south african B&Bs. Bathrooms need to be renovated and parking situation is awful.

    I highly recommend Life on 3rd! Melville is a gem and allows you to experience all of Johannesburg in a safe and secure setting. The staff was very helpful and provided useful tips on places to visit across the city.
