The Merton Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Rozelle B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Six family members stayed at the Merton during a recent 'weekend holiday' to Sydney and found the hotel to be perfect for our needs. It was very clean (even the bedding smelled fresh and clean) and a nice breakfast supplied (cereal, fruit, yoghurt, banana bread, muesli bars, juice and hot drinks). The beds were comfortable and the rooms were warm and cosy with a nice little sitting room between the rooms. The staff were very friendly and helpful and even though there is live music at night on weekends that didn't pose a problem. We would stay there again and would recommend it to other travellers. Very reasonably priced compared to others in the CBD with the added bonus of breakfast.

We stayed at the Merton for two reasons .... one ... it was the only hotel near Balmain where we went to see a band. Second, it gotta good review on Trip Advisor. Overall, the hotel is fine. Friendly & efficient check in ... continental breaky included ... room very clean & facilities were fine. Bathroom very clean and we would definately stay again ..... the only thing to know is that there is NO individual en suites .... but they DO tell you this before booking ..... as there were only 5 rooms to share two bathrooms we found this no problem at all.

Only a very short cab ride to Balmain & is the closest accom .... VERY GOOD

We came upon the Merton by chance (Google). What a wonderful surprise it was when we arrived. I'd always liked the idea of walking around and exploring the Balmaine district, so this was the ideal accomodation for us. We arrived latish on Friday night to a warm welcome from Aiden and . The bar/pub was alive with (more mature) locals who'd all gathered to enjoy the company, the atmosphere (fireplace burning) and the great live entertainment. We were shown to our room and straight away we were comfortable. Breakfast was great! Saturday was a short walk to the Rozelle markets (excellant) then a leisurely walk, with many stops along the way to take in the district and some fine food, down Darling Street, to the Balmaine Pier. Saturday night was another entertaining night, very tasty meal at a very good price and more live entertainment. Sunday was an easy trip into the city using the light rail..easy. The hosts and the locals really made us feel a part of their little community, nice...in such a big city. Will definately return..time permitting..for another weekend getaway.

Room Tip: Ask for a Harbour Bridge view
