Our short stay at Merewood exceeded expectation. Staff are friendly and welcoming, the rooms are cosy and relaxing and there are plenty of places to sit by the fire with a good book. Views surrounding the hotel are breathtaking ! Breakfast was really good and the eggs benedict was delicious. Myself and my husband would definitely return!

We stayed for one night but could have done with longer. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The hotel was beautiful and the view from our first floor room was outstanding. We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay and look forward to returning at some time.

We stayed in room 6, which was an average sized room but with a generous bed and a lovely bathroom - the bathroom was lovely, shower was super powerful and the...
