Can't fault the place. Warm welcome, great room, fab breakfast, friendly hosts, lockup secure car parking 2 minutes away for only £3 a day. You MUST eat at Fellinis - 30 seconds across the road. Or their partner Zeffirellis. They do a cinema meal combo.

A great location to explore the Lakes from. Parking is on road using a disc which was never a problem. Comfortable room and great breakfast with cereal, fruit and full english if you want. We were very well looked after.

This was our second visit to Melrose and we would highly recommend it. Our room (2) was lovely and well equipped with everything we needed. Lynn and Alan are friendly and welcoming and have lots of knowledge of the local area. The guesthouse is ideally situated to be within walking distance of local amenities oh, and the breakfast is fantastic!...
