« Generally OK with a few nagging points »

This hotel is very well located for the centre of Banbury and is it's main selling point. The rooms are clean if a little tired. In fact the whole hotel is a little tired. One very small point, as a member of the Accor club I get a welcome drink on arrival. In all the other hotels in this group, including Ibis which is mean't to be a lower quality, you get offered a choice of drinks and a choice of wines. At this hotel you only get offered the quite ropey house white or red which kind of puts a dampener on offering a welcome drink at all. Perhaps they need to rethink this one.

« Mid week visit »

We stayed in this hotel while visiting family in Banbury. From the outside the hotel looks very nice and indeed when entering the hotel this appearance continues. Unfortunately however that is where it ends. The further you go into the hotel the poorer the decor becomes. Dirty and shabby carpets, cobwebs all over the corridors and also in the bedrooms. The hotel is in need of a "Deep Clean". Apart from this we had a good stay, the bedroom was comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. The staff were all very friendly and polite at all times.

whately, General Manager at Mercure Banbury Whately Hall Hotel, responded to this review

Dear Austin B, Thank you very much for your comments, whilst I am pleased to read how good the staff were and how much you enjoyed your breakfast I am , of course, disappointed to read that you found cobwebs and thought some areas dirty. I appreciate that some carpets are in need of replacing but are regularly cleaned by a professional company. I will most certainly speak to our housekeeping team to pay more attention regarding cobwebs though. Once again many thanks for you review. Kind Regards Michael Williams General Manager

« Hotel in need of refurb and noisy church bells »

Having just returned from a long weekend at Banbury. I will not be returning or recommending due to the fact that the church bells of the nearby church ring every 15 minutes until 3am in the morning which resulted in a very disturbed sleep. We were supposed to have a quiet room but the noise from the bells could be clearly heard even with the windows shut. Hotel responded that this was a local tradition and there was nothing they could do!. If this had been mentioned on website we would never have booked a stay there. Book at your peril

whately, General Manager at Mercure Banbury Whately Hall Hotel, responded to this review

Dear Guest, Thank you for posting your comments regarding your stay with us and again I am truly sorry for the disturbance caused by the Church bells, and as below and in my correspondence with yourself the chiming of the bells is completely out of our hands and they do actually chime every 15 minutes all day and night. Once again my most sincere apologies. Kind Regards Michael Williams General Manager
