Choose the elegant Mercure Burton Upon Trent Newton Park for its private grounds and Peak District views. The hotel is a Grade II listed, Italianate-style manor in 8 acres of manicured grounds looking out onto the Peak District. Sample real ales in Burton Upon Trent’s micro-breweries, 3 miles away; or ride high at Alton Towers theme park, an easy 30 minute drive away. Relax with an aperitif on the terrace before savouring local specialities, flavoured with home-grown herbs, in the oak-panelled Folly Restaurant with its Italianate plasterwork ceiling and grand original fireplace. As the sun sets over the country estate, enjoy a sundowner in the high-ceilinged Club Bar. Retreat to your comfortable standard room with garden views, upgrade to an executive room for extra space and complimentary magazines, or treat yourself to a spacious suite with a sofa or four-poster bed. With just 50 rooms, it’s the little things that count: from express checkout to 24-hour room service and complimentary WiFi internet access.

We attended a Murder Mystery evening at Mercure Burton Upon Trent Newton Park and I was pleasantly surprised to find a venue that lent itself so nicely to a Hercule Poirot type affair. The building itself is quite old and, as I say, is the type of place one might expect to see Hastings and Poirot quietly discussing why Lady so-and-so might have had cause to murder the stable boy, or some such stuff. There is a small(ish) bar where you will find a decent enough selection of drinks (though, oddly, no Guinness) that are all priced somewhat higher than they really ought to be. The dining room is vast, so tables are certainly not too cramped together and the room is light and airy. The breakfast room is not so big, but the breakfast itself was very, very good and I would recommend staying at the hotel for that alone. The rest of the hotel seems to comprise mainly of guest rooms up the flights of stairs. There was a room called 'The Oak Room' (I think) and this seemed nice. There was a large fire in it (not lit) and the wallpaper was of artistic interpretations of birds which, though slightly odd, was really nice. The Oak Room was small and therefore lends itself to intimate post-dinner discussion. Perhaps this is where Poirot would revel the killers identity, The staff all seemed good, with the exceptions of one or two of the young girls on dinner service who seemed unaware of people as they literally pushed past you to get to the table(s). I guess it was late and they just wanted to go home, I don't know. I don't let this alter my opinion on the staff at large though. They were excellent, warm and welcoming. The room (or at least ours) was your standard double room. Not massive, but nicely set out and neat. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was decent enough. The only gripe I could have with the bathroom is the noise of the extractor fan (which comes on whenever you turn the light on, whether you want it to or not), which was surely much louder than it need be - especially when your bed is quite close to the bathroom door. The noise of the extractor fan can be forgiven when you actually get in the shower. The pressure of the shower is amazing and it is almost worth smearing yourself in mud as soon as you get out the shower, just to have an excuse to go back in again. The grounds (apparently there are 8 acres of them) are meant to be lovely, though I did not get a chance to go and see them. The food served for dinner on the night of the murder mystery night was excellent, which is quite an accomplishment as it was a pre-determined menu that presumably had to be mass produced long in advance of the evening. It was very nice indeed and I can only assume dinner there on any other given night is as good. In addition to this, we also ordered room service consisting of two margherita pizzas. These were the most expensive pizzas anyone will ever order, in the world, ever, however, they were also superb, and totally worth it! I never thought I would be able to say that, but there we go! The murder mystery evening (organised by a company called Murder 57) was excellent also - I ought to pay tribute to them here whilst I have an opportunity to do so. Collapse

We stayed here as a stopover point for our roadtrip and thought it was very good as a mid-market hotel. I stay in hotels a lot for work and thought the breakfast here was actually rather excellent so I’m not quite sure what the other travellers are complaining about. The hot meals are made to order (think full english breakfast) and so was served to us perfectly - which I much prefer to the standard rubbery hotel breakfast buffets. Black pudding was delightful! Rooms were dated (pink tiles, pink walls etc) but spacious and clean. Beds comfortable, furniture in relatively good condition and the shower pressure will blow you away! I couldn’t even shower with it on full force but my husband absolutely loved it! Staff was super friendly and lovely. Plenty of parking. No weddings while we were there so everything was nice and quiet. Collapse

This was the first time we have eaten out of our home on Christmas Day, we were welcomed by a Bucks Fizz and were soon taken to our table, which was in a very comfortable room with Gothic style decorations, our meal was excellent and taken in a leisurely manner, we were attended to by two lovely young ladies who were always pleasant and helpful their names were Danni and Zoe, while we were having our meal we had a visit from a magician who did a pretty fantastic card trick we still can not work out how he did it. So our first Christmas meal away from home was a success and we will be almost certainly doing the same next year hopefully. Collapse

We had our Christmas day dinner at this venue and I wonder if we were at the same place as a revue i have just read is poles apart from our experience we were given canapes and prosecco on arrival our table was beautifully laid out with crackers and the staff were lovely didn't really notice that the manager was wearing a jumper but maybe that's because we made our own atmosphere and didn't rely on the staff to do it for us but if you choose to monitor how much furniture there is would maybe explain why you had a bad experience Collapse
