Reviewed January 2, 2014

We have just had a wonderful stay at Melverley House and everything about it is charming, cosy and extremely comfortable.Our room was to the highest standard, very clean, and beautifully furnished with a very comfortable bed and had a stunning view over the River Dart both during the day and at night. Breakfast was delicious and it was only a short walk downhill to the Marina.

Hilary (the owner) welcomed us warmly and made our stay very luxurious with things such as breakfast in bed and heated flooring. Our room had breathtaking views across the bay and was very tastefully decorated. The bed was large and we had our own kettle with the option of fresh coffee or a range of teas.

Very peaceful, no noises just the stunning views to gaze at from the comfort of the bed itself.

Breakfast was five Star, seriously delicious and excellent service

We will be staying here again, next time we visit Dartmouth.

We were a bit late in the year for our visit to Dartmouth so were so glad of our cosy warm garden apartment with its comfortable big bed. A welcome vase of fresh flowers and refreshments after our 6 hour journey awaited us. Absolutely spotless , thank you Hilary.

We have just had a wonderful stay at Melverley House and have already booked to come again. The rooms were to the highest standard, very clean, and beautifully furnished with a very comfortable bed. We enjoyed the beautiful view over the River Dart. Hilary was very welcoming and her breakfast was delicious.

We have just returned from Dartmouth having stayed at Melverley House garden apartment. We feel very at home in the apartment so much so that we have visited every year since Hilary and Mike took over. Everywhere is spotlessly clean, there’s lots of storage space in the bedroom, and the bed is very comfortable. There is always a vase of fresh flowers on the table in the sitting room and Hilary welcomes us with tea and some of her home made biscuits – perfect after traveling. We really enjoy our visits to Melverley House garden apartment, and are already looking forward to going again next year.

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.
