Melville Hotel

Reviewed July 28, 2013

Staff very helpful & pleasant. Room very small & desperately needed an update.
Dining room in the basement. As part of a tour group we were crammed into a section of the dining room, all the rest was empty. The food was very good & well cooked.
Good sized bar & seating area with regular entertainment, also seperate lounge area.
Ideal position for exploration, as right by Tower & Winter gardens, but not good for staying in hotel during the day.

the staff were lovely and so helpful
this was our first visit to Blackpool and the hotel was great putting us up at the last minute
Darren on the front desk could not do enough to help us and make our stay great the twin room with the big bay window was just what we wanted
the cook was also great breakfast was most enjoyable served by very helpful staff member Sean

Just got back on sunday evening from going with national holidays coach company, went on Saturday upon arrival given our menus to choose from , with it being about 2,30pm (ish) just we arriving decided not to have the evening meal which is was included as we were in a package through national holidays as they said to be there 5.30pm, we were only in Blackpool for what was the remainder of Saturday and on sunday , 3.00pm bk on coach so decided to eat out to save on time goin back an forth, the menu didn't look to appealing anyway for us that is! Got given our what I thought was OUR room keys , had a shcok horror moment going up to the room putting key in door and going the room I had to look twice! You ask why well, beds not maid etc I thought ah maids haven't been in, then I see peoples belongins suitcases etc I was stunned and obviously abit tired from the journey it tok is a second or 2 to realise what is going on! So went down stairs explained got checked up on system an I was given a key for someone rooms that was already occupied which you know 1st impressions ???? got given right kep but was nt so fast to get in room this time frightened incase the same but wasn't thankgod, I did get apology's etc but thers the what if's though! What if people were in there room what would they think and visa versa and how would they react towards me as if that had happened to me I would be crazy specially your belongings etc are there ,I could have been any 1 and could av took any thing but thank god am not that kind of person, if this could happen to them or me it can easily happen to any 1 (maybe) whether the people of that room new or was informed I will never no! Shouldn't have happened end of , putting people in an awkard most unfortable moment just lucky ther's none of the what if's that happened! Once in our original room had a double bed and a single bed even though on booking there was only one double bed left which we booked hmm? beds really comfortable ours were cant speak for beds in other rooms as never slept in them, had a kettle, with tea, milk, coffie an sugar etc there is a note stating if you like more than is available for a small charge!small lcd tv all channels working an remote, had very tiny window but didn't bother us just thought I mention it for some reason, room very clean had a lamp plenty of wardrobe space a drawer set an a mirror in bedroom as well as bathroom . now the bathroom had a shower , plenty of hot running water, spacious and towels provided! Walls cant tell if they are actually thin or people been over loud all hours ! People in 1 room nxt to us 3.00am carrying on, laughing, joking, which am up for any1 havin a good time but the expense of others an no consideration! Yes every 1 is on there trip, break or holiday or what eva u call it and wants to enjoy there time in their own way but at the same time other people are there too wanting there thing so a little consideration concerning running round corridors etc wudnt go a miss!6.00am banging etc well yes it is Blackpool and it is the end of the mth and the weekend but to me theres no excuse these are people not the actual hotel! There is bar didn't bother with, breakfast ok had English breakfast made to order which I was asked by waitress who was really friendly and I like this compare to buffet style places for breakfast buffets as it then feels less like feeding time at the zoo! Like one viewer said before I agree its a place to get your head down this is my opinon for me if I was to ever come back to this hotel other people might feel different but can only speak for what was my experience and every 1 else will or have experience different experinces at this hotel!

We have just returned from a two day National Holiday break. The Melville was central for attractions and night life, but room was tiny, booked a double - bed was a 3/4!! The shelf was hanging off from behind the bed, the blinds didn't close properly, the lead wasn't long enough to plug the kettle in you had to put it on the floor. The bathroom need a good overall, someone had had a lovely time with filler, but not a good job!! We were given the menu on arrival for choices for the evening meal, just did not appeal, reminded us of hospital food choices. We went out and found a lovely Greek restaurant. Breakfast was okay. For a one night stay, someone to put your head down for a few hours sleep, but would not stay longer.

We have been to the melville me and my partner for a short break. We had such a great time that we are going back again 4weeks later. The staff was lovely and the food was great. The entertainment was reallu good and wasnt to expensive for drinks.

Room Tip: All the rooms were great and there is a lift to all floors.
