Stayed here last night for the Elton concert. Ideal location, friendly and polite staff, extremely clean with a fantastic breakfast. Not the Ritz but what do you expect for the price.. Fantastic value

We visited this hotel for a 1 night stay, bed very very comfortable, the room could do with a bit of a revamp, but I understand that they are revamping the motel at present. My parents room was much better than ours, but I have to say very clean and tidy, just a shame about the décor. Staff very very... More

Spent one night here whilst visiting family. Don't imagine that we'll repeat the experience! On the plus side, the welcome was very friendly, and the room was spotless. The twin beds were comfortable enough. The room was very warm when we entered, but turning off the radiator and opening the window brought temperatures down to an acceptable level. However, everything... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay here at the Mercury. We were unaware until the chef came in for breakfast that the boiler had cut out and therefore not produced hot water. We put that right immediately and there was water by the time breakfast was under way, but appreciate that that was not a welcome... More

2 night stay, great staff, warm and friendly. Ideally located for visiting local attractions around Manchester including The Trafford Centre. The room was clean and a good size, though the bathroom was a little chilly (no heater)

The breakfast is lovely, the staff welcoming, (and throughout our stay) warm and friendly. The surroundings need some attention but I don't think this is wholly the fault of the current proprietors. (the lease is up for sale) This price is very, very reasonable for the venue ( 2 in room for £40) add Breakfast for £5 - toast, cereals,... More

Stayed at the Mercury a couple of weeks ago. My room was clean and tidy with lovely clean linen and plenty of towels and toiletries. It was quiet and warm, so I had a great nights sleep. Really convenient for the motorway. Breakfast was quick and really tasty. They have a bar that you can use in the evenings and... More
