little gem!

Posted Mar 7, 2017
Pros: clean / well equipped room / good location / great staff
Cons: more sunbeds/chairs in garden
Location: 3 min walk to beach - bars/restaurants in St Lawrence gap all very closeby - bus stop 5 mins away
very nice hotel .... clean and well equipped room with nice patio/balcony - great location for everything in the gap but quiet at night time ...... bus stops are nearby (5 minute walk) staff are very friendly and helpful and always around if assistance needed excellent value! ...... I would not hesitate to return thankyou Melbourne Inn

only thing missing

Posted Feb 24, 2017
Only thing missing is a pool then this hotel would be perfect and the newly added security access gives piece of mind so no intruders

Pros: cheap clean safe quiet agree with all the posts about the helpful staff
great location one block from the most expensive resorts whose beaches are public anyhow enjoyed both the European/Caribbean ambiance on the streets AND the resort facilities when we wanted probably best location for both tourism and night life on the island at St Lawrence Gap beautiful beach at Dover and easy to bus and taxi to all the other main tourist sites great food music etc within one block morning till night not for all inclusive resort types but completely safe clean friendly comfortable quiet place EXCELLENT VALUE great staff set us up with transportation and tours when car and tours cancelled due to delayed flight, etc Used the kitchen and also had variety of meals out from posh to shack snacks, bars to lounges on beach

Great hotel for the price!!

Posted Feb 14, 2017
Took me a while too first find the hotel, but once I did I was greeted very nice and friendly. She checked me in showed me too my room and even showed me how too use the ac unit. I was their for 3 nights and sure it's not a Hilton but has the same stuff has a microwave, a refrigerator, tv with enough cable channels, private bathroom , and nice size bed. I really did enjoy my stay their it was great and like I said all the staff was nice if I needed anything I knew I could ask them. I thank them and when I go back too Barbados I will stay their. Something I also found out is they have rental cars so even better for people that looking for a car!!

No breakfast though advertised

Posted Feb 10, 2017
We arrived 2 hours early and checked in and left our luggage to start exploring the area. We returned and the room had 1 king bed instead of 2 double beds. After about 45 minutes or an hour, they found us a room with the double beds. They did nothing about the fact that their website offers breakfast and they saw it for themselves. The room was fine but it felt like we were an inconvenience to the the staff.

Very very close to the beach! Great area

Posted Feb 2, 2017
You'll be close to everything here. Ocean 15 next door has great coffee, the store is right there. Bring a full wallet tho, everything's VERY expensive. I'd also consider bringing an extra blanket if you use the air conditioner because they only offer a basic sheet and no comforter. There's plenty of room and everything is basic. The kitchen has basic basic utensils and pans. I honestly could have gone without it. Cooking is pointless as you really won't save any money whatsoever so just go eat out! I'd stay there again. The price was right and the location was good as well. The taxi trip from the airport should be no more than 40-50 Bajan or 20-25 US. Bring lots of US because you get more for your money and the ATM's charge about 5-6 dollars per transaction. Overall, bring lots of $$$. Our car rental was 50 a day but we found a local and rented their extra car, otherwise it's about 75-100 US dollars a day.

Nice Hotel with amazing staff.

Posted Jan 30, 2017
Pros: close to the beach close to restaurants AMAZING staff
Cons: more things in the kitchen (ustensils, pans,...)
Location: beach, restaurants, bars,
We stayed 8 days at The Melbourne Inn and we had a wonderfull stay. The hotel is close to the beach and restaurants are 5 min away. short walk to the highway to take a bus or a taxi. The hotel was really quiet and the staff is AMAZING. They ALL are really friendly and helpfull. Everything was really clean. Located in a very quiet area. The only thing is that they can add a little bit more of kitchen things (pans, ustensils,...). We recommend this hotel.
