Central location makes it very convenient. The owners were very kind and helpful and everything was clean and quiet. Don't miss the free entry to the Solitude Spa - we did and regretted it as it would've been great way to recover from the Windermere Marathon! Only mild criticism is that the shower in the bathroom (Room 4) had virtually... More

Let me say from the outset what great hosts Lynn and Alan are - very friendly and helpful - couldn't do enough to make our stay a pleasure. The room was spotless and spacious - very quiet and a comfortable bed for a good night sleep (which was important as I was doing the Windermere Marathon) - breakfast was great... More

The location in Ambleside was excellent, especially with the private car park, as it meant we could leave our vehicle there for the whole duration. The staff were very courteous and hospitable. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. I'd recommend Melrose Guesthouse to anybody wishing to stay in Ambleside.

My husband and I stayed at Melrose for six nights in April. The guest house was great quality, breakfasts were great and the owners were extremely welcoming and helpful. We would not stay anywhere else if visiting that area again.

Both myself and husband stayed at this hotel and we received a warm welcome from Alan, the owner himself. He was so kind that he showed us the car park and walked us back to the hotel. The room was super clean and cosy. We had good night sleep after 8 hours of driving from London. The room decoration and... More

We had an excellent stay at Melrose inn. Alan and Lynn were fantastic hosts! Great advice for walks in the nearby area across to Troatbeck and also around Grizedale. Also great restaurant recommendations within the village. The B&B is in a fab location in Ambleside

We booked The Melrose last minute as a spur of the moment decision and we did not regret it. The B & B was centrally located, immaculately clean and comfortable. The breakfast was well cooked and Lynn's homemade yogurt and berries were delicious. There is a vegetarian choice of cooked breakfast and lighter options available. Lynn and Alan were friendly...

Great location close to centre of Ambleside. As a guest, you can take advantage of the spa facilities and pool at the hotel just a 5 minute walkaway Rooms impeccable and all of us commented how clean they were. Breakfast very good, with staff being extremely friendly and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely revisit.

Lovely friendly guesthouse, located right in the centre of Ambleside. Rooms are cosy, modern and very clean. Alan and Lynn made us very welcome. Would really recommend staying here. The location is ideal for local pubs and restaurants.
