  • 4.0.Fair

    We were given a bigger room with own loo which was a bonus. The staff/owners very friendly but the place itself is minging. I could list 100’s of negative things but I won’t. You pay for what you get

    Never again!!!!!!

    Please take me off your system! If that is the type of hotels you offer I will never use your service again!! Without wasting my time writing about awful the Merlin was just send someone to look under the bedroom furniture, it probably hasn’t been cleaned in a decade! We all left feeling riffy and disgusting!!
