We stayed at the Merton Hotel as a base while we explored some of the West of England. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating- and both the Restaurant and the Pub located right in the hotel served very good food with lots of menu options. The room was small but sufficed for the two of us, and was kept... More

Stayed at Merton hotel for 3 night on a business trip to Hereford. I have read most of the previous reviews before so I was prepared when I arrived at the hotel. Staff are all very attentive and professional, room was warm, breakfast was nice, comfy bed and clean linen. Even though the decoration and furniture are quite dated but... More

I am sorry to have to give this place a bad review as the staff are wonderful and the food very good. The accommodation is simply awful though. The hotel is damp, the bedroom furniture like something you'd find in a junk shop, the shower in the en suite (if you're lucky enough to have one) pathetic, the decor depressing,... More

This is a low budget poor quality hostel. My room had no shower only a small bath, a tiny 20" TV, dirty carpets and damp walls. I did ask for a room change but was told the hotel was full but when I sat in the breakfast room from 7.30am till 8.00am I was alone so the hotel must not... More

My wife and I stayed here in early September 2014 for one night; the hotel is easy to find and although parking initially appears problematic this is in fact not so since there is cheap all-day parking right opposite in the bus' station car park. The hotel is located on a busy city street just off the center. The lady... More

Very comfortable for the price. Friendly and extremely helpful staff - They were happy to help accommodate an extra person at very short notice. Top notch English breakfast included. Cosy bar. Walking distance from station. Great!

Incredibly helpful at the front desk and very accommodating in helping us with our bikes. Also very well organised. Rooms are a bit tired and could do with some updating but very clean. Try and sort out those squeaky floorboards! Close to city centre for restaurants etc.

Not a bad hotel, reasonably comfortable. In a good spot just a five minute walk from the railway station and almost opposite the main bus station so very handy if you are travelling by public transport. They advertise as having the best breakfast in town, not sure i would want to sample any others, however the hotel is sitiuated almost... More

I stayed at the Merton on the 4th of September with 2 mates. We came away for a night to send off one friend who was going back to Iraq on the Monday. A very friendly chap welcomed us at the reception, my room was very clean and everything was satisfactory, and the bar staff were very friendly and the... More
