Melville House is a great B&B and Helen is a charming and attentive host. The rooms are very comfortable and very clean, and the location is convenient to everything in Lismore. Helen knows where all the best restarurants and breakfast has everything you would want.

Clean large room with newly renovated bathroom. Wireless internet provided which was a plus for work. TV & fridge in the room. Air conditioned. The owner had a heap of local knowledge of region and eateries and how to get around. Maps and info for Bangalow & Byron which made it easier. Pool & garden area was huge but weather not suitable for swimming when I stayed. 2 min drive to uni and down the street to CBD area of Lismore.

This B and B has the potential to be outstanding but alas it does not live up to its potential.
The rooms are wonderful, well appointed, plenty of room and the bathrooms, grounds, swimming pool perfect. Even had wireless which for a travelling business person is a must, albeit a little slow.
During my one week stay however I had the following difficulties:
- The fridge had dead pizza in it on my arrival - and it stayed there the whole time I was there making the milk - which I had to find for myself smelly and full of pizza taste
- The room, whilst costing $100 a night was only serviced once for the entire week, and that was the last day I was there. The guest info and all advertising says that rooms are servcied daily and for that sort of money in a regional location you would expect that to be the case
- The room with selver service breakfast is $110 with $100 per night think that the difference in cost is also not justifiable - I am sure a fully cooked silver service breakfast would be worth more than that
- No credit card or EFT facilties
- a long way from town and eateries
- difficult parking or on the busy street parking only
