Good value for money place to stay in South london. I stayed here for two nights whilst on a course and it served us perfectly. We could park for free directly outside, we were walking distance to a brilliant pub with great food after a long day on a physical course and the B and B has a beautiful garden...

Had read mostly great reviews about this B&B. Decided to give it a try while the few negative reviews did leave a niggling doubt in my mind. Allow me to lay to rest all such doubts in the minds of all prospective guests. This place is just too good. Superbly maintained old Victorian home with all modern trappings and conveniences....

We stayed in a family room with enough space, had a place to sit and watch tv, 2 closets, cabinet with 3 drawers and big bathroom with bath and shower. 5 beds possible in this room, nice for a family. Only thing this room has as a drawback is the noise the toilet makes when it "pulls" water from the...

I have just finished reading all the reviews from the last three years and it is good to see that most of the people were happy with their stay at Melrose House! There are a few negative comments which...

Modern rooms with good bed, chest of drawers, 2 chairs and small table, small TV, water cooker with instant coffee or tea, brand new shower, good toilet with sink. Daily cleaning included! Breakfast was excellent. Apart from what was...

Take National Rail to Penge East station and it's about a 5 minute walk from there. Breakfast is very good, made to order and there is plenty of it. The man who cooks it is wonderful, so is the owner. Coffee, tea, and biscuits (cookies) provided in the room. Garden room 10 was very quiet and peaceful. Only downside was...

“Ask to get a room that opens into the garden and double check this before arrival. The garden is lovely & I had requested this, but was booked into another room.”

“Really not sure which room is my favourite, Room 3 has a 4 poster bed, Room 2 is the only room without an ensuite, but is a lovely big room with a full size bathroom across the hall for the exclusive use of this room, bathrobe provided. Room 6 is lovely with a juliet balcony over looking the conservatory, this was the original dining room. Room 10 has its own private sitting room The garden rooms in the Annex 8 and 9 are really pleasant and over look the courtyard garden with seating which is lovely to sit out in on a pleasant summer evening. These rooms have recently had their shower areas upgraded.”

“They seem to have room sizes and types to suit an extensive range from singles, doubles and family rooms to ones that will cater for larger family groups, on three floors, with an annexe in the garden area.”
