We were attending a friends funeral in town and the owner Helen upgraded us to one of her apartments closer to where the wake was to be held. We then came back to Melville House for breakfast. Absolutely stunning bed and breakfast. Food lovely. Gorgeous garden and pool for the summer time. Located near all the major places. Highly recommend.

Best of beds best of breakfast at a very reasonable rate on beautiful older family home. You can opt out of breakfast if you choose and loner term guests can negotiate the rate by week or month. Caution ..Some have stayed years. Helen is the perfect gracious host.

The first thing you notice about Melville House is that Mike and Helen are very down to earth and no nonsense friendly. I felt I was being welcomed into their home, made more like a real home with all the beautiful paintings Helen has collected over the years, displayed throughout. It was never too much trouble to be given more...

We spent just one night in this beautiful house in Lismore whilst on a roadtrip, but it was truly wonderful. We had been drawn into booking here by the homey, spacious appeal of the pictures on this site, and I'm glad to say the real thing was all that we expected and more! Helen was extremely friendly and helpful, from...

We were very lucky to spend 3 wonderful nights at Melville House - my dad's comment on when he was shown his room "I don't think I will want to go home" & that says a lot. You are transported back in time to a wonderfully restored Art Deco home that has become a memorable experience for all of us...
