We immediately felt welcome the owner was very helpful and answered all our questions on the area. The room was really nice and a good size, and the breakfast was great. The spa passes were also a nice treat. Would definitely return.

This was the second time myself and two others have stayed at the Melrose in Ambleside on our walking breaks. The welcome is second to none and the quality of the accommodation first class, not to mention the superb breakfast that really does set you up for a day walking the fells. This is a tip top B&B.
