« Well below Mercure standards »

This is the worst Mercure I have ever stayed in. The general issue was the poor quality of the facilities from the car park to the building itself. Several things didn’t work e.g shower tap, tv remote etc. I was roomed next to a lift shaft from the 60s the noise from this was horrendous, I got very little sleep even after working a 15 hour day. Adding my membership number to my booking seemed like more trouble than it was worth. The hotel in general is in desperate need of refurbishment and is well below the standard I have come to expect from Accor group hotels

I had to cancel my booking but due to the rate I'd booked at was unable to get a refund, which didn't please me. You have my money.

« Bed & Heating »

The room (75) was unbearably hot. I know it's winter but the heating did not need to be on that high. I ended up lying on the bed without sheets. The bed itself is shocking. You can feel every spring and hear every twang when moving - pretty sure I had spring marks imprinted on my shoulder when I finally decided to give up and just get up. Not a good night's sleep.

« Nice hotel »

Everything was really nice, the single bed was bigger than expected, nice bathroom. The only downside, which is probably the most important part of a hotel stay, would be that the pillowcases were a bit dirty.

« Stole my watch »

I left my Smart watch in the room and was told it was not there when I phoned up. Clearly either the housekeeping staff or the receptionist that knew about it have stolen it. I chased constantly for an update and was promised multiple calls back which never came. The sentimental value of this watch was extremely high which made the experience even worse.

« One night business stay »

Suffice to say there is nothing wrong with this hotel except the age of the building and it's decor. Staff were generally very welcoming and attentive. Breakfast was excellent.

« Friendly, comfortable one-night stay. »

Didn't pre-book our one-night stay, but Whately Hall provided an easily accessed and cosy double at a reasonable price when we called. Room service prompt and food tasty. Good breakfast (but just how does a hotel run out of brown bread ?). No charge for our dog.

« Great staff, very noisy location »

Experienced very friendly staff both in reception and in the Bar. I stayed in room 57 and sleep was impossible due to traffic noise from 10.30 till 0400 when it died down slightly. This was mixed with the early morning 'turf outs' from local bars! left the hotel at 0530 as little point in trying to sleep regards
