Stan is a friendly,very hospitable and generous host. He made our stay very comfortable, providing helpful advice about transport and local restaurants, which are numerous and interesting and only a short walk away. A very convenient location close to the city of Melbourne. We will certainly return here if our travels take us this way again. We could recommend for...

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. He provided a generous breakfast of cereals, toast, croissants, yogurt, fresh fruit, tea, coffee...

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...

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...

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. Stan Turton, who runs the place is really nice and does everything he can to make your stay as comfortable as possible. He makes spectacular poached eggs, and gives you a hearty breakfast before you set...

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...
