The hotel was booked for me via work; I arrived late and was swiftly checked in. The layout was a bit confusing and another guest was wandering around looking for his room.
The restaurant was due to close shortly so we were advised to go the restaurant for a meal or order room service.
The room was spacious, clean and had all the facilities required. However, it was disappointing to learn that the shower, over the bath, was very slow and the water did not drain, it was still standing in the morning, so I reported it to reception. The room was also very, very cold and took a while to warm up when I turned the heating up, it would be nice if the hotel did that knowing they had guests booked in!! Especially in January. I ordered room service, the telephone was answered after ringing a few times, and I was told it was busy, however the food arrived in about twenty minutes, a sandwich, and a hot chocolate which was mostly froth, very disappointing in a cold room.
The breakfast room was lovely, spacious and well decorated, with a good selection of food and effiecent service, it was early, and the egg was like rubber so I wondered how long it had been there.

Overall it was a nice, elegant hotel, with a lot of traditional features and helpful staff but the few points raised above would have made it a better experience, in the short time I was there it was disappointing to note these.

The views from the hotel restaurant are just beautiful. There were two Christmas parties at the hotel when we arrived so Reception placed us in the stable block so we were away from the noise. Nice thought, but the room was a disappointment. Very small, in need of updating - not 4 star. From what I could peek, the rooms in the main hotel were much nicer and deserving of their 4 stars. Tip to Mercure: pleeeeease get rid of the purple pillars in the restaurant.

Exceeded my expectation in every way. Food was delicious and very nicely presented. Setting is most definitely one of the best in surrounding areas. Staff are incredible and only too eager to help and that is throughout. Bedrooms could be better but overall this hotel is magnificent and worth a try.

Fantastic place to go, all the staff were lovely! Hear plenty about it and it never let any of us down. Food good. Beds comfy. Walls were sound proof in the room, so my husband and I never disturbed the kids... ;)
