This is our 6th visit to the Saundersfoot / Tenby area, and there is something about the area that draws us back time and time again. We found the Merlewood via on-line searches, and knowing the area well, the location and views attracted us immediately. The hotel is a 5 minute walk into Saundersfoot where there is a good choice...

Just back after 15 nights at The Merlewood. We stayed half board. Excellent choice at breakfast and at least 3 choices of a main course in the evening, or you can eat in the bar. Pool and fantastic view over Saundersfoot. 5 min walk to village, but it is a steep hill coming back up Lol. Beautiful beaches and great... More

Breakfast has a good choice with continental and full english options which keep you going for the day. There are also bar meals and evening meals available which offer a... More

In the area for a family birthday and found availability here for a room with sea view. Room was clean and bathroom modern and view was fab. Great location for wandering into town and along the coastline. Weather nice enough on the Sunday for a swim in the pool and soaking up the sun on the terrace. Loved our stay.

You should not stay here if you want The Ritz. If you are used to glam, glitz, etc this isn't the hotel for you. However, if you want a lovely clean, comfortable hotel in a fantastic location, decent food, and amazingly friendly and helpful staff, you should stay right here. We didn't get there until 1030pm but Russell on reception... More
