Have just enjoyed another week at Melba House. Definitely one of the nicest B&Bs we've ever stayed in, from the warm, friendly welcome to the fab breakfasts (love the pretty ramekins the jams and marmalade are served in). Situated in a really nice part of Torquay, it is within easy walking distance of the beach, harbour and town centre. Also... More

The staff were excellent - very welcoming and helpful. The hotel was comfortable and it felt like we had a personal service. The place was clean and breakfast was lovely. The location was excellent as everything was at walking distance - beach, restaurants and other places of interest. I would definitely recommend and visit again. Thank you to Melba House... More

We arrived at the hotel late in the evening to a very warm welcome from Vicky. Our room was lovely and very clean with tea/coffee making facilities and the little extras in the bathroom of shampoo, body wash and hand wash was a nice touch. The breakfast there was a good choice and everything you would want to start your... More

I decided to book this BnB due to its great reviews and I have to say both myself (Julie) and husband Ian were very pleased. The room was lovely, bright and cleaned to a high standard. The complimentary shampoo, body wash and hand wash were great, as was the coffee and tea making facilities. The breakfast was superb and the... More

Vicky was fantastic. Hotel is clean, comfortable, bright, fresh, charming, well equipped and homely. Breakfast was delicious and good quality with everything you could wish for. Grilled on-vine tomatoes and a ramekin of beans made it a little bit special. In the room you have tea coffee biscuits shampoo shower gel cotton buds. Attention to detail was perfect. Will be...

We arrived at the hotel without a booking on Monday 6th July and although Vicky hadn't planned on opening until the Tuesday and was in a little bit of a mess she still welcomed us in & offered us a lovely double room for two nights if we could cope with the mess (which wasn't a mess at all) which...

I have just had my second enjoyable and relaxing stay at the Melba House Hotel. The cooked breakfast was delicious and I loved the newly refurbished dining room, which looks extremely stylish. I was very impressed by the lovely little ramekins for jams and marmalade at the breakfast tables. My double room was luxurious and the hostess, Vicki, always goes... More

We have just had a two night stay at Melba House. Vicki is very pleasant and friendly, but we feel she has quite a bit to learn still about the B+B business. While it is obvious that one wants to make as good a profit as possible from one's business, it is a good idea to make sure what one... More
