Mercure Canberra

Bar staff, old-style hotel, lounge area
It was ok, but the pillows are terrible, there are no top sheets on the beds, there aren't powerpoints next to the bed for customers, should have free wi-fi, breakfast was expensive and pretty uninspiring, bistro menu was also pretty uninspiring and the food was pretty average. For me the location was most important on this trip, but I wouldn't stay here if I was on holidays or had business elsewhere in Canberra. Attracts pretty ordinary "local" clientele in bar. The "trivia night" was disruptive to the average punter or family.

Mixed Response to our stay !

Location Cleanliness and Space in room
Room was a great size but too dark and poorly lit inside to find things in a suitcase ! Also room had a balcony which looked over green tanks - a shame as the balcony would have been great to use. Staff were pleasant. Breakfast one of the worst we have experienced in all our travels but lovely to be able to eat outside in a peaceful area. Because the location is so handy for us when we are in Canberra we chose to stay there again in a better room - which we were disappointed with.

Pretty average hotel.

Locatiuon (for my specific purpose)
I have stayed here several times in the past, but it has run down over the time. The long, endless narrow corridors are not particulary inviting. The size of the room was ok, but ours, alegedley "upgraded", looked out to the carpark. Just as well we stayed here one night only. Probably it was the last time I stayed here.

Stayed in this hotel for over 50 years

location, price and room
I stay at this hotel a lot, over the last 50 years to tell the truth. I am a businessman, so I look for a few things, cost, value for money and location. Cost are very reasonable, but hotels these days should offer free wifi, McDonalds can and this place offers 30 mins free then a very high cost to continue. The room we had was a loft room, so very large and nice to stay in it, small kitchen, and dinning table, which turned into a desk, but this hotel is old in its design, and that makes it interesting, but from reception to our room, it is a it of a track, not a lot of stairs, but some. Our room was almost in the middle so back entrance or front it made no difference. Location is very good, very close to almost everything. This is a pub, bar, Tab, bottle shop, poker machines the lot. 4 Stars not really yes 3 or 3.5 free internet would get you the 4 Dinner was in what they call the bistro, well its the bar, and Tab area, so a lot of noise from the punters and the football. There are some lounges and comfortable seats outside this area. And yes I will stay again

Ensuite was positioned wrong

It was clean, room well appointed, location
It was an enjoyable stay. It was a struggle to park in the carpark that was offered
