Poor Value But Great Location

TripAdvisor rating 2.0/5

moley666 Business - TripAdvisor review

Small and shabby rooms. Great location and clean but definitely needs some love as taps hanging off sink and more scuffs than paint. Rooms aren’t in any way soundproof so you can hear everything from the surrounding rooms and they also have no air conditioning and are incredibly stuffy even in the middle of winter.

Poor value for money.

Jonathan H Couples - TripAdvisor review

Excellent reception staff, very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Room very small, tired looking and noisy all night. Bathroom was just about adequate. Communal areas tired looking. Linen clean Hotel smelt of cannabis, which was a little disconcerting. Very poor value for money considering it was in excess of £200 for one night.

Porkiest most old fashioned bedroom

This hotel is in the dark ages. I can’t believe they’re charging me £415 for a two night stay in a box room. The room looks like it hasn’t been touched since the 1960s. This hotel needs a complete overhaul or else removed from the Mercure brand which is normally somewhere I like a lot. Shocked

Anita J. Families - Confirmed reviews ALL

The reception staff at the hotel were excellent and the rooms more than adequate given the price paid. Mine was a single, and very well equipped with tea and coffee making facility, a hair dryer and an ironing board as standard. The decor was a bit tired and the bathroom basic, but it was clean and comfortable.
