“Excellent location and service”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

Very good value for money, within a short walk to Hale Village with its many good restaurants and small shops. The location is excellent with easy access to Manchester, The Lowry Centre and the Trafford Centre. The Hotel has a lovely warm swimming pool but the hot tub pump was very noisy and could be slightly heard in the room. The breakfast was very good so we had an evening meal on the second night in the restaurant and were not disapointed.All the staff were helpful and polite particularly our waiter Adrian and the Assistant Manager David Harvey.

Have stopped here before when flying from Manchester. Good location can walk into Altrincham and hale with shops and bars. Great deal on parking and staying the night before. Car park safe good spaces and cctv. Taxi transfers included in the price only takes 10 mins and no hassle. Rooms have been updated and are clean and tidy leisure club is nice so take your swimwear. Great value and good start to holiday without the hassle.

Room Tip: room that back onto leisure centre a bit noisy.

Having read some reviews on this hotel prior to our stay I was aware of some guests complaints such as lack of sound proofing.
We were very pleased with the hotel, it was ideal for our visit to catch up with friends all over the Manchester area, including Hale itself. The bar area in the hotel was modern, comfortable and the bar was well stocked for something of it's size. The staff on reception were helpful and our room was small but sufficient. Tea/coffee making facilities, flat screen tv, hairdryer, and very modern bathroom.
Although there were a couple of bits that the cleaning staff had missed when preparign our room it was nothing to cause me too much concern, and I mentioned to the reception staff more as an observation not so much a complaint.
The sound proofing is very apparent particularly when other guests returning late in the night stop and have a conversation outside your door before continuining on down the hall, however if guests are aware of the lack of sound proofing and are conscious not to disturb other guests this would not be so bad.
The leisure club could do with a little TLC but having a swimming pool facility was a bonus for us.
We did not eat in the hotel but I would consider it the next time we stay.

Room Tip: Higher floor will allow you to not be disturbed by the hoovering in the morning of rooms above you.

My wife and I stayed at the Mercure in Feb 2011.We booked through Superbreak and paid £70 for 1 nights accomadation,14 days parking (in the hotels own private car park) and return taxi transfers.This is remarkable value for money when you consider a lot of the off site airport parking companies charge a similar ammount just for parking alone.
The room was a good size with a large flat screen tv.The bathroom was equally spacious with
nice quality toiletries supplied.
We did not dine in the hotel,instead we had a 10 minute walk into Altrincham town centre where there are plenty of bars and restaurants and spent a nice evening at a busy chinese restaurant.
The next morning we had an early start so did not have time for breakfast.Our pre booked taxi transfer arrived on time and the 5 mile journey to the airport took about 10 minutes.
In our opinion this is a good stress free way to start a holiday rather than having to take the car to a car park and get a time consuming minibus transfer to the airport.
Upon return from our holiday we rang the taxi company and were picked up right outside the terminal and returned to our car in less than 20 minutes.
To conclude an excellent deal and we would definitely return for a future stopover.

We were a little concerned upon booking this hotel because we got a cheap deal, however we were pleasantly surprised. Parking was straightforward, as was check-in and check-out.

The room was not the height of luxury, but it was very clean, had nice furnishings and a good bathroom.

We were travelling on to Manchester Airport and were given useful directions when checking-out.

We cannot fault the hotel and we would certainly stay again.
