Melrose Guest House
Ranked #7 of 155 Whitby B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 22, 2013

Joanne, the owner, is very friendly and professional. The standard of decor is excellent throughout (has been newly decorated). Everything is immaculate, down to white tablecloths and napkins at breakfast. Large, comfortable room. Good, substantial breakfast. In a quiet, elevated position with plenty of parking on the road outside. A pleasant, short walk to all of the attractions of Whitby.

Highly recommended, and other guesthouses could learn a thing or two from Melrose!.

Room Tip: Room 1 is large and has a seaview.

Just arrived home from Whitby and our 3 night stay at The Melrose guesthouse. Can only say good things about this excellent place. Joanne is really attentive, and nothing is too much trouble.
The room bedding and bathroom were immaculate The breakfasts were superb and once again the quality and service were great. Me and my wife would have no hesitation in going back there again and recommending to friend.s and relatives Chris and Joanne are great hosts.

Just returned from a five night break at Melrose Guest House we will definitely stay again. Our room was very spacious and comfortable with a sea view. On arrival we were met by Joanne and Chris and a very welcome cup of coffee. Breakfast was cooked beautifully and there was plenty of it with as much coffee/tea as we wanted and everywhere was spotlessly clean. We really enjoyed our stay can't wait to go back.

My wife and I - Joan and David from Wakefield - have just returned from three nights at Melrose Guest House. I've always wondered how good a place needs to be to attract an Excellent rating on this site. I suppose it needs to be spotlessly clean and well decorated and maintained. I reckon the breakfast needs to be hearty, wholesome and tasty. I guess the owners have to be welcoming, obliging and friendly, professional and totally organised. I think a nice touch would be for mints to be available in a glass dish in the entrance hall. Melrose Guest House and Joanne and Chris have all of these in abundance - a lovely place run by lovely people. Thanks.

My wife and I planned to stay at Melrose Guest House for three nights. We booked from Australia.
When we arrived Joanne and Chris met us, Chris arranged parking for us, he took our bags while Joanne showed us to our room. In the meantime Chris made us a cup of tea. A very warm welcome. The rooms were very spacious, clean and bright. The breakfast was excellent ( Chris hid in the kitchen and cooked while Joanne was the perfect hostess in the dining room). We extended our stay at Whitby and therefore Melrose Guest House for a further 2 nights. My wife left some small items in the room when we left and Joanne took the trouble in sending them back to us in Australia. Thank you. R&C
