We were visiting our son and family , who were on sabbatical from the US, and staying at University of Melbourne, and we wanted a good b + b near to them. We found 169 Drummond through Trip Advisor. It looked good on all counts and we phoned them up. It turned out that the date we were arriving was... More

Clean, filled with character. Close to everything yet nestled in a quiet road away from the hustle and bustle happening just one block down in Little Italy. Walking distance from everything. Close to public transport. It is a fantastic place. We will be back. The owner very sweet and gives good tips on where to go in Melbourne. Place represents... More

Home away from home - it was always lovely to get back here after a long day exploring and sight seeing. Warm, cosy, comfortable, clean, quiet and welcoming. Ian is very friendly but he also gives you your space. Convenient location. I would definitely recommend this property to everyone.

My friend Peter and I(Michael) stayed here for 4 days in February 2015. Ian and Daisy(his dog) were very gracious hosts. Ian is very welcoming and his home is very nice and clean(basically immaculate) with all of the amenities which made our visit to Melbourne even more enjoyable. I would definitely stay with Ian and Daisy again and I would... More

Highly recommend this B&B for a lovely home away from home experience of Melbourne. I stayed initially for work and then an extra couple of days to sightsee. Ian was extremely helpful in giving me travel tips and suggestions on places to eat. The location is very central and loved the ease of catching a tram nearby.

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...
