We recently had a one-night stay in this lovely B and B in pretty Bakewell. Although it was wet and cold outside, both our room and the welcome we received were warm and inviting. Melbourne House is well situated on one of the main roads leading into Bakewell, just a short stroll from the town centre. Off-street parking is provided... More

Last minute booking but couldn't have picked a better overnight place to stay. Room was very comfortable and breakfast superb, would definitely stay here again. Bathroom very modern and although breakfast was served in the house over the road it was well worth it.

Friendly service, good breakfast, lovely room and perfect location close to town. We were in the annex house across the road but this was not a problem. Parking convenient too. Would definitely recommend. Thank you!

Great B&B. Stayed for 3 nights on a solo trip and was made very welcome by the owners. The whole room was pleasantly decorated and bathroom was very clean. The centre of Bakewell is only 5-10 minuets walk along a main road. Breakfast choice was good and the whole experience is something i hope to try again. Bakewell itself is... More

We recently stayed at Melbourne House and it has to be one of the best b&b's we've stayed in. My husband and I are keen travellers and have stayed in many b&b's but nothing comes near to how lovely this one was. The owners were really lovely and made our stay extra special. We was shown the best places to... More

I recently stayed at Easthorpe and absolutely everything was perfect. We received a lovely warm welcome when we arrived and nothing was too much for them for any of our needs and questions about where to visit etc. The rooms were spacious and extremely clean and the beds were very comfortable. This place was unfaultable. I will most certainly be... More

Most of the other reviews on TripAdvisor are a complete mystery to us. Even if we were unlucky and just had a grotty room. Nothing in this place deserves a five rating. The hosts were OK, but 'lovely' ? Not to us. We were a bit torn between giving it 2 or just 1 out of 5 for this place.... More

Everything about Melbourne House is excellent. We received a friendly welcome on arrival and were shown straight to our room which was spotless as was the en-suite bathroom. The facilities were great, a comfy bed, good quality bed linen, tea, coffee and biscuits, free wi-fi which was very fast and always available. We stayed for three days and the room... More

Just returned from a couple of nights at the Melbourne. What can we say; we couldn't fault this place, from the very modern and well fitted rooms, to the comfy beds and delicious breakfast, it was a delight from start to finish. Our host was most accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. And at a very competitive price. We... More
