If you are looking for a great place to stay in Lismore look no further. Melville House is a 4.5 Star art deco Bed and Breakfast that is superb. I love sitting in the kitchen and having a cuppa with Helen the owner. She is the ultimate host and treats all her guests like family.read more

Melville house is a delightful home-away-from-home with unique character. I booked just for an overnight stay but still was given an upgrade after a cancellation to a lovely room with charming decor, luxurious bed and garden views. Very quiet. I was sorry I didn't have time to make use of the pool and other facilities, they looked inviting.. Helen was a welcoming, and helpful host and easy to communicate with. I recommend Melville House and will stay there again.read more

What a jewel of a place! Melville house is many things: welcoming, quirky, affordable, friendly, fun and beautiful. We had the most wonderful stay here with our dog June. Charles the owner was lovely, easy going and communicative. We enjoyed swimming in the deep and luxurious pool, and June sniffing about in the spacious garden. It's hard to find quality dog friendly accommodation and this place does not disappoint. We look forward to coming back.read more

First impressions last!Read so many lovely reviews about this property and was looking forward to book our stay there. Visited the website and attempted to book via the online form. Unfortunately, it couldn’t be done due to some website error. The dates have to be manually typed as it’s just showing 2020 and I can edit it. Attempted twice and same issue occurred.I decided to contact the property and book over the phone. A gentleman answered the phone and advised me to email instead.I went back to the website and selected the Email option under contact and there was an instruction fill up the online form with no email address on it.Knowing that I had issues with the online form, I contacted the property and spoke to the same gentleman, Mike. Explained to Mike and before I could finish, he rudely interrupted me and said “I didn’t ask you to use the online form! I asked to you email me for the booking!” I have to ask Mike to pause and shared that I couldn’t find an email address in the website and explained that I was advised to fill up the online form instead. Mike, didn’t apologise, just provided me the email address and ended the call.Really disappointed with Mike’s attitude! I decided not to book Melville House anymore and book elsewhere instead! Thanks, Mike!read more

The small room, on key ring and on their website is called the shoebox for good reason. I am a size 8 and getting round the bed was just enough room.Couldn't use the table in the room as the TV (that didn't work) is on it.The bathroom separate is beautiful and roomy, however, it comes off the main hall and this is viewed from kitchen, eating area, and anyone moving to and from same. It was very cold when we visited, and mo heating in the bathroom.Your tea and coffee are on top of a fridge in the bathroom....so is the loo...notcsure how that is OK with hygiene rules...yew. we made our cups of tea in the kitchen.The owner is obnoxious and rude.The breakfast .... cereal, toast, fruit .... you can't use kitchenWe used to live in Lismore, it used to be run by a lady who was either really pleasant or obnoxious. However, I have attended meetings in the front rooms on several occasions and friends have stayed. She used to cater we, and even when rude, the service was good.Would have loved to book one of the beautiful upstairs bedrooms, but they weren't available.We had booked and paid for two nights. We left after one. Emailed the owner to advise same but had no correspondence back. I didn't expect a refund but I woukd have thought a 'sorry you have cancelled.....'I wouldn't recommend this establishment, but accommodation in Lismore is hard to get, so if you have to stay here, book the upstairs room-or at a PINCH the ensuited double room. Not much bigger than the shoebox.Our experience dealing with the Lismore City Motor Inn was totally opposite and that is where we will stay on future trips and I would recommend.Our weekend with pur kids was marred by this experience, as if there isn't enough to deal with when they have lost everything and are couch surfing.read more
