Overall: we stayed in a room on the 3th floor. We found the bed and room comfy, Room was well equipped, the shower good, and the breakfasts very nice. The owners were extremely helpful and polite. On the downside: The water pressure in the shower was a little low.

We recently stayed here for 3nights and was not disappointed! Alan and Lynn were extremely helpful and friendly and the breakfast was excellent! The B&B its self was spotlessly clean and the overall service could not be faulted. I would definitely stay again!

Overall: we stayed in the super-kingsize room and found the bed comfy, the shower good, and the breakfasts very nice. The owners were extremely helpful and polite. On the downside, the weekend was very hot sunny, and the room itself was extremely warm. Also the pillows could do to be a little softer and we were kept awake on the... More

We stayed at the Melrose for the weekend and we were very pleased to have found this little gem of a place to stay. Excellent value for money, clean modern rooms, great breakfast and welcoming, helpful owners. We had the smallest room at the guesthouse and it was still very spacious. I would recommend the Melrose to anyone visiting Ambleside... More

We have just stopped at the Melrose for two nights while attending a friends wedding in Ambleside. The place is very clean and nicely decorated; the room was lovely, the bed was comfy and the breakfast was delicious. Couldn't really ask for more from a guest house.

The stay is always a relaxing and trouble-free experience at Melrose. There are three in our party and we always book the family room in the basement, which is cool and quiet. Alan and Lynn run a smooth operation but always have time for a chat. It's also very good value for money.

I've been visiting Alan and Lynn at the Melrose for the past 4 or 5 years and I can truly say that if I want to stay in a B&B anywhere in the Lakes I wouldn't want to go anywhere else. As well as being great value for money, the rooms are decorated to a very high standard, are extremely... More

Had a lovely break at the Melrose. Owners are very nice and approachable. At breakfast, Alan is very attentative and hardworking. The room was great and big with a huge bed. Ensuite was quite small but the shower was excellent. We were given a car park pass for a car park about 5 min walk away but considering the parking... More

We had a lovely weekend staying at the Melrose. Alan was really friendly and welcoming, he gave us a map for a great local walk and plenty of advice for places for food and drink. Our room was very pleasant, I particularly liked the window boxes and hanging baskets.
