Really sad to see this hotel empty and unloved. It's such a nice area, it's a real shame that nobody has bought and given it a new lease of life. We poked our head around the gate to the pool area (what was it they said about curiosity?) and noticed it has been colonised by cats, so at least it's... More

Am currently staying nearby and unfortunately the Merlin has been left to wrack and ruin. It's been looted and vandalised as there's no security. Shame.

My family and friends, (40+ people) adults teenagers, youngsters all stayed in the Merlin for 10days (5-15th August 2009) for my sisters 40th birthday. The hotel was mainly in good condition but some steps and plaster needing repair. All the rooms I saw were exceptionally clean and plenty of towels (the only reason beds weren't made on one occasion, was... More

Beware anyone who has already booked, as the Merlin is now well & truely closed so you won't be staying where you have... More

Resort was very quiet but hotel wasn't, plenty to keep you entertained if you wanted to be, weather was glorious, padded sunbeds, quiet pool and larger pool with games etc, staff friendly but overworked, food ok, you wouldn't go hungry but wouldn't put on any weight either!! Room was clean and space enough for 2, no more. Entertainment room was... More

Can I just say not one for writing bad reviews but just got back from Merlin Resort yesterday after 7 nights, with my husband and two young children. Weather fantastic but this hotel as seen better days, very old fashioned and could do with a total re-vamp! The pool itself is fine apart from the fact the blue paint comes... More
