Was a nice stay - very hot day and like most UK hotels - no AC. Windows open meant a lot of noise. Some rooms even had heating on in the height of the summer - some fault with the heating apparently. Good value and a nice breakfast.

Room VERY small, double glazing broken down, no air con so had to leave window open. No fridge, safe, basic bed, pool no access from hotel - have to go out and round, plastic toilet seat that rocked when you sat on it, hard cheap pillows. Not worth £60 a night and not a great sleep as so hot and... More

We recently stayed the night at the Mercure. The staff were friendly and the food at dinner in the restaurant was well prepared, tasted good and was priced reasonably. The hotel was let down by a few points (1) the noise from the kitchen ventilator (outside our bedroom window) was consistent and annoying - until it was turned off at... More

I very much regret you were disturbed by the external extract system possiblt made worse during the warm spell we have enjoyed when windows are left open. Clearly we need to make more effort to move smokers from close proximity to the front entrace as I know this can be very off-putting to a none smoker. On a brighter note... More

Just to say some IBIS are more luxurious than this Mercure, contrary to the advertised picture when you’re booking the room. Small room, some noise all night from a vent or drying room, smell of paint, they just enter our room before 8 to clean it?! No internet as “too many active subscribers” and so on…

We do not claim to be luxurious but do believe the hotel to be bright, comfortable and clean but regret we did not meet your personal expectation. Standard rooms are not overly large but superior rooms do have a much larger footprint and may be more suitable to your requirements should you be considering a future visit. We have recently...

Great location, 5min walk to Hale which is lovely. Rooms are tiny! Im pretty sure that it was not a double bed but a slightly larger single. That said i am basing this on only having seen one room. I couldnt say much about the service as we hardly spoke to any staff. There was a wedding pn saturday which... More

Firstly I regret that you found the room to be small but difficult to comment in any detail as there is insufficient information to identify which room was allocated to you but had it been booked for 2 persons I feel sure you would have had a double room. Like most hotels there can be a variety of events going... More

We booked a business stay for one night from lastminute.com for myself and my manager at the Mercure Bowden Hall for 19th June. We paid £64 per room without breakfast. We were allocated room 109 and 110. The rooms were really small and very shabby. I stayed in room 110 and the wooden architrave was falling off the wall there... More

Had a nice stay unfortunately could not use all the facilities as visiting family and with them most of the day. Unfortunately the person I was with did not drink alcohol. Breakfast staff were very pleasant and always around. My only gripe being us both ladies over 65 they stuck us in the heavens and there was no lift hence... More

Pleased to hear of your good experience, sorry about the forced workout having to go up 2 flights of stairs. We do have lots of ground floor rooms and allocate these to guests if they make advanced requests Paul Rodgers General Manager More
