Emma & Dave could not have been more accomodating & welcoming, the place was spotless & loads for breakfast, even the "Easter Bunny" paid us a visit, & you wouldn't get that in the Savoy !! We'll definately be back when we have a spare weekend;-))

This was my fourth time staying at The Melrose over a period of around 6 years and I absolutely love it. Location is perfect, 2 mins from the beach, metro station and bars. Very quiet despite being close to the bars. Wendy is brilliant, extremely accommodating, nothing is too much trouble, knowledge of the area is spot on, her breakfasts... More

If it is value for money you are after, then Melrose Guest House is a great choice. It isn't a luxurious B&B option, but neither are the rates charged. I stayed for a week while in the area for a work event and always felt welcome, the room was modern, and there was a basin in the room with a... More

We stayed here in September and were warmly greeted by Wendy, she is lovely and full of info and friendly chat as well as cooking a very nice breakfast. The house is near the beach and very close to the station so going in and out of Newcastle was very easy. The area is a bit run down but hopefully... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review of the Melrose & for the many positive comments you make. I’m really pleased you & your lovely wife found lots about the Melrose that you liked but must apologise profusely that the area near the plug socket was dusty. This is of course unacceptable & I only... More

Couldn't recommend this place enough!! We had a fantastic stay and hope to go back some time! Wendy came to our rescue when my friends and I, came down from Edinburgh for the weekend, not knowing the area and had booked into a 'different' hotel in Whitley Bay which resembled something similar to the house of horrors...and that's putting it...

The rooms are modern, well decorated, extremly clean and the beds are really comfy. This is my fourth stay at The Melrose as i often work in the Whitley Bay area and it's the best B&B I've found....

The review from Robert S must be some sort of joke? This is a well located b and b close to the bars and restaurants but just far enough away for a peaceful nights sleep.
