Good location, needs a refurb

Customer review rating 3.8/5

Nick S. Business - 14/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The location worked really well for the course I was attending. I could walk to the venue, it is also close to the town for shops etc. Being honest the decor needs a review it looks tired, some of the carpets were stained, the hall carpet outside my room was ridged from cases or maintenance trolleys. The room I was in (33) had very bad fitting doors to the balcony, so much so that I could keep a drink cool by placing them on the floor. The staff were excellent. All the rooms are named after mayors of the town which i thought was a bit different. The Shower was very hot but the shower head was not pleasant to look at rusty and stained etc. Who I go back, yes, would I take my wife, not a chance?

Below a basic standard

Customer review rating 3.8/5

Anonymous Business - 13/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

There was no air conditioning, no radiator and no other form of heating in my room, I had to ask for a temporary heater as it was freezing. The front doors at reception were broken so had to be kept locked or wide open. The carpets are dirty, the interior throughout the hotel is dated and in need of a refresh. It was more like staying in a B&B in Blackpool then a hotel in London. This hotel is very poor and I would not recommend it to anyone.

Zdena G. Business - 13/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I like Mercure, the check in is quick, the internet works, the room is clean. It's a nice 2km river walk to my office, and it's walking distance both into town and to the railway station, so it's convenient. My only gripe is that the room is cold when I check in and I have to wait for the heating to do its thing, and I'm missing a plug next to my bed to charge my phone overnight, but otherwise, I'm happy there.

Dear Zdena G., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Mercure London Staines upon Thames Hotel. We are delighted to read that you had an excellent stay and enjoyed your visit at our hotel as always. It is always encouraging to learn that guests are satisfied with our service as it is what we strive for every day. We have noted your comments regarding the heating and please rest assured that this will be followed up with the correct departments to ensure this will not re-occur. Thank you for your kind feedback, and we hope to see you again soon for another pleasant stay here with us. Sincerely, Laura C. Reception Team Leader

Christelle Business - 13/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Car park was full on arrival, with non guests using spaces (as I had to wait for some to return and collect their cars). Then had to wait to be acknowledged at reception (if you can't serve me straight away then at least say hi while I'm standing in front of you), room was very noisy - creaking floor, noise from other rooms and outside the hotel- I was woken by an alarm from another room.

MDebono Business - 09/02/2020 TripAdvisor review

The hotel has a charm all of its own. Staff and Food quality excellent. It just needs upgrading. Did not appreciate the fact that there was no breakfast on Saturday morning . I needed to check out early and was told i would have to order breakfast. This is just not on .

Awful. The hotel had a very shabby, uninviting exterior. Main 'automatic' door broken and the room was not clean, hair on the rather grubby-looking, bed covering. Carpets throughout were stained and dirty. We did not stay for the one night we had booked.

We have been using this hotel for Many years. It is very rundown and a shadow of the hotel it used to be. Over the years, gradually the deterioration has set in. This will be our last stay. Better service, quality, in leading local hotels. It is a shame as the staff are lovely, try so hard to help but are limited by lack of staff, services, etc.

The hotel is in dire need of refurbishment, it looks tired, dirty and the room 18 I had was appalling the worst maintained hotel I have ever had to stay in.

Comfortable room in somewhat old-fashioned hotel

Customer review rating 3.8/5

Christopher Business - 27/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I enjoyed my stay, in this well-located hotel in central Staines, right on the Thames. The hotel is a little shabby and getting to my room involved lots of stairs and rambling corridors, but the room itself was comfortable and well-equipped, with a great river view. Parking is limited, and the local one-way system makes access awkward. Breakfast was good, and staff were friendly.

Good locating, dated hotel

Anonymous Business - 27/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is in a good location for me as my office is walking distance from it and that's about where it ends. The hotel is probably the best worst hotel in the area. The rooms are all old and a bit musty. Carpets in the halls are tattered and loose. The heat in the rooms sometimes works, sometimes doesn't. I liken my experience to staying at the Fawlty Towers.

Reasonable levels of service, cleanliness etc. Great location for central Staines. 'Standard' rooms all face a busy road which is less than 15m away, and there is a lot of road noise in the road facing rooms. Strongly recommend booking river-facing rooms only at this hotel.

Room 53 was disappointing. Peeling wall paper, poor pressure out of shower head, badly filled holes in wall with plaster, mould on wooden window frames. Generally a depressing room. The staff on the other hand are credit to your dated hotel. I missed breakfast due to early closure but the staff went out the way to make sure I had food as long as I ate in the bar area. All the carpets in the walkways badly stained. Excellent customer service received from the lady on the reception to the staff in the restaurant.

Good hotel, very good food, very good service, fantastic location! Cons - no lift in the hotel and so I ended up staying at the ground floor due to my large suitcases Since there was a party at the hotel, the restaurant was closed and so had to eat dinner in the room. Otherwise, no complaints at all. Will like to stay here again if I get a chance.
