I stayed here recently for 2 nights, a single female. I can honestly say I was made most welcome, and staff and owners were very friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable and clean, although a bit tired. Comfy bed, plenty of hot water and modern small tv. Evening live entertainment was good in the bar with very reasonably... More

Paid for 2 nights and could only tolerate 1 of them. Yes it is clean and good location on a main road but the overpowering stench of damp/musty/mould made the stay unbearable. Very run down bathroom. Very thin walls.

From the outside the place looks grubby, from the inside not much better. Everything a bit old. Bed comfy but noise from the bar and function rooms goes on til late. Car park small for the incoming guests. Seems very popular as a party venue,

On the outside the motel looks in need of some TLC. On entering premises they are clean and tidy in parts there is a slight aroma of dampness. Spoke to the delightful owner who confirmed issues with roof and central heating which have been repaired. Rooms were clean and tidy some furniture in need of an upgrade. But the real... More

The Mercury is easily accessible on the outskirts of Bolton. There is ample car parking and the place is built like a traditional American Motel. Yes some rooms are "tired". Yes some bathrooms could be updated. The main point is this place is excellent value for money. Clean and serves good food. Good nights sleep and very friendly staff. As... More

Shabby motel with not much about it. Staff rude and unprofessional, generally an all round bad experience! Loud dance class on during the week with lots of functions at weekends. Only good thing about it the cheap drinks. Try elsewhere, wouldn't give them my money!

A last minute booking, I wasn't expecting much. But the sheets were clean, as was the room in general. It's been spruced up (well my room was anyway) but obviously the budget didn't stretch to stripping the old textured wallpaper. It was a perfectly acceptable night's sleep. However I normally try to stay in a really nice farmhouse B&B bursting... More

Was quite happy with room cleanliness except the heating was on FULL WHACK when we landed late and the room was unbearably hot with only a small window it was tough to get any cool air in. Was looking toward to a soak in the bath after a long day - but there was no bath plug!!! Bathroom wall was... More
