“a wonderful 24 hours”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

i had the pleasure of taking advantage of a special offer for room dinner, breakfast, and picnic lunch at the merrill inn in picton, ontario. we were also given free coupons for wine tasting at two of the nearby wineries. i highly recommend this picturesque venue. the owner, edward was nothing less than extremely helpful, cordial, and made us feel as if we were sharing his home with him. our room had its own ballcony overlooking a beautiful garden. meals were quite good. the accomodations were spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. the location is convenient in terms of getting to the many attractions that prince edward county has to offer. a very worthwhile respite from the busy lives we lead in the city.

Room Tip: one can view all the rooms on line and choose. our room had a private balcony, the only one in the...

We chose a weekend getaway pkg and it included a dinner for two and a picnic lunch with two wine tastings at local wineries. The dinner was fabulous and prepared with careful attention, Our hosts were warm and welcoming and made each guest feel as thought they were special.We highly recommend staying at the Merrill Inn and hope to do it again soon.Dave & Audrey -Bobcaygeon

Room Tip: We were on the 2nd floor with our own balcony and it was great.

All parts of the Inn were superlative, from the warm welcome & explanation of the package, to the dinner & breakfast, to the picnic lunch & winery information. In fact the dinner was one of the best we have ever had. The quality of the ingredients, the preparation, the wine & the service were all top notch. The room itself was also excellent & of prime importance, the sleep was deep & long!!

No question we will visit again & take advantage of the beauty of the county (especially the wineries).

We took advantage of a spring special at the Merrill Inn to visit Picton & area. What a wonderful place to stay. The room was beautifully decorated & very comfortable. Owners & staff are warm & welcoming and focused on their guests. The restaurant is small & charming. The meal was fabulous, each course cooked perfectly & well presented. It is one of those meals you must eat slowly so that you can savor each mouthful. I especially enjoyed the wine pairings which gave us a chance to sample some of the local wines. Breakfast in the morning was also excellent & a picnic lunch was included to carry us through the day. The hosts have thought of everything to ensure a memorable visit. We will be back!

Room Tip: We were right at the front but did not really notice much traffic noise.

We have stayed at the Merrill Inn twice this year. We were impressed with the casual yet high end service and amenities in a Victorian setting. The owner was very attentive to our needs. The restaurant was excellent due to the skill of the chef. The wait staff were very courteous and informative as to the food being served as well as being local advisors of area attractions. We were impressed that the Merrill Inn is accessing local goods and services. We would recommend the Merrill Inn to anyone

Room Tip: Every room is unique and there are pictures of the different rooms on the Merrill Inn website

The Merrill Inn & the Restaurant deserve all the praise and high ratings that it gets. It is a real pleasure to find a very comfortable Inn with delightful and unpretentious hospitality and the real bonus of an excellent chef, excellent wait staff and very caring management. We spent two quiet and restful nights at the Inn in a wonderful airy bedroom on the top floor. We breakfasted very well each morning and the one dinner we ate there was superb. The food is very much an expression of the Inn itself, quietly excellent with no over-the-top flourishes. The wine list contains the best of the County's wine offerings which are also excellent. If you are coming to Picton and Prince Edward County for a night or two, I would not hesitate to recommend the Merrill.

Room Tip: Try the Suite 303 on the top floor - quiet and very comfortable

My company first started to book the Merrill Inn a few years ago for our work retreats and we never looked back. The hotel is lovely and every room is different. The hosts bent over backwards for every guest including our crew and made our stay comfortable and fun. The best meals that I have had the pleasure to dine on came from their kitchen. Every time I go there, and just when I think the food can't possibly get better, it does! Amazing presentation and cooked to perfection - from the appetizers through to their scrumptious desserts!
Even if I am not staying at the Inn, I will make dinner reservations when I know I'm passing through this location!

Room Tip: The rooms facing the back garden and gazebo are so charming!!
