“Such a lovely place...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

Sometimes you arrive at a B&B, and just know that you're going to love it. A friendly welcome, a nice room, and a really superb breakfast the next morning. (And this may sound strange, but I really appreciated the fresh fruit with the tea and coffee making things. After a walk along the South West Coast Path, it was just what I wanted, and such a surprise.)

Merritt house is home from home, we were greeted after a long slog on the motoway (4hrs) with a cup of tea, homemade cakes and a very welcoming Diane. The room was great and very comfortable. The breakfast will not fail to impress, it is safe to say that it is very hearty and will fill anyones belly, in short we were stuffed. There is a very wide selection of breakfasts, so if you wanted to try someting else, Diane and Paul have thought of everything. All in all, I cannot fault Merritt House, it's a smashing place and in fact we will be staying again in a cuple of weeks for the BMAD weekend.

We had a warm welcome with tea and cakes, our room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was lovely. The location is quite but close to the seafront and shops with parking for the car. We enjoyed our stay. Thank you.
