Accommodation at The Melville

The Melville offers ensuite bedrooms with minifridges and seating.

If you wish to book ROOM ONLY occupancy on any of our rooms, please book using the main calendar and then send a follow-up email to advise that you require room only. We will then deduct £10 a night from your rates (standard occupancy for two people). Single person occupancy is also available at a £10 deduction per night by arrangement. This will be confirmed to you by email.

Additional information:

The Melville is just a five-minute level walk to the town and harbour. Guest rooms are on the first and second floors – this being a lovely Victorian townhouse – so, sadly, The Melville is not suitable for people with difficulties climbing stairs.

Please note that parking needs to be reserved. This is subject to availability at the time of request. We have a number of onsite parking spaces, but can ensure that you have free-of-charge parking on arrival either in parking areas neighbouring The Melville for which we can provide a pass or nearby. The spaces on the driveway are prioritised for direct bookings. Please note that parking is at your own risk and The Melville cannot accept any responsibility for damage caused to vehicles.

Other room information:

The Melville accepts children aged fourteen years and over. The Melville does not have a public toilet, so guests need to use their own ensuite facilities. Pets cannot be accommodated in the guest rooms at The Melville, although the guesthouse is not suitable for people with fur or pet allergies.
