We stayed in the Dame Melba room for 2 nights. Our stay was very relaxing, helped by the nice natured Izabella. Sue was extremely helpful and breakfast was terrific. We would definitely recommend this B&B.

We stayed in two of the three rooms, Dame Nellie and Dame Edna, both were very clean and comfortable, fresh cookies, tea and port. Breakfast the next... More

Wonderful 3 days in the Dame Edna room. Sue an Issy were very friendly. Sue offered lots of helpful ideas for dining and sight seeing. We specially loved the using the open fire, and the after dinner glass of port, and of course the delightful spa bath with lots and lots of bubbles. Ingrid

My husband and I had an amazing time on both occasions but the spa in Nellie is definitely a bonus - along with ample of towels, candles, Molten Brown toiletries. Our stay there always feels luxurious with breakfast served with... More

Sue the owner was lovely as was her sweet pooch " Issy". Breakfast is served in your room or on the verandah weather permitting which for us... More

Staying at Melba House this weekend was, quite simply, a joy. Our suite - Dame Edna, was comfortable and well supplied with everything one might wish for. Breakfast on the terrace each morning was delicious and Sue and Issy could not have been better hosts. Sue was more forthcoming than Issy when it came to expert guidance on the best... More

Very friendly host Sue and her lovely dog Izzy made our stay very enjoyable. Quiet and peaceful B&B with good location. Nice smell everywhere. Beautifully furnished room, classic and warm decoration.

Lovely B&B with beautifully furnished and appointed rooms, and a fabulous welcome from Sue and her adorable dog Izzy! Sue goes the extra mile, with home baked cookies in the room and an extensive breakfast menu served on the gorgeous veranda where my husband and I also spent several happy hours lounging in the afternoons after our explorations of the...
