Great Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great location being close to everything. Scott was most helpful and available to answer promptly, any queries we had. Was truly a Home away from Home. Will certainly be keen to stay again.

Totally rapt!

  • 5 of 5

On arrival I was immediately entranced by the private courtyard - the geraniums and roses were fragrant and beautiful. Stepping inside was like traveling back in time. All four rooms were tastefully furnished with antiques - yet homey and comfortable. It was a place of discovery and appreciation from the wonderful art in the hallway to the unusual TV cabinet. Well stocked with breakfast essentials, the apartment was well equipped with cooking basics, bathroom toiletries, things you forget to pack - even a shopping trolley! A hop step and a jump to transport and retail therapy - great location! Am already planning my next trip.

Quirky character and fantastic value for money

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, plus two little dogs, had an absolutely fabulous time in the garden cottage. As a B&B we were not expecting our own room, bathroom, kitchen and lounge, so heaps of space with everything we could need, a separate entrance and a lovely courtyard garden. Also, the most brilliant location for both the great selection of eateries on Bridge Road and long walks in the park for the dogs. We could even walk across the park to the Fitzroy Gardens and Melbourne CBD.
