Location suited us for our needs. The room was large and the bed was comfortable.
Day 1 after check-in: written note left in room “Cooker broken, no cooked breakfasts” (for the period of our stay). No mention of any refund or discount either. TV is a small old analogue 4:3 aspect with a digibox, but offering no picture. Day 2: breakfast consisted of a couple of shopping bags dumped on the serving tables. Came back to room at tea time to find credit card receipt, full payment taken without reference, yet still two nights to go! “Complimentary” tea bags not replaced. Day 3: breakfast comprised day 2’s leftovers. Toilet roll running low not replaced. Still no more tea bags. Day 4 (check-out): breakfast comprised original leftovers from day 2. Toilet roll ran out. And: roller blind in toilet broken: towels rough and fraying; curtains hanging off rail; never saw proprietors or staff after checking in.
Breakfast was excellent, lots of choice including a hot breakfast. The cook even went out his way to buy syrup for the waffles for our 2nd morning there. Plenty of parking, beautifully landscaped garden with fish ponds and deck. Very friendly owner who makes you feel at home. Great place to stay in London.
The Melrose suited our needs perfectly.location perfect, room brilliant , breakfast super,a home from home. Thank you.
Nice place to stay. Family owned. The guy who cooks breakfast is very nice, I've never seen anyone take so much pride in cooking a breakfast to perfection. Landlady is very professional.
The room I stayed in was slightly noisy at breakfast but nothing excessive. Lovely garden however I don't smoke and didn't like to be in the garden breathing in other people's smoke.
Ideal location for us. Comfortable room Lovely breakfast
