We normally stay in an apartment in the city when we come to Melbourne to visit relatives in Blackburn. We decided to try a B & B. After a search we found Treetops!
A more serene or tranquil retreat you couldn't find and so central to most things. Having a hire car we normally pay to garage it, here we had parking outside our suite at no additional charge.
We stayed in the 'ROSE' suite. Beautiful decor and quality furnishings in the room which comprised of a lounge/TV, dining and bed area and a spacious well appointed bathroom. The suite is serviced daily. Fresh fruit and home made biscuits are replaced daily.
There is heating and aircon depending on the weather. The room has lovely views on to a very large well maintained rural looking garden, with a bistro table on the verandah.
We'll definitely be staying at Treetops on future visits to Melbourne. It's less expensive than our usual apartment and a lot more luxurious. Also closer to 'Brandsmart' in Nunnawading- an upmarket outlet!
