We stayed in the Music room and front room opposite. Both had very comfortable double beds, areas for clothes and luggage, seating, TV's. The setting was quiet, as was the home, but comfortably so, making a perfect place to relax after a busy day in Melbourne.

B&B in a suburb of Melbourne. We stayed in the music room. The B&B is located in a very interesting house in a very quiet street. There is a standard breakfast served (fruit, cereals, bread, yoghurt). The major plus of the B&B is the friendly host Stan who gives you a lot of useful information about transport to and in...

Very lovely and warm B&B. The housekeeper Stan is very kind and warm-welcoming. Music Room is excellent, very stylish. Some people say the room is bit dark. But, if you turn all the lights on, it should be bright enough. Just you would need to locate all the switches (some are quite hidden, or you may save the time by... More

This is my second visit but who would know? It felt just like home and all thanks to Stan for welcoming me back even with the four year interval. Not only could he accommodate an early morning pick up from the airport; my room was ready before 10.00 am on a Sunday! Marvellous hospitality through and through. I look forward... More

I will never forget the 4 days I spent at this B&B. Everything from the furniture, the owner and the building itself is wonderful.

This is my first time to Melbourne and staying with Stan is probably the best decision I made! The B&B is approx. 15-20mins away (peak hour) and 10mins (non-peak hour) away from Melbourne City. The travelling time is not a problem at all because the trams are frequent and run directly to the heart of Melbourne central. As I was... More

A most gracious, comfortable oasis a short tram ride from the CBD. Very accessible and Stan could not be more helpful! Every room was tastefully appointed and the beds were to die for! The kimono-style bath robes were such a treat.
