« Hotel seems very tired and breakfast disorganised »

Loved Winchester —hotel OK but Room tatty and had an overwhelming smell of air freshener Breakfast adequate but some things had run out and nothing looked particularly appetising

« Somewhere to stay but nothing special. »

I stay in WInchester area regularly and have used the Mercury on many occasions. Staying there serves a purpose and it is very handy to town centre, however if I can get a good deal in an other hotel I select them first.

« Hot and tired »

shabby decor in room - pellet hanging off, badly fraying lampshade over bed, dust on bathroom door and paintwork in need of freshening up. Too hot, no ventilation, no fan or air conditioning - and not even a bottle of water provided to take into account t the heat. Still awaiting invoice/receipt by email so I can claim on expenses.

« Wonderfully situated, but a very tired hotel which does not come up to my expectations of the Accor group »

I booked the hotel directly over the phone several months ago. As we were part of the organising team for a concert at the cathedral on 9th June. I then 'booked' a meal for six people a couple of weeks ago in the restaurant after the concert a 9.30, only to be told just a few hours beforehand that for health and safety reasons they have to turn off the gas at 10.00 and they could not guarantee a hot meal! If that was the case (and it seems a terrible admission for a hotel) then my booking should not have been accepted. It was very embarrassing and we ended up having to make scurried enquiries of restaurants we did not know in Winchester, The majority were full and we ended up having to go to Brasserie Blanc. Two of the party had limited mobility (blue badge holders) and it was very difficult for them. I responded to your offer of an upgrade before I arrived but I have no knowledge of whether I got one or not. Nothing was said by the reception staff. The room was poor. Only made up for one when booked for two. I had explained that we were two ladies sharing a room, not a couple, but nevertheless the beds were joined together and were put back together on each of the following days. The towels were very small. One bedside did not work. The room as dusty and not properly vacuumed. The mastic around the windows and bath was peeling away and dirty. The toilet was brown - we felt we had to boil a kettle to ensure it was hygienic. There were only four hangers. The TV remote did not work and we had difficulty communicating to the chamber maid that it need ne batteries The breakfast was good (although they ran out of brown bread on Monday), if greasy. But the carpet in the room was dangerous, gaffered together in parts. As indicated above, communication was very difficult. The level of English mastered by the reception staff was not up to what I would have expected from an international group. All in all very disappointing experience. I hope my stay in the Ibis in Vienna in the first week in July is better.

« Overnight stay in Winchester »

Very good stay in Mercure Winchester. Hotel is very central with access to the main shops and Winchester Cathedral only a 2 minute walk away. The hotel has a very 70's feel to it and is showing its age a bit. Our room was very comfortable albeit a bit smaller than we would have expected for a double

« Excellent location, nice rooms, friendly staff »

Lovely view of cathedral from my room. Comfy bed. Decent shower. Room was a little “tired” but clean with a fridge, tea and coffee etc Staff very nice and accommodated my request for a quiet room.

« Disappointing »

The pillows were so uncomfortable we hardly slept, so we had to go and buy pillows for our 2nd night. There was no butter available for breakfast on the first morning,

« Very good with nice friendly service »

The hotel is in a great location very close to the town centre and the Cathedral which is a big plus. We did not stay to eat in the hotel but the range of food on offer seem to be quite good. The hotel itself is really showing its age and is very dated in its look and feel. Our room was very small with what must have been a 3 quarter bed rather than a double. However as it was for only one night then not so much of an issue

« City centre hotel »

Comfy room overlooking Cathedral above car park, a little tatty with small worn sofa and carpet wearing out but the 4 poster bed was supremely comfortable with good quality bed linen. Breakfast on the first morning was confusing, we arrived at 8-45 to dried up fried eggs, but ordered poached eggs from the menu. At 9-10 the staff turned the lights off and started clearing away but then several other people arrived and they had to put them all back, twice that happened! Breakfast should be available until 10-00am. Second morning no menus on the table but the eggs looked fresher. Parking was expensive at £12 per day seemed to be several casual parkers, some form of id should be left in car and the spaces are narrow for modern cars. Although beyond your control a group of drunken swearing vagrants were below our room and causing a fracas-not nice to have to run this gauntlet each time you entered or negotiated the footpath backing onto the cathedral.

« Great location! »

This is a great location! Nearby shopping, coffee and lots of pubs! Breakfast was fulling and the lounge was relaxing. Views of the cathedral were a great surprise. I would return to this location again.

« Disappointing »

My wife and I stayed at the Mercure Wessex for one night on May 29th. The Hotel is in a very good location and offers great promise. However it is clear to us that it is now very tired and in need of a refit. Our bedroom was not in very good condition, the bedding was poor and everything looked pretty worn out. The staff were obliging if a little brusque and none of them seemed happy in their work

« Great location. »

Professional run hotel. Smart reception staff. Nice size room. Fridge was a bonus. Only downside was lack of air conditioning in the rooms. Location was next to the cathedral which was lovely. Parking was a little awkward with layout but not offputting.

« Pleasant, but not as good as it used to be »

The staff were as pleasant and helpful as usual, but the overall experience was marred by economy measures and the tired hotel furnishings

Julia Families - 05/06/2018

Very enjoyable, lovely rooms, and very nice staff service. Only drawbacks were the lack of air conditioning (a fan was provided but was a little noisy at night) and the lack of a fan/ventilation in the bathroom.

« Pleasant »

Room disappointing as we were put into a disabled room for some reason, had to bend down to use sink and the large door opened out and kept hitting myself or my husband. Breakfast was good even though there were only a couple of staff on and they were rushed off of their feet.
