....perfect location in the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon close to the RSC theatre, River Avon and shops
The Melita was built in 1888 and is one of the larger Victorian buildings in Stratford-upon-Avon. Originally the house was owned by Mr George Boyden who was the proprietor of The Stratford Herald Newspaper. Marie Correlli, the novelist, and local socialite visited George, and described it as a 'happy home'.
The property became a bed and breakfast in 1935 and has been welcoming theatre goers and visitors to Stratford ever since. The old name for Malta was Melita and the property was given this name by an earlier proprietor who loved the island.
Although much has changed since those early days The Melita remains a very happy and homely place to stay, providing guests with all the modern conveniences and comforts that todays visitor has come to expect. During the ongoing refurbishment of the property every effort has been made to ensure we preserve the integrity of the Victorian building. Our intention is to create a truly English environment. Using traditional decor, antiques and furnishings in the public areas we have tried to give our guests 'a little bit of England' not to be found in many larger hotels.
We endeavour to provide visitors with a happy place to stay, without compromising service.
The Melita B&B has for several years enjoyed 4 star Guest Accommodation rating with the English Tourist Board, and has a Gold Award for food hygiene.
N.B Melita B&B is a totally non-smoking establishment.
