The Mercure Swansea is located in a business park not far from the city centre of Swansea. It is a fairly typical chain hotel with a large car park and plenty of grassy areas all around. Here are the main points:
I was part of a group and they seemed to be well organised and everyone got their key cards quickly. Reception staff were always friendly and helpful when approached.
A reasonable size standard twin hotel room with a tv, hair dryer and tea/coffee making facilities. The room was very warm on entry and we discovered that someone had left the heater on, thankfully you can open the windows in this hotel. The bathroom was a reasonable size and nicely furnished. The shower over the bath was easy to use and quite powerful. The bed was very comfortable and I slept well. The room was clean. My only complaint would be that the floorboards along the corridors on the second floor are very squeaky and also in the room the floorboards were squeaky. Others have also mentioned this and they do need to give it some attention.
We ate in the restaurant on the first night as it was part of a deal and were offered a limited menu with three starters, three main courses and three desserts. Staff were friendly and attentive. The food was ok but my goujons of plaice were finger sized and looked like they were straight out of a packet. We ate out the second night. Breakfast is self service and offers a good choice of hot and cold food, all the basics you would expect are there. Staff serve you tea and coffee at the table.
They also have a small health centre with a small pool, maximum twelve people at any one time. There is a small bar and lounge area adjacent to reception.
Reasonable rooms and comfy beds.
Staff seem friendly and attentive.
Restaurant food could be better but that is based on one meal only.
They need to do something about the squeaky floorboards.
I would be happy enough to stay here again, it is fine, average without being amazing.
If it was possible I would probably rate it at 3.5 but Trip Advisor do not have such a score option
