As they say you get what you pay for ! This is a less than expensive hotel , so don't expect 5 star service. It gives you great staff who will always go out of their way to make you happy . You will never get a better Value For Money hotel with a view to die for . DSP

We have been coming to this hotel every year since 2004 for our August holiday and we have never been disappointed. It is a family hotel run for and by a family. The view of Saundersfoot harbour and beach is superb. The outdoor swimming pool complete with sun lounging area is also a delight. The full breakfast or if you... More

The staff are brilliant and offer great service - thank you Pauline, Andrea, Russell and all! :) Reading some of the previous reviews of this... More

Just spent 8 nights at The Merlewood. Situated overlooking tbe village of Saundersfoot. Great choice at breakfast and at least a meat dish, fish dish and salad for evening meal. Friendly helpful staff, nothing is too much trouble. Nice pool which can be a bit fresh. Mind St Brides Hill gets steeper walking back up every year. Thanks to Pauline,... More

My wife & I spent a night at Merlewood Hotel at the end of May. I have no complaints at all. The price we paid was very reasonable, the room was of a good standard & the location is almost perfect. Saundersfoot is a short walk (5-10 mins). As Merlewood is on the top of a hill, you walk down... More

A clean and well-run hotel. Nothing too much trouble for some hard-working and very pleasant staff. Not posh at all - quite basic but not tatty and a nice place to be. The view from the bar area and pool are stunning!
