Reservations staff at The Mercer Collection know every room & building inside out so can offer you the best advice on which room to opt for. We can also talk through specific requests i.e. if you require a low floor, prefer a walk-in shower, want to make sure your room doesn't have a sloped ceiling or any number of other requests!

Please note - rooms are given extra housekeeping attention on departure to ensure guests with allergies are not affected by our acceptance of dogs. 

Car Parking:

Parking is a mix of on and off road all free of charge in a quiet residential road. Off road parking is not reservable. We advise parking in the road bays around the hotel and collecting a permit on arrival free from reception. 

The Garden Restaurant:

We advise an advance booking for lunch/dinner tables due to how popular the restaurant is. Advance breakfast bookings are not required for hotel guests. (Closed for winter & reopening March 2022)
