Nice location
It was really a nice place overall, but the shower drain was clogged and when you turned on the water, by the time it was warm enough to shower, the shower base was overflowing onto the floor. The drain was also dirty. I would expect they would check out the plumbing before they put you in a room like that, as when you are tired at the end of a long, you don't want to have bother trying to get them to fix the problem while you are in the room. So I was unable to wash my hair. Just took a sponge bath at the sink! Other than that it was very nice. Continental breakfast was nice.. No elevator, so would not recommend this place for people who have a lot of luggage or have difficulty managing a long staircase. But it was ok for for us.

Send Someone You Hate to this Place
We were disappointed that our dog was not welcome despite this hotel being listed as dog friendly. We were told that no hotels in Scotland accepted dogs, which was not true, but very distressing. We were told that we would not be refunded our pre-paid room fee. We refused to leave because we had nowhere else to stay. Only then did the owner say we could stay if we paid an extra fee for the dog on top of the already overpriced room rate. We were then led to a building two doors down from the hotel, with two big trash bins in front, to a damp, smelly, windowless cell in the basement! I could go on all day about how horrible this whole experience was but I've got a train to catch to the next stop on our otherwise wonderful Scotland holiday.

Great place on a budget
I stayed at the Merith during a weekend trip to see friends that had moved to the city from the NYC 4 years before. Just me. No wife and kids. I have to say for my solo expedition, Merith house was a great place for the price. The staff was really sweet and very helpful. There is a 5% additional charge for a credit card (just FYI). The room was small, but the city is awesome so who wants to stay in their room? The water pressure in the shower wasn't great but the water temperature was easy to control and it did the trick. The room was clean, the sheets were clean and the bed was soft. The breakfast is basic but the toast is warm, the coffee is hot (and pretty decent), and the jam selection is solid. Cereal, yogurt, and fruit were available as well but I'm more of a toast-and-coffee guy in the morning. The fact they include any breakfast was pretty awesome considering the price. The location is spectacular. across the street is a beautiful park with a playground for kids and a tiny golf course that looks like it's been there forever. Right outside the hotel is the bus stop for the 25 which takes you to city center, the train station, and an easy walk to the castle. To some of the haters, I have to say; what in the world did you expect? It's a budget hotel in a high rent area that actually SERVES BREAKFAST! I'm not sure I would stay there with the wife and kids as the space may become an issue but for rolling solo, it was a great place.

We could not stay there as room was so small and staff very unfriendly. They deducted full payment from our credit card without our knowledge.
