We liked everything about our stay and will be returning very soon.Wendy is a lovely lady.would recommend to everyone. Xxx
Proximity to harbour and town, quiet and peaceful, homely, very attentive owner, very clean and nicely decorated, excellent breakfast, wi-fi worked well
Shower door didn't close properly so leaked a little, otherwise, nothing at all
Wendy was very friendly & helpful. Nothing was too much trouble
Wendy was very friendly, fantastic breakfast spoiled for choice and had a very good night sleep. The house had great decor and would definitely come again.
Location Décor of the bedroom and of the whole house Owner/host's welcome and attention to details Quietness NO KIDS Very comfortable bed and luxurious bed linen Owner/host excellent knowledge of places to see and things to do (as well as avoid)
Location Service Surrounding amenities Good food Always helpful Great area to explore
Could benefit from an en suite bath to soak away the daily pains of walking and travel
We had a great time staying at Merlewood House. After a nightmare journey on the trains to get there - Wendy went out of her way to give us a lift from the station and kept in touch with us via mobile during the journey. Merlewood House is situated in a great location - near the port and beach with everywhere within easy walking distance - yet off the main road so you get a good nights sleep. Breakfast was an excellent spread and a great host. The room was decorated very nice and spotless. We would definitely return to stay again.
1) Wendy, the owner, is a delight, with a marvelous sense of service and 'Family' which instantly makes one feel welcome and ready to settle-in. 2) Great Breakfasts included, from Cereal & Toast to the full English Breakfast. 3) Lovely comfy Queen-size bed 4) Great parking ....at the door!!!
1) The stairs....but then I knew they were there when I booked!!! :) 2) I struggle to get used to the very low-pressure/low-volume showers, but this is far from unique to Merlewood House.
Really nice location and host.......would definitely recommend
Wendy the landlady is very hospitable, flexible and accommodating, gave us plenty of advice on the area and what to do. This is like a luxury B&B! Very comfortable with all mod cons, and the beauty treatments were excellent. And the listed building is charming! The location is good, quiet but only 5 min walk from the sea front. its up a hill but manageable for most people. I even got gluten free pancakes! Highly recommended.
TV a bit small
Close proximity to beach, harbour and shops Excellent breakfast Quality decoration and furnishings
Loved the atmosphere and especially the owner (Wendy) who seemed to want us to have an enjoyable visit. A very comfortable B&B.
