“Melba House B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

We stayed at Melba House for 4 nights over Easter. Sue was a lovely, very accommodating host. The rooms were very comfortable and clean, and the breakfast was great too. I would highly recommend staying here.

Upon arriving we felt so welcomed by Sue and Issy, and then we entered the Dame Nellie room... WOW!!!! Absolutely amazing! Everything you could ever ask for in a room. We had a log fire, a hot spa and a massive king bed to relax and unwind. Simply fantastic! We'll be going back for certain!

Room Tip: If you want to treat yourself to real luxury - The Dame Nellie Suite!

We stayed in the Dame Melba room for 2 nights. Our stay was very relaxing, helped by the nice natured Izabella. Sue was extremely helpful and breakfast was terrific. We would definitely recommend this B&B.

Thank you Sue for a wonderful day and night at the Melba House.
There was a freshly baked chocolate cake waiting for us as we walked in from a rainy, but beautiful day. We stayed in two of the three rooms, Dame Nellie and Dame Edna, both were very clean and comfortable, fresh cookies, tea and port.
Breakfast the next morning was in our room due to the weather. The breakfast was delicious.
Sue recommended some great hikes and a wonderful restaurant for dinner.
The Inn, is just minutes from a view of the three sisters.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong.

we stayed in the Dam Melba room for 2 nights. A very relaxing 3 days. Sue is a very good hostess. Breakfast were hearty and nice. This would have to be the Best B & B in Blue Mountain.
We will be back for sure.

Room Tip: Room with a spa is a good indication of a good standard room.

Wonderful 3 days in the Dame Edna room. Sue an Issy were very friendly. Sue offered lots of helpful ideas for dining and sight seeing. We specially loved the using the open fire, and the after dinner glass of port, and of course the delightful spa bath with lots and lots of bubbles.
Ingrid

Room Tip: Dame Edna room is quiet and has a very comfortable bed.

This was our second time staying at Melba House. Last time was Dame Joan and this time was Dame Nellie. My husband and I had an amazing time on both occasions but the spa in Nellie is definitely a bonus - along with ample of towels, candles, Molten Brown toiletries. Our stay there always feels luxurious with breakfast served with silverware and always a gourmet cake on stand for all to share in the hallway.
The only thing I would recommend is to add some sort of heating in the bathroom as it can get a little cool and I think Dame Joan had a heating towel rack (don't fully remember) which Nellie doesn't.

Room Tip: Dame Joan is smaller but newer room without the spa - good value if you are not interested in the sp...
