Stayed at Melrose over the weekend. Great location, hospitality and room. Breakfast and attention to detail was brilliant. Being able to use a local pool/spa was a fantastic bonus for our children. Highly recommended. Visit Dodds restaurant if you visit Ambleside. Fab. The Cranwell family

Great guesthouse, lovely and spacious bedroom and bathroom. Top notch service from all members of staff. In a great location. Would definitely come again and recommend to others. Make sure you visit Windermere Lake.

Stayed here at the start or August so right in peak season. We couldn't have chosen a better place. Alan and Lynn bent over backwards for us, the breakfast was spot on and the B&B was in an immaculate state, they should be very proud. Having stayed in other places in the Lakes, such as the acclaimed Low Wood, the... More

The Melrose is a lovely B&B in the heart of Ambleside. It's in immaculate condition - lovingly maintained, looking clean and fresh throughout. Alan and Lynn were perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble. They offer a nice selection of breakfasts, which we sampled - from a tasty full English to croissants and fresh fruit - all very nice.... More

I stayed with a mate and my dad on last weekend in June 26- 27 June for our annual walk around the lakes. We have stayed at this guest house for a number of years and it seems to get better. Since last year the owners have upgraded the basement room bathroom, and it was tastefully done it is to... More

Myself and my girlfriend searched for a hotel in Ambleside and chose the Melrose, we could not have chosen better. a beautiful hotel full of character kept immaculate by the owners Alan and Lynn. We stayed in a double room with an en suite bathroom, which seemed brand spanking new, but was just so well maintained. The breakfasts were gorgeous,... More

Very pleasant 4 night stay, well presented rooms and very comfortable bed, felt like a home from home. Wifi available. tasty full English breakfast (alternatives available if you want them). Great location , short walk to amenities eg Ambleside centre, the park, and the bus stops. Friendly and helpful owners, would recommend

Recently stayed at the Melrose Guesthouse and it was brilliant. Both Alan and Lynn were lovely and so helpful, we were looked after very well (especially the excellent breakfast, catering for vegetarians!) We Hope to return again next year.

I can honestly say this guesthouse really made our trip. We booked a weekend in the Lakes and it rained non-stop. Upon arrival Alan came to the car to get our bags and carried them up the stairs. He asked us what we had planned and had plenty of recommendations. He suggested walks and gave us maps and suggested bars... More
