Stayed here when we went to rugby world cup last weekend. Wendy, the hotelier, could not have been nicer or more helpful. Room was nice, tea and coffee, TV and towels all provided. Thought shared loo and bathroom would be hard to get used to, but not at all. As they are separate and on each floor, we never had... More

This was our second stay at the melrose this year, Wendy the owner is very friendly and helpful with advise about local places and events. The full English Breakfast was very enjoyable. The accommodation was clean and comfortable with tea/coffee making facilities. The Melrose is very close to the Metro train station which takes you all over Newcastle and surrounding... More

this is a great B&B to stay in, wendy the owner makes everyone feel so welcome. I've always been a bit snobby when it comes to shared bathrooms, but these were enough to knock that out of me, very clean indeed. the room we had was very clean & cosy, & wendy made us a superb breakfast in the morning....

We have to get in our room early because of the wedding and this wasn't a problem, we arrived at 11am to a lovely welcome from Wendy who showed us to our... More

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
