From the minute you arrived to the minute you leave you are looked after by Jimmy and Beatrice. The Merlin is a B&B to be reckoned with. The rooms are tastefully decorated, the atmosphere is warm and friendly and the breakfast second to none  Our stay at Merlin was fab-u-lous as always and we will be returning. Many thanks.

Great value. Lovely greeting with friendly owners. Accommodation was quiet and cozy. Wonderful breakfast with the best scrambled eggs we have had during our holidays! Oh.... and a great location with a short walk to the town centre - plenty of sights to take in. We recommend this B&B 👍

This is first class Bed & Breakfast establishment. Mr. & Mrs. Murray are excellent host and hostess. If you enjoy poached eggs for breakfast. None can surpass Mr. Murray's. Just so yummy. Very peacefull and tranquill place to spend your nights. Luxurious furnishing. Comfortable beds ensures a perfectly sound sleep.
