    I stayed at 169 Drummond Street for sixteen days and enjoyed every day. The quest house has a unique location in the heart of the Carlton district which is like a small but charming village of its own with a large selection of quality restaurants,...More

    169 Drummond is a fantastic spot within a short walk of all of the activities. Ian and his accomplice, Betty, are perfect hosts and very informative about any questions or concerns during our stay. Strongly recommend a stay here!

    We had a great stay mid-week in June. Ian was a fine host, ably assisted by Black Betty. Ian's advice about local restaurants and cafes was finely honed and very informative. We hope to come back, possibly for another exhibition at the NGV.

    Wonderful stay with Ian and Bettie. Great location and immaculately clean. A few blocks to restaurants and shopping and steps from the bus line. Made our trip to Melbourne complete. If I get back to Melbourne, I want to stay at 169!

    Thank Christopher B

    If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
    over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the
    place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to
    the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
    started their day with a local espresso. They are
    gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
    Little Italy which has something for everyone.

    You would have to ask the owner when you contact him, I do think there is limited car parking available out the back but every time I have visited I haven't had a car so not quite sure, sorry I can't be any more help there.
