This hotel is summed up by it's name: managed by Mercure - so you know what to expect; and based in Altrincham - so convenient for access to Manchester and the motorway. We were distinctly underwhelmed by the place - the best thing was the fried bread at breakfast. But the staff were friendly and the adjoining leisure club had... More

Stayed at this hotel for two nights when attending a Wedding nearby. Weren't expecting great things from the hotel and it lived to expectations... It's very tired round the edges.

Thank you for your detailed review of your recent visit. Whilst there is little we can do regarding air conditioning, as this is not a feature at this property, given the opportunity things such as difficulty operating a shower can be quickly resolved and hope you made a call to the desk on this matter.

I've just checked out of this charming little hotel, this hotel was booked for us for 3nights while we stayed in Manchester. The staff here are very present, helpful and friendly, this is why I've graded the hotel a 5star. Looking at the decor and facilities it may only be a 3 or 4 star, but having such nice hard... More

Staying here before going onto Manchester airport. Lovely and clean, friendly and helpful staff and ample parking when we arrived. Options of bar food or restaurant. We chose restaurant and the portion sizes and quality of food were both good. Prices for food is also good. Only 10 minute drive from the airport and booked parking through the hotel. Straight...

We stayed before travelling from MAN as we had a very early flight! We booked an executive room at a really reasonable price and everything was as could be expected! A large room with double bed and sofa bed, slippers and robes waiting on the bed, fruit and water in the room! Nespresso machine and a vast amount of TV... More

The hotel is in a convenient location if you are attending an event at the Bowdon Rooms and need somewhere to stay close by as they are just a 5-10 minute walk apart. The room was a good size and had a comfy bed, good television and provided complimentaries such as tea, coffee, shower gel and shampoo/conditioner. However, the bath... More

This is in a great location, but the building itself is more suited as a target for an apartment developer, and not a business hotel. There was quite an uphill-downdale trek to the rooms reminiscent of the 70s & 80s...goodness knows how OAPs make it with the lightest of luggage in tow! But the nature of the building is not...

Hotel needs some TLC. We stayed in a superior room which was very spacious. However I felt that it could do with some TLC and the bathroom dated. Breakfast okay but quality of the scrambled eggs/ poached eggs very poor. We had one overlooked and one undercooked poached egg. This hotel is okay for an overnight stay but would not... More

Appreciate the feedback and noted the comments which we will address quickly. As a general rule poached eggs are cooked to order so unusual that your eggs differed so much but regret this was the case and will relay these points to the breakfast chef. Paul Rodgers General Manager More
