Positive Reviews

Park and Fly...

Guests often book Park and Fly packages with the Mercure Altrincham Bowdon, as it offers a large car park and is only 5 miles from the Airport. Most guests find that the taxis arrive in a timely fashion, and find that the reception staff is alert and friendly whether they are checking in after a very late flight or checking out for a very early one. Many comment that the packages represent very good value for the money.

Very fit for the fit...

Guests who like to exercise while travelling appreciate the Leisure Club on site, which offers reasonably new models of all the basic equipment, as well as a nicely maintained indoor pool, sauna, and steam room.

Good bed and breakfast...

Most guests find the rooms are clean, with simple, traditional decor and comfortable beds. The breakfast buffet gets generally positive reviews, as do the cheerful, attentive wait staff. Several guests also note that Hale is only a 5-minute walk, and offers plenty of nice dining and shopping options.

Negative Reviews

Still waiting for a lift...

Built in 1920, the hotel has four floors and no lift. Many guests comment on the unpleasant business of lugging suitcases up the stairs. Though the hotel does have a ramp at the front entrance, a few disabled parking spots, and a limited number of accessible rooms on the ground floor, several guests with mobility concerns found the hotel a bit difficult to navigate.

Hot summer nights...

The hotel is not air-conditioned, and several guests reported a restless night due to the room temperature. A few others had concerns with water temperature.

Not aging gracefully...

Several guests noted items such as worn carpets, peeling wallpaper, or chipped tiles in the bathrooms. Others had unfortunate housekeeping oversights to report.
