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

The Mercury does not charge much and delivers far less! The Mercury is to the Premier Lodge as the Greasy Spoon Cafe is to Cafe Rouge. When I was there most of the clients arrived in vans. If you want a night in a stained, cold, noisy sixties box (with ensuite) choose The Mercury. That may be unfair because after... More

Stayed just the one night, mid-week. Great for motorway access. The room was clean and fresh although in need of a little T.L.C., the bathroom did need modernising but again spotlessly clean, comfy bed, lovely and quiet we both slept well

On arrival the place looked as I remembered. I don't remember the petrol station next door but the Subway was handy. Staff extremely friendly at welcoming. I... More
