“Overpriced for what it really offers”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2012

In itself, the room wasn't that bad, apart from the fact that the decor is really outdated (I could have sworn they had borrowed tiles from a McDonald's bathroom to place in their bathroom) and that we couldn't find the nob to turn down the thermostat of the room, which was on in may. Appart from that, the room was comfortable and clean. But that's it. The staff at reception was quite rude and not that helpful. We even had to wait a good five minutes before someone came to the counter to answer us when we came back to ask for something because the staff was at a table eating and chatting. Given the price of the room (close to a 100 euros without breakfast), it was pretty dissapointing. Better look somewhere else if you are looking for a nice room with good service.

Located out of the city center, the hotel is a classic modern construction, no charm. standard service and welcome. No recognition of Flying blue program at check in. Rooms are well equipped bed confortable but linen very basic. Bathroom ok except there was not hot water on that day... Breakfast offer good quality product and a large selection but the breakfast room is cheap. Hotel ok fro a one night stop or for group going to Abbaye de Lisieux.

Arrived late - 15 mins after restaurant had closed. No room service, no snacks ... no food whatsoever for sale in the Hotel ..... Etap & Ibis do better than this !! Asked at reception about local restaurants ..... met with "a shrug" and "I don't know". Allocated room on ground floor .... warm night .... no air conditioning ..... no shutters or roller shutters .... no security features on ground floor windows. Large floodlight outside window attracted bugs so put up with heat. Certainly not Mercure standard and should not be branded as such.

v. convenient parking free of charge in front of hotel

only negative comments:
pillows were too hard and bulky to our liking
a faint smell of smoke lingered in the rooms

Hotel doesn't have airco, so when it is hot outside you will notice it inside. Our room was located an the second floor. To allow fresh air to come into the room to cool it of we also had to accept the noise of the road running next to the hotel. Not so pleasant.
For the rest we can say the hotel met our expectations. Breakfast is free at times for those older than 55 which is a pleasant surprise of course but not known to everybody and this service varies per Mercure hotel.

We chose this hotel, because it accepts our 2 dogs and also because it is more or less en route to our next destination (Bordeaux). The reception staff were very friendly, spoke good english. The room is a typical Mercure hotel room, perfectly adequate. We had a meal in the restaurant, again a perfectly acceptable meal, but we found that the staff did not seem very friendly.
