The staff here were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble, the breakfast was also excellent. Rooms were fab too. Really was good value for money.
As is often the case with hotels of this type close to good roads and motorway access, the surrounding area can be found "wanting", many of the buildings in the locale are run down and in need of repair.
Breakfast selection was good. Dining room/breakfast area is nicely furnished and does present a relaxed atmosphere. Access to and from the motorway is also very good and despite the hotels proximity to the main road it is peaceful and quite for a good nights sleep.
Evening meals are of mediocre quality and do not appear to be freshly cooked - more like pre-cooked and warmed up. The tube in one of the shaving lights that run down the side of the mirror requires replacement and due to it's constant flashing could not be used as it was creating a strobing effect which is not pleasant. The transformer to the low voltage light in the toilet also requires replacement as it kept cutting out leaving you in total darkness in the toilet - not pleasant ! There is a Japanese lady on reception duty who could also do with a few lessons in customer relations. Both my colleagues and I found her to be rather rude in her approach to questions we had and she gave the impression that she was too good to be in the role that she was doing and that it was beneath her to deal with any of the questions we had.
Upon arrival receptionist called Lily just gave us random keys to rooms we had not ordered. It took over an hour to get one correct room out of the two ordered. We specifically asked for rooms with showers and were given rooms with baths. We were a family group with one wheelchair traveler and one elderly person. Lily was very rude and not at all helpful. Luckily there was another friendly receptionist called Rita who helped us. Food was very poor and we felt as if we were in a transport cafe!!! On the other hand breakfast was really good. Carpets in the halls of this establishment were all stained and dirty. The price of staying in this 3* hotel was exorbitant and far more than we paid the night before in a first class chateau. A really bad experience.
Friendly reception. Plenty of parking. Close to motorway and my customer.
Enjoyed the lunch buffet but had diarree the next day (didn't take dinner). The other day i arrived back at the hotel at 17:00 and the buffet was already filled with food for the 19:00 start of the dinner.. Some didn't look fresh anymore. Scrambled eggs for breakfast didn't look nor taste like the eggs you do at home.
Staff. Very good and attentive. Food was kind of fine dining meets rustic but it was good old fashioned and very tasty with large portions.
The room was boiling hot and turning down the thermostat achieved nothing while opening the window made it arctic.
With great transport links to Saarbrücken Airport and the TGV station, this Mercure hotel is also handily located just next to the Burgof Conference Centre. Surrounded on all sides by Forbach's swimming and tennis facilities, this contemporary hotel, located just off the exit to the Paris-Frankfurt motorway, is within easy reach of the town centre. The air-conditioned rooms are perfectly designed for relaxation. Enjoy a meal on the restaurant terrace in the evening.
