Emma and Dave (proprietors) do not treat you like paying guests, they treat you like family and friends. This was our 1st visit and we have already booked for next year. The place is very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Dave cooks a 1st rate breakfast and it is cooked to order. Nothing is too much trouble for them. For a... More

Absolutely fantastic place. The Melrose is a beautiful guest house which is completely spotless inside. Brilliant room, location and wonderful breakfast. The hosts David & Emma are both lovely people and bend over backwards to make you feel welcome. Thanks very much and hopefully see you soon.

We returned to The Melrose a few months after our first visit. A very welcome arrival and a fresh hot cuppa! A superb stay and we both enjoyed it so much, we stayed an extra night! Dave and Emma are both fantastic and lovely people. They are so hard working, day in and day out, cooking, cleaning and feeding and... More

Hi Andy and Kathryn, It was a pleasure having you both return to Melrose, this job really is a pleasure when your guests are like friends. Thank you so much for the bottle of Rioja, it went down an absolute treat with a take-away curry last night. Hope you enjoy your trips to Dartmoor and Inverness. Best wishes, Dave and... More

Another really fab stay at this lovely guest house run by Dave and Emma who were as welcoming and friendly as always. This is another of our many visits to Melrose, and have already booked to stay again. Dave and Emma's thoughtfulness towards their guests make the difference from a great stay to a truly amazing one.

Hi Hazel and Dave, Fabulous to see you both once again, we really appreciate your 2nd review of Melrose. It was lovely to meet your sister and partner. On a sadder note, such devastating news about your 6 foot giraffe! We would have paid good money to see your car on the moors with a couple of foot of giraffe... More

The Melrose is a top quality guest house in an excellent position in Whitby. All the accommodation is modern and very clean, our room (1) was large with a small balcony and a sea view. The house is a few hundred yards from the sea and a ten minute walk into Whitby along the West Cliff. The owners Emma and... More

it was myself and my wifes first visit to Whitby and I do not think that we could have found a nicer and friendlier place to stay it was also very comfortable and extremely clean and also excellent breakfast. Also the accommodation was extremely well placed for all amenities. we will definitely return at some point in the future

My husband and I stayed overnight at Melrose and we were delighted with our experience . We parked straight across from the building with no problems and received a warm welcome from Emma and David. The accommodation was bright, airy and spacious with modern decor and it was spotless . Everything felt new and the service we received was first... More

Our first stay since Joanne and Chris had passed this wonderful guest house over to Emma and Dave. The very high comfort and immaculate cleanliness standards continue. The breakfast was also excellent, really liked the dried fruit and nuts and the pomegranate which complemented the cereals making the breakfast that bit extra!. Great hospitality also continues with the new hosts... More

The Melrose is one of the best B&B's we have stayed in. Clean, comfortable and in a good location. Friendly and relaxed hosts, very good breakfast and parking available right outside. We had a great (if windy!) weekend. Highly recommended.

Emma and Dave are the perfect hosts at Melrose Guest House, nothing is too much trouble for them and they make guests feel comfortable and relaxed. The rooms were tastefully decorated and clean, and parking was easy ( not always the case in Whitby, and a godsend to some of us female drivers!!). The location was good for us although... More
