A good business location for Beziers - however standard bedrooms are very small (the same size as the Ibis Bi#udget next door!!) in contrast to the well appointed Privilege rooms. Good breakfast and housekeeping standards EXCEPT the carpets throughout the bedroom floors need a very good clean!!! Hotel has a bar but no restaurant - but is just a short walk from the restaurants on Avenue Paul Riquet and in the town centre. Staff are friendly and helpful and willingly undertook document printing.
Certainly a central location for this hotel. Room a good size; toilet separate to the bathroom. Breakfast OK but nothing special. Staff a mixture of welcoming... and otherwise. We walked up to the hotel from the SNCF railway station and got an impression of the city that it warrants a day stay but not longer for leisure purposes though it could be reasonable touring centre.
difficult to find for a stranger to the area, surroundings unprepossessing, hotel configured somewhat as protection from the world outside. However the historic centre with restaurants and bars was within easy reach and staff were reassuringly helpful. Parking by necessity was very secure but at a price
If you're a proud Stopfordian, it'll be of great interest to you to visit Béziers in the Languedoc region of France. Why? Well, its the twin town of our beloved Stockport. Who knew? Twin towns was a scheme dreamed up in a simpler age. When Europe looked for ideas on how to nurture harmony between EU members, the less said about that in Brexit Britain, the better I would venture. As for the similarities between these ‘twinned’ bergs well, surprisingly, there are some. There's a bustling covered market situated close to an ancient church. A famous viaduct crosses an iconic river, and there's a sort of town plaza that looks nothing like Mersey Square unless you squint your eyes particularly tightly. Alas, the weather’s completely different. Even in mid-January, we could wander around Béziers town centre without chattering the teeth from our skulls. And as the year progresses, Béziers will become a sun-drenched hive of tourist activity. As opposed to Stockport, where you’re more likely to get drenched. How did they work out this twinning business? For our brief weekend sojourn, we stayed at the budget Mercure Hotel on Avenue Camille Saint Saens. We chose it for it’s accommodating price and the availability of parking. On this latter point, you’ll find the parking deep below the hotel. You drive through a series of automatic doors activated by your door card. The first time its a bit disconcerting but after a few goes you’ll get the hang of it. Our room was pleasant enough. Smaller than the online picture but clean and comfortable with a decorative theme of varnished wood. It was a bit of a squeeze for two adults with luggage. Pack light if you’re a weekender or go for a superior room if you need to swing a proverbial cat. We didn’t eat in the restaurant as breakfast wasn’t included in our tariff. And at €16 per head, it was too rich for our blood. Better instead to pop across the street to the boulangerie and get a fresh pain au chocolate for a mere €1. They do provide in-room refreshments but they are served in a paper cup, and there’s not enough milk for even a single beverage. So here’s another tip. Buy a jar of coffee and some milk from the local Carrefour Cite and borrow a proper cup and spoon from the Mercure’s restaurant. Then you can enjoy a coffee whenever you please and no need to ration the dairy! Overall, the Mercure Béziers is a perfectly acceptable place to use for a short city break. The rooms are OK and the staff, without exception were helpful and friendly. You won't have any problems if ‘compact and bijou’ accommodation doesn’t concern you. Whether it lives up to its 4-star billing well, that’s another issue altogether.…
Room very small and small ensuite , check in staff very polite and accomodating , a good breakfast in the morning with a good selection to cater for all ages , again staff very attentitive , parking was across the road on the main st , there was a small car park next door to the hotel , but was unsure if it was the property of the hotel
