Merton House Holiday Hotel

A Holiday Made For You

With the sole purpose of accessibility, comfort and care; Merton House Holiday Hotel provides specialist accommodation for those who are frail, elderly and/or disabled.

In the historic town of Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire, stands a beautiful Georgian house; now proudly held under the title of Merton House Holiday Hotel. Situated in this gorgeous location, it overlooks the river Wye and out towards the Black Mountains of Wales. If having these views right across from the window pane is not enough, only a short distance away you can find The Royal Forest of Dean. The forest offers a rich industrial history and acres of woodland where deer and wild boar still roam freely and, laying to the west, you can also find the Brecon Beacons.

Despite all these potential excursion destinations, how much or little you choose to do is entirely your decision. In-house, the lounge overlooks the gardens and is a great space for guests to relax, interact, have a drink and meet new people. During the evening it’s brought to life with the various forms of nighttime entertainment provided. Whether you want to get out and explore further afield or would prefer to stay and take full advantage of the hotel grounds, the staff will always be there to support you.

This Georgian property has 22 bedrooms: all those in the main house are complete with en-suite bathrooms and those on the ground floor wing are wheelchair accessible and some even offer garden views from the patio. There are three newly refurbished ground floor rooms with en-suite shower/wet rooms for guests who are full- or part-time -wheelchair users. All bedrooms are fitted with an Aid Call system which enables guests to contact staff in an emergency. This aims to bring peace of mind and make it easier for guests to relax - the best interest of both the care-giver and care-receiver is truly at the hotel's heart.

Merton House prides itself on warm welcomes, engaging environments, safe surroundings and good grub! Rest assured that you’ll dine well here through traditional home-cooked fare, using local produce, with all meals being cooked fresh to order. All types of special diets are catered for to sustain a healthy balance to the menus.

If you are a care-giver or care-receiver in need of a holiday somewhere your circumstances are a little more understood, why not take a closer look at what Merton House has to offer, here.
