“Excellent Merlewood House”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Staying at Merlewood House is a treat in itself. The highlights are:
1. Excellent location, walking distance to the seafront, harbour and shops.
2. Fantastic breakfast prepared to a very high standard, with many options.
3. Decoration and furnishings are beautiful.
4. House steeped in history and interest.
5. Hostess, there when you need her but not intrusive, knowledgeable and helpful.

Put Merlewood House at the top of your list :)

Room Tip: All rooms are appointed to a very high standard, 2 are Kings.

We have just had a two night stay and we must say what a wonderful place to stay in Torquay. Such a super room and everywhere was so clean and very attractive.
Wendy was the perfect host,so welcoming, and her breakfast's were absolutely the best we have ever had in Torquay. We would thoroughly recommend to anyone.

A trip can either be made better or worse by where you are staying at and the people you meet along the way. Wendy and her beautiful Merlewood House made our stay a lot better. Super-cozy, clean and stylish rooms w/ a breakfast to die for, all made by someone you don't want to miss out chatting with for a while.

Myself and my other half stayed for our anniversary at the beginning of June and it was a truly relaxing stay. Wendy was incredibly accommodating and made sure we had everything that we needed, as well as cooking the most fantastic (and very filling) breakfast each morning! The room was decorated beautifully - we stayed in the green room which was the perfect choice for an anniversary. Wendy was really helpful and suggested local places to visit as well as giving us options for where to go for our meal out (see review for The Orange Tree!). I could not fault our stay, if your looking for something classy but with a homely feel this is the place for you.

We stayed at the beginning of July and from the moment we entered the front door we both felt a sense of calm. Wendy greeted us and was most helpful recommending places to eat that evening. The room was beautiful, relaxing, very clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful and nothing was too much trouble for Wendy. We were able to relax in the garden which was also beautiful. I had a session of reflexology with Wendy which was most therapeutic and also very interesting. Wendy recommended places to visit and couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. An amazing weekend in a beautiful house with the perfect host. We will most definitely be returning!

My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights in May and had a brilliant time. The house and rooms are beautifully furnished and very cosy. The bed was especially comfy and i had the best 2 nights sleep id had in ages. Wendy is the perfect host and made us feel welcome and like one of the family! The house is situated just a short walk from the sea, shops and bars which is great if you haven't got transport and saves in taxis.
thanks for a brilliant weekend Wendy. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Really nice stay, extremely clean and comfortable. Breakfast more than what one would expect from your typical bed and breakfast.

Perfect location, really close to the harbour but still away from the noisy weekend crowds.

Wendy, the owner, was extremely helpful, always with a big smile and great suggestions for walks and restaurants. She even kindly offered to drive us from and to the station as we didn't have a car.

Overall, a very relaxing stay. Good value for money.
