Staying at Mercure Warwickshire Walton Hall Hotel & Spa, UK

During our  2-week trip to the UK, we stayed in a lot of hotels, and yet, one of the hotels that I really liked would have to be Mercure Warwickshire. After spending the whole day touring around Chester and Stratford upon Avon (blogging about that soon!), we headed to Mercure, which is just 8 miles from Shakespeare’s Birthplace.

The view from our hotel room. It overlooks the parking lot actually, but you can also see Walton Hall from here.

Out of all the hotels we stayed at, I think that this was one of the biggest rooms we’ve had during our trip. Usually, the first thing I do when arriving at a hotel room is to immediately drop dead on the bed, but this time round, I managed to take a photo of it before doing so, haha. Upon arrival, the beds were neat and tidy.

We also had our dinner at the hotel! For starters they gave us a bread basket – sans the basket, as the bread was placed on a plate instead lol. As the bread is only one per person I only got to try one. I tried the weirdest looking one out of the bunch! That is, the one on the upper right. It was really soft and the black dots (some sort of seed?) didn’t affect the taste! Then again, bread is bread haha. I slathered butter on it and it was really good!

They also gave us soup for our appetiser, pumpkin soup if I remember right, but I don’t have a good photo of it. ;;

For our mains, we had a pork dish. My plate seemed to be undercooked though (still bloody), so I had to have it replaced! It was alright, though without the gravy the meat itself was bland.

This is what we had for dessert! Cheesecake. It was just okay.

As it was already dark when we finished our dinner, and we were also really tired from walking around all day, we immediately hit the sack. We did, however, wake up earlier than usual as we wanted to explore and see the grounds a little more! Haha, I took this minutes after waking up. It was around 5 am when I took this shot. The moon was still visible up in the sky. 😀

After packing our stuff and such, we ventured out as we still had ample amount of time to take a look around the place before breakfast.

These are also rooms, I think.

There was a small chapel and graveyard near the Hall.

As we walked around, we were literally the only people around the place so it was quite relaxing!

There were also various birds around the place, and look at this fella! From the other side, it swam gracefully over to where we were.

Such a pretty sight! This reminds me of Downton Abbey, haha. Apparently, there are also hotel rooms located here at the Hall, but it’s pricier.

As it was getting late, we went back to our room to do a final sweep to ensure we left nothing behind and then we headed to breakfast! Can you spot the bird?

Overall, we had a lovely time here. Wi-fi’s quite fast, the room was spacious and though we didn’t actually see the amenities such as the spa, I would wager that they’re good too! Anyway, I would love to explore the place some more – I think there are walking paths here or something, but I’m glad that at least we got to stay even if it was just for a night! 🙂
