Merchant House - A great value stay in the City.

**Coronavirus Update**

Following onto our recent update and the most recent government statement, it is with deep regret that I have to announce that, after many difficult conversations, I have decided to temporarily close Merchant House Hotel until further notice.

We are taking it month by month and have already spoken to all of our lovely guests that were due to stay with us in April.

I know how disappointing this will be for many of you and I would like to apologise to everyone for this disruption and thank everyone for their understanding that this decision has been made with the interest of yours as well as the teams wellbeing.

I will be closely monitoring all official advice given and we will certainly be back open as soon as it is safe to do so and look forward to welcoming our lovely guests back to enjoy a traditional comfortable stay with us.

We will still have a manager on-site therefore if you have any queries please email us on [email protected] and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

In the meantime, I hope you continue to stay safe and look after yourself and loved ones.

Nicky Whittaker – Owner
