“Very Pleasant Break”
Reviewed 1 March 2013

My partner & I went for a two day break following afamily wedding. The room was comfortable & clean.The staff were excellent - very helpful & a special mention must be made of the restaurant staff who were polite & attentive. The wine waiter could not have been more helpful. The food was very good & I would definately recommend the hotel for anyone wanting a pleasant trouble free break

Just returned from a 2 day spa break here arranged with Travel 24. The staff are really helpful, friendly and attentive. The spa is small but adequate. The decor is very dated. However as this was a special offer, it was good value for money. I would not pay full price for this hotel unless it received a thorough clean and decorative upgrade. If you are garlic fan don't miss a trip to the garlic farm where there is a fantastic, mouth-watering array of delicious, garlic related products - but be mindful of leaving a bagful in the car overnight as the smell will stay with you!

We arrived to the isle of wight for the 1st time on the 27th feb 13 with high expectations for the melville hall spa hotel however it was a disaster!! we stepped into our room to find dust everywhere, hair in the bath, outdated tv and furniture, unclean utilities and carpets not even hoovered. we complained to management in which they cleaned the bath for 1 minute and wasnt even done properly so complained again!! we then were taken to the sitting area and had to wait a while to be seen. They said nothing could be done so therfore we asked for a full refund, which was given. It was a terrible experience and staff were grumpy, all but 1 which welcomed us on arrival. Deffinately wouldnt stay here, so dirty and run-down, couldnt even stay 1 night.

We had a 2-day spa-break in a cold February when being outside was unpleasant. But the staff and atmosphere made up for that. Enjoyed the pool, sauna, etc. Good menu, good food, attentive service - and absolutely great value!

We really enjoyed our two night stay here. It was a good standard 3 star hotel. It's clean and comfortable, but what made it worth 5 stars is the pleasant service from every member of staff.
The spa is old and small, but if you want an modern and flash spa, you need to pay more money and book a 4 of 5 star place.
Food was excellent, had enough choice and also good value.
It's not on the sea front, but it is an easy walk there. I would stay again.

We stayed here on a 2 night break bed breakfast and evening meal. The hotel was easy to find and ample car parking. We had a four poster room which wasn't the best four poster I have ever stayed in but was clean and tidy and good value for the price we paid. We had a very relaxing time and made full use of the spa facilities including a head massage which we both thoroughly enjoyed. The food was superb way above the three star standard of the hotel. The staff were helpful and friendly and we really enjoyed our stay. One thing to look out for is the fish tank in the lounge i spent half an hour watching the fish and creatures in the tank it is really amazing and good enough to rival any sea life aquarium.
