"Excellent value for money, warm welcome, spotlessly clean with a wide range of delicious breakfasts."

Our stay was very relaxing and we stayed in a very comfortable double room with high standards of cleanliness throughout. The breakfasts were second to none, offering a wide variety of food to suit all tastes. The accomodation is in an excellent location, just off the main sea front. We received a very watm welcome and would definitely stay at Merritt House again and we would also highly recommend it! This B&B is a non smoking establishment, which was very important to us. Everything was clean, fresh & very welcoming. It was great having breakfast prepared each morning to such a high standard.


“Relaxing :-)”

My husband and I celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary here. Everything was fantastic and a warm friendly welcome upon arrival. You could see the owners take pride. And the breakfast menu was out of this world! Thankyou so much... WIll VISIT AGAIN... :-D



Excellent accomodation with the owners going the extra mile all the way along the line. We have just spent three nights there and everything we could need was catered for and everything shone like a new pin. We were all very impressed especially with the detailed information on everything you could possible want to do on a holiday whatever your interest or budget. ..


“Brilliant! Better than many hotels!”

We stayed for two nights here as a short break at the seaside. We could not recommend this place highly enough! The rooms were clean, comfortable and had absolutely everything you could want. The owners were brilliant, really friendly and could not do enough for us to make us feel welcome and comfortable.

One of the standouts for us was the breakfast! Their AA Award is definitely well earned! The menu was great and varied - something for everyone. The food was absolutely delicious and you could tell that all the ingredients were fresh and carefully prepared.


“Short break”

We stayed at this B&B for four nights in August and can honestly say it is a really welcoming place to stay. The host and hostess are really nice and the breakfast menu was as good as many bigger hotels but served with the personal touch. Our room was perfectly adequate for our needs proving a comfy bed with en suite and a good selection of drinks and biscuits. We would recommend this hotel and will stay there again


“Lovely stay”

Well it does what it says it will do only better, lovely owners who put much effort into making you welcome as possible. The breakfast choice and portion size are legendary, I have a healthy appetite and I struggled to finish the full sized English breakfast. Our room was more than big enough, with a 6ft wide bed, quality bedding carpets and curtains, double glazed easy to open windows. The owners have overlooked nothing supplying all the little things in the room and bathroom we wanted for nothing. If you want to bring a take away back they leave plates and cutlery in the dining room. You can also help yourself to afternoon tea and home made cake and a donation to a local rescue team is requested. Well done folks.
