“Family run hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

A lovely hotel and great value for the price. The family who run this hotel are very warm and friendly and this is reflected throughout the hotel in the atmosphere and decor.
A good breakfast with not to miss home preserved fruits which were delicious (on offer at the time were quince, apricots and cherries. At dinner all the mains automatically came with a meze plate all of which were well prepared.
We stayed here for four nights and with our visit to the travertines, a day out to Aphrodisias and just generally chilling out at this lovely hotel, we found the length of stay here fully justified. After dinner we enjoyed walking (10 minutes) to the outdoor cafe at the base of the travertines. Sipping a coffee whilst gazing at the moon/floodlit "snowscape" was a wonderful finish to the day.

We enjoyed our stay here. Beautiful courtyard restaurant overlooking pool with a lovely atmosphere and even better food. I think we had the same room as Cecio, as our shower also leaked onto the floor and our glass shelf above the sink looked like it was about to fall off the wall. Also the bathroom door was almost impossible to shut (but maybe I'm just daft). I felt these things were easy to overlook, however, as everything else was so nice. Especially the owners who were very friendly. One slightly odd thing, though not necessarily bad, was that our entire bed was replaced halfway through our stay. We came back in the evening on our second day and found that our standard double had been replaced by a large circular bed that didn't really fit the room (and was a little hard for our tastes). Not sure why they did this? or why they didn't just wait until after we checked out the next morning? But it didn't ruin our stay, by any means, and we would happily return.

Apart from the great interior design, good restaurant and cosy swimming pool this hotel has something very unique - the most friendly and helpful hotel owners I have ever met. Thanks to them my stay was smooth and relaxing (they recommended an amazing spa).

Our experience here was quite good overall, but there were just too many little annoyances to warrant a better rating.

The hotel was easy to find (good signage on the streets) and the manager, Umi, is extremely competent and knowledgeable. Also the pamphlet available in every room with details about Pamukkale and Aphrodisias is very useful. Rooms were clean and mostly functional. And dinner here at the hotel was excellent, much better than anything else we had in Pamukkale, so I recommend it unreservedly.

Now for the not-so-good bits. The hotel made an odd impression upon arrival, with little staff to attend to us and piles of used linens lying in the corridors. The bathroom could use some work, as the shower leaked onto the floor and the glass shelf above the sink was at such an angle that my toothpaste kept sliding off. And it was noisy at night (at least on the first floor)--we could hear plenty of noise from other rooms and from the hallway. Maybe the walls are a bit thin. Breakfast was mildly disappointing, considering how good dinner was.

I had a great stay here. Great service, pleasant people, good food, a clean room with private balcony by olive trees. Only downside is that the bathroom had leaky toilet tank and sink. Located in a quieter part of the town and easy 10min walking distance to hierapolis.

Melrose House has it all. The rooms are clean & spacious. The staff are welcoming & will assist with any of your needs. They will drive you to the top entrance of the Hieropolis or to your bus stop. Breakfast can be taken on their delightful terrace, but even better is to eat their beautiful home cooked meals using vegetables from their own garden. Meals can be eaten indoors or out, & are probably better than anything available in town. Highly recommended.

A group of 8 friends arrived at Melrose House for one night.
The owners were very welcoming and provided us with great spirit and service during our brief stay. We really do appreciate the smaller/boutique hotels where you receive the personal touch.
The rooms were all individually decorated, comfortable and clean. Our rooms here were larger than we had experienced in some other hotels. One of our couples even had the surprise of a circular bed in their room.
The courtyard was very relaxing and the food at the restaurant was really good. We had both dinner and breakfast at the restaurant. Thanks to the owner for the choice of baklava and icecream, or icecream and baklava for dessert at dinner - lol.
The is also a good size pool beside the courtyard, but we didn't have time to take a dip.
At the back of the hotel I noticed there are also backpacker style accommodations for those interested in more budget style accommodation.
