The service could have been slightly improved however, the room we chose had a nice double spa bath.

We arrived at the Mercure late after our reception, walked into our room to find a lovely wedding card and a bottle of bubbly to congratulate us. The room was amazing and so comfortable. The breakfast the next day was really nice. A nice quite place to stay.
