It's a nice pub but the hotel is run as a separate entity. This means that even at the weekend it is impossible to get a drink there after 11.00 pm. The room was large and airy and everything worked. The breakfast buffet was a little disappointing. If you just want a room I'd recommend it. If you want a...

We had a good stay but I suggest the staff need a bit more training in terms of hotel customer service. The attention seemed to be on the the dining guests not the hotel guests - don't be put off though, we stayed two nights and overall enjoyed our stay. It just didn't feel hotel like! We had a delicious...

Firstly the good , nice bar and gardens and an excellent evening meal , Now the bad , very poor breakfasts both in quality and service plus our room was small and quite noisy despite being at the back. The Inn is in a very good location to visit tourist attractions in the area which is why we stayed.

A wonderful well managed and well staffed hotel, the room was excellent, very comfortable and considering the location very quiet. The food was the winner both for an excellent boozy lunch and a romantic evening meal. on both occasions the food excelled and the staff were personable, and what a pleasure the breakfast was with all the staff being very...

Stayed here to attend a wedding in Macclesfield and for that end it is a great location, easy to find and navigate around the area from. Check in was at the bar which is a well maintained area and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. The general problem with the accommodation is the noise that can be heard...

I went out for a meal in the restaurant with some ex work colleagues. We have been coming to The Merlin every few months for several years. The last time we came we went home extremely disappointed, but decided to give it one last try. Wow, am I glad we did. The menu has been improved, the old atmosphere restored,...

The Merlin is an above average restaurant with accommodation and serves an excellent salt beef sandwich. Our room was huge over looking the car park. Noise from the restaurant was not intrusive, the bathroom well appointed and spotless. Breakfast was excellent, a continental breakfast that included cold meats, fruit and Danish Pastries. The only downside was a lumpy mattress which...

I booked here for my wife's 30th Birthday and would highly recommend this hotel. We stayed two nights and dined in the Merlin. We both had the 28 day dry-aged rib-eye steak which was the best steak I've ever eaten. We felt very relaxed in both the bar area and dining room with great decor. The rooms were brilliant, spacious...

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
