The whole hotel looks shabby and outdated. Probably the height of fashion in 1970's. Most other reviews seem to say similar. However we found our room to be clean and the staff we encountered were very pleasant although only one had English as their first language and some had very little english and could not actually have a conversation.

I write this as I'm still at the property. I stayed for 1 night on business. Bit of a wait to check in but reception staff were friendly. Room 323 looks on to the rear car park. The room is extremely tired and nothing like the usual Mercure experience I have had in the past. Renovation is majorly needed. Other... More

We stayed here as part of a coach trip so checking was painless. Afterwards I did have to use the reception desk and found the girls very friendly and extremely helpful. We had a room on the ground floor near the swimming pool, so probably the furthest point from reception, bar and restaurant. The first floor is wooden so any... More

Stayed for 2 nights in June. Upon arrival instead of twin room we were given a double (travelled with my female colleague) despite specifically requesting twin! We were quite disappointed to see a double bed. When we complained we were told we'd need to pay extra to get a twin room which is bizzare!! Very poor service.

Mercure Stairs and Hallway above the room. Very squeaky and noisy every time someone walked that way. This was not a quiet room at all! The entire ceiling shook when people walked above the room- creaky and could hear every word spoken! This is the worse family room. Bar closed at 23:00 and bluntly refused to serve us as she... More

Stayed for the first time (normally stay at Premier Inn, Croxley). Not sure if hotel is going through renovations as if you look left from reception it all looks.....tired. Looking right and it looks quite modern and stylish. The room was adequate with standard kettle and packet coffee etc but it also had a coffee machine (nespresso) + 4 capsules,... More

The room lacked information not only about the local area but also what is available in the hotel. My Fiance and I would have gone for some spa treatments if any of the information was actually in the room. The room was filthy and the free standing lamp, which acted as the main light, had such a thick coating of... More

We only stayed 1 night so can't comment at length. I expect though that a fundamental necessity for the bathroom is a door -for privacy and blocking out unpleasant noises!! The rooms are tired-again, no wardrobe door-what do they have against doors for heavens sake? And the noise is really bad-people walking above sounds like a herd of elephants. No,... More
