Negative Reviews

Poor insulation

Some guests complain of what they perceive to be poor insulation at the hotel, resulting in noise penetrating from the outside This noise can be disruptive to sleep, so bear this in mind when booking and perhaps inquire as to what the quietest part of the location may be.

Room dated

Some guests feel that the guest rooms were starting to get dated Curtains and some furniture show noticeable signs of wear and tear.

Walkway not sheltered enough

Guests at Mercure Dunkenhalgh Blackburn indicate that the walkway between the main hotel and the location’s executive rooms is not properly sheltered During inclement weather, the walkway is at least partially exposed to wind and rain You may not enjoy your walks between the main hotel and your guest room depending on the time of year and the randomness of weather patterns.
