Melville Hotel

It was the first time I stayed at this hotel and it will be the last.

The room were unclean, the bedding full of hair. On making payment I received no invoice to allow me to claim the cost of the stay back and after a number of chases received no response. One of the worst hotel stays I've had.

Awful

It's shocking what hotels in central London can charge.

The main issue (for those who don't want to read my entire rant) was the heat. No radiator on and the window open all night, and according to the temp on my alarm clock, still 25 degrees in the morning. It had got to 26.5 the evening before, even (separately) trying the a/c unit on the highest setting available (the knob for the max setting being broken) and having the window open despite the outside noise. And this was a cold night, down in single digits. Having read reviews about the small single rooms being very small, I opted for the small double. It can't have been any bigger than the single, with a bed that I doubt was full double size jammed up the window and radiator, and just about enough room to get round the end. 2 people in the room would have been a nightmare. No sign of the advertised music system, and the TV was unwatchable because of the size of the room and how high up on the wall it was fixed. The room may have recently been refurbished, but not to a good standard, eg screws sticking out of wall paneling. The bathroom already had mould round the shower tray, the wall unit with mirror skewiff and unusable cos it was fixed so high (I'm short, but not that short, and could only see the top of my head!), and the mug and loo roll holders both hanging off the wall. Because of the heat, I really wanted a cool shower in the morning, but no, the shower head was broken so wouldn't stay on the holder and the temperature gauge not working. 2 options: water so hot I couldn't stand under it, or a bit hotter. Then there was the lighting: no side or reading lights, so the option was off or full blaze spotlights that hit the eyes wherever you sat on the bed. And the "desk" was nothing more than a foot deep bit of formica jammed against a unit, so also unusable for doing any work. Note that the Excelsior and (I think) Albion hotels also on Argyle Square are run by the same group so I doubt they'd be any better. The location is good but I can't see any reason for anyone to stay here.
