      Great value for money, excellent basic amenities”

      Would consider this hotel to be the best in its class at Port Dickson. Only suggestion is to increase the number of clothes hangers in the room. Otherwise, the basic amenities are quite complete. Walking distance to a 7-11 convenience store. Staff are friendly with smooth check in and check out. Found the aircon vent in my room to be dirty during check in. Informed the reception staff and he attended to it personally and promptly. The hotel is located further away from the beaches, and you will need transportation there.

      Merlin Hotel, last minute bookings”

      Fast and polite Service, Location is easily found, Acceptable Cleanliness

      Found the hotel easily, 24 hours reception was polite and efficient, had no issue for check-in/out. Night Guard outside is also friendly. However the originally provided room's floor was slightly sticky/oily. The electronic safe seemed to have power tripped prior to us turning in and refused to turn off. The staff decided to switch us to another room of same value which had no issues and was perfectly fine. Sadly it has no private/attached beach, which is the only biggest downside. Would recommend if anyone wishes to stay nearer the town when visiting Port Dickson.

      Why Port Dickson?”

      The Merlin is a pleasant, well maintained hotel just out of the main city area. It is quite close to a reasonable little beach and some good local restaurants. The city is about 20 minutes walk away. The rooms have tiny windows high up, so there is light but no view. Port Dickson itself has nothing much to offer the Western tourist. Most of the Merlin guests were Malaysians with cars - a definite advantage if you're not a big walker.

      Decent Stay Option for Family ”

      The room we were allotted was a family room meant for 3 adult and 1 child and was clean though lacked enough furniture to keep the luggage on. Had a small Led TV unit on the wall with only 4 watchable channels. There was no window and hence for people with claustrophobia, it would have been difficult. The bathroom was neat and clean and had hot and cold water options. They provide a bottle of water for each occupant and ready mix tea and coffee as well. Out of the room, there is not much to speak of - there is parking space but if the hotel is full, people have to double park in the night. There is a small children's play area for kids to while their time and a sit out for guests to sit and chat. Didn't come across any other facility apart from these. Hence, overall, used this as a lodge as most of the times, we were away enjoying the Scenic places in Port Dickson than to stay in the hotel, so it served our purpose right. The staff is courteous and helpful. The price is slightly on the higher side but given the location (walking distance to Pavilion Beach front), it's okay

      Hotel located at the heart of Port Dickson, near beach, and have good facility for family. Almost a perfect hotel, except the room need to be repaint a little bit to make it perfect. We were sad that we just stay at this hotel for a night. We wish to stay longer next time we visit Port Dickson.

      The rooms were very clean and so was the toilets and the Hotel itself. No funky smells in the rooms, toilets and Hotel. Generally very well located, near the town center and close enough access to the favorite beaches. Hotel was quiet even though next to main road. Front Office staffs friendly but unfortunately not well versed with local attractions information/details. Definitely worth a stay there if you are going to Port Dickson especially using Agoda's prices.

      Location is good since it near to beach and PD Waterfront. Free car park at its compound (but less than 20 lots). Fast and easy check in process. Room is spacious and clean with 2 queen beds but without window. Would suggest to have wall shelf to put baggage instead of putting them on floor. Shower is nice. Hotel provides water dispenser and ironing board. One of the problems is the room is not soundproof; we could hear very clearly when people talked at corridor. If you are not a light sleeper, then the hotel is very recommended.

      I dont expect much since this is a budget hotel. overall, the hotel was within my expectation. the hotel was suitable for those who wants a place for "rest and go". and of course the only nearer places of attraction is the nearby port dickson town. The provided wifi speed was great. the kid playground was also an added value.

      Merlin Hotel”

      good for young children because they have a small playground just in front of their reception. But if only they have a restaurant and offer a good breakfast it will make a Merlin Hotel a must to stay.

      Comfortable stay for a night, the family room was clean and spacious. Very near to PD Waterfront and few minutes to drive to beaches. Overall it's a very nice and simple hotel, will visit again ☺️

      Nice hotel - just abit noisy”

      Con: Overall this hotel condition is good and acceptable. However there is no sound proof between rooms. We can heard kids running and talking outside the corridor. Showering sound / Kid screaming sound from next door is also quite irritating whole night. Pro: Good location to Waterfront and the beach side. With Private Parking and security. Free Internet and water refill.
