Really can't fault this little gem of a B&B! Super friendly and welcoming hosts. We stayed in the King Superior room which was stunning. Decor and cleanliness was 5* Breakfast was fresh and beautifully cooked every morning with a fantastic choice. From now on Melrose Guesthouse is my number one accommodation for any future stays in the beautiful Lakes.

We had a ground floor room (No 8) towards the rear of the house which was extremely clean and well kept. It had a very comfortable bed...
