Mercure Livingston Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Loads of free parking outside, very pleasant reception/bar area and rooms are nice, though maybe looking a little bit dated. The staff were very pleasant, and the food was pretty good for a chain hotel.

Hotel looking a bit tired, check in efficient. Room was ok, net curtains didn't fit window needed ironed. Bathroom ok. Went for dinner, starters were fine, when our mains arrived the patatoes and Vegetables were cold, had to return them and wait for a replacement, about 20 minutes, the meat was beautiful, but the Vegetables still cold, so we gave up. Ate the Chicken and left the vegetables. Breakfast was poor, quite a few gaps on the buffet table. Staff lacked interest. Glad we were there only 1 night. lacked interest.

I stayed one night for a training course and enjoyed my stay. It's well located near to the centre and shops etc. Lots of good parking available and nice grounds. The staff I encountered were all very friendly and helpful. The bar lounge area had lots of comfortable chairs and sofas for relaxing and the restaurant looked nice though I only ate breakfast there. I informed the staff that I'm vegan and they explained what I could have. I was pleased to discover they had soy milk which was great, and it wasn't an issue for me that they didn't have a non dairy spread, however the staff kindly offered to get some in if I was staying another night. I slept fairly well although I could hear people opening/closing doors but that's just typical of most hotels. There was a function on that evening and I didn't hear any of the noise from that. Overall great customer service and a good stay.

I only stayed for one night, last weekend. Whilst not anything special, the Mercure offers good value, pleasant rooms and great service- everything you need for a brief stopover! The location is great for Livingston Designer Outlet (easy walking distance) and obviously Livingston itself- that said the chances of anyone wanting to go to Livingston without any great need are, I would hope, fairly slim- but the hotel is also easily accessible from the M8 and is just 35 minutes from Edinburgh City Centre- so if you want to visit Edinburgh without paying for a central hotel this is an option too. There's also plenty of parking for cars (and coaches- it seems a popular hotel for groups). I had a ground floor room which was spotlessly clean, had a large comfortable bed, plenty of tea/coffee and an espresso machine. I was at the back of the hotel and there was no noise at all from outside, so had a perfect night sleep. The bar is pleasant and there's outdoor seating which was great as it was such a warm evening. Breakfast also was very good, served until 1030 at weekends which was ideal. Overall the Mercure Livingston was perfect for my needs and I'd definitely recommend it.

On a visit to Edinburgh we stayed at this hotel . Set in its own grounds and a stunning atmosphere and location , with shops a 5 minute walk away , it was perfect . The room was spotlessly clean with a great comfortable bed , it was set on 1 level and perfect for anyone with a disability. The evening meal was delicious and I liked that you could help yourself to the main course , the starter and desert was served to you , which I liked very much . All the food was outstanding. Self service breakfast , the food was piping hot and a good variety , something for everyone. The staff were well presented and very friendly and helpful. I couldn't fault a thing about this hotel , it had a comfortable lounge area with lots of seating and a great atmosphere. Large fluffy towels and tea/coffee in rooms and a hairdryer . Perfect .

Right from the start of us arriving at the Hotel I just knew it was bad. Took the Receptionist 10 minutes to turn up to book us in and then was rude. In fact I would say borderline cheeky. Girls wanted to go swimming and it was only 8.20 pm and was told now children after 8pm. Really this is the first hotel we have ever stayed in that this has happened to us and children normally allowed in until 10 pm. Room was stinky and dirty, no air conditioning and if you opened the window you could here the planes. I would not stay here again if you paid me. On leaving the Receptionist was just as bad. Poor Poor hote.

The staff are really awful. They have a bad attitude. After our stay they wouldn't even allow us to call a taxi. I would recommend this hotel to my worst enemy. Never again. The breakfast wasn't that good, very greasy, and I'm not really a person who ever complains about food.

I tend to use this hotel for business meetings, layout is very warm and hotel cant do enough for you, Food is hot and tasty and drinks plenty, price is fair and better value than bigger hotel groups, easy to get to just off the M8 and parking plenty, therefore try it, great place to stay if shopping at Livingston and above all the staff are great,

Pretty close to the public transport, prices are ok and rooms are clean. Stuff very helpful and polite. Restaurant and bar pretty good stocked up and good place to run theme party, birthday or wedding.

We stayed here for 5 nights as a coach party. The hotel was very busy and had about 3 such parties each night. So this review is written from this viewpoint. The hotel is well situated for visiting the area with a good car/coach park. The rooms are large with all the facilities you would expect. They were well cleaned each day. The swimming pool is small but good and clean; when we visited the men's shower was out of order all week with no sign of being repaired. The main problem for us was the food. The problems of dealing with large parties were obvious. The morning breakfast was chaotic with everyone scrambling efor food as it was put out! Also it was so boring and repetitive, every breakfast was exactly the same, no variation at all, only fried eggs, no scrambled, poached or boiled. The for dinner we had exactly the same veg for 5 nights, mixed veg, chips and boiled potatoes. There was one slight alterations in that the other veg switched between peas and sweetcorn. If the food situation was sorted out this would have been a good hotel.
