Beat the summer heat by relaxing at the swimming pool before wandering over to the poolside bar for a cool cocktail. If you fancy a night in, then pick a Hollywood Blockbuster and experience a night of audio and visual entertainment in the Sound Room.

The room has a warm ambience and is equipped with plush couches and a large TV screen with theatre sound system. The Tented Garden is a great spot to just sit back and relax with a great book - just be careful not to fall asleep as you lie back against the throw cushions and large comfy mattress.

Traveller Reviews

  • Melrose Arch was clearly our favorite; we could walk to restaurants and shops. Very lively and gave us a flavor of the city. Our boys loved the rooms and the hotel.

  • Amazing decor, great service, wonderful location. The hotel restaurant, March, was great and breakfast was awesome (either off the hot menu or the buffet). It was a really cool and trendy hotel and we loved it!!
