Just arrived home from a 2 night stay at Melrose for my husbands birthday. We stayed in room 6 on the top floor. Described as a 'small' room on booking but perfectly adequate in size for us, very nicely furnished and spotlessly clean. The guest house is run by a lovely couple, Alan advised us on walking routes and lent... More

Returned to room 7, family rooms downstairs at Melrose to find it re-decorated and the massively revamped bathroom a true success !! Unfortunately we had a very rough first night, up every half hour with a poorly lad, but Lynne and Alan were amazing next morning..... Nothing was a problem...... "it could all be fixed"..... "don't worry at all". Lynne... More

We stayed here on 24th January and had an absolute wonderful time. The owners are lovely and honestly could not do enough for you. We enquired about the local restaurants and Andy was more than happy to take time out and advise. The room we stayed in was at the front of the house, it was very spacious, had all... More

I stayed here with a couple of friends for a weekend's walking on the hills. The rooms were roomy, clean and very smart. Our host was welcoming, friendly and very helpful with tips around town and suggestions about walks. The breakfasts were superb. The only room for improvement, which wouldn't exactly be easy, would be to provide a bathtub or... More

This is a very good option for accommodation in Ambleside. Great hospitality, good breakfasts, good central location, and a secure parking location nearby (at a VERY reasonable price by Ambleside standards). Our room was clean and comfortable and done up very nicely.

We were taken to our family room which was down some stairs it was very private and spacious. Everything was spotless and the bathroom was amazing! The little extra touches in the... More
