Melrose Bed and Breakfast


Check In: 15:00|Check Out: 10:00
Hours: 7am to 10pm


Melrose is a charming house and a great example of the Arts and Crafts era of the late 18th century and we have decorated it to reflect that style. Our house is located in a quiet street just off a main route. You can walk in either direction to cafes, shops and the central city is only a short interesting 15 minute walk. Hagley Park is within an eight minute walk and provides great walking, running and cycling routes if you are wanting to exercise or enjoy some nature. Our aim is to provide an interesting and comfortable place to call home during your stay. We encourage you to use parts of the house during your time with us. Accommodation options include three guest suites within the main Melrose house or Little Melrose; a self-contained cottage. Your hosts, Elaine & David
