We recently stayed here & were welcomed really well & we were excited for our stay but on arrival at our room we were welcomed by beds that you could pick up from a market for £20 with the hardest mattresses I've ever been on, the pillows were flat and worn in & the breakfast wasn't overly great, would not...

Kieran, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. You are the first to complain about the beds here in 11 years. Beds are really important to our guests and all are for commercial use except in the family rooms where we use put me up beds which are designed for children. It is difficult to please... More

I can not not begin to explain how grateful we are to sally and all the team and the Melbourne View Hotel. We had our wedding here on the 14th November this year and I can honestly say it was the best day of our lives. From the planning of the wedding to the day itself sally was fantastic in... More

Thank you for leaving us a lovely review. Not even the awful weather could dampen anyone's spirits! The day was well planned and everyone came with the intention of having a great time and they did. Enjoy your honeymoon! More

I have stayed at Melbourne View Hotel a number of times over the last few years, and I have always been very impressed by the quality of the food, the comfort of the rooms and the excellent service. It strives to provide everything that a small hotel should, combined with a warm welcome and excellent service. Highly recommended.

We booked the Melbourne View Hotel for our wedding on 26th September 2015. Sally who owns the hotel has got in my opinion a hidden gem here. We were blessed with great weather which made for some great photos with great views over to Breedon on the Hill Church. The hotel is a great location for a wedding. Lovely grounds,... More

Breakfast meal was good, shame no cloths on tables made it a bit like a canteen ,,,, prefer a pot of tea on table rather than have to keep getting up to make a... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. The disappointing part of your review is the feeling that my staff didn't smile. All wear name badges and I would be happy to talk to those you felt weren't happy in their work. The rest of the review is personal taste although If you had asked we would... More

Like most reviewers I was here for a wedding but I'll focus on the hotel (rather than wedding) experience. The hotel is located in open country (hence the name) outside Melbourne and close to East Midlands Airport. If you're a light sleeper you'll probably want some ear plugs to ensure that the early flights don't wake you. It's a period... More

We got married at Melbourne View Hotel on 11 July 2015. It was the best day of my life and Sally and her staff played a big part in making that happen. Sally sold the venue to us from day one. She was really helpful and we could do everything we wanted on our wedding day. Nothing was a standard... More

My daughter held her wedding here a couple of weeks ago, everything was absolutely perfect, Sally was always around and she made our weekend very special, we felt like family and cannot fault anything. Resident DJ is highly recommended too, the dance floor was never empty. I would thoroughly recommend the Melbourne View Hotel.

Held my wedding here last weekend and it was prefect, Sally was so helpful from start to finish and made sure that she understood what we wanted from the venue to make it right for our big day.
