We have just got back from a two night stay. I can honestly say that our stay was faultless. I was greeted by Steve as soon as we pulled up. Within literally 5 minuites the kettle was on and Dawn was making us a lovely cuppa. We felt at home right from the start. The rooms were lovely and clean... More

I'm here at The Merginn, sat in my lovely warm room. I was greeted by Steve when I arrived, and like the last time, he made me a warm drink and we sat down and had a good long chat with himself and his lovely wife Dawn. This is the best budget accommodation that money can buy, it's cheap and... More

Fantastic little place! From the minute my son and I arrived to the minute we left, it was comfortable and homely. Nice and cosy for a "coldy" type of person and the breakfast was amazing which set us up for the day. Steve and Dawn could not be more friendly or accommodating, whilst being very down to earth and normal... More

This review is from a guest who was asked to leave our guest house due to foul and abusive language towards us and several other guests staying with us that weekend. We do not feel we need to respond other than to say that this is a "sour grapes" review. Please Note - we have a certificate of excellence issued... More

We had a 2-night stay and have to say that Steve and Dawn are very welcoming people. Lovely comfy bed (and pillows) and great breakfasts. Only thing was - we are not young anymore and were on the top floor so it was a hike to get up the stairs. Nevertheless, we managed (even though hubby has bad feet) and... More
