    Room was very noisy (too close to bar & loud noises until 3.A.M. ) Could do with a ramp to bring cases into reception.

    Location near where I was working.

    I felt I was staying in the servants quarters, it was in a remote part of the hotel and was dirty and tatty. Noise of running water all night and breakfast was avaerage. Will not be staying again.

    Bar stayed open for as long as we wanted it

    Hotel quite tatty and in need of refurbishment. Asked for a quiet room but got one close to a plant room (I think) and there was quite a lot of noise. However, we were not disturbed by other guests.

    Stay here every time we visit the North West. Always good value for money. Staff extremely helpful and professional.

    Good

    Excellent buffet breakfast- dinner expensive but good quality - except and unfortunately, the fat used for the deep-fried brie was burnt and this slightly tainted the starter. Breakfast restaurant staff friendly and helpful. French receptionist was very helpful when I booked although her colleague forgot to email map as promised!

    Bar and restaurant staff were scruffily dressed, a waitress shouted out a query I had made and although she was in the kitchen it could be heard throughout the restaurant - fortunately there were few other couples present. Room 61 was noisy - guests coming and going woke us up several times - my Wife had a poor nights' sleep.

    Good

    I have stayed here before and was pleased to see that it has been partially updated. Our room was refurbished and very comfortable. The staff were fine, no-one went overboard to offer good service but they didn't do anything to offend either. The breakfast was really good, well worth the money.

    When we arrived early to drop our bags (which we had advised the hotel at the time of booking) we were not asked our names or allowed to check in (our bags were kept in a secure room). As we didn't return until after midnight I was worried that our room had been given away but fortnately it hadn't. It was a bit off putting arriving back at midnight and all the staff were standing on the front step smoking.

    One of the best things was the location as the hotel was very central for Bowden and easy to find. The general decoration of the hotel was smart and the superior rooms were very tastefully decorated. The breakfast was very good but you do have to pay for it and as there are very few alternative options in Bowden this could be included.

    We paid for a superior room for two people and although we did get a superior style in terms of decoration the room and bathroom was almost half the size of all the other superior rooms we saw. I think there should be some reduction in the price for the difference between a large and small superior.

    Fabulous

    Very welcoming. Room v comfortable and spaciaous, decorated tastefully.

    No real complaints but someone who was less bodily able would have struggled without a life to 2nd floor. Wifi didn't work very well for me either.

    Fabulous

    The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the room was extremely fresh and clean and comfortable.

    Because this hotel is convenient for Manchester Airport, people stay here before their flights early in the morning - in my case, I was woken up between 3am and 3:30am by noisy people organising themselves into taxis for the airport then. If you are staying at this otherwise very good hotel, I'd advise asking for a room that isn't overlooking the hotel entrance.

    Swimming pool and steam room

    Bar area quite small. Restaurant service not that great, especially at breakfast.

    Superb

    hotel and staff ideal for what we needed for visits to LegolandDiscovery at Trafford Centre and Chester Zoo. Service very good. Pool very welcoming, despite requiring a little repairing in a few areas. had a room with Double and single bed and there was ample room. Certainly would stay again for a similar visit. Plenty of parking. Excellent breakfast.

    Tead/coffe splashes on wall above skirting board overlooked by housekeeping staff. Inconsiderate guests in room above who seemed to think jumping and stamping around was the acceptable thing to do at around 4.00am. Hairdryer with the desk in the room, but only mirror some strides away by the door. Would be useful to remedy this with the provision or relocation of the mirror.

    Fabulous

    We stayed as part of a party group, so we were close to the Cinnamon Club. As always with Mercure Hotels we knew that we would enjoy our stay...comfortable bedrooms, plus 1st class breakfast!!

    Sadly, some in our group had trouble with the 56 stairs , and as they were elderly would have preferred to been told that there was no lift. Also no offer of help with their luggage was made, so they certainly would not book again.
