    Mermaid first stay

    The third Marstons I've stayed at. This is perhaps an older one as things seem a little tired. However, I will stay at there other hotels again as they have always been good. The food next door was enjoyable and good value

    5/5 Excellent

    Great generous size rooms and comfortable beds. Plenty of space in a family room even with double bed and TWO sofa beds. Everywhere clean except walls which looked a little grubby especially in bathroom - stood out as everywhere else still seems shiny and new. Easy to check in (I was early and they wouldn’t budge on the 2pm check in time). Breakfast superb value as kids eat free. Staff friendly. Parked right outside nightguard and car park lighting with ease, seemed safe all round. As well as the mermaid pub, Burger King and Starbucks in walking distance. Cinema complex and usual restaurants not much further Highly recommend.
