I can see from the other reviews that many people have loved this B&B. I would like to share my experience because although it is beautiful it was absolutely not for us . Peaceful surrounding area, lovely view of a garden and pool from the room. The room is nice although old fashioned - (wall to wall carpet in the bathroom, very soft beds, dog smell in the entry, latest breakfast option 8.45 and checkout at 10 so if you're looking for a relaxing lie in do not stay here). Our main frustration was the communication with general approach. The owner first insisted on communicating by letter. Then sent an email requesting a deposit. Then demanded the full amount via bank transfer quoting her terms and conditions. We had trouble finding the B&B because it is very tucked away and rather then being welcoming on the phone demanded to know why I had not read the letter with the instructions. When I said I had not received a letter it then came to light that she meant an email and then wanted to show me on her ipad that she had sent me an email - this was the minute we walked in the front door.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Merzie Meadows is unique and has its own special charm with conservation areas that draw the most interesting birds into the garden. Whichever room has been chosen both have lovely views over the grounds and garden and offer a good deal of peace and privacy being contained in separate wings of the house. Convenient for London, ideal for longer stays, recommended in Alastair Sawdays "Special Places to Stay" British Bed and Breakfast. ... more less
