We stayed at the Merton for 5 nights in August with our two kids. The hotel has plenty to keep the kids busy. The pool complex across the road is excellent. A very safe place and i felt comfortable letting my two swim around unsupervised. There is also an excellent gym with weigths and cardio equipment, although it only had one bench which was always being used.
The hotel had 3 restaurants within it. The italian was very nice and a good menu ( and kids choice), the burger bar was OK for what it was and we did not eat the main restaurant for tea. This is where breakfast is served. It is a bit manic at breakfast times and if you can make it through the crowds the food is of a good standard. There are loads of places to eat out in St Helier also.
The entertainment in the evening was also very good and we attended the quizes and kids club most nights. Drinks werent that cheap but all in all it was worth it.
There were only a few negative points - one you have to pay £5 deposit per towel at the pool, and if you loose your receipt (like i did) you wont get your money back until they cash up at night. Still they did give it back to me. The family room we stayed in was nice although the bathroom was very small. For this type of room I would have expected more space and air con. I am not sure why modern hotels dont all have air con - to keep cool you have to have the windows open which then becomes noisy.
Overall, it was a great hotel, the staff were well trained and coureous and I would defiantely visit again. However i would not recommend it if you are travelling without children!!
