Pretty location and interesting gardens, but very little to see inside the hall itself. Insufficient information (even though I bought the guidebook). Great welcome on arrival, and I was told that if I had any questions the guides in each room would be able to help or would fetch someone else if they didn't know. Alas this didn't happen ......

Did the guided tour of the house. Having done many other stately homes this a bit average. Gardens nicely kept. Shops ok. Tea room well done.

I went to the visit the hall yesterday with my disabled mother who is 81 years old and disabled. There is no parking or very little parking available and no designated disabled parking. There is on the street parking which is very hazardous as the roads are very narrow and with parked cars, it is almost impossible to pass another... More

What a beautiful little town... We visited the Melbourne Hall..the hall is only open a certain amount of days throughout the year. Awesome place, tour guide was really good. Apparently alot of Melbournians from Australia pay a visit here. I highly reccomend going here for at least one day you shall not regret it. Just beautiful.

Even though it was a bit late in the year, the gardens were looking loverly and very well kept. Beautiful vistas across the lake and many small pools. Lots of statues and things of interest to look for in the gardens. After the walk, stop off at the tea rooms for a cream tea, cake or even lunch. Well worth... More

we enjoyed a nice afternoon tea with cake which tasted very fresh. Children had milk shakes served in a jar which was very cute. Staff worked hard and service was good , highly recommend.

A great place to enjoy a cup of tea and sandwiches or cake, especially if it's warm enough to sit outside.Staff are always friendly whenever I've visited. Like the fact that it's waitress service too...no queuing at a counter and struggling with trays.

A real treat to find this beautiful family home! I was on a planned trip to Calke Abbey, and spotted a sign for Melbourne Hall.I belong to HHA, so was given free admission. The house is stunning, well kept, room guides interesting and friendly. The gardens are exquisite, beautifully kept, a joy to go round. Great tea room as well.... More

Have visited Melbourne Hall since my eldest was an infant. Remember her doing rolls down the garden hills. Shes 13 now,so doesnt do that anymore.My other two do though. The garden has given our family many happy days,to remain in our memory. A beautiful, intruiging, enticing garden to explore.
