This is my first time to Melbourne and staying with Stan is probably the best decision I made! The B&B is approx. 15-20mins away (peak hour) and 10mins (non-peak hour) away from Melbourne City. The travelling time is not a problem at all because the trams are frequent and run directly to the heart of Melbourne central. As I was... More

A most gracious, comfortable oasis a short tram ride from the CBD. Very accessible and Stan could not be more helpful! Every room was tastefully appointed and the beds were to die for! The kimono-style bath robes were such a treat.

Glendalough B&B is the perfect place for your Melbourne stay when you are looking for - small B&B with beautiful decorated rooms and excellent service - quiet location in residential area - free of charge parking in front of the B&B - public transport at only 5 min walk from the B&B; this tram takes you directly into the Melbourne...

I had a great time staying with Stan for my brief visit to Melbourne. Glendalough B&B is in peaceful quiet neighbourhood. Getting to the city centre is easy, just hop on a tram - kitted out with a public transport card by Stan - a ride of 20 minutes gets you straight to Flinder's station. Stan is a wonderful and...

we only stayed three night in Melbourne and we found this juwel in Melbourne. The best thing about this B&B is your host Stan. He picks you up from the airport, organizes basically everything and gives you very good advices what to do in Melbourne. He serves you a terrific breakfast. The second best thing is the price for the... More

We had a wonderful time on two tours ( Great Ocean Road & Yarra Valley Wine ttasting) that he had recommended. He went above the call of duty driving us for an... More

Staying at Glendalough should be one of the main Melbourne attractions! Of course, as a B&B it has none of the sterile, anonymous features of a hotel, but even as a B&B it is so special because of Stan. He really " knocks himself out" to be a terrific host - pick ups from the airport for a small fee,... More

The Glendalough B&B has been a perfect accomodation for my stay in Melbourne. The house is beautiful, always clean and warm. The location is very near to the centre of the city, but not too noisy as a big city centre can be....a lot of green and nice neighbourghood. However, the real strenght of this B&B is its host, Stan,... More

This was our first stop for our honeymoon. For a small fee Stan collected us from the airport which is 20-30 minute drive depending on traffic even with our flight being delayed by an hour,. We stayed in 'The Piano' room which had a Grand Piano and beautiful decorative ceilings. Breakfast was cereals, fruit, yogurt and selection of breads also... More
