Response from IanJ3053, Owner at 169 Drummond StreetResponded 1 April 2018
Thankyou for your warm review. We loved having you stay with us.
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!
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
they do it "back home" and maybe even a bit of amore. The number of gelato choices will leave you in a state of indecision and wide footpaths, big awnings and a sea of packed tables makes this al fresco dining experience a continental buzz. Even if you’re not eating, it’s worth the stroll just for the people-watching, which, of course, is an Italian tradition.
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.
