“Quiet and clean in a nice area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

Half way to the city and Saint Kilda in the very cosy and quiet South Melbourne, this guesthouse is a nice place to stay. It's not far from tram stops to several lines.
The room was a bit small but it was very light and clean. The free wifi was a bonus. The housekeeper was really friendly and helpful. We could have an early check in as she rushed into preparing our room so we could leave our luggage and enjoy the day.
The lounge and kitchen area was very comfy and well furnished. A good place to stay for a few nights

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

This place could do with some TLC. Hall carpet was dirty and ragged. Our room was small, but clean. However, the shower had mold all through the tiles and needed a good clean out. The bed base was on rollers, so it was impossible to lean on the wall to read a book. The manager, Caroline, was quite pleasant. Best thing about the place was the brilliant, fast, free Wifi.
