We would like to thank Debs and Anthony for an excellent stay at the Mercury. The hotel is brilliant for any music fan and the hosts are fun and friendly. The location is very central so you are well located for everything. We would definitely stay here again

Anthony and Deb's who run the Mercury could not have been more friendly or helpful on our stay there. Rooms are clean and tidy with interesting themes, only one Street back from the sea with fascinating rock memorabilia around the house. It's a definite again for me.

Had a pleasant weekend, nice room, good breakfast and very friendly owners. The only concern we had in room 1 was a bloody cold bathroom, a heated towel rail would help. All in all very good Oh and don't forget the smashing dogs, they sound worse than what they are !

Thank you for the review. We are pleased that you had a pleasant weekend and hope the fact that your wife was ill didn’t spoil things too much. It is difficult for us to address a “concern” retrospectively; however we will monitor this during the next extreme cold spell - Anthony & Debs.

Spent 4th and 5th of January 2017 at this great hotel, after a hectic xmas we needed somewhere to relax and what a perfect place. Anthony and Deborah are the perfect hosts at this Rock/music themed hotel. This is about the 6th time we've stayed here and we shall be returning later on in the year.
