The hotel was good, nice breakfast, lovely staff and very, very well located. Would definitely stay again. Best value hotel I've been to, only issue was that the room was sometimes a bit too cold for my liking, although the thick blankets certainly helped.

Excellent location only took us 5 minutes to walk down to the city centre shops. The proprietors were very helpful and friendly and the service exceeded our expectations. The room for a family of 4 was just right, clean and tastefully decorated. We would definitely look to stay there again next time we visit family.

The proprietor s of the Melrose were as friendly and helpful as can be from before I arrived to my leaving. Clean room, huge breakfast, helpful info. Easy access to everything...chippy, grocery store, promenade, museum, etc.

Situated within a stone's throw of the IOM's centre of government, and within a five minute walk from the town centre, this is a clean but basic establishment in what to some would seem to be not the best street in Douglas - However, the proprietors were very helpful, and the breakfasts were very good indeed. Basically, you get what... More
