Situated in a busy street, this guesthouse is a little gem. Arriving you don't expect much but when you walk in you are greeted by warm, friendly staff and are soon to discover the beautiful gardens that surround each room to give you a relaxing environment. The rooms are large and walk out onto beautiful gardens. With underfloorheating you don't...

I enjoyed staying at Melleneys, due to the warm atmosphere and friendly service. Staff is very friendly and willing to go the extra mile. Each room is private, with seperate entrances and a private little garden. And the breakfast is excellent!

We'd stayed at Melleneys twice 9 & 10 years ago. Going back can be a risk - we'd had such a great time previously and we didn't want to be disappointed. We weren't. Melleneys is still the best B & B we've come across in its class, and, this time, after staying there for two weeks before touring the garden...

Don't stay here. The rooms are so cold in winter I had to keep the air conditioner on all night. The owner has posted the most ridiculous bossy signs in the rooms. They make you feel like a criminal. You get one tiny piece of soap. The beds are cheap and the mattresses thin and nasty. The only redeeming feature...

I've been staying at Melleney's on and off for nearly 14 years. I recently stayed there again and was delighted at the friendly and professional service that the guesthouse still offers. My room was luxurious and tucked away in a tranquil garden and although situated on a busy road I felt that I was somewhere in the country. I enjoyed...

Melleneys is a beautiful guest house which is sadly owned and run by people who should not be doing what they are doing. We were treated like second class citizens and after advising we would have another 6-10 guests coming during the week, the rudeness continued - resulting us in leaving and them losing out on business! Sad when the...
