“Loved it.”
Reviewed 8 February 2012

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
