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

Leave your worries behind - no worries - as they say in Australia. Plan to stay at 169 Drummond Street in the heart of Carlton, a place in the beautiful and historic district of Melbourne. Ian Johnston, the proprietor of this B&B, may greet you at the door as he returns from a walk about the neighborhood. He will likely... More

Fab location, super host, lovely little dog Daisy, and great room. Ian has great recommendations for things to do and see, and is there when you need him but not at all in your face. Brekky is a self serve which is really nice, as you can grab it when you feel like it, just like at home. The room... More

Stayed at 169 Drummond this February for almost 2 weeks. This place is terrific. Great location near Carlton Gardens, the city and good restaurants. Ian, the host is welcoming, friendly, and makes great coffee. We stayed in a room with a small garden out back. The beds were comfortable, the place was immaculate and even though it was 107 degrees... More
