We got more than we bargained for when we booked a twin room. Sarah had given us a twin room in her annexe with lounge and kitchenette included. All immaculately presented and very tasteful and modern. I could have spent the entire stay in the bathroom, it was so beautiful! We enjoyed having time just sitting in the garden watching...

Don't usually stay in B and Bs so rather uncertain what to find. However, this was an excellent experience. Melrose House is easy to find on the edge of Glastonbury and immediately below the Tor. Very comfortable double room with nice big bathroom. All facilities of a hotel in a family house. Breakfasts all home made - again excellent. Views...

Melrose House was much more than we expected.... beautifully decorated and comfortable bedrooms (with tea and coffee making failities), a stunning house and garden at the foot of Glastonbury Tor, yummy breakfast and all within a short walking distance from Glastonbury High Street and Chalice Wells garden.

We arrived mid afternoon and were made very welcome by Sarah. We were shown to our rooms which were immaculate and very well furnished with a stunning view of Glastonbury Tor. Sarah was extremely helpful during our stay giving us advice as to where to eat and what there is to do in the area.

We stayed for one night when we had an event at nearby Millfield School. It's a perfect venue for visiting the school which is just a few minute's drive away. Sarah, the owner, was wonderful and so welcoming. She got up extra early to cook us breakfast to order. Our room (Avalon) was super; comfortable beds, cosy and with a...

I loved staying here for three reasons. My room was beautifully furnished, and generously fitted out. With a high quality bathroom, tea making set up and even a sofa to lounge on. I remember the beautiful bed was super super comfy. Parking was easy and in. Glastonbury that's a bonus in its own right. But the icing on this Melrose...

I stayed two nights in November. Such a lovely welcoming home to be in. On the lower slopes of the Tor with a gorgeous garden I was made to feel so welcome. The Avalon bedroom was perfect, overlooking the front of the house it was full of touches that made it feel warm, cozy. The duvet on the bed made...

On the lower slopes of the Tor, with the tower visible from the garden and some of the rooms, Melrose House is a welcoming and comfortable place to stay. The owners make sure you have everything you need, advise on places to visit or the best routes for walking and offer lifts to or from the town. Minutes from the...
