The Merlin is situated in the middle of Marlborough's famous High Street, reputed to be the widest in England, in one of the most attractive and historic buildings in Marlborough.

With ten stylish rooms, the Merlin is situated in the middle of a bustling High St full of high class shops and restaurants including a newly opened famous Rick Stein fish restaurant, one of the flagship eateries of the famous TV chef, only 3 doors away. Everywhere in Marlborough can be accessed on foot from the Merlin and many world-famous heritage sites such as Avebury and Silbury Hill are just a short drive away.

The Merlin guest house is a classical palladium style building dating back to the 17th Century. The staircase is original and has a special listing. The Merlin is unique having been run by the same family for over 30 years.

The historic Georgian building boasts a listed 17th Century staircase which is believed to be the oldest in Marlborough. And the Merlin appropriately takes its name from a local legend - the belief that the sorcerer Merlin, adviser to King Arthur, is buried at a site known as Merlin's Mound in Marlborough.

The Merlin was recently awarded an impressive Four Star rating by Visit Britain, formerly the English Tourist Board.
