Melbourne - Ardenlea Hotel
Ranked #45 of 51 Hotels in Shanklin
Reviewed 1 June 2009

I brought my Group of 42 to the Melbourne Ardenlea last week, and it was one of my best Group Holidaysin 15 years.. Hotel was clean, Food good, Entertainment on several nights, brilliant, and the atmosphere was friendly and tranquil. Idelal setting, and staff were friendly and efficient. No hesitation in visiting again.The Group was made to feel welcome, and nothing was too much trouble, 'not there to make up the numbers', as second rate holidaymakers.!.
Full marks to the owners and their families for working hard, and making this a nice place to stay!. Barbara Naylor & Friends. Oxford

Reviewed 27 April 2009

the staff were excellent, very helpful and polite and you could have a laugh with them. Bedroom was adequate and clean, only downfall was the television being a portable with bad reception, also only having one chair in the roon meant someone had to sit on the bed to try and watch the small tv.Breakfast was fine, however evening meals lack of choice, lack of imagination, and not very well executed. The hotel needs to have somemore entertainment like a darts board, pool table or games room, as there is nothing to do when it rains. Swimming pool very good, jacuzzi not working properly only one jet working. i would recommend the hotel to a friend as long as the above was carried out.
