My husband and I stayed here for one night with our two children 10 and 8. We were greeted by the owner who let us check in early! 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

Had a lovely stay here. Guest house was warm and inviting and lovely hosts. Our room, 2 was fab! Like a boudoir all in red, very tastefully done. Immaculate and loved little touches like dvds and bottled water. Breakfast was fantastic and my vegan/vegetarian byfriend catered for. Highly recommend. Only downer and not guest house fault is the disc parking... More

The accommodation was great, very clean, the room was spacious, and bed incredibly comfortable. Hospitality without fault for a perfect local guesthouse, information and knowledge settling in helped us greatly, the breakfast service was prompt and delicious and Alan, even gave... More

Having first stayed here a couple of years ago I already knew it was a top guest house. Since then improvements have been made, particularly to the decor. My wife and I were lucky enough to have Room 1. It is spacious, exceptionally clean with a superKing, super comfortable bed and on suite shower room. Everything works. The Melrose also... More

Me and my girlfriend headed to Ambleside for a weekend getaway and were greeted by very friendly staff. Our room was spotless, big and had everything we needed not to mention the beautiful views from the window of the surrounding area. At just a stones throw from 'The Priest Hole', a lovely restaurant and all surrounding pubs, this is quite... More

The Melrose is modern whilst remaining homely,and the staff are very welcoming! The rooms were absolutely spotless and it is a stones throw from the town shops/restaurants etc. Plenty of hot water in the bathroom, a comfy bed and the breakfast was amazing (especially the bacon!!)...We would definitely and hopefully will stay here again! :) x

Stayed for a spur of the moment night at Melrose. Friendly welcome, spotless, comfy room and a tasty breakfast. we had room 5 at the top of the house and although it overlooked the road at the front of the house it was very quiet. Would we stay again? Oh yes!

We were very happy with our room and breakfast was lovely, really appreciated a 'full' veggie breakfast including sausages which is unheard of in a lot of establishments. The Melrose is in a great spot for trundling around Ambleside and walking in the hills and after a day out in the rain Lynn was very happy to take our wet... More

I really don't know where to start with this review. Its a 5 Star B&B! 1) At the offset both Lynn and Alan were very responsive prior to my arrival responding to the queries I had over both email and telephone. They continued to be that way even after I arrived and stayed for the 8nights! 2) The room is... More

The place was well placed in the village of Ambleside, accessible to all local amenities. The food was lovely and the hosts were very accommodating to all our needs I would recommend this accommodation to my friends as it is clean, well decorated in modern yet minimal decor and atmospheric. Thankyou for a lovely stay we are sure to return!!
