I have stayed at Melville House twice a week over the at year due to business. Needing a clean, quiet and comfortable place to stay was my main priority, Melville House has certainly lived up to these expectations. Each room has its own charm and have all been tastefully furnished. Helen, your host is there every morning in the kitchen...

I love Melville House so much that I stay there every week, for 2-3 nights. Helen's customer service is excellent, she really goes out of her way and nothing is ever a problem. I have a very full on job at the University and Melville just feels like home away from home for me. The rooms are always very clean...

I am a resident of the Northern Rivers and a regular visitor to Lismore for recitals, performances and the occasional business meeting.I have found it more convenient to stay at Melville House with Helen as opposed to booking into a room at a motel. Helen's company is a genuine pleasure as she juggles the cooking of breakfast for her guests...

We stayed only one night, Helen contacted us very soon after our booking was made and made us feel very welcome. Our accommodation was upgraded to a beautiful big room. Breakfast was included. Great value for money.

This place has a charming, timeless elegance. It makes you think of grander times. A place rich in Art Deco touches. Slightly worn at the edges but welcoming. I stayed here for a week a couple of months ago. The trip was only supposed to be for a few days but a medical emergency with my daughter extended my stay....
