“Not for the faint-hearted!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Let the buyer beware you get what you pay for! There are no real hotel bargains in Melbourne and we had few expectations of an $85 per night special rate for a Bed and Breakfast in the great location of East Melbourne. But given all we needed was a place to sleep we really didn't mind the Fawlty Towers atmosphere,mismatched, outdated decor, grubby carpet and poky bathroom. The linens were clean, the bed relatively comfortable and the room was warm. The position really is perfect for a visit to the city, we walked to the centre in 20 minutes and caught a tram back. We didn't take advantage of the breakfast because there are lots of great choices in cares nearby. We probably wouldn't stay here again, but could recommend it if all you want is a place to lay your head and you aren't a clean-freak!

For less than a 100 dollars and close to the city especially including parking and a nice buffet breakfast we were very happy. Staff friendly and helpful. Car parking very tight might be difficult with a large car.

this place is grotty, unclean and the worst part about it is the service. the staff are rude, disinterested and when we had a problem with breakfast they ignored us and said it was too bad. I cannot state strongly enough how much I do not recommend this place, and will certainly never return

This was my third stay here. Travelling on my own, I feel comfortable and safe in this quaint B&B. It is near to the city, trams and trains. Accommodation is not luxury but comfortable. I had a double ensuite room. the breakfast is basic but sustaining. The staff are always pleasant and willing to assist. If you want to have luxury in such a convenient position, then be prepared to pay lots more.

My partner and I booked into Georgian Court at short notice. We had been a bit concerned by some unfavorable reviews but were pleasantly surprised by the warmth and homeliness of the B&B. Staff were very welcoming and obliging, the room was appropriate to the type of establishment, breakfast was excellent and the location was perfect. We will definitely stay there again.

Georgian Court B&B is within walking distance from CBD (Center of Melbourne). It is also close to Jolimont Station in case you don't want to walk. From the outside the B&B has an romantic and old look. The staff is really nice and helpful. The breakfast is a buffet with everything you expect to find.

The rooms are generally old and need a good renovation. In our room the wallpaper was torn several places and it had spots and marks. The same goes for the common room and breakfast room. The furniture in the commonroom is very old and the walls needs painting.

The B&B has free wifi, however, it didn't work very well during our stay. We asked several times if it was turn on (and the answer was yes) - but we were never able to use it.

We thought the price was too high when you compare with the state of the B&B.

We stayed at this awful b&b for 2 nights. It was terrible, ugly rooms, ugly furniture, sub standard bathroom, stupid rules - for example we were not permitted to sit in the communal lounge area after returning from dinner. We could easily have spent the same amount of money on a Wotif site and stayed at a much better establishment.
