We stayed here as a group of six on three motorcycles - it is a biker friendly establishment. There is no secure parking but there is adequate and secluded hardstanding at the rear of the property for the bikes. The accommodation is comfortable, clean and well appointed and topped off with a wonderful breakfast each morning to set you up... More

Easily booked, great price, great location, spotlessly clean, tasty and varied breakfast options always served on time. Wonderful hosts Alan & Lynn.- Very accommodating with our bikes, even storing them on our last day for a while after we'd checked out. I would definitely recommend this guesthouse.

Lovely stay. Lynn and Alan made sure my fussy eating habits were catered for. Can especially commend Alan for keeping my coffee topped up. Room 3 was lovely, clean and jam packed with coffee and tea! The adjacent bathroom was nice and the floofy bathrobe was a nice touch. Cheers!

We had a short stay in Lake District, and had the pleasure of staying and getting to meet Alan at the Melrose Guest House. Highly recommend this place for anyone thinking or planning on going. Everything was easy, clean, and friendly.
