The Glendalough B&B is a perfect place to stay for someone who is visiting Melbourne for the first time. The location is good , just 20 minutes tram ride to the city and a very peaceful neighbourhood and it also helps that Stan is such a wonderful host. He picked us from the airport and it was a 20 minutes drive to the city.
The rooms are cozy but spacious enough for a couple to stay. We stayed for 8 nights and didn't have any problems using the shared toilets. The breakfast provided is decent with few choices of bread ,coffee/tea and a bowl of fruits.
It was a great experience staying with Stan , as he is a very helpful and a interactive host. He is a fairly good knowledge of the city and its history and its good to get this information from an experienced traveller like him.
