I visited the home during celebrations of a 100th birthday. Merwood looked gorgeous and set out lovely. It definitely is home from home. No smells. Every resident I met were very happy and didn't have a bad word to say. The management are well trained and carers too. Gardens great and bedrooms lovely.
