Last weekend my wife and I had an overnight stay at the merchant. Everything about this hotel has been carefully considered and it's all about the detail and the excellent service. The entire hotel has great synergy; the staff in all areas are well trained, the building itself is so opulent and the experience was second to none. Highlights include the food in the great room restaurant, the hot tub on the roof and the little extras in your room. I'll not spoil the surprise about the latter! The only negative and it's not really the hotels fault is the noise. We stayed overnight on a Saturday and the volume from the clubs and pubs outside was significant... significant enough to keep me awake until 3am! I would imagine it would be quieter midweek. The Victorian rooms, which we were in, would be affected more due to positioning and if I were to return again I would definitely opt for the newer, larger and quieter positioned Art Deco rooms which sit on the opposite end of the hotel. I do however feel that it is a testament to the hotel that I still feel that I had a five star experience. It is expensive but it's worth every penny!
