Stayed here one night last week as part of a short motoring tour around the Three Counties. We chose the Mercure as we didn’t want a city centre hotel (it’s located in a grand old mansion in the nearby countryside). As the booking was via a Groupon voucher, we weren’t expecting anything special, but we received the warmest possible welcome and a free upgrade to a Superior room, which was enormous with incredible views over the surrounding countryside. The Covid precautions were well thought out – for example, we had to order our cooked breakfast (Eggs Benedict – yum!) and book a time slot the night before – and we felt safe. The room was very comfortable and clean, with a massive bed, crisp sheets and a spotless bathroom which looked brand new. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a quiet, restful stay in this part of the country.
