Not 4 star but v good
Very good hotel 4 star seems a little high rating but would stay again, towels were very small
John, gb1 night business trip

Not as good as previous stays
I have stayed here a few times over the years, this stay straightaway I noticed the outside started to look tatty. Bar service on the Saturday night was dreadful, the night porter was the only one available to serve (I use that term very loosely). The whole place compared to previous stays looked like a little neglected. We asked for a second key and was told they only 20 keys left and 24 people still hadn't checked in. If I hadn't stayed here before it probably would have seemed fine, I would stay again, the place was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful as they could.

Family room, childs sofa bed was awful hardly any foam on the mattress and could feel the springs! Shower nearly overflowed due to blocked plug hole!

Happy with hotel. Would have been nice to know that the hot tub was not in use before we arrived, girls used the pool so they were happy. disappointed with paying parking!

Needs updating compared to other Mercure hotels. Very convenient location. Unfortunately we were tied to eating at the hotel in the evening and for the cost of the food it was very poor.

A bit of update needed!
This is a nice hotel but has a bit worn out facilities. Extremely slow WIFI had to stay on my own mobile data connection. Hopefully, that was just an exception. Friendly and lovely staff, though!

Pleasant hotel in a good location. However, starting to look a bit tired, need some new towels and to tidy up the trays left in corridors after room service!
