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...

Thank you for doing a review - we try our best to make sure guests enjoy Glastonbury. It helps when the sun shines, and we are really lucky to be situated at foot of Glastonbury Tor and next to Chalice Well.

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...

My sister and I stayed at Melrose House for this year's Beltane celebrations. As requested we were in the beautifully appointed Tor room which has a fantastic view of the lovely gardens and the Tor itself. To wake at 5am on May Day morning and see people making their way up and down the Tor in the morning mist was...

We had the room at the back so it was quiet and peaceful even when the windows were open. Room was very big. Breakfast options were too much and we could not take advantage of all of it. The site is just the right distance from town. Wi-Fi was good.

We stayed in England for the first time and it will not be our last! The first night in the Melrose House (Avalon Rome) in Glastonbury was wonderful. Very familiar and relaxing. After our trip through South England we stayed in the Melrose House again (Tor Room) and it was a bit like coming home! Thanks very much to our...
