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

On arrival at the Melba House Hotel, I was immediately impressed by the beautifully furnised hotel in the perfect location, close to Railway Station and with easy walking distance to the town and harbour.
