Fantastic hotel
Fantastic 5 star experience. Great location, great room, comfy bed, lovely bathroom. Only complaint, very noisy early in the morning. Very loud plumbing noises. Water running, toilets flushing etc. Could be better sound proofed?

Everyone should have a Merrion experience
The only word needed to describe The Merrion is simply “faultless”

The Merrion
A class act
We stayed overnight here - staying in town for a special birthday dinner in the Greenhouse. The Merrion is absolutely peerless when it comes to stylish hospitality and attention to detail. I am so proud that our city has a hotel of this quality and refinement. A great testament to owner’s’ vision and the care taken by management and staff to maintain standards.

Beautiful hotel!
We LOVED this hotel! Location, staff, room, view, afternoon tea, literally everything was wonderful! Comfortable bed and pillows. Everyone from the doorman to the maids, spa staff, bell boys, wait staff and bar staff were incredibly warm and friendly. Better than a 10 y’all! Do not this hotel! We stayed in a premium garden king room. Lovely! Cloth bar napkins in the tea room lobby😍 Beautiful harp playing in tea room.
