Stayed for a week on business and was made to feel welcome from the moment I arrived. Staff were excellent. Meals in the restaurant were good, although they didn't tell me of an offer where I should have got a free drink if I booked the restaurant beforehand. The room was, I have to say, a bit dated and run down - stained and peeling wallpaper, black marks in the bath and the furniture just "felt old". The cleaner didn't remove glasses from previous evenings, so I had quite a collection when I left, but the bed was clean and comfortable and there was plenty of space. A good selection at the bar too....

As a couple we stayed 3 nights at the hotel,it was located in a good central position,staff were friendly and helpful,room was of adequate size and cleanliness,we had the buffet breakfast which had a decent choice

Another pleasant stay in Perth, our third stay at the Mercure in 4 years and disappointed to see a lack of investment making the hotel look tired. Staff, service and food are excellent as usual and the Hotel location in the city centre makes it an ideal location to walk wherever within the centre. Main shopping centre a mere 5 minutes away with bars & restaurants in abundance. A nice city break location..! An added bonus this year was the Chinese New Year celebrations within the public gardens overlooking the River Tay, illuminations, Fire Dancers, traditional Chinese Dragon, music & dancing, along with displays of Chinese Calligraphy & chop sticks. Well done Perth for this free entertainment!!

Pleasant hotel,if somewhat tired,needs a make over. Cosy and warm,rooms are clean and adequately furnished. Breakfast is good,with plenty on offer. Staff are great, cheery and pleasant. Location is good too with parking outside.

Mercure Perth Hotel is the most dirty place I ever stayed. 1. dirty breakfast tea cups 2. Dirty rooms,I found an used condom under the tv table that is unacceptable and when I spoked with reception she started to laugh. 2. I had a dinner in the restaurant and I ordered a draft beer,Stella Artois..they said no Stella,also no boddington,no becks,but yes..we have water for you,what a shame.. I asked for any beer and a girl who's working there(I think she's underage) served it to me,shouldn't be illegal? I am tired to write so many unusual things that I found there.Please..choose any other hotel but not this.

Was attending a charity night taking place in this hotel, and also spent the night here as well as there was a good deal on for the event. Nice enough hotel, but by Mercure standards, I was expecting a lot better. A bit tired around the edges, but main thing is that its central and clean. Few words of warning, firstly there is no lifts in the building, so you have to walk up stairs to get to your room and to the breakfast area, and also the car parking area is not all that big, and to park on the street will cost you up to 6pm (even on Saturdays). Room was clean and spacious enough and met the requirements of what I needed for the night. Breakfast was a real plus as it was a full Scottish breakfast of all you can eat, and was extremely tasty. All in all, ok enough and if the event I am attending is in the same venue again, I will most certainly return here.

LOCATION Located at the city centre, easy to walk to River Tay and Black Watch Museum. 1 min walk to the bus stop which you can take 7A to Broxden Park & ride, and 10 mins walk from train and bus & coach station. ROOM & FACILITIES Historical building above a stream and a watermill (only a decoration) next to the reception. Backyard opens until 11pm, mainly for smoking but quite cool and relaxing as you can hear the water flow from the stream, and look at the unique 15th century architecture. Varieties of Whisky and Spirits at the bar, but the area is just at the hotel entrance, a bit too cold in winter when guests going in and out. Restaurant and room services available. Warm and cosy room, comfy beds and great to have socket next to the bed. Furniture a bit old-fashioned and the sound-proofing between rooms could be better, I wore my headphones while sleeping as my friend snored (!) but I could still hear guests chatting next door. Understand it is only a 3* hotel but still part of the Accor group, staff could be more helpful and friendly with the same standard, they only focused on their tasks. FRIENDLY REMINDER Free Wifi but you have to either login with you social media account (never, never, never do it, anywhere for free wifi) or fill in a form with name and email - and agree the terms and conditions - which is a bit weird as it mentioned ‘the owner of the venue you are visiting will also have access to this data’. I would recommend guests using their own network / data instead.

This historic hotel converted from a large water mill many years ago was a convenient base for a week's break over Christmas. It was fascinating to observe the original water channels and part of the mechanism through glass panels in the lounge. The staff were all friendly and helpful without exception.

The hotel is in a great location and staff were excellent throughout - especially the breakfast team. Rooms and common areas were clean and warm. The decor however is very tired. Although my room had obviously had some kind of makeover, an older carpet remained and the bathroom was untouched and as a result out of keeping with the room. Housekeeping also perhaps left something to be desired - the room had a couple of items of litter in it when I arrived and for some bizarre reason a Nespresso machine was trumpeted as a feature of the room but no capsules for the wretched thing were provided! A lot of investment required.

spent our new year break here (organised by David Urquhart Travel !,) hotel is in a very central location - local shops and pubs within 100 metres and the main shopping centre is only a 5 min walk away ! room was good but we experienced a noise problem which was dealt with very efficiently by hotel reception (many thanks again to them ! ) food was good although chicken was on the menu each night of our stay. The entertainment on hogmanay was superb - a 6 piece band who played a wide range of music suitable for a party night. The next night the entertainment was not as good. The only negative thing I would say is that the bar prices were a bit on the high side, and they would probably sell a lot more if they reduced them. I would return here without hesitation. A suggestion would be that when a coach party is in, there should be a tip box placed in a prominent place in reception for the hard working staff members .
