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.

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.
