Peaceful oasis in the centre of Patong

Nestled in the heart of the vibrant town of Patong and overlooking the white sands of the Patong Beach, the Patong Merlin Hotel is a friendly oasis complete with lush foliage, a range of facilities and rooms which offer a high level of comfort and subtle Thai furnishings.

Start your day with a visit the Coconut Coffee shop where you can enjoy a hearty buffet breakfast and later stop by here for Asian and international favourites sure to please every palate.

Nice hotel, let down badly by poor management

Greater Manchester, United Kingdom

The hotel itself is nice, with good facilities. Where they fell down was the poor management team. Whilst the general staff were wonderful and did their utmost to make our stay as enjoyable as possible, the management team were, at best, complacent, uncaring and ineffective. We had booked two rooms and found the bed in our room was broken. The first manager we spoke to refused to accept the bed needed changing and, after complaining, I was finally able to speak to a second manager. After checking the bed, he agreed the bed was broken and said it would be changed. When we returned to the hotel that night, we were told the bed had indeed been changed but in reality it hadn't. So the next morning I asked to speak to the senior manager but was told he was, somehow, unavailable all day. Strangely enough, when I said that I was not leaving reception till I spoke to him, even if it was over the phone, he miraculously appeared! We did finally get a bed change where they swapped our broken bed with a room down the corridor - so they just moved our problem to someone else! You really should not have to go through all of this hassle for a relatively simple request.

Almost perfect stay

Glasgow, United Kingdom

We had the deluxe bedroom which felt deluxe, great pool view and balcony, spacious, clean, comfortable, private too. Only downside was the air con which had a bit of a noise coming from it but this is to be expected. Location was perfect too, 10-15minute walk to anything you’re wee heart desires. Lively surroundings but once in the hotel you could relax. We had a bed and breakfast package. Breakfast met both our needs, great choices and great food. We only had dinner once as it was a tad pricey compared to the nearby markets but again, met our needs completely and for what we got the price was probably reasonable, just more expensive than what was near by. Spent 5 days here total and few days at the pools which wasn’t overly crowded or busy, just perfect to be honest as it had 3 pools to choose from. Would highly recommend.
