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!

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.
Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way

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.
