- The hotel is very dimly lit throughout (bit depressing) and seems to be targeted more towards guests on business trips than a family or couple.
- Hotel Wifi costs £4 for an hour, with decreasing hourly rates for longer periods of use. I have never in my life been charged for using hotel WiFi so consider this to be unscrupulous in the extreme.
If every other hotel I've ever stayed in can provide this free of charge why not Mercure Exeter?
- Incredibly, they charge guests £8 a night to leave their car in the hotel carpark during their stay. I have never known any other hotel to do this, and I've been to quite a few.
Upon trying to leave the hotel the next day, I had to repark the car as the card they gave me to scan at the barrier did not work. Had I been on a business trip the extra 10 minutes it took me to repark the car, go to reception, get a new card, and then leave again could have caused me to be late for a meeting. Highly inconvenient.
- I wouldn't say the milk at breakfast was warm, but it was certainly not cold.
- Don't bother ordering desert, it looks like it was bought from a supermarket and thrown in the microwave for 3 minutes. For the amount I was paid I exepected better.
- Hideous cow hide seats (with cow fur intact). I don't think i need to expand on this.
- The staff were adequate, but no more than that. I think the dark working conditions that they must be subject to has probably had an impact on morale.
+ Leisure facilities including the pool are good, and the hotel is clean and tidy
+ Location provides easy access to city centre
