I was looking for quality, good value accommodation near the CBD but without the hustle and bustle. Carlton Terrace was ideal. It's just a 5 minute walk from the northern edge of the CBD in a quiet street. The room itself was very quiet. It's close to Lygon St and Brunswick St which I prefer. Plenty of good restaurants nearby.... More

We stayed for three nights and enjoyed the place immensely. Excellent location, great facilities and easy to access. Unlike a previous review, we enjoyed the fact that we didn't need personal contact to take advantage of the place. The coded entry worked fine for us and service was only a phone call away. if you don't mind being left to... More

This accommodation is in an ideal location, just one block from the busy, vibrant Lygon Street and only a couple of blocks across to the bohemian Fitzroy. We loved our time here. The Drummond Suite was clean and comfortable (although our son complained about the sofa bed). It's very quiet despite being in such an inner city location. They provided... More

Have you ever stayed at a place where you had relatively high expectations, and when you left you were left with that "well, it was functional and mostly convenient, but not memorable or a great place to stay". Carlton Terrace looks good in the pictures, but it's fairly average. Clean, tidy, well located and functional with a few little boutique... More

We had a bit of a snag upon arrival, when the cleaners did not leave our key in the door. A quick call to the owner had help arrive within ten minutes, and everyone was friendly and apologetic for the inconvenience. The location is fantastic, smack in the middle of a cafe-heavy area with rows and rows of lovely Victorian... More

Brilliant stay - had booked 2 nights initially but ended up coming back. Was brilliant - very convenient location and a good price. The owners were easy to contact when we couldn't find our key and were very helpful when my husband thought he'd left his glasses there. We stayed over the GP weekend and the prices really were reasonable..... More

This self contained terrace is ideally placed for a quick shopping and eating break away. Our room was very clean, with all we would need for the 3 days here. Yes its older, with sloping floors even, and the bathroom was compact, but the shower was hot and water plentiful. The windows in the living / sleeping area could open... More

Cartlton Terrace impressed from the street with a quintessential, attractive Melbourne terrace house appearance. We arrived earlier than expected (around12pm) and, true to previous reviews, needed to phone the number displayed on the front door. Several minutes later we received an SMS back with the entry code and room number, and the welcome news that the room was available immediately.... More

This place is in a great spot for walking into the CBD or heading out for dinner in Carlton or Fitzroy but I was a bit disappointed by the room (studio Rathbone). The kitchenette is tiny and looks like it was installed on the cheap 20 years ago. It also takes up valuable space meaning that the bathroom is also... More

We loved the Carlton Terrace. The studio rooms are not huge but then , hey, it's a studio! They are stylishly furnished, with a spotless bathroom and powerful shower. The bijou kitchenette is just what you need to make a morning cuppa' and with so many funky restaurants and cafes only steps away, it is a great place to hang... More
