We stayed at the Merlin for a friend's birthday party.
Booking process was a little complicated as when I rang The Merlin they cannot take room bookings as it is run by The Inn Keepers Lodge. I had to ring a different number and did not get a confirmation email or letter.
As we arrived the bar was really busy but we found a parking space and were seen to promptly.
They gave us the key and told us the direction of the room. They did offer to help with our bags but as we were only staying for one night we didn't need help.
We were given room 5. The room was small and had a strong smell of air freshener. The room was clean.
Once we had a shower we realised why the air fresher was there. The shower didn't drain properly and the bathroom smelt quite damp.
We ate there for the birthday party in a private room. The food was average and the service was fine.
When we checked out the following morning at 12, which is a decent check out time, especially after a party. Several of the other room doors were open for cleaning. every room we looked in was much bigger than room 5.
