Hotel as plentiful parking. We again booked the romatic deal with 3 course meal, glass of prosecco, breakfast, chocies in room and late checkout. Hotel is obviously a franchise. Reception was pleasant but "hole in wall" reception desk very dated. Room was ok although lacked hair drier and bed was "tired". Chocolates were disappointing - no rose petals on bed...

Iv'e used this hotel a few times on buisness trips, and my impression is as follws. Ok rooms allthough somewhat worn and dated. Breakfast is nice with most things you could want. The restaurrant isn't worth wisiting. There can be some traffic noise from the street.

Given a Superior room, dread to think what a Standard room was like. Window frames rotten, one window boarded up, wallpaper hanging from ceiling and Tv didn't work. Bed was quite comfortable though. No lifts either so not good for people with bad mobility or in a wheelchair.

Thanks for the time taken to post this review and pleased you found the hotel to be clean and comfy if a little old but some would say this adds character. I have to agree that Hale is a great village and pleased that you enjoyed visiting

I'm not one to post negative reviews as you can see by clicking my profile but our experience at the Mercure Bowdon was one of the worst we've had in any hotel worldwide. We stayed on Sat 14/01 and to be fair the check in staff were friendly and polite. Our first impressions of the grpund floor room were good...

Thank you for taking the time to post this review and sorry about the disturbed night. Sadly there was in incident which required the police to attend and an arrest made, a most unusual situation and one that I have not experienced in my 20 plus years at the hotel. I am confident future visits will be much quieter.

I intended to book the Premier Inn online through Manchester Airports hotel and car park booking system but after experiencing problems booking I called them and they explained that the premier inn was fully booked and suggested this hotel as it was of an equal standard and price. I wish I had researched it before I booked. The place looked...

Appreciate the time taken to post the review and very sorry to hear that your experience up to the time of the post had not been to your expectations. Clearly the biscuit pack slipped through the system, this was in fact a best by date rather than a use by date and whilst I could find no trace of others...

The hotel is 5 minutes walk from Hale train station, it's pretty easy to follow. The room was clean and tidy but is just a three star hotel. The public areas look a bit shabby. I ate in the bar and the meal came pretty quickly it was average quality, if you want good quality you will need to eat...

Old and pittoresque building ; the room would need sone renovation. The hotel includes a restaurant which offer traditional meals. In the evening, the free parking can be crowded. The main advantage of this hotel is its short distance to the airport.

Thank you for taking the time to post this review, fully accept that the hotel car park can be crowded when the hotel is busy but generally finding a space is not an issue and hope you also found one.
