Positive Reviews

The staff is great.

The friendly, knowledgeable staff welcomes you at check in and is there for you throughout your stay. They are happy to accommodate most any request and can point you in the direction of local sights, eateries and entertainments.

This is a non-smoking hotel.

Mercure Wigan Oak is a non-smoking property which is great for those who don’t imbibe and like their surroundings smelling fresh, rather than like second-hand smoke.

This is a pet-friendly place.

This hotel is pet-friendly, which is wonderful for those who like to travel with their favourite four-legged friends. Your dog will love it too because there are lots of great walks to be had nearby.

Negative Reviews

The food is mediocre.

The food at Mercure Wigan Oaks is lacking in flavor and the presentation leaves a lot to be desired. If you want fried eggs in the morning, expect a long wait as the number of employees staffing breakfast is minimal at best.

Things can get noisy.

If you are looking for a quiet stay, be sure to book a room at the rear of the property, well away from the street noise that permeates the front of the property. In addition, be sure to ask for a room far away from the lifts as you'll be kept awake all night by the coming and going of other hotel guests.

The place needs a facelift.

Worn carpeting, stained walls, dated furnishings in both the public spaces and guest rooms, as well as bathroom fixtures that have seen better days need updating which, all-in-all, makes for a rather unpleasant stay.
