A lack of sleep says it all when commenting on a hotel. Noisy, paper-thin walls/ceilings, lack of information in the rooms - such as leisure facilities. Would have liked to order breakfast in the room but there was no ordering information on the back of the door as the literature stated. Corners cut resulting in lack of customer care won't...

Nice clean hotel. No lift. Fantastic breakfast. Check in desk seemed understaffed as had to que for a long time. No induction to leisure centre or wifi provided at check in and therefore had to walk all the way back and que again! Basic health club. Don't expect anything fancy. It is a basic hotel. Was nice and quiet. Will...

I stayed 2 nights at this pleasant hotel where both the food and the staff were excellent. I found the staff extremely helpful and courteous at all times my only mild criticism was that the ramp to the hotel was not well sign posted and the outer door often locked in the evening Maybe during the refurbishments it could be...

Pleasant environment,, staff and accommodation. Could have been better heated in view of very cold weather, but we did not complain at the time, so they might have rectified this. Also no lift . We should have mentioned this on arrival, but again we did not. On the whole, very good value.

Situated only a 20 minute walk from the centre of Altrincham and a good 10 minute walk from the centre of Hale, this is a reasonable good hotel and sufficient for a one night stop over. The room is clean and warm and have all of the usual requirements of tea & coffee making facilities, the bathroom has a 2/3rds...

Appreciate the time you have taken to write this review and pleased that generally things went well. Would however suggest that Hale is a short 5 minute walk and Altrincham is around 10 minutes away but guess this does depend on how quickly one walks.

Me and my husband stayed here for a night before going to Manchester airport. I was quite surprised at the distance from the hotel to the airport as it is advertised as an airport hotel but it's at least a 15 minute drive away. The staff did provide us with instructions to get to the airport through which was helpful....

Knowing the Mercure brand is part of the Accor group, which provides such consistent standards across other brads such as Novotel and Ibis, I booked this hotel confident that I was going to be staying in a good quality hotel. the reality was therefore somewhat disappointing. My room up on the second floor looked nothing like any of the ones...
