Talk about a game of two halves! This 34-bedroom boutique-style hotel is only a couple of years old, and was built to a high specification, with lots of gleaming marble, glass and water features. Our third-floor suite had a comfortable lounge area with small balcony looking out onto the hills behind the hotel. Both it and the spacious bedroom had a TV and fridge, while the bathroom was equipped with everything you could possibly need, from a superb walk-in power shower to a pair of weighing scales. Lighting was on an impressively efficient electronic system, the air-conditioning was efficient and the bed extremely comfortable. Towels were changed daily, and the housekeeping team kept the whole place impeccably clean. We didn't use the spa, but the rooftop swimming pool area, though small, was a very pleasant place to relax.

So far, so good...but I don't understand why an organisation which has paid so much attention to getting the actual hotel right could fail so miserably on the food it offers. We had a half-board deal, but after dinner the first night we refused to eat there. The soup was made from powder ( which hadn't dissolved), the pork was tough, chewy, and tasteless, and the vegetables had been boiled to oblivion.

We thought breakfast would be OK, but we were very wrong! There was a selection of pastries, with savoury mixed among the sweet versions, so it was pot luck what you got. The bacon was greasy, the sausages were so leathery they couldn't be cut, the fried eggs were stone cold, the scrambled eggs rubbery - and don't get me started on the hard-boiled eggs! When my husband cut into his he found the yolk to be a greeny-grey colour all the way through. Yuck! Because there was no cafe to go to nearby, we opted for bread and jam to be on the safe side...until one day there was no butter. The supervisor to whom I complained proudly gave me a dish with three packets of what turned out to be margarine the next morning, despite there being four of us. And when we asked for more, he provided two more packets, one of which had already been part-used! Still, I suppose we were lucky...there was no butter on the buffet for a whole two days (and they ran out of bread the following day!).

Another word of warning - there is a large outside seating area for the restaurant and bar. This is covered, but when it rains the whole place gets soaking wet, and we found ourselves sitting in puddles of water at a couple of meals. Also, the marble floor gets very slippery when wet.

Staff-wise, we found the reception team friendly, but the bar and restaurant staff were surly, monosyllabic and unhelpful.

Meljine itself is just a stretch of the main road about 2km outside Herceg Novi, and has no centre. The road is busy and I know some people have complained about the noise, but with our rooms at the back this wasn't a problem.

The promenade leading to Herceg Novi can be accessed just across the road, and is a 40-minute leisurely walk to the old town. There is a supermarket just across the road and a bus stop within yards of the hotel, but with taxis readily available at a cost of anything from 2-3.75 Euros (depending on the route taken), we never used them.

This made the price quoted by the hotel for a transfer from Dubrovnik Airport all the more surprising. They asked for 80 Euros each way for four of us, while we found a local company (Transfer-Novi) who provided the same service for exactly half that amount.

I rate the hotel very positively. We had a comfort room with a sea view on the 3rd floor with a cozy, sheltered balcony, where we spend evenings. The room and the entire hotel were very modern, all electronically controlled - including information whether the cleaning lady is to come or not. Air conditioning working fine, kettle and fridge in the room. Daily change of towels and thrown garbage. On the roof of the hotel on the fourth floor there was a pleasant, small pool with a view of the whole area. A big plus for non-plastic sunbeds and free use of towels. The meals were good, we had an full board option. Standard breakfasts. The choice of dishes for lunch and dinner may not have been wide, but every day there were two types of meat and one type of fish, so surely everyone could choose something for themselves. I read opinions about stomach revolutions - nothing like that happened to us! All the staff were very nice and helpful, especially the lady at the pool. They speak English very well, so there was no problem to comunicate. Generally, there is nothing to fault and the hotel deserves its 4 stars. The area is also ok, not on the first shoreline, but all you have to do is cross the street and get to the little port, and from there it's not far to the beach. To the center of Herceg Novi about 40 minutes walk. Next to the hotel there is a bus stop and a shop with affordable prices. I highly recommend this hotel :)

Wow what a beautiful hotel like a dream come true. Greeted with a warm friendly welcome at the airport by one of the staff and driven to the hotel. Rooms spotless and very comfortable with a lovely balcony. Bathroom had lovely big power shower, great start for the day. All staff very helpful friendly and efficient, could not do enough for you. Help and advice about the country to ensure your holiday was the best ever. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

Downsides
Great looking hotel, clean but have to say restaurant staff are miserable
Booked half board and food is not good at all
Stone cold eggs in morning.no toaster. Evening meal..well we haven't ate it as it's so poor in selection ..buffet style and not appealing at all
One of the waitresses has been fabulous up on the nice rooftop bar but today they sacked her ! She is the only one who has made an effort to make us feel welcome..
Good points
Great location outside of old town hercegnovi
Approx 30/40 minute walk to old town along the beachfront which is just over the road
Ideal to get bus up to kotor and back over to dubrovnik

Pleasant employees. Good looking building, but situated at main road, noise is sometimes very high! Well equipped rooms. Often problems with smart key card. Rush at small parking, I parked out my rent-a-car almost 10 minutes. Expensive SPA. Towels not changing at pool chairs. Manager/owner not in good mood, monitoring guests like a security guard while he drinks coffee in garden.
My advice is to skip this hotel, there are cheaper and pleasant hotels around.
