We visited Whitby for the first time last March and were lucky to find this lovely guest house. We liked it so much that we have returned three times since. Our last visit was last week (the sunny one). Emma and David manage to keep everything immaculate while at the same time making guests feel comfortable. Nothing is too much... More

One of the best B&B's we have stayed in. A warm welcome by David who made us tea on arrival. We stayed in room 5 on the ground floor, a large quiet well decorated room with a partial sea view. The breakfasts were amazing and set us up for the day. Free parking was easy and the Melrose was less... More

Our trip started by David & Emma allowing us to check in early to cater to our coach getting into Whitby early & us attending a wedding mid afternoon. We were welcomed by David who could not have been more helpful (bringing us drinks, bottle opener, iron etc). The room itself was lovely with a stunning balcony/sea view, modern decor... More

We stayed at the Melrose for one night on our first visit to Whitby. David and Emma were so friendly and the house is clean and comfortable. Very handily situated for the beach and the town, and we really liked Whitby and would like to go back for a less flying visit.

Thank you for a wonderful holiday, David and Emma. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your lovely home. You were so welcoming and friendly to everyone and the quality and quantity of food was amazing. Probably the best breakfast we have enjoyed in many years of holidaying. Having coeliac disease, it is essential that I adhere to a strict gluten... More

Perfectly located just a short stroll to the beach and within walking distance to Whitby town centre, Melrose Guest House is definitely worth recommending. The whole house is immaculate and tastefully decorated with a modern fresh feel while in keeping with its original Victorian features. We stayed in room 6 which was very comfortable with a good quality king size... More

We struggled to get a bargain for the Sunday we visited Whitby . Booked Melrose on the strength of previous good reviews. The room was nice and very clean . The bedding smelt fresh and the bed itself was comfortable. It was nice when Emma made us a hot drink with biscuits and chocs on arrival . Breakfast was very... More

What a lovely place to stay. We were greeted by Emma who kindly made us a cup of tea. We were in room 5 downstairs. It was beautifully decorated and was spotless. The breakfast was delicious and we will highly recommend to anyone. Diane & Mike Green

We recently spent three nights at the Melrose - and our experience echoes all the compliments paid by other guests: a friendly welcome and cup of tea on arrival, a clean, comfortable and quiet room, and those fabulous breakfasts. Emma and David are exemplary and attentive hosts and clearly take things very seriously. We liked the location - bit of... More
