“Nice stay”
Reviewed 7 August 2012

We had a very nice stay at Mercure Bristol Leukerbad. Their pools were excellent and really value for money. We did not buy breakfast because we felt is was too expensive and our kids does not eat much. But the pools were used and we also slept very good in the beds.

Reception staff was very friendly and helpful. The room given to us was without balcony (we had a cheaper arrangement from booking.com), small, but very clean. The bathroom redone very nicely. The bathroom robe was very much appreciated in going to the pools, also the bag with the two towels, in case one wished to go to the Burgerbaths nearby. The heated outdoor pool was indeed very pleasant and one did not have to go to the Burgerbad (which is mostly overcrowded) to enjoy the special waters of Leukerbad. Breakfast should have had more hot beverages (they only had sausages and scrambled eggs each day), but was rich enough as a Continental Breakfast.
Internet next to the reception did not work properly, next time I will take my own laptop again.
All in all, the hotel was pleasant, but three stars would probably better fit it, as it was rather average.

Stayed for three nights in late February 2012. Was in Leukerbad back in 2004 and stayed at the same hotel. Hotel over all has not changed that much but there has been some improvements. Check-in was a breeze, front end staff was very friendly despite not having a good command of English. We were given a room on the first floor which was right above the lounge area. One could hear the musician/piano player. We asked for our room to be changed and they did so without fuss. Had room 412 which has balcony and overlooks the pool area. Very pleasant room. Clean and tidy but bed was too soft and there was mold on one corner of the wall. Indoor pool area was completely renovated and looked much nicer now. Outdoor heated pools were a pleasure, temperature very comfortable. Indoor pool had a some nice water jets for muscle massage. Sauna was large enough to accommodate a bunch of people and hot enough. Steam room was not. Not very nice, was too cold in my opinion. We had a package deal that included massage. Massage therapist was very friendly but did not speak a word of English. Breakfast buffet was included in price. Overall, a decent selection of choices hot and cold. Coffee machine was loud and the coffee was very weak. Not good! LOL. Hotel was generally quiet and a relaxing escape. We decided to come back because the Bristol is one of the few hotels that offers its own pools. One can stay at some nice places in Leukerbad but one would have to go to the burgerbad if one wanted the baths. The burgerbad looked insanely packed and noisy. Not a quiet experience. Having the pools at hotel afford one to have a nice, relaxing, experience. They should get firmer beds though. Over all, a nice trip. I'd come back again.

I am writing while still in the hotel. For the service they offer I would give them two starts maximum.
1. Broken tv remote taped with schoch tape
2. Broken main door handle, came out when closing the door
3. Toilet with dark remains on the bottom of it
4. One is ordering dinner untill 6pm so they know up front what you want to have for dinner. Waiting for the main dish 30 minutes and for the desert (icecream) 45minutes, ordered watter waited for 20 minutes. 5 waiters 15 tables, everyone were waiting loong time for their orders
5. No complimentary drinks as stated on the web site when booking
6. Selling intenet access 3 times more expensive then the same internet provider on the same hotspot, not giving you all the details that you have one hour free access
7. Not friendly staff.
8.BOOKED ROOM FOR TWO ADOULTS PLUS ONE CHILD, PAYING FOR THAT AND ON TOP OF EVERYTHING I HAVE TO PAY FOR KIDS FOOD SEPARATELY!!!!!
The only good point is that this hotel has its own thermal pool, everything else sucks and it is far worst than any 2 or 3* hotel I have ever been to, not to menion 4 stars!!!

No surprises with this hotel: fairly good service, clean but small rooms. We didn't use their wellness center, which was included in the price; and therefore felt that the price was a little exaggerated for what basically was an overnight stay. We were told at the reception that Internet connection was not included in the price, although we could purchase it for 15 francs or use their computer by the reception. Upon arriving in our room and trying to connect to the Internet, we found out that the hotel offered 60 min of free internet connection (something that was not mentioned to us at the reception). We had another free 60 min the next morning. Two other points: 1) hotel outdoor parking is 8chf, garage parking is 15 chf; and 2) I would not recommend dining at the hotel, despite an excellent service.
