“Lovely Historical House -wish you were here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2008

We (6) Singaporean - stayed on this lovely property on 31st May to 4th June 08. We stayed in the 2 separate ensuite apartments, namely Studio Drummond and Studio Rathdowne. The property also has 2 other apartment that shared bathroom and toilet facilities - check the website for details.

Both apartments that we stayed in were very tastefully done up with good build in storage especially studio Drummond. The 2 apartments were very clean - clean white bedsheets & towels, clean (well maintain & modern) kitchen stove, sparkling clean toilets and showers. All the cutlery and cooking utensils were very clean as well. We used the cooking facilities for breakfast and some dinners during our stay with no problems. Yes, one important facility in winter - the heater - in a form of a reverse cycle aircon, was working beautifully.

The persons in charge - Ashely and Angela - provided a good information file placed on the table along the passage way as we enter the apartment. The file contained valuable information on the nearest supermarket, eateries, transport system, car rental etc. By the way, the supermarket (Safeway) is very near about 400 meters away - situated within a shopping center with bookshop - Borders & Gloria Jean coffee joint, a cinema and yes, a shop with Chinese/Malaysian food(we did not try it -so no comments).

The free city tram is closed by, although needed to walk about 1 km away - very near to the museum. BTW, the museum is worth a visit - a bigger and more comprehensive version of the Singapore one.

Carlton terrace is affordable than some (if not most) of the apartments in Melbourne considering the ensuite facilities for 2 apartments that we booked. It is situated just on the fringe of the CBD area and it is very near to the eastern highway which is very helpful.
