Recently spent two nights here with friends on a walking break. This is always our first choice of accommodation when visiting The Lakes and it's not about to change. Perfect hosts set you on your way after a good nights sleep in one of the lovely en-suite rooms and a hearty breakfast of your choice. Excellent.

Very comfortable room, great decor. Made to feel welcome straight away. Great base for exploring Ambleside and the Lakes District. We used the hop on hop off buses for exploring and they worked fabulously. Plenty of pubs and restaurants arounf for meals. Breakfast was fantastic and the service even better. Parking can be a problem but we parked the car... More

I have been extremely remiss in adding this review from a stay in October last year. We stayed at the Melrose for three nights and the service and food can only be described as excellent. Our room had every facility we could ever want - WIFI, television, niceties such as shower gels etc - in addition to the usual Tea,... More

I have been using The Melrose for many years on an Annual walking weekend with friends. So I decided to take my wife here for part of our 23rd Wedding Anniversary celebrations. As usual, Lynn & Alan were very helpful and the room we had was excellent. Superbly clean and the breakfast is fantastic. Will without doubt be staying here... More

An excellent guest house situated in the centre of Ambleside with great public transport links and access to local amenities. With a warm welcome from the owner, we were shown to a spacious, modern and well designed en suite deluxe room. The room had additional lovely touches including toiletries, free WiFi, selection of drinks and biscuits. The high standard of... More

I very much enjoyed my stay at this lovely guesthouse. The staff and owners were very nice and offered me advice on where to go on my bike. They were also very accommodating of my motorcycle which was nice! The room itself was very nice and generally cleanliness of the place was better than much more expensive places I have... More

My Wife and I have recently returned from Ambleside having spent the weekend celebrating our 13th Wedding Anniversary. We usually visit Keswick, which is a beautiful place, but fancied a change and we were not disappointed. Alan and Lynn made us feel very welcome and were only too pleased to help when needed. We found our room to be very... More

Just spent 2 nights at the Melrose and it was fabulous! I was attending a wedding in Windermere and was travelling alone so booked the single room and despite it not being en suite, the use of a private bathroom was ideal. Alan and Lynn are perfect hosts! Alan greeted me and showed me to my room which was great... More

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
