Stayed 2 nights on business, could not fault! all staff were very friendly including reception staff! Contrary to recent reviews!! Breakfast was a combination of buffet for the continental & waited for the cooked. Quality was more than adequate. Dinner menu is a bit limited but if you can't find something you fancy then perhaps you're being picky!!!! I don't know how often the menu is changed so may be limited for a longer stay. Well cooked & well presented. A bit on the pricey side, starter, main, dessert & a coffee was £30ish, no drinks!! £22 for 3 course table d'hôte menu though!
Room was a good size, cleaned well, as was the bathroom, no air con so had to have the window open at night, may be a problem for female guests as the room was on the ground floor with a car park outside the window, flat screen TV but still has the limited channels of the hotel chain set up. No excuse for not having all the digital channels available nationally now. A big plus is free wifi throughout the hotel, glad to see Mercure are recognising internet connection is now expected as much as the iron & the kettle! service speed upgrades are available but the basic is adequate. Middle of the week stay so was very peaceful, the grounds are extensive & well back from the road, so no traffic noise! its only a lane but looked like it is a rat run, no footpath & traffic is fast so not a good idea to attempt a walk out. Well out of town so will need a car to get around or it's a taxi ride, £8-£10 from Parkway station, further to city centre. So could be a bit trapped without transport! I would imagine it could be noisy at the weekends as weddings are well promoted, so maybe worth a check first if you can!!
Only disappointment was that the indoor pool is now closed, presumably a corporate decision, it was only a small pool with a jacuzzi & a couple of exercise machines but nice to relax at the end of the day on previous visit. I hope the decision is made to reopen or replace!
Would certainly use again.
