I booked for a single room on offer at £80 for two nights. I was immediately upgraded to a double bed en suite, which was nice. The room was small but clean and well appointed, bed was comfy and shower worked fine. All the basics in place for a pleasant stay. There is free WiFi available but I found the... More

We stayed in room 4, there were no windows except two small skylights. The decor is very dated and the room layout rather poor - the bed was stuck against a wall in one corner and only a small space between it and a set of draws on the other. However, the bed was comfy and the room clean and... More

Very accommodating people - friendly yet not pushy. Excellent full English breakfast. (Also cereal, toast, juice etc). Location is ideal, within a couple of mins walking distance of tourist attractions, lake, pubs, restaurants, shops. Yes the room was a little dated but it was clean and comfortable and contained everything you need (although no toiletries, just soap). Bathroom compact but... More

Stayed 1 night near Christmas, the lobby was decorated with a tree and tinsel, and looked so pretty and welcoming. Room lovely, clean and warm. Breakfast delicious (full English, great coffee, cereal and juice) and the owner was so friendly. And a perfect location, just a short walk into town and to the lake. Would seriously recommend!

We arrived at Melbourne Bed and Breakfast and were met by a happy friendly man who could not do more to help us with our trip in the Lake District. Our room was clean and tidy, there was tea and coffee making facilities, bathroom was really clean, great location, 5 mins walk to Lake Windermere, the breakfast was really yummy... More

This is a tough review to write since we stayed only one night and a family that was checking out at 5:30 in the morning made a lot of noise both inside and outside the B&B and sounded like they were in the room with us. This was talked about by all the guests at breakfast that morning and it... More

I booked at fairly short notice (two weeks ish before hand) I found the B&B on Late rooms and I rang directly as we only required a one night stay at the end of August. This is not usually possible as they have a two night minimum stay nearly everywhere at weekends. The owner managed to fit us into room... More
