Historical Traveller Reviews of Melville Hall Hotel
A hidden treasurefrom wahp
The rooms were well appointed and everywhere was spotlessly clean. There was a small indoor pool and jacuzzi in a wonderful conservatory style extension.
On site they have a spa offering a whole range of treatments and the staff were the friendliest that I have ever met. They were knowledgeable and helpful. A very personal service all round. They offer some great all inclusive packages.
I only tried lunch in the hotel but the menu looked wonderful.
Although this hotel isn't on the coast it is next to a large park so you can leave your car in the car park and stroll around at leisure.
Absolutley Fabulousfrom Emma3051
We were greeted by friendly but professional reception staff and shown around the facilities, then taken up to our room. We had paid a little extra for an upgrade with a Spa Bath and views over Brading downs it was well worth the extra money.
The indoor leisure suite was lovely, with indoor plunge pool, Sauna, Jacuzzi and Detox cabin, they even supply everyone with dressing gowns to wander down to the pool in. They also have an Heated outdoor swimming pool.
We chose the half board option with dinner each day, the evening menu was so tempting it was really hard to choose what to have, but we were'nt disappointed, the food was out of this world, Compliments to the Chef!! and the homemade desserts are amazing, the waiting staff were very good too. Breakfast is served between 8am and 10am so we even had chance of a lie in, which is very rare in some places.
They also have Utopia Spa situated in the hotel, the treatments were fantastic and so relaxing, but you do need to book in advance because they do get busy.
We really didn't want to go home, we will definatley be back and recommending the Melville Hall Hotel and Utopia Spa to everyone.
Melville Hall has it all? - It most certainly does - Keep up the good work.
Good standardfrom Muzzer320
With this in mind, we found Melville Hall to be a delightful example of accomodation on the Island. The hotel itself is quite large with parking and a secluded location, away from the main front although still within walking distance.
We paid extra for a superior room with a Spa bath. As promised, we were shown to room 109 which had all the facilites described. It wasn't the biggest hotel room I've ever been in but it was by no means cramped. The room itself was also very hot (partly due to the gorgeous weather!) but we found that turning the heated towel rail off solved this problem straight away!
The food was excellent with prompt service on all courses and friendly and courteous staff.
My only (very minor) irritations would be a slightly limited menu on evening meal, a lack of entertainment facilities for the evening (possibly due to the off-season) the fact that the fire escape was through our room and the rather small swimming pools.
Overall, If you are staying in Sandown I would throughly recommend this hotel and it's facilities.
Too many little things let it downfrom Junipers
Food - we were on a half board deal - evening meal selection lacked a decent choice and whilst it changed every day it seemed to be stuck in a 1970's time warp. Service was okay but not professional. Breakfast was of good quality but service on morning2 was terrible. People on table behind us had bad service the previous day. On our last morning it was okay again. Great sausages!. Given the huge choice of accomodation on the island would not bother going back.
The SPA - my partner had 2 treatments and she said they were excellent and good value for money
Excellent Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The rooms had recently been refurbished to a high standard,the staff was very friendly and could not do enough to help.The food was excellent. This Hotel is a three star and should be upgraded to a 4 or even 5 star.
Would not hesitate to visit again!
Very disappointing Hotel!from Xanthe
The english breakfast provided was of a poor quality and there was considerable building work going on the hotel, which we were not warned about when booking.
Overall, it is an overpriced hotel which makes many claims, that it does not live up to. The only positive thing to say about the place was that the bar staff were very friendly.
Friendly, clean hotelfrom MsTraveller
excellent welcome, but overpricedfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The initial welcome was excellent and the outdoor pool was nice. My bathroom was excellent too and newly done. However, I felt that for the price, the carpets in the communal areas could have done with a vaccuum. Also, my room had no air-conditioning and was extremely hot indeed. As the window backed on to a flatroof and exit stairs, I was reluctant to leave it open although I eventually had to.
Enjoyed it allfrom tobyboy
Great breakfrom warmnpeace

Best break If you want to have a realxing weekend with a great hotel, great staff and brilliant food, this is the hotel you want to go to!
Sandown is a good base for seeing the Isle-of-Wight Take the car and stay somewhere in the Sandown/Shanklin area and this will give you a good base to work from, the Island is quite small but there are dozens of different attractions all over it and they are no more than 30 minutes drive away from that base.
