We’ve just got home after a lovely three course meal at the Melbreak. The food was excellent, tasty and beautifully presented. The staff were efficient and friendly, especially Emma who served us. Very attractive decor and very Covid safe, thank you, see you again soon.

Loved the Melbreak. Modern, stylish, spacious room, huge bathroom and a walk in shower which was a real bonus for me (I'm disabled). Having the rooms at the back of the property meant they were really peaceful, definitely appreciated. Excellent food and lovely staff. Thanks for a great stay, looking forward to seeing you again soon.

Staff could not have been more friendly and helpful, extremely welcoming on a cold Sunday night after travelling all day. We had 2 rooms, one was modern with a shower and modern appliances, the other had a shower over a bath and was probably in need of modernising but even still was perfectly clean and comfortable, with everything we needed. The breakfast was wonderful, we were there the minute they opened and it was not a problem to have hot meals immediately. Would not hesitate on staying here again! Thanks to all the team at Melbreak!
