Merlin was a pleasant surprise - us, the industry people, always expect the worst!!
Lovely modern room, flatscreen TV on the wall (although a bit of a temperamental remote control - did what it wanted to do, not what I wanted it to do) and exceptionally friendly staff... there was a maintenance issue in my room, but it was dealt with rather well.
One negative are light fittings, particularly in corridors - nothing wrong with them design wise, very beautiful, but the lamps give out so much heat, it is unbearable!! (admittedly, it was a hot weekend). Try changing for low energy bulbs guys...
Overall - great! If they promise to install air con, I'll be back very soon.
On the restaurant note, great food, excellent service and a really great garden - cured my hangover in no time!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestled between Wilmslow and picturesque Alderley Edge, this elegant lodge gives you all the charm of a country hotel only 12 miles from Manchester.Dating back to the 1880s and dripping with original features and luxurious touches, it's amongst some of the most characterful accommodation in Cheshire. In fact, it was once one of the grandest private residences in wealthy Alderley Edge. Today it offers 10 comfy, modern rooms and a cosy pub and restaurant, where you can savour fresh, seasonal food in the warmth of a crackling open fire.Alderley Edge may boast the highest number of millionaires per square mile in the country, but there's much more to this pretty village than star watching. It's built upon a sandstone escarpment that overlooks the Cheshire Plain, where walkers will find many picturesque routes criss-crossing its beautiful scenery. The National Trust's Quarry Bank Mill and stylish Knutsford are also well worth a visit. ... more less
