Stayed with my husband for a break away from home and work on the Island and have to say the hotel was lovely. Adults only gives it a relaxed and quiet feel. The spa is fabulous. Had 2 fabulous treatments. A jug of Pimms by the pool. Afternoon tea which was superb. And a wonderful breakfast. We were kindly upgraded... More

Came across this little gem by chance... Fantastic staff and customer service. The food in the restaurant is to die for and the facilities surpass it's competition. Rooms are comfortable, well kitted and spacious with high ceilings, large en-suites and excellent showers. I didn't have chance to use the spa facilities but they looked amazing and all the guests were... More

A most welcoming prospect, the Melville Hall Hotel under blue skies. The welcome was also warm. Fabulous swims in the outdoor pool, comfortable room, lovely food and friendly staff. Great local walks and plenty to do on the Isle of Wight.

My fiancé and I are islanders but needed a relaxing get away. We had a bargain stay as it was out of season time. The staff were wonderful and could not do enough for us. The spa is small but don't let this put you off as it's wonderful we had treatments and had a four course meal and a... More

My husband booked a two night stay here in a four poster, superior room as a birthday surprise. Although the staff were all very pleasant and helpful, the hotel was very tired and old fashioned and our room was definitely not what I had expected from a 'superior' room at just under £150 a night. It was small and all... More

A friend and I had a lovely stay at this hotel. It is a little tired and in need of some refurbishment but the professionalism and friendliness of the staff more than makes up for it. All staff in both the hotel and spa were absolutely lovely and nothing was too much trouble. The spa treatments we both had were... More

We enjoyed our two night stay as part of an Amazon Local deal. The deal included dinner on one of the evenings and we can say without exception that it was one of the best meals we have had on this basis. The room, a superior on the ground floor was good but a little noisy from those alongside, above... More

The Melville Hall Hotel has the charm and elegance of a bygone era. The staff are professional, efficient and friendly -- from the reception, to the dining room, to the spa. My Mum and I had a lovely view of the garden from our 2nd-floor superior twin room. We were lucky enough to be there during a mini heatwave, so... More
