A great location to explore the Lakes from. Parking is on road using a disc which was never a problem. Comfortable room and great breakfast with cereal, fruit and full english if you want. We were very well looked after.

This was our second visit to Melrose and we would highly recommend it. Our room (2) was lovely and well equipped with everything we needed. Lynn and Alan are friendly and welcoming and have lots of knowledge of the local area. The guesthouse is ideally situated to be within walking distance of local amenities oh, and the breakfast is fantastic!...

Just returned from a two night stay at the Melrose. From our warm welcome to our departure this morning everything was superb. Absolutely spotless, lovely room, great breakfast, advice on walks, restaurants etc., nothing was too much trouble. If going to this area make the Melrose your first choice. Lyz, Edinburgh

I had a lovely three-night stay at Melrose. The room is cosy and comfortable. It was the perfect base for exploring the area, which is beautiful. Lynne and Alan are welcoming and friendly. The breakfast was delicious. I would definitely stay here again
