    Perfect luxury

    Excellent stay. Melfort House is elegant & luxuriously decorated. We had a very peaceful relaxing stay. Matthew was the perfect host & we had a delicious breakfast.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    A most pleasant, charming and clean property in a very nice location; it was particularly good to be invited to have an evening meal despite not having booked one, saving the potential difficulty of a search to eat elsewhere in an era of restrictions where many hotels were only feeding their own residents. I would be very happy to stay there again in the future.

    Outstandingly good!

    My wife and I stayed for three nights. It was really excellent: very large room, very comfortable large bed, clean and excellent large bathroom; and a large lounge with lovely views for the guests to use. The breakfasts were also excellent, and the host can offer dinner given advance notice. We had one of his four-course dinners: very good, and we were pleased that each serving was not the customary oversize portions that other places so often want to serve. Note that the host chooses the menu, although you can let him know about any dietary restrictions you may have. And yes, there is wifi available free. My wife and I have stayed in various places in the Melfort area, over many years. This is the best!

    Fabulous stay

    An excellent host. Very serene and peaceful place. We arrived late and hadn’t prebooked dinner however Mathew was kind enough to offer 3 course meal - spare rib, Salmon and Rhubarb, ginger and vanilla plus to finish a French press fresh coffee. Breakfast was nice. Decor of the place, crockery and cutlery are highly selective. Mathew was helpful to guide us what to see around.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Great stay, excellent food

    Overall our stay at Melfort House was fantastic. What a lovely, clean, appointed country house this is. The owner went out his way to make us feel at home and was able to give us some dinner on our arrival owing to other places all being closed due to Covid-19. Both dinner and breakfast were excellent. The only slight negative was the wi-fi reception and tv in our room, but I guess in normal times we would not have spent as much time there!

    Disappointed

    This is not a fair review as we never got to stay there, Matthew phoned me well in advance to explain that he would not be able to be there and had booked us into Glenmore Country House for the night That was another story

    Wonderful welcome at this hotel

    We only stayed two nights but wished we could stay more. Our bedroom was huge and very well appointed. The host, Mathew, could not do enough for us. It certainly felt like being at the home of a friend. The many gardens were well maintained with a wonderful display of flowers. We even saw a deer sleeping in the corner of one section of the many gardens.
