Fabulously comfortable room, immaculate and luxurious bathroom and overall excellent value for money. Beautiful views from the balcony in The Summer Breeze Room. Breakfast was the best I have had in a B&B, table service in the bedroom too. Short distance down to town, and benefits from being in a quieter location than right on the harbourside in my opinion.

We had two beautifully decorated, very spacious double rooms with wonderful views of the River Dart for a one-night stay while walking the Dart Valley Trail. Hilary was a wonderful host. She gave us very helpful email advice about buses before our stay and made us very welcome when we arrived. Her instructions on the most direct and pleasant way...

What a fantastic place, room very big with a view looking out over Dartmouth Harbour. Lovely en-suite bathroom with towels and shower gels included. Breakfast is served to your room every morning, choices from smoked fish, ham's, fresh fruit salad, yoghurt and toast. Very relaxed atmosphere and a great place to stay. I would certainly re visit next time we...

Within walking distance of town (albeit uphill!) the self catering accommodation was faultless. As described, clean and with all you might require and more. Little touches like providing tea towels, foil and cleaning clothes with independent access made it a perfect choice. We would definitely return. Hilary does B&B as it should be done.

Stayed here for 4 nights and really couldn't fault it. Beautiful room, interesting breakfasts, spotlessly clean and fabulous views. Hilary was very organised, efficient and friendly. We were given information on everything we needed, including a short cut down into town and buses to get back. Dartmouth is a wonderful place to visit and Melverley is the perfect place to...

We stayed for 10 nights at Melverley House for our summer holiday in Dartmouth. We arrived later than expected due to delays on the motorway but it was no problem for Hilary who provided us with a nice pot of coffee which was just what was required!! Melverley House itself is spotless and Hilary a very welcoming host. Our bed...

Stayed a few times at Melverley House and our stay this time was once again perfect. Can't fault anything about it, room, breakfast.. If you are looking for somewhere to stay that is friendly, spotlessly clean and quiet and with lovely views over Dartmouth (we stay in the room withe balcony) then Melverley House is definitely it. Hope we will...

I stayed in Melverley House for a long weekend with a friend. Dartmouth is very beautiful and our room had fantastic views of the sea and over the town. The room was immaculate, as was the bathroom (which was a very good size with a bath and overhead shower and heated tiles.) Breakfast was delicious, I had the smoked salmon....

Booked one night in Dartmouth (place we've always wanted to visit) on our way to Cornwall. Wish we'd stayed a week. Delightful accommodation in a stylish, well equipped, spotless, very comfortable room with glorious views. Hilary, the owner, was a mine of information about the picturesque walking route down the hill, the best way to get back up (avoiding the...

We stayed for a couple of nights as part of a very hastily re-arranged holiday after our Rhine cruise was cancelled. I travel a lot around UK on business and try to use inns, small hotels and b&b's wherever possible, and Melverley House goes straight into my top ten places to stay - in fact, probably into the top five....
