Lynn was on hand for information each morning about walks etc. The breakfast was fabulous with a good choice of menu. Our room was cleaned each day and... More

Just returned from a 5 night stay at the Melrose with my girlfriend. I've seen some of the less favourable reviews of this place, and having seen many reviews on trip advisor, I can't say that I'm particularly surprised - there is just no pleasing some people. We arrived and were welcomed immediately, Lynn was very helpful in terms of... More

What a lovely place to visit. Lynn and Alan the owners were both so friendly and knowledgable about the area and walks we could do. The Melrose guesthouse was immaculate, it is decorated complimenting it's setting. The food was delicious and always well presented and hot. Super place to stay, looking forward to visiting again next year.

I visited the Melrose Guest House along with my Husband and Daughter for a 3 night stay. We found the accommodation, atmosphere, service all excellent and had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. The owners were very polite and welcoming and their knowledge and experience of the area was very useful when planning our walks. We have stayed in the Lake District... More

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

My room was very well presented and extremely comfortable with everything I could want for a pleasant stay.

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.
