A beautiful private home with magnificent guest rooms and facilities. I was in the 'Music Room' for 5 days and found it to be very comfortable and spacious. The location is only a few kilometres from the CBD and very accessible by tram. Stan has both generous and impeccable hospitality, nothing was a problem. It's very easy for me to recommend Glendalough B&B as a place to stay. Thank you Stan!!

We spent about six days at Stans. I cannot say any other thing than excellent. Stan and his friends are very very nice, they help us in everything we needed, from tram cards, till support when we needed to consult a doctor. And btw, breakfast is abundant and delicious, Stan readies at the table fruit, cereals, cheese, ham, marmalade, yogurt..... all your wishes will be covered. If anytime coming back to Melbourne, it will be definitively the place to stay.

Your eventful stay over Christmas and the again after the New Year was somewhat of a roller coaster for a day or two. But with support from good friends and family you were able to manage the medical situation very well. We are glad you enjoyed the B&B breakfasts, with a little Christmas cheer as well. Welcome back downunder next time you have a chance to venture back to Australia, and to wonderful Melbourne! Stan

Glen and Patrick it was a pleasure to have your stay once again. You certainly had great weather for the Australian Open tennis. It was very pleasant to be able to share the evenings with you, with a nice glass of wine. Thank you. Welcome back again when you visit Melbourne next time.
