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!!

Really good location, good veggie breakfast, informative and friendly owners. The room was on the ground floor (room 8) which I'm personally not a fan of, but it's one of those things, next time I'll ask specifically for a room on the upper floors. The bed was on the small side for what we're used to, but it was comfortable... More

Melrose is right in the centre of Ambleside so lots of great restaurants and shops within easy walking distance. Also lots of nice walks and views nearby. The hospitality at Melrose is excellent, Lynn and Alan were very friendly and helpful and there is a lovely homely feel to the place. Would definitely like to go back.

My wife and I had a very comfortable stay at Melrose Guesthouse. Our hosts could not have been more welcoming or helpful. The room was very pleasant and the location, right in the heart of Ambleside, was great.

I booked Melrose recently as a treat for my parents, and the two rooms that we had were lovely, clean and quiet. The owners are friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble, and the breakfasts were absolutely delicious. Parking did not turn out to be an issue for us. The location is extremely central and perfect for my... More

Found Melrose on the internet when looking for a place to stay while in the Lakes for a Lakeland Trails run. The photos on the website and Trip Advisor reviews convinced us of its suitability. We're quite fussy and so to find that our room, breakfast room and the welcoming atmosphere from Lynn and Alan was as described elsewhere, was... More

Just got back from a 3 night stay at Melrose and what a great place to stay. We had a family room on the lower ground floor which was more than enough for our family of 3 and so quiet. Alan and Lynn are lovely people who go out of their way to make you feel welcome and the breakfasts... More
