We stayed with Catherine and Bob over Christmas 2013 for a week. We wanted to try something a bit different from the large hotels and we found a real gem here thanks to trip advisor recommendations.
We stayed in the "red" room and were extremely comfortable. The room was not huge but absolutely fine. We loved the breakfasts which included lots of fruit and choice of cereals, toast, croissants,etc. accompanied by excellent coffee (roasted by Bob!). It was lovely and friendly with lots of chat about things to do with Catherine and the really pleasant Swiss couple who were working at the B&B.
It was ideally placed for the beach and all the shops and restaurants of St Kilda as well as numerous tram stops close by.
We explored lots of Melbourne and with the very helpful advice from Catherine we managed to visit all the main sites. Catherine provided us with top up cards for the trams and she really went the extra mile by providing all the picnic equipment we needed for a special Christmas dinner!
I would thoroughly recommend Mary Street if you want a comfortable, friendly and very special place to use as a base in Melbourne. We loved it!
