Anniversary celebration

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

juliegN8279OA Couples - TripAdvisor review

This visit was to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We had a wonderful time and this was made even more special by the hotel staff. Every member of staff offered excellent customer service- going the extra mile. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Would definitely stay again.

Great experience

Portlander1209 TripAdvisor review

We stayed at the Mercure on 13th August, from our very welcome coffee on arrival to our departure everything was excellent. The staff carried out all their duties efficiently and with an added smile. Despite having two functions on that evening the quality of food and service was exemplary, you should be proud of them all. Our room in the main building was also excellent, with a great bathroom. To round it off our breakfast was devine.

Nice hotel, excellent staff with good location

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

stephenhA9900OO TripAdvisor review

This is a 4 star hotel in nice, quiet grounds but easily accessed from the M65 . Service was good and the staff excellent. I would specially pick out Olivia (or Wednesday as she is sometimes known). Food and drink was good. There was a few maintenance issues but overall our room was good and spacious. The staff did particularly well in dealing with a problem family who seemed intent on causing problems and expecting to get away with packing their room with non-paying guests. I would visit again.

Another FANTASTIC stay

Katie S Families - TripAdvisor review

Having stayed here before, we knew what to expect with our stay and are familiar with the impressive building and the friendly, accommodating nature of the staff. This visit was no different. The family room booked felt wasted as we use the hotel as a base of operations when visiting family in the area and it was bigger and more luxurious than when we stayed last year. Immaculately clean and refreshed on our second day too. Amy on Reception went above and beyond for our daughter and was a true delight to chat to. We mentioned that last year our daughter had received an activity pack in the room and we wondered whether there were any spare that we could enjoy. Amy said that unfortunately it was a trial with the activity packs and they weren’t available, but that if we returned after our dinner, she would see what she could find. Upon our return, Amy had kindly found and printed off a Treasure Hunt which asked interesting questions about facts about the hotel and a little history too. She had also found a small window decoration for her to paint. So thoughtful and kind. We were then walking around the grounds seeking the answers to the Treasure Hunt and Amy kindly showed us the Portrait Room and gave us a little history about the building and the families that have owned it. The following day our daughter returned her completed Treasure Hunt to Amy who in return, gave her a colouring book. Such a lovely token and we were very grateful. Amy is a true credit to the hotel and an absolute ray of sunshine. One of the members of the food and beverage team that we remembered from our last stay was Sara, who is very friendly and always takes the time to talk to each and every guest and gives professional, yet personal service. She kindly recommended a few local national parks which are worth a visit. She was working both evenings of our stay with James, who was also welcoming and remembered our order from the evening before. A delightful duo and again, just so friendly! A final mention to the lovely team in the leisure centre. We enjoyed a swim on both mornings and on the second morning, our Nan thought she had lost her purse in the changing rooms. They were so kind to her and went out of their way to help her. She ended up finding the purse “somewhere safe” in her bedroom and felt quite silly, but we were very thankful for the team for taking the time to assist her. Thank you to all the team; it has been yet another fantastic stay and we look forward to our next visit. Best, Katie, Pete and Gracie

ClareMaggieP Couples - TripAdvisor review

We just had a night at this hotel. The hotel itself is lovely to look at, it coped well with the very warm weather, the pool was lovely! We appreciated how friendly the staff were on arrival, the selected us as “guest of the day” which meant we got a few extras! This was so lovely and made us feel well looked after! We hope to return to this hotel in the future! Thanks
