« A Perfect Retreat »

A lovely hotel in the middle of the High Street in Oxford, opposite some of the loveliest Colleges making up one of the greatest educational structures the world has ever seen. Inside the Mercure is a wonderful friendly team to look after all of your known needs and also some that you didn’t even know you wanted. Lovely rooms, great food and an atmosphere of Christmas all year round. What a wonderful place to relax, study and have fun. Well done Mercure!

« Helpful staff »

Useful room change when staff realised that we’d requested a high ceiling due to husband’s height. Very charming welcome and arrangement. Lovely room. Very clean. The only area that was slightly disappointing was again the breakfast. Great choice but quality of cooking not as good as you’d expect at this level- e.g. under-poached eggs, still with vinegar tang, and hard, over- baked bacon.

« Very noisy room, not particularly clean in communal areas »

My bedroom was pointing out of the front and the Street was EXTREMELY noisy, every time I fell asleep I Got woken up by noise. Upon inspection there is a broken drain cover out the front which makes a lot of noise when stood on. Also bin lorries were in operation for over an hour at 6am - a complete nightmare!!

« Uninspiring »

Pleasant enough room. Reception staff obliging. Restaurant staff surly, indifferent.

« Enjoyable stay at a city centre hotel with character and comfort. »

Reading others comments on the website for the Mercure Eastgate Hotel, we knew we would either love it or hate it. Pleased to say that it was a most enjoyable 3 days stay. The room (212) was on the small side but very clean, the bathroom was large and very modern. The staff were very friendly and helpful and parking was a bonus, even if somewhat expensive. We would recommend to friends and would stay there again.

« As always, we were very happy with our stay. »

We love the convenient location, the comfortable rooms, the kind and friendly staff. Always a real pleasure.

« A well-located, cosy hotel that is handy to Oxford colleges and other sights. »

This was my second time in the hotel, and I liked it as well as the first--the room was comfortable, with a nice view and the breakfast was good. The only thing that is not great (and that seemed to have changed from four years ago), was the staff--they were barely friendly at the desk and the guy in the lobby bar was not too nice either--and I was forced to listen to him complain loudly and at length to some friends about how he hadn't been wonder, and his unprofessional tirade seemed to confirm that had been the right decision, but it sort of marred the enjoyment of my drink. And hopefully by the next time I come, you'll have found a formula for your restaurant that works....outside of breakfast it seemed pretty sad.

« Really poor experience »

The service was the only good point honestly because the rest was really shocking !!! The room was not clean nor were the sheets !! We are really frequent travellers and it hasn’t happen in years that we felt we had to keep our clothes on !!! It was worst that a Premier Inn

« A really enjoyable family weekend »

All eight of us enjoyed our brief stay at the Eastgate very much indeed. The rooms were most comfortable, the food was very good and the staff entirely polite and friendly. Some of our arrangements needed discussing in advance, particularly re the restaurant, and the staff were very understanding and helpful.

« Good on the whole. People on the desk were good and very kind. Maid didn't replace bathrobe (after three days), despite being asked to do so with good tip. »

1. I don't see why you can't install an elevator up to the top floor: the building isn't all that historic, is it? 2. Charging guests for parking is cynical and exploitative.

« Pleasant helpful staff, comfortable room, some refurbishment needed. »

A well located hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable. The USB charging sockets and LED bed lights were a good touch. The shower was very good. The bathroom window could be replaced with a double glazed unit. On a cold day lots of heat escaped.

« Talk to your reception staff. »

I was promised feedback from you following discussion with the reception staff on Sunday morning. Since you ask, there were a number of features in the room that didn't work or were broken or nearly broken. The room was small and only accessible by a narrow twisted staircase. Charging over £300 for that raised expectations that were seriously not fulfilled. There were a large number of apparently school age students around in the morning. This does not appear to be in line with your published policy about under 18s. The fire alarm went off at 6.58 in the morning - remarkably like a wake-up call for them. We were grateful for a little bit of sympathy from the staff but this being our second visit to a Mercure hotel (which was also unsatisfactory) we see no reason at the moment to take a chance on another Mercure hotel. People we know will be asking about our experience, so that's not likely to help you much either. Sending a request to fill in this questionnaire with no feedback on our comments is therefore not well received either.
