It's like taking a trip back in time when you step through the front door! Excellent service and superb accommodation (oh, and our dog loves it too!!). It's now our regular stop in Lismore. Thanks Helen!

Finding Melville House as being pet friendly is a bonus but even if it weren't, it's just a fabulous place to stay. Helen's "hello" on arrival was warm and welcoming. A quick run through of how our room worked and we settled in. Dining advice was... More

This house is lovely and friendly. Helen's breakfasts and Mike's fire were lovely. But the best thing was Jack the dog greeting me home each day and barking in the house to announce my arrival. Bed was really comfortable and room had everything I needed. Tables were set beautifully and the views from the breakfast room were lovely.

My husband and I stayed for 7 days whilst visiting a sick relative in hospital. The room that I booked was the Carreras Room.The room has a large wardrobe which I found was useful staying a few days. The bed is comfortable and has a soft mattress. I misinterpreted the description and found that the bathroom was across the hallway.... More

Melville House is an attractive historical residence in Lismore. I selected the budget accommodation option that included a clean, comfortable room with en-suite shower, toilet, small bar fridge, TV, Internet, and tea or coffee etc. A full breakfast was provided by the owner, Helen, an interesting, friendly and attentive (but not intrusive) host. Melville House is highly recommended, being conveniently... More

Helen, thanks for allowing us to stay at Melville House last weekend. We had a crowd of parents and teenage boys for 2 nights & the accommodation, facilities, price were all terrific. We were made to feel very welcome, had a terrific weekend socialising, slept well & ate well. We'll be back regularly. Thank you.

Very good price, bed was so comfortable after a very long drive, breakfast was amazing including gluten free and dairy free & we were able to have our dog stay. Would stay again. Helen is a good hostess.

Stayed here while working on a property. Awesome accommodation. Clean and comfortable room. Great breakfast. Friendly atmosphere. Off street secure parking. Helen is very friendly and highly knowledgeable. Can not recommend this place enough.
