This is a lovely old grand home, albeit in need of renovating, all that said it is a very pleasant stay. Rooms are large and clean with air conditioning, tv & wifi. B/f is available, which is good. They also have a pool.

The first time we pulled into the driveway we smiled! A classic old home oozing with history and character and when we pressed the bell Helen appeared to greet us with a big smile. We had originally booked a medium room as the others were taken. Helen told us that she had a cancellation and proceeded to offer us the a superior room at the same rate. The room was beautiful and we wanted for nothing, along with the gardens and the huge pool, an oasis! We have just recently stayed at Melville House again and once again we were overwhelmed with the hospitality, especially the grand breakfast Helen cooked up for us. Helen is the hostess with the mostest! even down to ironing the cloth serviettes. If you are going to stay in Lismore you stay at Melville House, it's the best! Thanks Helen

Needed somewhere last minute and a friend recommended this place. Wasn't sure what I'd be in for so was very relieved to find it was lovely. Very clean and comfortable. Helen was lovely. Definitely recommend.

Helen, our host, was very accommodating upgrading our booking, explaining the history and features of her very interesting property. Very comfortable bedding in air-conditioned bedroom, enormous bathroom with marble bathtub and large shower recess, supplied with quality towels, and bath robes. A cooked breakfast was included at no extra charge. Very large play area at rear alongside a great swimming pool. Have no trouble recommending this property which is situated very close to a shopping center, take away's, and convenience stores. From a very satisfied senior couple who will most likely return again in the near future.

We loved staying at the Melville House. We only really needed a bed to sleep and own amenities and it's exactly what we got. Helen was polite and a great host. It's nice and close to Lismore as well and only 5 mins from the main shopping centre. We also had a spot for our car and a welcomed aircon for the hot Lismore summer. All in all a great stay!
