"Great house and a great stay - just what we were looking for!"

For two nights in Brighton this was just what we were after. So much more flexible than a hotel - and so much more spacious! Everything we were after!… More

"A great home from home"

It's important to understand that this is very much Mel's home: clothes in the wardrobe, food in the fridge etc. This is not a neutral, empty holiday cottage. As long as you're happy wi… More

Thank you for a very thoughtful and fair review. Please note that we clear storage space for stays of more than 3 nights. This is our first year and we are listening to feedback and making improvements as we go (but keeping prices very reasonable!). You are right, this is not a house for people who like 'bland hotel standards.' We are creative people and our home reflects that.

"Brilliant stay would reccomenrd"

Had a lovely stay at this House with my friends. Everything you needed was available and the owners were so friendly.
It was clean, and although lived in, made it feel like home.

Thank you so much for your review. We're redecorating this season so it should be even better next year:)

"Wonderful house, great location-very homely and lovely."

We loved staying in this house. The rooms were nice; especially the attic room which is fantastic! There is a cute garden; which was wonderful in the summer sunshine. It's a short walk into town and the lanes, so it is perfectly situated for what we needed. Couldn't recommend it enough and Melanie, the owner, was really helpful and accommodating. Will definitely be returning!

Thank you so much, Helen. We were honoured to have you and the other dancers from Parlor Dance staying at Mel's House whilst performing at Brighton Festival. I'm so glad you got such lovely weather and enjoyed the garden and loft room. I'm so sorry I didn't get to see the show as it sounded amazing. Anybody who loves dance like me, check out Parlor Dance. Hope to see you at next year's Festival.

"Not what we were expecting........"

We were disappointed by this house. At even a very basic level, a holiday rental should be clean, particularly the kitchen, should have sufficient storage space for guests' belongings and should… More

As you can see from the other review, holiday houses are very much a matter of taste! I was upset and disappointed to receive this review as everybody else has appreciated the charm, light and space of Mel's house and enjoyed the homely feel. Please note that since this review we have changed our cleaner and redecorated and repaired the entire property.

"What a find! Amazing house, Amazing Owners!"

This house is fantastic, the pictures do not do it justice! The house is spacious, warm and beautiful which has more than enough space for 10 of us to sleep comfortably. The brilliant quirky features … More

Thank you so much for your review. You were lovely guests and it was a pleasure to have you staying in Mel's house for a 30th birthday party. As I mentioned, it brought back happy memories of my husband's 30th which we spent at a house down the road! We hope you will come back soon, Mel and Craig.
