Couldn't wish for a better place to stay during Whitby goth weekend. Fantastic hosts in Emma and Dave where nothing is too much trouble. Will be returning later in the year for another relaxing time with more of the same.

Our first take on Whitby Goth Weekend and our stay at Melrose made it all the better. Emma and David deserve all the praise as they have created a lovely home from home. They are superb hosts who bend over backwards to make your stay memorable. The rooms are immaculate and the beds are to die for. The brekkies are...

Once again Emma & David welcomed us into their home & looked after us brilliantly. Nothing is ever too much trouble & the rooms are always spotless & very comfy & the food is exceptional. We would highly reccomend the Melrose Guesthouse to everyone (but leave some room for us!)

This was a great place to stay. Emma and Dave are very friendly and welcoming. Room 2 was lovely: bright, airy and immaculately clean, and the bed was just right. Breakfasts were excellent with something to please everyone. We enjoyed the position and it was within easy walking distance along by the coast to Whitby centre.

We stayed at Melrose for a few days earlier this month,& enjoyed our stay. It's well situated, just a pleasant walk from the town centre,& you can park outside the B&B using the permit provided. The hosts were welcoming, our room was pleasantly decorated & the bed was comfy. There's plenty of choice for breakfast & the food was fresh,...

Forth visit to Melrose and the standards keep improving. Stayed in room 2, modern 4 poster bed, super decoration, olde world Christmas feel to the decorations. Breakfast kippers were amazing, cooked to perfection. See you again next year.

Emma and David were great hosts. Made us very welcome from the outset. The guest house was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The cooked breakfast was very good and plentiful. Easy five-minute walk into town, where we enjoyed great restaurants and a terrific atmosphere. To say nothing of the beautiful town and scenery in the winter sunshine. A lovely weekend.
