Historical Traveller Reviews of Melville Hall Hotel

A hidden treasure

from wahp
I visited the Melville Hotel and Spa for the first time this week but it certainly won't be the last. My trip started as soon as I entered reception as the staff were just so amazingly friendly. There was a very large bar and casual seating area which was really welcoming.

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.

Certainly recommended

Absolutley Fabulous

from Emma3051
For a short break we decided to go to the Isle of Wight, after searching the web and reading reviews on here we decided on the Melville Hall in Sandown, it descibes itself as a premier 3 star hotel - but believe you me, it's more like a 5 star!!

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 standard

from Muzzer320
When booking accomodation, one must remember that The Isle of Wight is a small, seaside island and does not have the more commercial hotels such as Hilton/Holiday Inn/etc as a benchmark.
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 down

from Junipers
If you have eyes for detail dont stay here. Stayed in room 111 - on face of it looked clean but looking closer carpet was not properly vacuumed and got worse during our 3 night stay - on arrival there were hairs on bathroom floor which we swept under the sink and they were still there when we left. The pillows were the worst of any hotel we have ever stayed in - flat and hard, cheap and nasty.
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 Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel is excellent value for money.We had a two day short break the price included B&B, five course dinner and a free ferry crossing.
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
Before going on our week-end break to the Isle of Wight we did some research and various websites listed Melville Hall as one of the the island's best 4 star hotels. However, we were very disappointed. The hotel's own website has some misleading photographs on it, which make the swimming pool appear far larger than it actually is. In reality, it is not much bigger than a large jacuzzi. The sauna was not even working! The superior room we had booked felt cramped, and was fairly dark. The walls were also very thin (to the extent that you could hear people in the next room having a conversation).

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 hotel

from MsTraveller
We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. We were very pleased with the food and the service was outstanding, very friendly and helpful. We checked into one room but had to move to another room as the walls were paper-thin so could hear our neighbours far more than we wanted! The receptionist moved us without questioning and we went into room 117 (next door to the nailbar so had no noise at all). The rooms were decorated to a modern standard with flat screen TV's and jacuzzi baths. We thought this was excellent value for money even though the room was a bit small - but who spends all their time in a room? We spent some time in the spa area enjoying the Infra Red cabin, sauna and spa pool, the swimming pool was slightly small so if you want exercise, you won't get it there. The 5 course dinner was very nice and they serve coffee and speciliaty teas in the lounge following your meal - very civilised and pleasing.

excellent welcome, but overpriced

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed here with a colleague while we were working on the Isle of Wight. I wouldn't do it again as the hotel is not really geared for business travel - it is extremely expensive for single travellers and breakfast, excellent as it is, was served rather late for us which meant we were rushing around afterwards.
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 all

from tobyboy
Stayed for 4 nights in September 26th -30th, in a four poster room. It was very clean, fresh towels and toiletries every day. The staff were extremely polite, friendly and helpful at all times. The service in the restaurant was good, Liked the idea of ordering evening meals in the lounge, whilst having a drink before dinner. the menu choice was good and food was very good. We used the pool and facilities, they were clean and warm. We had a 4night 4 the price of 3 offer, including ferry, which we found to be excellent value. The Hotel is well placed within walking distance of the beach etc, and all other areas of the island are within a short drive or on the local bus. Would certainly book this hotel again.

Great break

from warmnpeace
My wife and I spent an anniversary short break at the Melville Hall- a surprise present from our three children. The room was excellent as was the food and facilities. We particularly enjoyed the pool, jacuzzi and sauna in the leisure suite. This was our forth holiday on the island and by far our best- thanks to all the staff at Melville Hall. Ps. the Tropical Marine tank in the reception is worth a visit- we were mesmerised!

Top Local Tips for Sandown

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.
