“Big rooms, big service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

Wonderfully big rooms and some great service. Amazing for the price!

Melverley House is fitted and decorated to a very high standard. The shower is worth the stay alone! View is of Kingswear over the Dart. Stayed in the room with the bay window.

Service is 5* Breakfast is continental-style, served in room and a very high quality.

Just makes me want to go back to Dartmouth and stay again! Thanks Hillary :)

We are very fussy B&B guests and are very pleased we chose to stay at Melverley house for Dartmouth regatta weekend.
We had a lovely stay at Melverley house. Spotlessly clean, beautiful views and a excellent breakfast couldn't ask for more. Only reason have not rated higher is because the walk down the hill is a nice walk but coming back.....well we only did it once! However Taxi up from Dartmouth is only about £3.00 so with this in mind we were very happy to book again for next year.

Room Tip: One room has the balcony and bathroom on landing and the other room has the ensuite and bay window s...

Had a lovely stay at Melverley House, so glad we booked in! The breakfast was yummy and suited us being able to choose what we wanted and what time. The room was beautifully done down to the finishing touches and the view was amazing. Would definitely want to stay again.

Have visited Dartmouth numerous times for 20 years and always stay in the town centre as close to the river as possible but as we only decided to visit as a last minute treat all our regular choices were unavailable. However we were very lucky to have found our room at Melverley House, as it was beautiful. Hilary the owner showed us to our room which was lovely & with a balcony looking over the valley to the best view in Devon........the River Dart. Everything about our stay was excellent, the room extremely comfortable, the bathroom had everything we needed & the breakfast a great start to the day, It's a lovely 10-15 minute walk downhill to the town & river & if you can't face the walk back up as I couldn't after a few wines a taxi cost us £4. Would recommend to friends and we are glad our regular choices were unavailable as we now have another favourite Dartmouth haunt!!

Room Tip: both rooms excellant

We made a second trip to Dartmouth, a year after our first, for a birthday treat. We enjoyed our visit - the bed is so comfortable, bathroom spotless with proper power shower you don't want to leave and a view of Dartmouth from the bedroom's bay window that is delightful first thing in the morning. We enjoyed delicious food and for me Hilary's fruit salad is delicious, the detail goes down to even de-stoning cherries. Melverley provides secure parking and warm hospitality. We hope to be back next year.

Beautiful room overlooking the most superb view of Dartmouth. Everything was of the best quality from the bed (really comfortable) to the breakfast (fresh homemade food).
Hilary was welcoming when we arrived and was the perfect host. We had the most lovely stay.
