Had read mostly great reviews about this B&B. Decided to give it a try while the few negative reviews did leave a niggling doubt in my mind. Allow me to lay to rest all such doubts in the minds of all prospective guests. This place is just too good. Superbly maintained old Victorian home with all modern trappings and conveniences....

We stayed in a family room with enough space, had a place to sit and watch tv, 2 closets, cabinet with 3 drawers and big bathroom with bath and shower. 5 beds possible in this room, nice for a family. Only thing this room has as a drawback is the noise the toilet makes when it "pulls" water from the... More

I have stayed at Melrose House on three different occasions and would honestly not consider staying anywhere else when visiting London. I have just finished reading all the reviews from the last three years and it is good to see that most of the people were happy with their stay at Melrose House! There are a few negative comments which... More

I stayed for 7 nights in a double room. It was 60 pounds per night, but it was worth the price. Modern rooms with good bed, chest of drawers, 2 chairs and small table, small TV, water cooker with instant coffee or tea, brand new shower, good toilet with sink. Daily cleaning included! Breakfast was excellent. Apart from what was... More

Take National Rail to Penge East station and it's about a 5 minute walk from there. Breakfast is very good, made to order and there is plenty of it. The man who cooks it is wonderful, so is the owner. Coffee, tea, and biscuits (cookies) provided in the room. Garden room 10 was very quiet and peaceful. Only downside was... More

The rooms have just been recently been renovated with a neutral colour scheme, the beds are comfortable and a large tv which make a large difference. There is a decent wifi signal throughout the property, the bathroom we had was perfect it had shower with a power and waterfall head. There was aload of street parking around the property and...

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.
