“Easilly adequate”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2011

Stayed here with fiends whilst watching the week long classic GP.

I shared our room with two others, and whilst a shade cramped, was ok for our means. The beds were comfortable and the room had Tea and Coffee etc and on suite shower and toilet, this was also a bit cramped bur easily usable. The décor is a work in progress and is presently being updated and tidied up some, this isnt to say its in any sense substandard or even shabby, its just being redecorated in the same manner as one paints ones house.

The most outstanding feature is the cooked breakfast, whereby I saw people eating kippers (on request) though I plumped for English, and which was rather good.

The outstanding feature mentioned however is easily eclipsed by the Landlady Zin, she is really lovely and a delight to converse with, as was my own highly pleasurable experience with this lady.

All in all a good stay.

Room Tip: Unsure here, I only saw our own room.

Stayed there with my 2 Daughters over a Weekend-very Happy with Accomodation-slept like a log -snored like a bear according to my Girls.Rooms very clean and tidied up Daily.
The Breakfast was Fantastic-set you for the Day -really nice couple who looked after everbody.The Melrose is situated- very close to the Main Shopping Area of Douglas which
is handy,a couple of Pubs nearby and the Manx Musuem just around the corner.
I will definately be back at the Melrose.

Stayed here for the third time, Peter and Xin always make you welcome. Rooms are clean and well furnished. Breakfast is excellent and a good way of meeting the other guests. Only minutes from the shopping area and promenade.

Dowdy, damp and unhygienic I'm afraid. Towels dingy, beds not made or sheets changed. Some of the fixings starting to fall apart. Avoid if you can!
