We are a group of friends who came to London from Italy in October! This B & B was recommended by a friend English, had a great time at this B & B. Both as cleaning, breakfast (abundant), comfortable rooms! Comfortable position to reach the center of London! Recommended! If we return to London, we will return to this B... More

B and B in beautiful surroundings managed outstanding well by the owner Frances Roberts with assistance from her family. Good transport links to central London. Especially recommended are the garden rooms leading on to the beautiful, restful and calming garden with its water features. Thoroughly deserving of its four star status.

This was our first trip to London, so Francis and her adult children were the first innkeepers that we experienced. The three of them were very cordial and helpful to us during our stay! Our room, #11, was clean and bright. However, during our visit the weather was very warm, and our room was HOT as it did not have... More

I stayed at Melrose House for two nights each week from December 2013 to the end of June 2014, whilst working in Beckenham. I stayed in the majority of the rooms over the 7 months I worked in London and found them all to be very comfortable, they are well colour coordinated with good quality bed linen. The rooms are...

So to say I will never recommend this place is the very truth. The second we got there, France made us feel unwelcome and like we were a burden on her. We got to our room which was very small and I got yelled at my Frances for dragging my suitcase up the flight of stairs and down even though... More

I really recommend this B&B! The English breakfast is very good. We stayed in the 3 person room (with 3), nice beds, clean, and a good shower. What else do you need after 10hrs shopping? The B&B is 5 min. from the train station and about 35 min from Oxford street.

We had a good stay at Melrose House recently. As a house rather than a purpose built hotel the whole is full of character. Friendly and helpful family members make the stay a pleasurable experience. The room we stayed in was clean and bright with all we could want. Information including maps was provided. The only tip if in room... More

Used to be in the serviced accommodation business and know that Customer Care should be paramount. Amazingly sullen service here (apart from Wendy who met us on arrival in a hall filled with dirty washing though). Breakfast service is obviously not a pleasure! Saw 2 rooms in the garden annexe. Plus point they open to the garden. Negative points: TV... More

Whilst we accept and even welcome criticism, and act upon rational and well thought out points made, we cannot accept fabrication of the truth. The notice in the room referring to the large leather sofa is requesting that guests do not put their luggage on it because they might damage the sofa, it says nothing about people use only. There...

We stayed in the new room 6 (the former dining room). Very clean, comfortable, and most importantly quiet room looking through the conservatory. The bed was comfortable. Breakfasts were cooked to order and were huge and delicious - we weren't hungry until dinner. I was worried about the commute into central London based on some of the other reviews, but... More

I've tried to book here in the past [at short notice] and was unlucky because there were no available rooms. This year I spent several days here whilst visiting family in London and was impressed by the warmth and helpfulness of the owners; the great range of breakfast menu with something for every taste; clean comfortable room and facilities and...
