My first stay at Carlton Terraces and I can assure you I will be back. You will find yourself in the heart of Carlton, close enough to walk to all the main attractions in this area. Neat, clean, well cared for and absolutely, wonderfully quiet. The owner was very accommodating and helpful not to mention the thoughtful gifts provided for...

Interesting little place, an old terrace house with a live in owner, the room we had was quite nice. Not all that big (as you'd expect) but with a comfortable bed and nice and quiet. The room included a small bathroom area, some cupboard space and a little kitchen. There are two parking spaces out the back which apparently you...

At $170 for a night and 10 minutes walk to the theatres and restaurants of Melbourne's CBD, Carlton Terrace provides an unparalleled opportunity to stay close to Melbourne's CBD without it costing a fortune. Of course the rooms a small, and there's no reception or restaurant, but it's easily accessible, parking is free and it's neat and tidy. Booking is...

Lovely room, all arrangements went like clockwork, however we were let down regarding the advertised parking, and had to park a block away. That is a matter for wotif though. Best bed we have had away from home in a while, and location location location - 5 minutes to either the Museum/Exhibition building in one direction or Lygon Street events...

We stayed at Carlton Terrace in the Lygon Suite for a total of four nights (Tue-Sat). The location is great being very close to Lygon Street otherwise known as 'Little Italy'. The Lygon Suite was adequate and clean with a kitchenette containing a microwave, bar fridge, 2 hotplates, kettle and sink. The bathroom was quite small, but that is to...

Our expectations were minimal and worthy of the financial outlay made. Promissed communication re access and payment was made clear, on time and with no ambiguity. Studio Drummond was clean and roomy with ample linen and consumables but the corners that have been cut in renovating the room to its current state are fast surpassing 'borderline acceptable'. That said, this...

We chose the Carlton Terrace for a 2 night stay while visiting our son who lives nearby on our recent trip from Sydney. We chose the Studio Drummond as it was a bit more spacious and provided a fold-out bed for our younger child. While our bed was fine the fold-out was quite uncomfortable according to our 14 year old....

Firstly, I discovered the Carlton Terrace, when I was looking for suitable lodgings for the weekend of the Cricket World Cup. Unfortunately, I left booking to the last minute and was unable to reserve both nights back to back so, the first night my hubby and I stayed at the Radisson on Flagstaff Gardens, a self-proclaimed 4.5-5 star hotel and...

This isn't a B&B, so don't expect a B&B. I don't understand why people are annoyed about that? Anyway, lovely little terrace house in Carlton. Great location, lovely little outdoor patio for guests, room was large. However I think they should lower their prices a bit. We paid $165 per night on a weekend. VERY comfy bed, and the room...
