Free Breakfast and Cocktails at Novotel and Mercure Hotels – and How To Book For £36.64 (Reminder)

I posted last month about a fantastic offer for free breakfast when staying at Novotel or Mercure Hotels in the UK (+ free cocktails at Novotels). The offer is extremely generous and runs until the end of March so I thought it was worth a quick reminder.

You need to print the voucher out (there are a variety of other discounts available that you might be interested in too):

The reason why the offer is so generous is because it can be used regardless of how cheap the rate you book is – and therefore stacks perfectly with Accor’s brilliant ‘Happy Mondays’ rates, where Novotel and Mercure Hotels outside London are just £40 (£60 in London).

I’ve taken advantage of the offers a few times personally now and haven’t had any problems at all – although I would recommend emailing in advance just make certain.

Anything else?


Sign-up to Accor’s loyalty programme ‘Le Club’ to get free internet, priority check-in and to start earning Accor Points from your stays.

Also, don’t forget cashback – currently 8.4% with TopCashback for stays at Novotel or Mercure Hotels.

That brings the real cost down to £36.64 per night. Add a couple of breakfasts (~£24) and cocktails (~£12), and your actual stay is effectively free if you’d buy those things normally when staying at a hotel!

Bottom line

Happy Mondays is my favourite recurring offer for UK hotels – being able to book decent 4*s in city centres for £40 every week is fantastic. Stacking that with cashback and getting free breakfast + cocktails included too is an incredible deal!


Offer valid 1st January to 31st March 2017, subject to availability. Participating hotels only. Voucher cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer. No cash value. Blackout dates apply. Other terms and conditions may apply and vary per hotel. Please contact your Mercure hotel for further information.

    I used both of these vouchers at the Novotel in Manchester a few weeks ago, I was lucky to get the one staff member there that actually had seen them before otherwise I doubt they would have been honoured. It seems as if there has been no instruction from central management to hotels about these promos and I was made to feel a bit guilty for having my free cocktail, even though it was non-alcoholic since I was on Dryanuary!

      Sorry to hear that. I’ve used them there too and had a great experience! They were certainly a bit confused but very helpful. Ended up with 4 cocktails for 3 people (2 rooms) and room service breakfast without even a tray charge.
