Hamm itself is undistinguished, but pleasant enough and a convenient centre from which to visit the region. The Mercure is handily situated a short walk from the station and close to the main pedestrian streets. The rate charged compared favourably with other hotels, given that it included an excellent breakfast (complete with joke of the day!) The room was well appointed, though in my room the hairdryer was not working - though this was not a problem for me. Tea and coffee making facilities provided - bring your own biscuits. Reception happily provided the access code for free Wi-Fi, which worked well. For British visitors a special attraction was that the TV offered not only the (tedious!) BBC World found in most places, but BBC 1 and 2 and ITV! Friendly helpful staff completed the picture. The only evening I was free was the Sunday, when the restaurant was closed, so I cannot comment on that. Somewhere I shall happily visit again.
