We stayed in this immaculent property early February for 3 nights. We had the king room upstairs with the balcony, which was great for relaxing with a glass of red. The location couldn't have been better between Lygon St and the Museum. It was close enough to walk to the Victoria Markets as well. The facilities were spotless and couldn't... More

Can only echo previous reviews, quiet location yet great for host of nearby restaurants and good access for city centre. Ian the proprietor is great, not only for all his tips and advice re your stay but also his entertaining conversation. If you want to be anonymous in a hotel this place isn't for you. If however, you want to... More

Am so glad I found this B&B as it was one of the highlights of my short stay in Melbourne recently. The location was great, close to some lovely cafes and restaurants in Lygon Street. From the time I made contact, at late notice, to my arrival it was simply a seamless booking with clear entry and parking instructions given.... More

Our stay in this exceptionally quiet, clean and handsome terrace house was perfect for exploring Lygon, Smith and Brunswick Streets. The Melbourne museum is only 5 minutes walk away. The host Ian, is very friendly, fun and has good advice concerning restaurants and shopping. Ian's warm personality made us always feel welcome and at home. I would recommend this accommodation...

A couple of friends and I stayed at this fantastic spot whilst in Melbourne late November, early December. Couldn't fault it, close to everything we were looking for and our host, Ian, was helpful and amusing company to boot. Lots of spirited political debate where minds were sometimes on the same page and sometimes not which made for a good... More

What luck to have found 169 Drummond Guesthouse. This was our first time to Melbourne and could not have been more pleased with our accommodation. Ian is a real gem as a proprietor with tons of personality and useful information. The lovely Victorian has been tenderly upgraded to provide all the comforts one might need in a temporary home while... More

Cozy b&b just off Lygon Street. Our host Ian was fill of great advice and charming stories. The simple breakfast and snacks were perfect. Both of our rooms were beautiful, especially the rose-vined balcony.

This month while on a business trip to Melbourne I had the pleasure of staying for a week at 169 Drummond Street. My conference was at the local Rydges Hotel on Swanston St and 169 Drummond is only a 4-5 minute walk from the conference location. Host Ian is a friendly soul who is happy to chat and help out...

This B&B is in an excellent location in Melbourne. It is one block away from Lygon Street (Little Italy) so all the restaurants, bars and speciality food shops are within easy walking distance and yet the accommodation is far enough away to be in a calm, quiet environment. There is on street parking but you do have to be a... More

We had originally planned to stay in a hotel during our two night visit to Melbourne. Luckily, we saw this place on Trip Advisor and were able to get a room. We stayed in a spacious ensuite king size bed room on the front of the house. Despite, being in the city, the room was very quiet. Breakfast is self... More
