Well we haven't been to visit (yet) - but recently met the couple who own and run the Melrose Guesthouse while we were all on a ski holiday in Austria. Great to meet you Lynn & Alan - from snippets of conversations sounds like a real destination for us! Sue

My wife and I stayed for a 2 night break mid November. The room was tastefully decorated and the bed (always top of my list on any review) was very comfortable.

Very friendly hosts, offered great advice on walks and directions, and let us borrow their maps for the duration of our stay. The breakfasts were amazing, very high quality. The bedroom was very clean and had plenty of space, and the beds were so comfy. I would highly recommend staying here.
