Room not very clean, bathroom very poor toilet seat broken, tiles on floor broken, shower tiny but the worse part was the smell, the over powering smell of sewerage. Breakfast is pathetic. Staff not remotely interested in guests

The hotel isn't right in the city centre but it isn't too difficult to get right into the centre where the nightlife and attractions are. We got s cab which cost around £9 in the evenings. I've seen comments on here about the staff being rude but that wasn't my experience. Room was basic. But, I usually go on cheap... More

Guys, don't get fooled by booking a room with them. I could not stay there. Smelly room, intimidating and rude staff. We were not allowed to see the room before we paid. We booked a double room and were presented with a 5-6 beds room, stinking of cigarretes and vomit.

On arrival, the lady member of staff was horribly unfriendly 'you pay upfront, it's not a 24 hour service, breakfast is continental between 8-9.30'. No smiles. No customer service. You are made to feel like a burden to them. The so called continental breakfast- very very basic- tesco basics... not worth the money.. cold staff who do not even make... More

I stayed on a week night and this is the noisiest place I've ever had to try and get a night's sleep. Doors banging and loud thumps went on all night until about 6 am, which seemed to come from various rooms and corridors. Not sure I even felt safe.

Overall, I was very disappointed with my stay at the Merith House Hotel. The staff seemed friendly enough, but the room itself was very dirty, the bed was quite uncomfortable, the lock on my door did not work for the first night, and the location was quite a distance from the center of town. Perhaps the worst part of my... More

First room we stayed in the bed was so worn i felt the box spring underneath, we were then told the beds were all replaced recently in January. I have no idea what with as it was passed it. We were moved onto another room which had exposed electrical wiring hidden behind a table where the lamp wasn't even plugged... More

The hotel is in a pleasant location with plenty of buses to and from the city centre and the airport. The nearest pub, on the corner, is great - comfortable and friendly with a good vibe, and there is an ok - ish Indian next to it. The hotel rooms are small but fine for a short stay. The breakfast...

Booked the 5 bed family ensuite room for a lads weekend watching the rugby. The room was clean, warm, quiet and the beds very comfortable. No complaints from any of us. The location was ideal, bus stop outside the front door takes you to Princess St in 10 mins. Bus runs every 20 mins so no need to get a... More
