On walking through the door my wife and I were immediately made welcome and at ease - the offer of tea or coffee helped in this. Our room was very spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable. Breakfasts consisted of plentiful, well-cooked food. I have honestly never had better hosts and accommodation anywhere.

We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. We had arranged to meet a friend, who lived locally, at the Melrose once we had checked in - however, travel delays meant that we all arrived at once. This did not phase David, our host; he helped us to our room with our bags and brought us... More

Our 4th visit to the Melrose! We were in Whitby for the Northern Soul Weekender. We were a little apprehensive prior to arrival as we knew that there had been a change of ownership since our last visit! No need to worry however, SAME warm welcome, SAME exceptional high standards, SAME excellent breakfast, exceptionally clean throughout! Booked for next year.

Had previously stayed here under previous owners and thought it was lovely. New owners Emma and David have taken it to another level. Spotlessly clean, comfortable airy rooms, great breakfasts and nothing is too much trouble for Emma and David. If staying in Whitby I would recommend this place.
