My wife and I had a fantastic day out at Harry Potter world. The hotel was excellent - apart from the room being cold but when telling the staff they were first class to try and sort the problem. The hotel was in a great location for Harry Potter World and lots of other attractions like Whipsnade Zoo. Collapse

Went to the Mercure yesterday for afternoon tea with a group of friends/colleagues for a retirement celebration. We were offered the opportunity of having the tea in The Orangery which is a beautiful room away from the main part of the hotel and very private. The service we received was excellent from booking the tea to service on the day by a lovely girl called Lottie and a young man called Conor. Thank you both for he excellent service you gave us. On arrival there were 3 different juice jugs and 2 jugs of water on the table, which were really needed as it was a very hot day, these were re-filled on request. We were then served tea and coffee followed by lovely fresh sandwiches, scones, cream, jam and a variety of small cakes. We had a couple of dietary requirements in our party which were catered for very well as they were given their own platters of sandwiches. We had a lovely afternoon relaxing and enjoying our surroundings and before we knew it we had spent almost 4 hours eating and chatting!! Thank you to the Mercure for your excellent service and a lovely afternoon. Collapse

The word ‘peculiar’ has many meanings, I will let you discover which applies. This was a two day stay for pleasure. I had to drop my disabled wife off before doing an errand. This stay had been booked by someone else for us and we were impressed with the web pictures of a beautiful old country house and grounds. What luxury. So here she stands at reception with our suitcase but reception is down a 12 step set of steps. She struggled down the steps actually letting the suitcase pull her down. A hotel with no disabled access seems to be quite peculiar. At the desk she is assigned a room on an upper floor. Looks for the lift and has to ask where it is. “There is not one!” Asks how a disabled person drags a suitcase up the stairs, does not get a “may I help you” or “so sorry, let me do it for you” but a new room, number 6. Well the desk staff avoided helping, bless them. My wife now goes to room 8 and enters. First step is to look in the bathroom and door handle falls off. Back to reception with door handle in hand. Aha, let’s try another room so now in 16. This room had a grand view of the garden so not all is bad. And to bribe us into loving them, a wooden board with cakes arrived and we were promised a bottle of wine if we ate in the restaurant. (That is later). This hotel advertised a pleasant looking swimming pool so my wife being an avid swimmer went to get the entry card for the pool for a lovely swim. She was told that the towels were down there and there was a phone to call reception if needed. She went to get changed and there were no towels. Now every hotel we have been in have towels in the changing area, not here. She went to the phone to call reception but there was no phone in the pool area. So then she tried the exit door to try to find a resolution. Couldn’t get out. The sign on the door instructed push! Push as she did the door did not budge. Swimming pool area was very hot and claustrophobic. She was trapped in a basement swimming pool with no way of communicating with the outside world and she had a panic attack, a major one. Luckily she had her mobile phone with her and called several people to call the hotel. Finally I got a message whilst driving down the M25 in dense traffic and pulled over to call the hotel to let her out. She was released and by now severely distressed, the staff treated her as she was a silly woman, “must tell the maintenance people tomorrow”. The duty manager did bring her a towel and apologised but by then the damage was done. By about then I got back to the hotel. I was told to go the room 16. This was located in a modern block that looked like social housing and I asked about the country house! Well that must be for the proms!!! Now to the restaurant for supper. Big room, probably seats 80 covers. We were alone, not another soul. Now the menu is a matter of individual taste so one should not comment too much except it was rather limited. For a starter we tried the asparagus with god knows what. It arrived. Four, yes four asparagus spears covered in a little cheesy something at £9, yes nine pounds each. That is £2.25 a spear. I think the expression is taking the p-something. And they were as hard as rock, does one not cook these things? Lamb shank, very good and the young waitress redeemed herself with some ice cream. The starter was ‘nouveau cuisine’ gone off the rails! Bed comfortable, we sleep well after a double brandy! Next evening, we went for a swim. Went by reception to ensure that towels were in the changing room, ‘yes sir’ was the response. Took my mobile just in case as I had their number already logged in. Nice swim, probably the best facility in this place and then went to dry off and get changed. No towels. Called reception, “they are there”, “I am looking at the towel rack, no they are not”, “I just put them there”, so I said come and see for yourself. This young girl duly arrived and I led her into the changing room and pointed at the towel rack or shelves and she told me they were outside. So she took me to the ‘outside’. And yes there was a set of towels through two doors into the public access area. So I asked her, “when I have got my swim suit off and am soaking wet, do I go through two doors (one of which locks one out) and go into the public passage way dripping and starker to get one’;s towel? That got her and she had no answer. Then she said the towel rack in the changing rooms are for your valuables, but there is a sign telling us not to leave valuables!! I told her not to worry, I will walk through the reception area, starker’s and wet to get a fresh card to get into my room and as this changing area is communal for both sexes will not this be fun. She disappeared! We went down the road to a pub for a great supper. Nothing noveau here just good grub. Next morning we awake for a nice cup of tea. The room had been made up but had it? No tea bags, not tubes of plastic milk, reception did eventually bring some down to our social housing block. Perhaps I should open the door starker I asked, wife decided no!!! So now to exit. Informed the desk that the shower glass wall thingy in the bath room was loose and potentially dangerous and other than that the stay had been most peculiar. Oh one last thing. I find you can judge the quality of a hotel through the little things. Do they provide glasses in the bathroom for your water glass at night or do they give you a plastic thing in a plastic bag. That separates the cheapos from the quality and of course do they allow the disabled bays to be taken up by bloody great 4x4s? Well guess what happened here. Yes they had cheapo plastic and a token 4x4. This was not a reception problem, this is a management problem and they just do not give a damn, make their cash from the high school proms and sod the rest!! A very peculiar hotel, indeed. Collapse

My girlfriend and I stayed here as it was close to the harry potter tour (approx 5min drive from the hotel). The hotel is easy to find but not sure on the accessibility for disabled customers. The reception is down approx 10 steps and we couldn't see any other entrance to reception with a ramp. The breakfast was spot on and the room was ok. Would definitely recommend this hotel for those visiting harry potter tour based on location. Collapse
Wedding venue for My Daughter's Wedding

Rooms were comfortable, great showers. A bit noisy after 2.30 am but that was probably down to our wedding guests so no biggie. Great old house, fabulous grounds for the photos. Well organised and slick operation.

My friend and I stayed at the Hunton park hotel in June 2017 for my friends birthday. This hotel had comfortable beds and a very powerful shower (rare for some hotels to provide more than a trickle) the hotel was clean, all the staff were very polite and always said good morning or good evening and cool free refreshments provided at key points such as the lobby and bar (fresh fruit in a water barrel with tap) these refreshments were an amazing addition as we went when it was very hot and humid. The hotels gardens are lovely and felt 5 star but the price was affordable, certain areas within the hotel could do with a lick of paint where guests have caught doors and walls with luggage but signs were up saying the place was having a revamp so maybe this will be part of it. I highly recommend staying here as it has good transport links to London via Watford junction and also close to harry Potter world - a great place to visit. Collapse
