On arrival our first room smelt of cigarette smoke.We went to reception who moved us to a different room. The wash basin would not empty but they sent maintenance to sort it . The a/c wasn’t able to cope so we asked for 2 fans, these also arrived quite quickly

Dee Families - 11/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Was our first time here we booked to stay over as going to a family doo. Originally it was just myself and my husband but one of my boys was run over 2 weeks prior to the stay so i asked if they could fit both my boys on as i didnt want to leave with family as my son needed mums help.. mercure were fab they spoke to the manager and managed to get 2 extra beds on for both my sons at £20 each which i found reasonable. I booked a suite but expected little room and was shocked when walked in . The space was plenty even with the 2 extra beds. Was a quiet night no noise slept well the bed was extremely comfy... breakfast everyone said was good only thing was my partner unhappy with 1 sausage 1 bacon etc lol hes a big bloke :) but he still enjoyed... staff were friendly helpful polite from when we walked in. Only thing i wasnt happy about was not being told we had to book the swimming pool on arrival . We,ll definately be back soon thankyou for a great stay .

We came to celebrate our anniversary and booked a privilege room. Everything was lovely, the staff were welcoming and friendly and when we went for our evening meal the staff in the bar/restaurant were also wonderful. We will definitely stay again.

Anon Business - 08/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Made very welcome by your receptionist, very helpful. Room not so great. Shower control broken, not adjustable, stuck on hot. Bathroom sink did not drain properly. Needed plunging. Bed two singles pushed together, not king size. Coffee making facilities ropey. Expect more than just a kettle and sachets of rubbish instant coffee.

Gill Couples - 05/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The room was like a sweat box. Changed the setting on the air control but didn’t work 27degrees. Reported nothing. No lights in the room very dark. Manager came with a small light !! Breakfast rubbish cheap sausage black pudding so dry and bacon well cooked for ages. Rip off on the price paid. Manager also had no idea of the area. Couldn’t he have done some homework

Jen Business - 03/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I stay in the area at least once a week and recently stayed at Mercure St Helens instead of my usual hotel. Staff on the front desk were very polite and my room was comfortable. My only (very minor) complaint is the gym opening times are a little too late if you are staying at the hotel for business purposes, the Mercure in Haydock opens at 6am which allows me to get in a workout before I leave for the day. Other than that, I would look at returning and would recommend the hotel.

Photos look amazing, bleak on closer inspection.

Booked the Executive Suite, room was marketed as having a king size bed, which was actually two single mattresses pushed together. Very uncomfortable nights sleep.

Daniel A. Couples - 30/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

After a long queue/wait to check in, which I appreciate cannot be avoided, there was then a wait in excess of 5 minutes to take the elevator as only one was functioning and it was extremely slow. After checking in, we dropped our bags off and went straight out to a function. Upon our return in the early hours, we discovered that the air-conditioning didn't work and the room temperature was 26 degrees. A very noisy tower fan was placed in the room instead. This made sleeping very hard and uncomfortable and with several hours driving the next day this was incredibly bothersome. After getting in to bed and attempting to turn the lights off, it was apparent this was either not possible from the bed itself or the one light switch that seemed to do nothing was in fact broken. The breakfast was lovely and the staff helpful but the basics of the building and room were extremely disappointing. We will not stay again

Loud antisocial noise in the hotel overnight preventing sleep
