I have stayed at the Melia several times over the past two years, but felt that on my most recent visit they had become complacent and standards were lower.
Positives: a great location within easy walking distance of Euston, Oxford Street etc; welcoming reception staff; cooked to order omelettes at breakfast
Negatives: I was put in a twin room with an extremely small bathroom, chipped bath, inadequate lighting in the bathroom, and a flickering over-bed light. One of the key cards didn't work. At breakfast I asked for tea and a mug containing two tea bags was eventually plonked on the table after I asked again - there didn't seem to be enough staff on duty and although I tried to get the attention of one of them for another (weaker) drink I was unable to do so. Very disappointing.
