“Overnight Stay”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

My wife and I went to the Art & Craft weekend festival in Melbourne and enjoyed the Saturday so much we decided to stay for the Sunday. A short trip round proved fruitless but a phonecall to the Melbourne View got a result ! The owner couldn't have been more helpful and put us in a room with a walk-in shower because my wife has mobility problems. She also said she could do an evening meal for us so we went straight there.
The room was excellent - very clean and comfortable - and the evening meal was superb. Everything was home made, cooked fresh and delicious. The breakfast was just as good.
We'll certainly stay there again !

Our Daughter's wedding was recently held at the Melbourne View Hotel, and it was a lovely day. Sally was willing to do whatever was needed to make it a special day for our daughter and new son-in-law, and the whole day lived up to our expectations. The venue was clean and bright and the outside gardens and views were wonderful. There was plenty of car parking and space outside for people to mingle. We would certainly recommend it as a wedding venue and one where you get that personal touch from Sally and her team rather than an "off the shelf" package from one of the larger hotels. We had the whole hotel to ourselves, which made it even more special.

What a beautiful place Melbourne View is, it has the perfect setting for a wedding and sally is amazing. She went out her way to make sure the day went perfectly, her staff were also very helpful and polite. We were unsure of the evening buffet but came up with a brilliant idea of a large cheese board with different bread crackers and a lovley selection of cheese, fruit, chutneys and the tastiest freshley carved ham. Lovely clean rooms and breakfast for the wedding party was excellent. Again Thankyou so much Sally xx

I have just returned from a wedding held at the Melbourne view, what a fantastic day !!

The venue was excellent , the staff were helpful and courteous , the food was delicious , in fact you could not fault any elements of the day .

I did not stay the Melbourne View as I had friends who lived nearby, but I did join the wedding party for breakfast this morning, this was first rate , tasty , hot and excellent value .

I highly recommend this venue and wish the staff and management every success for the future

My newphew's wedding was a fantastic day yesterday thanks to the hard work of Sally and her staff and the beautiful location of Melbourne View Hotel. From the ceremony itself, the beautiful outside space for the photographs, the banqueting space, the mouth-watering food not the mention the most helpful staff I've ever come across. The whole day was made a day to remember. Nothing was too much trouble and it was obvious that Sally has done lots of events of this type. Steve from Spot Lights mobile disco set the mood and got everyone on the dance floor. And going back this morning and chatting with Sally about the couples special day and having a tasty full English breakfast with unlimited refreshments and toast with the happy couple was the best £5 ever spent. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Attended a friends wedding here. Melbourne View is in a nice countryside setting but it is very noisy as it is near the airport and planes are going over every few minutes. Food was not very nice – supposed to be home made but this was definitely cheap frozen stuff they served. A real let down. Some friends were staying over and let us use their room to freshen up. Room looked like it needed a good clean, cobwebs and dust are not a sign of good housekeeping. Glad we had not booked a room. Seen some of the reviews on here and can’t believe this is the same place, definitely overrated and would not recommend for food, accommodation or as a venue.

Thanks for your review. Most of the issues raised have already been dealt with on your previous reviews (which have been taken down for violating the rules of Tripadvisor: IE having multiple accounts and commenting on the rooms when you didn't actually stay in them).

From our perspective this seems very late in the day to still be commenting on an event that happened months ago. You are entitled to your review BUT we have felt all along that others factors are motivating you and your friends reviews. Fortunately for us we have a successful and thriving business and your views clearly fall in the minority.

Having attended a wedding reception and stayed the night I can tell you that this is a gem of an establishment. As well as comfortable surroundings set in picturesque countryside, good food and a well-stocked bar, the staff here are one of Melbourne View's primary assets. All are genuinely friendly and helpful which really adds to the experience. Would definitely go again. (Also there is a Tesco Extra a ten minute drive away for when you forget to bring your suit, shirt and tie. Very handy.)
