I stayed for one night on business in June because the hotel was in a convenient location for me. The positives are my room didn't have traffic noise (although I could hear everything going on next door or in the corridor). The hotel also had nice views across to the east although my room faced the other way. The staff were friendly. The breakfast was standard. The room had a nice big TV.
On the downside, I hate blankets and would prefer a duvet (but I guess that's personal choice). The room wasn't the cleanest, especially the windows. The bed almost collapsed when I got in it (and I'm slim) and proceeded to creak all night. There were two bright lights outside my window (presumably to illuminate the hotel although I'm not sure why this is necessary) which made my room very bright even with the curtains closed. The room and corridor were both incredibly dated. The lock on my door was pretty much hanging off, making it hard to unlock the room.
The Melbreak will always have customers because it's in a handy spot but for £67 (I stayed in a twin room), I thought it was expensive for the quality. I previously stayed at the Cumberland Lodge nearby which was £62 and is infinitely better (although smaller). I wouldn't stay at the Melbreak again when there is somewhere cheaper and nicer nearby.
