I picked the Coach House because of the excellent reviews it had from other guests and they were right. A peaceful stay with helpful hosts. Nothing was too much trouble and there were lots of helpful touches Read more

Response

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. You are right restaurants/pubs stop serving about 5 pm on Sundays except in 2 pubs who finish at 8 pm that is small country towns for you. Thank you again for your kind comments. Kind regards Beverley

Likes?
Equipment provided which meant that I could heat up a meal from Sainsburys just next door rather than eat out every night. Provision of a sharp knife for picnics and fridge space for supplies
Dislikes?
Limited options for vegetarian eating out in Melbourne, especially on Sunday evenings (everything shut by 20.00).

A Friendly Place to Stay

We received a friendly welcome as we stepped out of the car in the small car park and that set the tone of our 2 day stay. Nothing was too much trouble.
The room was well furnished with a comfortable king sized bed, wardrobe, dressing table and an arm chair. TV, tea and coffee facilities - which included fresh milk - and an iron and ironing board were also provided. The en suite was small but well designed. Read more

Working at Calke Abbey

Good proximity to Calke Abbey and plenty of good eateries in town makes this a good place to stay. Local walking and interesting features. Only drawback was the airport and given the warm weather requiring an open window, night flights went on just past midnight. Otherwise an excellent stay and good value. Read more

Excellent place to stay for a family holiday

We were in the area from California to visit relatives in Burton. The Coach House is well located, very clean and Beverly's breakfasts are fabulous. The beds were comfortable, and we felt very at home. Beverly is a wonderful hostess. Read more

Response

Thank you so much for your kind comments and review. Our English roads are very different from your USA roads and Swarkestone bridge does rate high on the "interesting" crossing list. Melbourne is of course worth the journey! Like the bridge it is very old and picturesque. Kind regards Beverley

Likes?
The beds were terrific. The set up was great: two parents in a good size bed in one room, and 3 young adult "children" in another room with 3 twin beds. The area was nice for them to take walks.
Dislikes?
The Swarkstone Bridge--it was so narrow and crooked, and we were white knuckled each time we had to drive it!

Worth every penny

We arrived in the afternoon after driving from Cardiff. The hosts were very welcoming and changed the bed from a double to a twin as we preferred. Meanwhile we were given a map of the town and went for a stroll. On our return the host was very friendly and spent time chatting with us about the town and nearby attractions. For dinner we went to the most excellent Indian restaurant a few doors down. We had a comfortable night and excellent breakfast. Read more

This was booked over the Internet and in the past have not got a room anything like the ones pictured, the room here on the other hand was exceeded my expectations ,although not the biggest of rooms , it's was clean, comfy and had all that I needed. The landlady was lovely was very helpful .the location was ideal for me as it was only 5 mins away from castle donnington race track, the village of Melbourne has good facilities small supermarket, resteraunt , pubs etc . Really enjoyed my stay Read more

A very enjoyable stay in a clean, friendly hotel

We recently moved to Sweden and were back in the UK for the first time to visit family and friends. We chose the Coach House as it was well located and offered a family room at a good price. A family room was quite difficult to obtain, most hotels/guest houses offered 2 rooms which would have been more expensive. Read more

Perfect Overnight Stay

We arrived at 7.30pm and we were very warmly welcomed. We got dressed and visited a few of the local pubs. We returned at about 10pm and called it a night. We had a good nights sleep and felt refreshed in the morning. Read more

Thank you for your comments, and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. The car park is a little small but generally we have enough spaces for our 6 rooms. It is possible to book a ground floor room to avoid the short flight of stairs to the first floor. Regards Beverley.

The welcome was warm, the breakfast was very good, the beds were comfortable, and all facilities worked.
Dislikes?
Luckily we were the only one's staying otherwise we would have been stuck for a parking space. Stairs are a bit steep to the first floor.

totally relaxing..just what we needed.

from the moment we arrived to the moment we left we couldn't have felt more welcome and looked after.our host recommended a place to eat which was superb food and very reasonably priced.The king size bed in our double en-suite was one of the best nights sleep i have ever had. our breakfast was superb, nothing was too much trouble..we would have no worries about recommending the hotel to anyone wanting a short break .

the cleanliness, attention to detail, the friendliness of the host, and the comfortable bed.
Dislikes?
the only fault we could raise is the fact that if you are a light sleeper it can get a little noisy on a saturday night with people walking past.

100% commitment from the owners to provide everything we needed

We had stayed in the Peak District "resorts" before and this time decided to stay outside and drive in on a daily basis. To our complete surprise we found Melbourne and the surrounding area had enough to maintain our interest for the three days so we didn't go into the Peak District on this visit. Plenty of interesting buildings in Melbourne itself plus places to visit in surrounding villages. and NO crowds. Read more

Description

Whether for business or leisure, a warm and friendly welcome awaits you at The Coach House, a popular AA 4 Star Guest House offering great value comfortable rooms, all with modern ensuite facilities. We have a number of ground floor rooms, free parking and free WiFi access. Enjoy a fabulous English breakfast plus cereals, fresh fruit & home made jams. Look out for our Weekend Discounts! The Coach House is just out from the centre of historic Melbourne, a village with pretty houses, friendly people, lots of pubs and good restaurants, a supermarket and a good range of shops (including a great shoe shop!), all just a short level walk away. Melbourne Hall (open in August only) and Gardens (open April to September) was home to Queen Victoria's first Prime Minister, Lord Melbourne, who gave his name to Melbourne in Australia. Browse round the Visitor Centre (open most days) where the Gift Shop and Estate Workshops provide a fine selection of unique gift ideas. Well worth a visit is the Parish Church, one of the finest in England and described as “a cathedral in miniature”, followed by a walk round Melbourne Pool (remember to feed the ducks!) and a visit to the Hall Tearooms. Thomas Cook was Melbourne born, and started his travel empire from here selling train excursion tickets. Melbourne is easy to get to, just 6 miles from the M1 and M42 motorways and with excellent access to Derby, Nottingham and Donington Park. Melbourne is at the southern tip of The Peak District and in the central region of The National Forest, and is surrounded by Historic Houses such as Chatsworth House and Hardwick Hall, Walking and Cycle Routes, great Shopping and fun family activities whatever the weather (ask us for a brochure with discount vouchers worth over £100). Nearby attractions include 3 stunning National Trust Estates (Calke Abbey, Kedleston Hall, and Sudbury Hall), Twycross Zoo, National Memorial Arboretum, Royal Crown Derby and Alton Towers.

Although The Coach House is not rated under the National Accessible Scheme, we have 2 ground floor bedrooms accessible without steps directly from the car park. The Breakfast Room is also on the ground floor and accessible without steps. If you can negotiate 1 step then you can access a third bedroom as well as the Guests' Lounge, all located on the ground floor.
