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

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.

An excellent guest house very close to all amenities. We were made to feel very welcome through out our stay. The breakfast was lovely, also it was great having access to the swimming pool in the nearby Hotel. We would recommend Melrose to anyone wanting a nice break in the Lake District.

We stopped at this lovely place for two nights whilst travelling up to Scotland, we stayed in a super king room which was very clean and roomy. Breakfast was great and the owners were very helpful and we were well looked after during our stay.

Lovely Guest house. Nicely furnished and very convenient for shops and restaurants. We had a family room in the basement which was large enough for us and our two teenage sons. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. Good choice for breakfast too.

Really can't fault this little gem of a B&B! Super friendly and welcoming hosts. We stayed in the King Superior room which was stunning. Decor and cleanliness was 5* Breakfast was fresh and beautifully cooked every morning with a fantastic choice. From now on Melrose Guesthouse is my number one accommodation for any future stays in the beautiful Lakes.
