A gem of a small hotel at the top end of Spencer St. close to trains and trams. Breakfast was lovely and catered for gluten free.Unfortunately it is closing at the end of August 2015. I am sure it will be missed by travellers in the know.

We spent 3 days there and everything was great, they gave us many tips to do in the city. The breakfast in the leaving is amazing. Only bad thing was that the bathroom was a bit cold. However completely recommendable. Very coosy and close to the city, i would go again.

Full of character, comfortable and with some space. Location is central, just a short walk from Southern Cross Station. More like being in a friends home than a hotel or apartment. A welcome change. Personal greeting and friendly atmosphere. Excellent.

We spent three nights there and were very impressed with the cleanliness, service and atmosphere we experienced. Paul was there to help us whenever we needed assistance with our exploration of Melbourne. He also gave us our 'space' when needed. Breakfast was always great.

Thanks to Paul for our fantastic breakfast every morning. You are very welcoming, a wealth of local information and we enjoyed our recent 4 day stay. We appreciated the very extended use of our room on the last day, you don't get that at a hotel.

Speechless.... Above and Beyond hospitality! Gorgeous property, amazing feel... Already telling fellow Ballarat friends about it! First choice for accommodation! It was quiet, breakfast was divine, tea making facilities was fabulous! Cannot pick a negative!

We stayed here coming in from Fiji. Hosts are exceptional, your every need is cared for. Amazing breakfast. Great position in Melbourne, out of the way enough to be quiet but a short walk to shopping and transport. Loved it and will be back. Thank you Paul and Tish!!!!!

As the proprietor of a small guesthouse in Central Vietnam myself, I really fell in love with this place during my two stays there. This is accommodation with soul which oozes charm and attention to detail and Paul is an excellent host. His breakfasts are sublime and the dining room and lounge rooms are delightful places to relax and chat... More

From the time we arrived to the time we left, Paul was the perfect host and couldn't do enough for us, he helped with our luggage, the breakfast area is lovely and Paul cooked up an awesome breakfast. The King size bed was also very comfortable,and there is no outside traffic noise. The downside was that as we are from... More
