Positive Reviews

Incredibly lovely hosts make you feel at home

Everyone loves the hosts here, because of their wonderful personalities, attention to details, and round the clock availability. They do everything they can to provide you with a fantastic holiday, and are also well praised for their freshly prepared and delicious breakfasts. Staying at their place feels a lot like staying with beloved family.

Rooms are spotless, comfy, and beautiful

The rooms are an absolute pleasure to stay in! Fluffy towels and linens, very cosy bed, and a comfy décor and ambience create a very enjoyable accommodation. They're also immaculate upon check-in and maintained at that same level of cleanliness. Guests love the rooms so much that they begrudge having to return home.

Fantastic location for Lake District exploration

Melrose Guesthouse is a great starting and ending point for exploring the Lake District trails, gardens, waterfalls, and other delightful Nature spots that make it such a popular place. The inn is also conveniently located for checking out Ambleside by car, bike, public transit, or on foot.

Negative Reviews

Parking is sometimes difficult

Parking is not easy for everyone. It's sometimes difficult to get a convenient spot, so talk to the hosts about where it's best and least expensive to get a good place.

Bathrooms feel a bit cramped

The only downside to the rooms is that the bathrooms feel a bit small, especially for the room's rate. It may make showering, or laying out travel items and toiletries feel slightly cramped.

Nothing else negative about this inn

So far, no other negative opinion has been expressed by guests about this bed and breakfast.
