“An excellent time days spent at melville Hotel”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

Both my husband and I were very impressed with the hotel. The location was very good, five minutes walk to the beach and about three minutes walk to the park. The bed was very comfortable, and having dressing gowns and slippers in the room was a nice touch. I particularly enjoyed having a nice real cup of coffee in bed in the morning as the hotel provided ground coffee and a small cafetiere. The staff were very friendly, professional and helpful. The breakfast was very good, the service prompt and polite.
We had a memorable few days and want to thank all the staff for their hard work.

We spent a 2-night break and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Room, all staff, restaurant meals were excellent. I had a luxury pedicure which was great and the therapist was very attentive and made sure I was comfortable and enjoyed my treatment. We booked a 2nd evening meal which again was well worth the money. Can't wait to book again later in the year and may be stay for an extra night. Thank you Melville Hall Hotel.

Staff very friendly, room comfortable and quiet (107), restaurant food delicious. Swim pool and jacuzzis wonderful. Very close to beach and restaurants. A brilliant 3 days stay. Great value for money.

Room Tip: Superior rooms are definitely worth having.

Spent three days there 14-16th April and really enjoyed it. The rooms are well presented with tea and coffee making facilities and the hotel is always clean and tidy.The staff are very helpful, the food is excellent and the pool and spa area make it a worthwhile place to stay. The outdoor pool and hot tub are also excellent. The massage is as good as you'll get anywhere. We have visited now a number of times and will definitely be back.

This was a 2 day mini Spa break which, to be honest, we were expecting to be a tad cheap and cheerful, i.e. you get what you pay for, BUT we were pleasantly surprised, mainly because all of superb pool facilities and that the staff who, without exception went the extra mile, nothing was too much trouble.

The hotel was easy to find and situated in a quiet residential area. Parking was no problem and checking in was a breeze. Sandown sea front and Pier are a 5 minute walk away.

I have to be honest here and say the building and bedrooms although very clean and well stocked looked a little ‘tired’ and would benefit from a simple makeover like double glazed windows and more modern furniture. Having said that the room was, spacious, comfortable ,had a large LCD TV and had free WiFi, afacility a se many far more expensive British hotels charge outrageous amounts for money for!

The Spa and pool areas were 5 star, especially the outdoor and indoor Jacuzzis, wow. Also, the area around the outdoor pool was a sun trap and shield from the wind, so in early April we both found ourselves having to use suntan lotion!

Likewise The restaurant faultless, the food was expertly prepared to a very high standard and Alan our waiter was a master of his craft. The bar Manager come–wine waiter (David I think) was very old school and went the extra mile like suggesting a visitor real ale fan try a small sample of a guest ale and served liquors and Brandies in the correct glasses.

We couldn’t fault the Spa facilities either, they made us very special an welcome.

All in all a fabulous mini-break, many larger hotels could learn a thing or two from the Melville Hall!

We will be returning again, and again...

We had a lovely break,booked on an Amazon local voucher, the room was bright and clean, the spa was very relaxing you can use the leisure facilities as often as you like during your stay,the staff were helpful and friendly, afternoon tea is a must. The restaurant is pricey and the food was good although not sure it's worth £30 each if it hadn't been included in the offer we wouldn't have bothered.stunning walks along the cliff path.
