Our first, but certainly not last stay at the Melrose. The hotel is well placed, close to everything but away from the crowds. The rooms have been refurbished well, and were nice and clean. The rooms are modern but maintain the features and style of the lovely old property. The owner Wendy and Rocket (her top cat!) made the stay complete, nothing was too much trouble The home cooked breakfast made a great start to the day. Well done the Melrose we will definatly be back, thanks Wendy! Sharon & Gary.

Situated just a 2 min walk from town yet quiet enough as not to disturb sleep.
The host,Wendy was instantly likeable and friendly. The room was airy and spacious and very clean. The bed was comfortable and linen spotless.
The en-suite again was clean and tidy with fluffy clean towels available
The breakfast next morning was ample and well cooked.
A very good value hotel,ive paid nearly twice as much to stay in places not even near this standard. This is my 3rd visit in 3 mths and ill return time and time again.
