Second to none as the ideal place to be spoiled, indulged, and satisfied 101%. High value, variety, and THE best staff -- whether I was asking for a second pot of restorative tea, a wifi connection, or marveling at personalized turn down service. Merchant Hotel please don't change a thing--you are perfect!

Room Tip: Book early and sample spa, afternoon tea, and extraordinary array of services

Our family stayed at the Merchant Hotel for a family wedding. It was an excellent venue. The staff were most helpful to us all. My daughter and her husband who have three very small children, babies really, were particulary well looked after, so we all enjoyed our stay, as did all the wedding guests.

Room Tip: It is a good to use the hotel valet car parking system.

We went for the celebrate in style package which included parking, champagne and petite fours in our room along with dinner. From the minute we arrived we were treated like royalty. Our concerige, William, showed us to our room and did a good job of explianing all the features along with giving us a bit of history regarding the furnishings. The staff were very polite and unbelievable professsional. Our room was spacious and had everthing we needed. The cocktail bar was excellent as were the cocktails. We ate in the restuarant and had the taster menu which was unbelieveae. Something not to be missed is the hot-tub on the top floor offering views over the city, the perfect place to relax. Definately worth pushing he boat out to stay in this fantastic hotel.

Fantastic hotel. Stunning room and extremely friendly staff. I have stayed in quite a few top class hotels but I think this 1 is the best. Got the room at a reasonable price and the food was exceptional. Would recommend tis hotel for a little bit of the luxury if thats what your after.

we stayed for two nights before our honeymoon in the old part of the building. It looked amazing and had a great atmosphere. The staff were brilliant, bringing me honey and lemon as they knew i had a sore throat. soo kind, and unlike some expensive hotels they do not hang around waiting for tips, the great service is all part of your stay. cant wait to have an excuse to go back.
