Verified reviewexcellent

Even better than I thought. I presented my make-up workshop at Life on 3rd Guesthouse in Melville and it is even better than I thought as I only saw it in pictures. The guesthouse's conferencing venue is perfect for small workshops and functions. The guesthouse itself is private, spacious and has lots of natural light. There is security close by so I had a sense of safety. The food and refreshments were great and the staff were willing to accommodate particular dietary needs. I had asked for "make-up friendly" food and that is what I got. I'm very glad that I chose this venue and I will definitely be having more workshops and other events there in future. The venue was good value for money. Particular thanks to Bernard and Lydia for their friendly, helpful service.
