“Comfortable B&B in Prahran”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

We chose the PVGH because of its convenient location to Chapel St and the High St and Commercial Road trams. Our room was very clean, comfortable and well equipped, and Shane provided excellent breakfasts.
Free WiFi is provided, and there is a pleasant guest lounge downstairs. We will certainly stay at PVGH next time we need accommodation in Melbourne.

What a nice surprise this place is! Usually staying in hotels, my partner and I decided to give this place a go, and it was well worth it. Would highly recommend the PVGH to anyone. Very modern, clean, comfortable, quiet and very welcoming. Shane, the host welcomed us on arrival, and then reappeared the next morning to offer us tea or coffee with breakfast. The PVGH is a short walk to High St and Chapel St. Only the weather let us down!

My hubby and I stayed here for a few days in March. The room we stayed in had very modern and stylish decor and a modern ensuite with shower. Couldn't fault the cleanliness.

Yes, it is right next to a pub and it can be a little noisy but it really didn't bother us and we slept very well.

A continental breakfast is provided in the mornings with more than enough food to set you up with for the day.

The location is fabulous. Walking distance to Chapel Street and all the fantastic bars and restaurants there. Also walking distance to Albert Park and a short tram ride to the city and St Kilda.

Would definitely stay here again if we return to Melbourne.

Stayed here with my boyfriend for one night. Very beautiful room with a spa, balcony, fridge and cable TV on a quiet leafy street. Short walk from shopping and cafes around Prahran, as well as the train station. Continental breakfast was included, but we didn't manage to get up early enough for it. Owners were lovely, easy going people. Definitely would return.

Room Tip: Go for the balcony room for afternoon sun.

Having always stayed in the city when visiting Melbourne we opted to try the Prahran Village Guest House, in one of Melbourne's leafy suburbs about 4kms from the CBD. Presentation of the accommodation is stylish and immaculate with all the trimmings of a five star hotel. We found all the wonderful things Melbourne has to offer virtually on our doorstep. Great restaurants, vibrant shopping, amazing food markets and efficient public transport. Getting to the city required a very short trip on the train, with the station being a two minute walk up the road. I would recommend this place to anyone who likes to stay in upmarket accommodation but doesn't like paying the exorbitant prices some of the city hotels like to charge. Although a previous reviewer had commented on noise from the pub next door, we certainly did not find this the case.

...A GREAT LITTLE FIND....We had had a favourite B&B in East Melbourne for years but felt like a change and a search of TA with its silly locality systems (Prahran is in Melbourne -you make it sound like it's another city althogether- keep the suburbs as part of the cities and provide a map....of all people TA should have studied Geography 101)
Anyway on with the praise - fabulous little B&B tucked away in a great locality just around the corner from trendy Greville St.Very comfortable rooms- we stayed in two - our choice as we wanted to stay an extra night - loved both but the spa bath was brilliant.We will definitely return- the owners were brilliant , service brilliant, spotlessly clean and FREE WIFI. What more could you want....and you can get into the CBD pretty damn quickly too!
It wasn't noisy and we had plenty of parking available on the street.
