We met family staying overnight at the hotel for a meal in the restaurant. Despite pre-booking we were shown to our table and told there would be a delay as chef was busy. The menu choice was very ordinary indeed, lots of burgers, not what you might expect in a hotel! 70 minutes

Dear Escape700195, Please accept our most sincere apologies for the poor experience you had on Tuesday night. The delays were caused by a number of circumstances chef of which was that our main chef was not able to work that night at short notice, and this left an inexperienced team in the kitchen and to compound matter the team running out front did not manage bookings well resulting in us seating 56 of the 72 dinners we did that night down in a 30 period. The inexperienced kitchen team simply could not cope with the volume of orders that came through in a short period, and should have shouted for help rather than try and muddle through. The presence of a small piece of clear plastic in your food is equally totally unacceptable and most concerning to us and a full investigation has now taken place to ascertain how this could have occurred, and to put measures in place so as to ensure it will not re occur. Please be assured that incidents like this are extremely rare, and our restaurant is normally very well run, with food delivered on time to a high standard. I can only apologies again at this late stage, and if you could contact myself or Karen Evans (Hotel Operations Manager) we would like to be able to do something for you to help restore your faith in the hotel after this poor experience. Best Regards Ian

We had originally booked an Airbnb but the place was disgusting so we booked into the Mercury very last minute and it was excellent! The rooms were comfortable, clean and modern and breakfast was delicious. The staff were very helpful on check-in and found us adjoining rooms

Dear 827sarahm, Thank you for your kind review, and great to know we were able to help you out in a sticky situation. All hotels are graded by the AA, tourist boards and when part of a brand we are also inspected by the brand owners too, so as to ensure that we are clean, safe and meet the basic standards required. No Airbnb has to undergo any such checks, so though there are I'm sure good ones out there, you never can be quite sure what you are going to get, and indeed how clean and safe it is. I shall pass on your comments with regard to bathrooms to our property department, we are constantly analysing what needs to be done next, and there are some bathrooms that though still functional could do with a refresh. Best regards, and many thanks once again for your feedback. Ian H Jones

We chose this hotel due to its location and proximity to Swansea and the National Showcaves Centre, and the fact that it has an indoor swimming pool. The staff made us feel very welcome upon our arrival and we're very happy to help upon request. The hotel has a pleasant

Dear adam6210e, Thank you for taking the time to feedback to us on your recent stay, and great to hear that overall you enjoyed. Also I think your Good, and Bad bullet point format is most useful to me and the team, and to other prospective guests. On the bad points we do have an evening lighting setting, and candles that should be lit in the evening, and i have noticed 2 or 3 times lately that they are not always setting the scene correctly, so will re visit that. We will also be refurbishing the gym shortly, which will involve replacing some machines and re carpeting the workout area. Thanks once again for your review, it is only with such honest feedback that we can endeavor to improve. Best Regards Ian H Jones

I think the bar closes with the last resident. Although I can’t be sure. The drinks are all reasonable, but hotel prices.
