We recently spent two enjoyable nights at the Melrose. Lynn and Alan were very friendly and helpful hosts and the standard of the decor was excellent. There was a good choice for breakfast which was beautifully cooked and promptly served. A bonus was the secure parking a short walk away. The Melrose is well placed in the heart of Ambleside.

We spent two nights at the lovely Melrose Guest House in early September. Lynn and Alan are perfect hosts and the inn is a perfect place to use as a base to explore the area. The hotel is cozy and very comfortable and the breakfasts were delicious. Secured parking was just a short walk away. When we go back to... More

The Melrose. Guest house in Ambleside, Lakes District, was our B &. B for two nights recently. We stayed there with friends from Florida, and we were all most impressed. Not only were our rooms comfortable, airy, clean and modern but our hosts were extra friendly and helpful. Our breakfasts were delicious, with plenty of choice and piping hot! The... More

We stayed here at the end august. It's a lovely place, nice owners, nice fresh breakfasts, very clean and in an ideal central location to pubs/restaurants/short walks! We would most definitely stay here again. Only gripe would be the toilet in room 1 was hard to flush, but they'll probably read this and fix it!

Once again we have just returned from a Two Night stay at the Fabulous Melrose Guesthouse, where standards remain at a superb level. Lynn and Alan are wonderful hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Everything about the place oozes quality and we will definitely be going back for more. We can't recommend this place enough

Only booked the night before we went but were delighted with the standard and the friendly welcome we received. The room was large and spotlessly clean as was the ensuite bathroom. Breakfast was of a very high standard with a good selection for those who didn't want the full English. Parking in Ambleside is quite dear but the Melrose rents... More

This was our second stay with Lynn and Alan, and it did not disappoint. The overall comfort and cleanliness is excellent, and the breakfasts are first-class. Alan & Lynn will make you feel very much at home and will assist in any way they can. We would have no hesitation in recommending Melrose to friends and family, and will definitely... More

This Guest House is near the centre of Ambleside, and therefore well placed for the whole of the Lakes. Like the rest of Ambleside, there is little parking that doesn't cost a fortune but the proprietors have solved this by providing secured parking quite close for the princely sum of £3 PER DAY. Problem solved. The room we had was... More
