Lovely Guest House
Lovely guest house centrally located in a vibrant Lake District town. Spotless and well maintained throughout, we really enjoyed the comfort on offer here. We were in Room 1 which we could not fault. Lots of lovely touches throughout including a super comfy bed. You pre-order breakfast which we both really enjoyed. Lovely quality here.

Good place for visiting the Lakes
We arrived in a heavy rainstorm but were greeted with a warm welcome. Check in was efficient and we were soon in our room which was on the top floor (N.B. no lift). We had views over the roof tops to the fells. The room was a good size and very clean. It was well furnished with a new Smart TV (Netflix etc). The en-suite bathroom was small but contained shower, basin, toilet etc and seemed to have been recently refurbished. The breakfasts were good with plenty of choice and served to order. We had to indicate our time of eating the day before so that the service remained effcicient.The public areas and breakfast room were kept clean and there was a good supply of local information. The property is centrally located in Ambleside with easy access to the shops and eating establishments. It is also very near to the bus stops from where buses regularly go to other parts of the Lakes. The owners have worked very hard on their property and it shows.

Well worth a visit
Stayed here for one night, while passing through. Room was spotlessly clean, as was the whole guest house. The breakfast was delicious, cooked to perfection. Would definitely recommend the Melrose, and would certainly book in here in the future 😊
