“Pleasant stay in large suite of a charming period house”

We (two adults and small child) stayed for three nights in two spacious adjoining rooms. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable with good sheets. Extra pillows and blankets available in the ample sized cupboards. For most of our stay, the weather in Melbourne was atrocious, windy and rainy. The central heating (radiator in each room) at the B&B kept us snug and toasty though. We appreciated having the wireless internet (for which there was no additional charge) and a TV in each room. The lack of attention to small details, like providing teaspoons and fresh milk each day for making tea/coffee in the room, should be remedied.

Breakfast was provided downstairs in the kitchen, seated with other guests, around a large dining table. It did not match the range of foods pictured on the B&B's website. There were only two cereals to choose from (neither of which appealed to children), no pastries or muffins, yogurt or fresh fruit. However, every second day, the manager baked a loaf of wholegrain bread and juiced fresh fruit. The spreads (two jams and peanut butter) supplied were limited and not topped up during our stay. Freshly brewed coffee and a cooked breakfast was provided on request (included in the nightly tariff).

The manager was friendly and chatty and happy to give directions and suggest local cafes and restaurants.

Although located across the road from a tall public housing apartment block, it was very quiet inside. The B&B is only a couple of blocks from Bridge Road, the famous shopping strip and tram stops. It is easy to get to the MCG where we went to watch an AFL game. The walk to Fitzroy Gardens and the city centre (at a moderate pace) takes between 20-30 minutes.

We loved our stay at Highett, the advertised pictures give a true indication of the building and furnishings. The place was warm and clean, and had the softest douners that anyone could wish for, I almost would not like to recommend this place as it would be a great secret to keep. John was very helpful and caring toward the needs of our two year old daughter, it was a pleasure to stay in such luxury with such great hosts....
