If you are looking for affordable accommodation in Melbourne and the surrounding areas, but backpackers aren’t your scene and the big brand hotels are too aloof, then why not opt for a traditional B&B?
Melbourne offers many luxurious bed and breakfasts, along with lots of personal attention and great customer satisfaction. Often they are family owned, and you are usually made to feel extremely welcome.
From Prahran to Collingwood, no matter which area you choose to base yourself in, you should be able to find a nice, traditional B&B for approximately $150 per night for a double room. And, remember, this includes breakfast. Generally you will find that Melbourne’s B & Bs offer the highest quality traditional bed and breakfast experience.
If you are looking to stay in the most popular areas try the Bishopsgate B&B in St Kilda, the Waratah in Brighton, or the Prahran Village Guest House in Prahran. All are well equipped, in good “buzzing” locations, and good value for money.
