“Excellent Stay”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

We have just returned from a two night All Inclusive break at the Oaks. Arrived on Sunday and was checked in by Dimitrius. A welcoming prompt and professional check in. We had room 507 which was well presented and serviced to a good standard throughout our stay. Thanks housekeeping. All the food was well cooked and presented. The drink was free flowing. A big thanks to Kay Natasha Melissa and Sandra for making our stay so good. If you do another All Inclusive we will be back. Superb value for money. Thanks

I stayed at this hotel recently for a night as we were going to Robin Park as it was the closest hotel I could find. When I checked in and out it couldn't have been any smoother or straightforward. The staff at reception were friendly and welcoming. My room was nice, clean and tidy and I got a good nights sleep. In the morning there was a bit of road noise caused by and ambulance or some kind of emergency vehicle but that is not the hotels fault. We had a bar snack when we arrived of pizza and a toasted sandwich which was nice and tasty. In the morning our stay included breakfast and that too was good, and set us up for the rest of the day. Breakfast was a buffet there were only scrambled eggs on show but we were fine with this. Tesco is right next door and the kids went there and topped up on snacks for the evening and it is 24 hours so if you need anything else this is only a couple of minutes away across the road from the hotel. There is a nice bar area which had a nice quiet atmosphere. Many people were eating in the restaurant and people were in the bar for a few drinks. I am due to return to Wigan next year and will certainly book this hotel again.

Stayed here for one night . Hotel location is good. Front counter is very friendly . Was shown to one room, hallway was very dark and smelt of cigarette which I'm very sensitive too as I suffer from asthma . They changed our room ,and we were given a really spacious clean room with king bed . Overall I would stay here again .

Thank you for your review and was pleased to read that, overall, you enjoyed your stay with us. Your comments regarding the smell of cigarette smoke on the corridor was of great concern. I have spoken to my Head Housekeeper regarding this, as we are a non-smoking hotel and we have introduced new methods to prevent this policy from being abused.
I was pleased to read your kind comments regarding the bedroom and, in particular, that you would stay with us again. I hope we get the opportunity to welcome you back soon.

We stayed at the Mercure Wigan Oak Hotel for one night and found our stay rather disappointing. On arrival the car park was full of vans so parking was tight. Reception was okay and the staff were helpful. The bar area lacks character and warmth. Food prices are pretty steep for what they are and drinks are quite pricey, wines being particularly expensive. Our room was quite spacious but the lighting in the bathroom was poor. We also found a pair of socks left by the previous guest and a large screw on the carpet. House keeping had failed to do their job thoroughly. Our sleep quality was average, as other guests have commented; there is a busy room along side and a hospital nearby so expect sirens during the night. I don’t think we will be returning.

Thank you for your feedback on our hotel. I was sorry to read that you were not completely satisfied with your stay. We do try to keep our drinks prices in line with competitor hotels, but obviously cannot compete with bars and social clubs.
I do apologise for the problems you encountered in the bedroom and have spoken to my Head Housekeeper regarding this, as this is certainly not to our usual standards. With regards to your comments about external noise, we receive very few adverse comments regarding this as the nearby road quietens around 9.00pm and I am sure you can appreciate that we cannot be accountable for any noise from the surrounding area - the hospital you mentioned is actually situated more than a mile from the hotel.
I do hope that you will choose to stay with us again in the future and would be happy to personally ensure that this was as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

I stayed a couple of nights at Mercure Oak while in Wigan on a training course as it was the closest hotel to where the course was taking place. Check in and out was smooth and straightforward, and the staff were friendly and welcoming. My room was warm, clean and tidy and I was able to get a good nights sleep. There is a bit of road noise if you are in a room at the front of the hotel but it isn't too intrusive and dies off around 10pm. Food in the restaurant was very good indeed, with plenty of choice on the menu, and Franco is a great host. Breakfast too was very good, enough to really set you up for the day. Just one thing to note - although the breakfast is a buffet there are only scrambled eggs on offer. Poached or fried eggs are made to order (it means they are fresh and not dried up from sitting under a heat lamp) but I only found out about this when I overheard another guest asking. Perhaps a small notice is needed at the breakfast bar? If you need anything else while you are here the town centre is only a couple of minutes away and there is a huge 24hr supermarket directly across the road from the hotel. For those who like a walk or a run there is a riverside path along the side of the supermarket which goes right up into the countryside. My colleague said the hotel doesn't have much atmosphere but this really isn't a problem as we were on business, not a holiday, and the restaurant and bar are both fine for a quiet meal or a few drinks. Would I stay here again? Absolutely.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper ask for a room away from the road

We had to move into a hotel as our house is being gutted so we stayed here for 4 nights, the room was nice, the staff where friendly and a special mention to the housekeeping team as I forgot to pack my electric toothbrush but they put it to one side for me, would recommend this hotel to anyone.
