Excellent staff, food, location

staff, food, location
I stayed 3 nights in the sea-view room, the room view was amazing, the staff were 5 star and the food was amazing as well! however, the bathrooms are very outdated and in need of renovation, no free pay tv, just a small screen tv, bed wasn't a king-sized mattress, it was 2 single beds zipped together, overall id like to thank the staff for their top notch performance, service and friendliness

Mecure harbourside

1) staff were very accommodating. 2) pool was ok but not enough pool lounges. 3) has a courtesy bus if you don't want to walk the 25 minutes into Cairns Central.
Room was old & tired looking and in need of updating. The carpet had stains & mould on bathroom tiles. The hotel is on the very edge of the city (25 minute walk into central) which means you're out of hub of activity. Pool area is ok but small with only 10 lounges - so first in first served. It's ok but I've stayed at better hotels that were also closer in.

Cost Cost Cost
More than likely I wouldn't stay at the hotel again as it is a fair distance away. Its a quite a long walk to get to the pier and city center. If you don't mind driving the entire time its fine, but then you need to pay for a park in the city - if you can find one.

Not my expectations compared with Mercure Gold Coa

Nice staff
The reason that I book this hotel is I have a pleasant stay in Mercure Gold Coast, however, a little bit disappointed compared with my last stay at the same hotel group, anyway, it's not bad that I extra pay for AUD40 per night to upgrade my room.

Great view

View was fantastic staff were friendly it was very clean
The buffet breakfast was expensive - I did not include it in my room rate so paid separately- and it was cold. Everything else was super
