Location couldn't have been better. Lots of great cafes, restaurants, and bars in the neighborhood, and very easy to get to the city center on foot or on the tram. Rooms were clean, comfortable, and quiet. Breakfast options were self-serve and easy. Ian was great at providing local recommendations, and also fun to talk with. Daisy is a doll! Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The front room upstairs has a very large balcony.

Hard to say anything negative about innkeeper Ian and his BnB. Mostly a gay clientele, but not narrow. The rooms are superb, the availability of breakfast, candy and cookies, but always available good coffee, make the place even nicer. It's a Melbourne terrace house--rowhouse or townhouse to North Americans--in Carlton, which is close in, about 20 minutes walk to the CBD. It's also seven minutes from the city's tour bus, and seven minutes from a major tram stop which gives you access to the whole city. Ian has lots of information and is great fun to talk with.

Room Tip: They are all good.

We would like to thank you for welcoming us in your wonderful romantic victorian house. You are located in a very nice Italian neighbourhood, and with lots of nice Italian restaurants, bars and tea-rooms ! Great to enjoy, and also not so far from the city center. Even with a free BUS ! We will stay with you again next time we are in Melbourne !!

Room Tip: king size room at the frontside
