Stayed as a couple for 5 nights in early July. Couldn't fault any aspect of the stay, quiet and clean rooms, comfortable bed, great breakfast - highly recommended for a base to visit the beautiful Lake District! Landlord & Landlady both knowledgeable of local activities and amenities so if in doubt ask them for some first class advise. Free access... More

We have just returned from melrose guesthouse, having never really done b n b before.... Am so glad we tried it though. The family room was lovely, loads of space for us, and the shower was better than the one we have at home! As with most things, though, it's the people who really make a difference. The owners were... More

We have stayed here a few times now and every time Lyn and Alan go out of their way to make sure all our needs are met. The rooms are tastefully furnished, the breakfast is always delicious and their local knowledge helps many a visitor to plan memorable days out. Based in central Ambleside, there are plenty of places to... More

My husband and I have stayed here twice now and we would honestly say it was one of the best B&Bs we've stayed in. The owners are such lovely people who go out of their way to ensure you have what you need for a perfect stay. Our rooms have always been clean and comfortable with little extra touches such...

Our friends got married last week in the Lakes so we decided to treat ourselves to a mini break to Ambleside to coincide with it. The location of the guesthouse is perfect for Ambleside or for some lovely walks. There is parking just around the corner and its only £15 for three days. The owners of the Melrose were really...
