I stayed last weekend at The Melbourne Arms in Melbourne near Donnington Race Circuit. I was welcomed by the 76 year old owner Mr Kumar, a true Indian gentleman from the Punjab. He is a real character and his Indian restaurant is truly fab. Living in east London I am spoilt by 1st class Indian restaurants but most are run... More

Stopped at the Melbourne Arms for an overnight stay before a race day at the Donnington race circuit. This Indian Restaurant/Hotel is a great place for a short stay. Nice people, clean and friendly. The full English breakfast sets you up for the day.

Stayed here with my wife for 1 night, whilst attending a birthday dinner in. Melbourne. Although this looks like a pub - and sort of is one - it is mainly an Indian restaurant. There is a very large car park, which was pretty well deserted for the 24 hours of our stay. The manager was very welcoming and showed... More

After seeing some of the reviews on here, I was not expecting a great stay. But the room was reasonably clean, snug, but perfectly adequate for one. My only criticisms would be that the curtains could really do with being a lot thicker, and breakfast finishing before 8am is a little early. I will review the pub/restaurant separately.

An extremely disappointing venue. Was greeted by the owner, who was a nice old man. However, his staff are extremely miserable and unattentive. We were a large party who also had booked rooms. The rooms were dated, in need of modernisation, in need of a deep clean and the walls were paper thin and cold. As the main party in... More

Rooms, Indian restaurant and pub. More character than a Travelodge at similar money. I would recommend this hotel for those wanting a reasonably priced bed and good Indian food. English breakfast is good too. Probably not for those who prefer modern budget style hotels.

The staff is very friendly, helpful and caring at the B&B. However, when we arrived at about 2pm, the room wasn't ready yet. The member of staff offered us a drink while we wait. The room was quite spacious and rather clean. However, there was lots of noise at about midnight, when (I believe) members of staff were closing the... More
