Spent two nights, Friday and Saturday, at the Mercure hotel for the Exeter carnival and Christmas market. Had an absolutely fantastic time at the hotel, not only is it really well located for the city centre but the staff were so warm and welcoming, making our stay stress and trouble free, everything seemed so effortless. I would definitely recommend it and will be going back! Thanks for a wonderful weekend.

Leisurely trip for Christmas shopping

Lovely stay, great location and amenities. Suzy in the restaurant, who was our waitress at dinner, couldn’t be more helpful and really made us feel at home. Very helpful staff on the front desk as well. Great room, with a wonderful shower. Booked the room for a Christmas shopping weekend with my mother and we both thoroughly enjoyed it.

Noisy and like a crèche

Beautiful building but complete let down, definitely wouldn’t rebook Stayed a Saturday night. Children playing in the reception and corridors. Get back at 11pm from a meal and the reception was full of 13/15 yr olds left to own devices. Had a ground floor adjoining room and could hear the whole conversation of next door and every time they entered as were in and out early hours the door rattled. Mentioned at reception but only alternative was another adjoining room as the hotel is booked out Not the standard expected

Had a two day break at this hotel and thought it’s not quite 4*. The room we had showed sign’s of repairs on walls ,filler but no paint ,and in the bathroom the only place to put a towel was on the floor or stretch above your head to a rail. The staff at breakfast and dinner were great but the menu was on 4A sheet of paper sealed inside a plastic cover, like a cafe, and the same everyday. The writing so small it was hard to read even with glasses. This could be a nice 4* but some thought needed

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a great review of your recent stay with us. I am really grateful for your comments and feedback, I will pass these on to the Maintenance and Food & Beverage team so that we can look at improving these. I hope to welcome you back again in the future. Kind Regards Barnaby Kean General Manager
