Good Location We required room service for food as we were late returning back to our room on Saturday evening but was told it was unavailable as the kitchens had closed. Perhaps a little more help of where we could get a takeaway or something similar would of been greatly appreciated after spending a lot of money on a superior room for 1 night. Very disappointed with this from a Mercure Hotel.

Very happy, clean and comfortable. But paid a premium for a riverside view and couldn’t see anything as tress completely obscured the view.

City stayover

Pros: Good location
Cons: Needs refurbishing
Location: Plenty of good eating places, bars, museum, cathedral, all within walking distance.
The hotel in general is tired and needs refurbishment. The location is good however as you can walk to restaurants, bars and shops.

Fire alarm

The fire alarms went off throughout the building at 10am Sunday morning and I jumped out of bed and ran down the staircases from the 6th floor in a panic!... only to find staff and a couple of other visitors meandering about leisurely and seemingly taking no notice! No explanations or instructions were given. I couldn't help wondering if this is how The Mercure ensures all visitors are up and ready for check out at noon..? Mx

central to the city opposite the canal

stayed for 2 nights, clean and tidy hotel, I usually aim for this as it is central to where I need to be. Parking is at the NCP but the hotel give a 25% discount there.

Hotel in a great location

Pros: Breakfast served until Midday on a Sunday
Cons: Level of customer service to front desk staff when expectations are not met!
Being woken up on a Sunday morning at 8am to the sound of a dog barking in the corridor/room in close proximity to ours was not great. The reaction of Staff to this comment on check out was even less impressive. Not even an apoligy!
