“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

Took my mom and friend there, it was wonderful....food tasted amazing, very good portions and delicious in taste. Every dish tasted freshly prepared, we asked for some customised options and the chef catered to our needs perfectly.
Will definitely visit again and again ! Beautiful location too.
Service was very friendly, i think we were served by Sam but not sure what was the name exactly. Overall, five stars

“Too much money for instalations”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

The hotel is well located, very beatifull surroundings, the room had a good size but was not very clean.the bed was smaller than we are used to find in double rooms. There were coffee marks and dirty mugs and spoons at the coffee tray. with only one tiny window and no aircon or any kind of ventilation, the room was so hot that we couldnt even sleep properly.breakfast was very diverse, good service, attentive staff, when we checked out at reception and mentioned the heat, the receptionist was very rude saying that next time we should call with more time in advance so that he could change the "weather".!!!!

“Magic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

It was a Friday, and a pleasant Summers' evening, we hadn't booked, and found "The Merlin" by chance.
We received a very warm welcome, and were shown to a window table.
Tabitha, our waitress, was very attentive, and couldn't have been more helpful.
The meal was wonderful, the best sirloin steak I have eaten.
Give this Restaurant a try, you will not be disappointed.

“Awful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

Don't waste you time-high hopes when we drove up-impressive looking place , but food was awful-roast chicken dinner tasted like it was heated up from lunch but the worst was the liver-"chef cooks it well done!" Should have re-ordered then-it was like late in a chewy skin-worst I have ever tasted-will not be back......ever!
