I would expect better of a Mercure hotel in this price range. Room service trays had not been cleared away from the previous evening / morning (this at 15:30 and on all floors). And not just the odd one or two. Wine stain on wall...More

Hi, I have been looking at the prices on a search site for hotels that this wont let me type and I don't understand why their is such a massive difference in price if you add breakfast or not i.e on the 24-27th of October if you do free cancellation or not with breakfast it is between 71-72 cheaper to not add breakfast but then goes on to say you can have breakfast added for just £10...This is utterly ridiculous and suggesting that breakfast costs up to £72?.. Is this an issue on booking I am not sure as your company clearly liases with them in regards to your prices. Can this be looked into as I am sure this is what you will see for all other months too Fortunately I am a member with accor where it is better value but most noticeably you don't get the 70+ price difference when you add breakfast included or not Regards Claire
