Lovely hotel grounds and building. Difficult to find so make sure you've got a sat nav! Read reviews before booking and only issue people mentioned was the fact that there are no lifts and the rooms get very warm. So if you have trouble with stairs request a ground floor room if possible, and we had a fan in our... More

First impression was that the room was small and the facilities a bit jaded (had to pump the wc to get it to flush). That aside, and trying to forgive no draft bitter in the bar (seriously, what's that about?) and the extremely young restaurant staff (who's lack of experience was made up for by their sheer willingness and politeness...

Good points - lovely setting for wedding, rooms nice for an older building. Barman Fred very friendly, polite, helpful and a credit to the hotel, along with some other members of bar staff and female wedding party coordinator on the day of which I cannot recall their names. Bad points - a couple of rude members of staff that really... More

My partner decided to surprise me as part of our bank holiday weekend away by staying here on the Sunday night in the best room (442). To say it was a comedy of errors from the outset is putting it mildly. From 830pm we were serenaded by a lonely and very vocal chocolate Labrador in the neighbouring room. After some... More

Nice setting about 10 minute drive into Gloucester. Rooms in a bit of a rabbit warren but to be expected in listed building with fire regs. etc? Stayed 2 nights and still got lost! Breakfast OK, staff friendly. No draught bitter in bar - bit odd for country house English hotel? Really badly designed basin taps in bathroom, couldn't get... More

The most recent mercure hotel I stayed at was the iguzu falls in Argentina. If I gave that 10 out of 10 then i only give this 4 out of ten. The lowest score I've ever given for a hotel. I do expect a standard from a chain of hotels and had been looking forward to my stay. I can... More

Booked a one night stay to celebrate an anniversary, so paid a little extra for a privilege room. However, disappointed with the room. It was on the fourth floor with no lift facilities - bear this in mind. The room was a lot smaller than explained and also extremely hot and stuffy. The Nespresso coffee maker was there, but no...
