We stayed at the Merlewood for four nights as part of a coach tour with GB Tours. Russell was very attentive and made us feel very welcome on arrival. Our room was excellent with a view over the swimming pool and the Saundersfoot vista beyond. Meals were fairly basic but of a very good quality. The hotel is a little... More

Used as a base during the Ironman Wales weekend and really couldn't have asked for anything more! The hotel (although maybe a little dated) is very clean and tidy, well organised and the staff couldn't be more friendly and attentive not just to me and my wife but even towards the children. Definitely recommend, the Merlewood and consider returning next... More

From beginning to end, the stay was fantastic, speedy check in, room was at the back so did not have a view, and would pay extra next time as the view of Saundersfoot bay from the terrace was fab, nice swimming pool which guests were using as we had fantastic weather. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, must... More

The hotel is a bit of a walk up a steep hill, takes about five minutes at most if your relatively got. The hotel itself is clean and the guy on reception who also mans the bar couldn't have been more friendly. I complained about the matrice in our room and that day it was changed.

We arrived at the hotel Saturday afternoon and our room was ready for us. The room itself was a bit tired and old fashioned but clean.
