Attention to detail.
The location was excellent and the rooms were lovely. The staff were very friendly
Wonderful hosts, in a perfect location.
Friendly staff in a great location with use of a nearby spa
Alan was fantastic. He welcomed us and offer lots of super advice and had plenty of options for all fitness and weather types. Our room was clean and warm, which is a bonus when you come in from a day up on the fells/mountains. The breakfast was fantastic, and it was lovely to have such a wide range of options of cooked.
Maybe a slightly later option than 8.30am for breakfast. Our room had intermittent wi-fi as we were on the top floor but we still got 3G signal.
As i told the owners, Alan and Lynn. Our stay was actually faultless. The room was lovely, Clean and modern. Fantastic location. We would definitely return.
Great location, great guest house, Alan & Lynn more than helpful with our requests.
Perfect you will be lucky to get better than the melrose
The stay was excellent and staff were most welcoming and friendly.
Breakfast was lovely and my 7 yr old was very well looked after. Room was very cosy and exceptionally clean!!
The room was simply stunning. It was the basement family room. The kids found it to be such and adventure going down into the basement. It was spacious and beautifully furnished, particularly the bathroom. The location was fantastic also and the breakfast delicious. The staff couldn't be more welcoming.
the attention to detail, the cleanness of the guest accommodation and the general warm welcome from the owner at an outstanding cost
Location Helpfulness of Staff Friendly staff Excellent Breakfast
Nothing to fault - very enjoyable stay.
Very nice cozy hotel, made us feel like almost back home! Staff are very friendly and with professional manner. Facilities are new and fictional, will recommend this one to my friends.
Booked at short when the weather forecast looked good. Great place to stay in central Ambleside. Knowledgeable hosts without being pushy, warm and cosy room, excellent breakfast. Will stay again.
One of the top Guest Houses in Ambleside. Room 1, extremely comfortable and spacious with a super king bed. Great nights sleep. Melrose has all the extras that some guest houses in the area don't. Nearby lockable parking for just £3 day, excellent if you don't want your new/classic car scratched. Drying room for wet walking clothes and lockable storage for cycles. It means that the Melrose caters for just about anyone visiting the lakes.
Excellent location, very welcoming, very clean & warm. bedroom was a nice size so was the bed. Mattress & blankets were of a high quality, bathroom was very nice & compact. Good choice of breakfasts. Felt more at home than at a Hotel, didn't want to leave the place :).
Friendly staff, Large room with huge comfy bed, Great location, Very clean
I really don't know where to start with this review. Its a 5 Star B&B! 1) At the offset both Lynn and Alan were very responsive prior to my arrival responding to the queries I had over both email and telephone. They continued to be that way even after I arrived and stayed for the 8nights! 2) The room is a reasonable size as with other properties in the area and it had a nice view of the area around it and the Cathedral. 3) Room cleanliness was top notch, spotless carpets and clean linen, sheets and mattress! 4) The toilet was very nice. Warm flooring and a shower cabin too! 5) Breakfast on the house was another highlight. Home cooked fresh food served to me everyday with a smile. They even customized the different options according to our requirements as we stayed longer and did not want to get fed up with eating the best items too many times. 6) We were given total freedom to come and go as we pleased and this was great as we were out late nights some days. 7) Excellent and high speed wifi in the rooms as well as lobby downstairs 8) At the end of it all, we had a quickest checkout ever - 3mins flat! As I type this, I know I'm just covering a little of what I really experienced - I could not recommend the place enough. Its great value for money. If you go elsewhere, as several of my friends did for a cheaper price, remember you will compromise on one or more of the items above. Its a great value for money and we enjoyed their company and hospitality!
Nothing I can think off!
Comfort, Cleanliness, and Food
Parking Lack of.
Great accommodation and breakfast, very convenient in centre of town. Very friendly and helpful owners.
We have stayed here twice now & love the personable feel about it. Great location, nice addition having access to the nearby Salutation hotel spa, breakfast is wonderful, fresh homemade cooking. The only small negative is the comfort of the bed, it was too hard and short so our legs were squashed against the metal frame. The rooms were a little too hot as well but that's just personal preference. Overall great place to stay
We enjoyed everything about The Melrose. The staff were brilliant, the rooms spotlessly clean and very tastefully decorated. The Bed was very comfy, and the room catered for our every need. The location is excellent and central to all amenities. A fantastic place.
There wasn't anything at all that we didn't like. It was completely faultless.
Location and full english breakfast!
