About Merlin

Merlin provides budget accommodation near the centre of Port Dickson and just a five-minute drive from its waterfront.

The 37 en-suite bedrooms may be basic, however, they are smartly decorated and air-conditioned. Guests can relax in front of a flat-screen TV with satellite channels and make use of the tea and coffee making facilities.

Merlin provides complimentary Wi-Fi and onsite parking, as well as a 24-hour front desk. Children can play safely in the recreation ground and gardens.

Guests can grab a bite in the local 7-eleven store, just a couple of minutes' walk away. Otherwise they can try out Spice's Curry House, a short drive along the road, or a host of eateries on the waterfront such as Kim's Seafood Palace.

The well-renowned Teluk Kemang beach is about a 15-minute drive away, a couple of kilometres further on than the Port Dickson Golf and Country Club and Sri Anjeneyar Temple.

Positive Reviews

Good location for Port Dickson centre

Guests often choose this hotel for its strategic position near the centre of Port Dickson or the waterfront, just a few minute's drive away. Right off the main road leading to the town, you can access all the main attractions pretty easily.

Pretty good value

For the price you pay, you can't help being satisfied with the rooms. Guests say the rates are cheap, but you still get a modern and spacious room. It is pretty clean too and comfortable on the whole.

Friendly staff

Even if it is a value hotel, the staff don't seem to skimp on customer service. Guests feel valued and looked after by the friendly and smiling staff.

Negative Reviews

Wi-Fi is bad

If getting online is essential to you, you may well leave here frustrated. Guests say there is little or no Wi-Fi connection. When it is available it is so, so bad that you may not wish to bother.

No light, lots of noise.

If you are seeking a bright and quiet room to relax in, this is not your place. Guests comment that the walls are very thin and there is little to no natural night. You may be able to hear every word uttered by your neighbours, the programmes on their TV or the traffic from the busy main road. If you do have a window in your room, the chances are it is pitifully small and high up, rendering it pretty useless.

Lack of facilities

There is not a great deal at this hotel. Guests are frustrated that there is not even a pool, despite the decent beaches being far away, whilst even the free parking seems to be insufficient. Don't expect many TV channels either or even a wardrobe!
