Mercure Hotel - Great Danes in Maidstone

I stayed in this amazing hotel as my works Christmas party was being held here. I thought it would be better to be staying onsite then trying to get a taxi home at the end of the night.

I had booked the afternoon off of work so that I could go and have some me time at the hotel and I am so glad that I did because the room was amazing.

It was a lovely big spacious room with a huge bed, 2 desks, one of which had the TV on it, a wardrobe with extra towels, an ironing board, iron, hangers, a safe, hairdryer and tea making facilities. It was very stylish and modern with a few nice pieces of artwork on the walls. The view out of the window was lovely as well as we were overlooking the woods behind the hotel.

The bed was a super comfy queen sized bed, once I'd had a shower, I vegged out on the bed watching TV and having a good chill out, it was amazing. Both myself and my husband had a great nights sleep as well, very very comfy.

I'm not a lover of live TV as I can't always find something that I want to watch so I took my Amazon Fire Stick and plugged it into the TV and had an afternoon binge watched some of my favourite shows for a few hours.

The wifi is brilliant, didn't drop out or go slow the whole time I was there. I had taken my Amazon Dot with me so that I could listen to music when I was getting ready for the party and it was perfect the whole time. Didn't have any issues with the Amazon Fire Stick or my phone either.

The bathroom was small but the space has been used well so that you don't feel cramped and it was very clean with lots of towels.

The shower was easy to use, I sometimes have problems with hotel showers but this one was easy to adjust, no scolding here lol.

The staff that we spoke to were all very nice as well. I had booked through Booking.com and paid in advance so the lady on reception made sure I had my receipt for the stay and went through the breakfast options with me.

We didn't stay for breakfast as we had to get home but it smelt fantastic, maybe I will stay for breakfast next time.
