Overnight stay before an early flight, I was not really expecting too much more than just a simple place to sleep, but was very pleasantly surprised in many ways. Firstly, top marks at check-in to Greg who tirelessly answered all our questions about how to take back our rental car, where we would find a petrol station, etc., as well as proactively offering to take our baggage to our room if we needed to take the car back straight away.
We stayed in a superior room, which was very well-equipped and had a great view out over the airport. Plenty of space for us to pack and re-pack our suitcases, and a very comfortable bed.
Only downside for the hotel is the shuttle bus service, which I found somewhat confusing. At the airport, there are a lot of identical, anonymous-looking buses that go to various hotels, and the only way to find out is to go up to each one as it arrives and ask the driver if his/her bus goes to your hotel. I guess this is the same for all hotels at this airport, so I don't think I can blame the Mercure for this aspect, but still it is something that could be improved on.
I have stayed in quite a few Mercure hotels in Europe, and I would say overall this was much better than any of those. I would definitely stay here again.
