The hotel is centrally located and close to the Winter Gardens and Tower. In a few words, the hotel is reasonable value for money on the deal we had. Blackpool really needs to get it's act together as it has gone downhill since I was last here. Parking is expensive and made a cheap holiday hardly so but worse was the condition of the piers which needed repair and quickly. Why was it necessary to have some awful musak blasting out on the piers? It was awful and deafening and totally unnecessary. Breakfast and dinner in the hotel suffered equally with imposed noise from some radio station. So, the hotel.

Service great. Friendly and informed and caring staff. No problems there. The room? Small for a double but adequate and to be expected I suppose. Bed comfortable. Sleep fine. Niggles? Only given one hand towel for two and half a roll of lavatory paper. No spare.

Breakfast was acceptable.Fruit juice and cereal and a cooked English breakfast. Strange sausage. Dinner [included] was choice of two starter, mains and pudding plus coffee. Nothing 5 star here but great service and a pleasant meal in a nice dining room [apart from the noise].

In summary this a hotel that is trying hard; they own another close by and they deserve to succeed. Just drop that awful racket in the dining room. We want to talk not have a headache

Hello, we stayed at this Hotel from Monday 7th to Wenesday 9th April 2014.
Never been to Blackpool before, we were very happy to stay at this very well placed Hotel and will be happy to stay again, a bit dated but refurbishment underway, having said that it was clean, warm, comfortable and welcoming.
The breakfasts were excellent, cereials, juice and full English + toast, the food was good quality as was the tea and coffee everything hot and served with a smile, all you need in a Hotel.
Very attentive staff, treated all clients as important and equal.
So, if you are visiting Blackpool we recommend this Hotel, we parked the car on arrival and did not use it again until departure, the town is so close you do not need to drive! 5 minutes to the sea front, Blackpool Tower, The Winter Gardens, shops, restaurants, cafes etc.
We are well travelled but we have not found better staff anywhere, nothing is too much trouble all done with a smile, Spoil yourselves - stay at The Melville.
We have no connection to this Hotel other than very satisfied guests!

Room Tip: If you have a problem (unlikely) the staff will do all they can to resolve it quickly without any fu...

Family group of 12 went on a KGB deal overnight B B & evening meal £59 for two people - bargain. Two of the couples had a toddler with them which they did not charge any extra for and they also got dinner and breakfast too. The staff were fantastic and really friendly, made us very welcome, nothing was too much trouble and after reading other reviews can't believe people put nasty things on here. The hotel bedrooms could probably do with a bit of a refurb but were clean and tidy with tea coffee facilities. The bar was fab -we had it all to ourselves. Evening meal was nice enough too for the price how could anyone complain. All in all an enjoyable stay - you do get what you pay for so if you want 5 star be prepared to pay the price.

Room Tip: Ask them for the best room they gave us nicer ones

Had a good weekend at the Melville couple of problems soon sorted out.Breakfast was very good and filling, just had dinner one night again very nice. Wee Jimmy and rest of staff very helpful.Our room was on the small side but ok,apart from very noisy floorboards when moving about,even from adjoining room.My mother in law was in a twin room above the bar very noisy but again perfect for her needs ,overall not the Ritz but fine for a weekend.
