          • Older travelers

            We were given a family unit which had 2 bedrooms so we had plenty of room. The breakfast was good although food was warm not hot. The staff that we met were pleasant.

            We have stayed in this hotel before (we have an Accor loyalty card) so were not surprised but we don't believe the hotel meets the standard of other Mercure hotels. The bedrooms are very plain, the decore is bland and the facilities are basic. The feel you experience as you walk to your room from the lifts is similar to walking through a dated factory admin. Block. The in-room dining menu is not very good although it offers some variety including Asian, Indian and pizza meals it is still limited, you can't get a club sandwich or burger for example and I think a lot of people would prefer something more simple than Indian curry after a late arrival. We new where the hotel was but it is not very close to the main shopping, the waterfront or other points of interest and requires quite a bit of walking, generally uphill when returning to the hotel

            We were 1st timers in Hobart and the mecure was the perfect location for our 4 day stay. The convenience of it's location enabled us to visit some beautiful sites such as port Arthur, Bruny Island, Salamanca markets, The rainforest airwalk not to mention all of the great restaurants

            The room was clean

            I arrived to the hotel @ 7pm. My room was very cold. I discovered the large balcony door was open and it was extremly windy. I attempted to close it but it would not close or lock! In the bathroom there was a large crack running right through the sink ,the bathroom was very tired and needed updating . I went down to reception to explain , they said they would send someone up to put a stick in it! I ask if there was a another room or if I could be upgraded and would pay any extra costs. They just said this was not possible as this was their superior room. With no safe in the rooms either I was very worried about security. The breakfast was unedible which I was chared 32 dollors for! Dont stay here!

            The room is clean.

            We couldn't sleep well as the room is not sound proof I guess, we can heard moaning voice from next door.

            The whole stay was excelent and the staff were just 100% and very quick to respond to any request.

            The bath room requires more ventilation.

            Staff were very good. Breakfast was good. Parking was good. Room was clean.

            Location is a bit remote from waterside activities and restaurants. Decor is slightly dated.

            the restaurant was quite good. We enjoyed the pizza bread and the main course of fish.

            I was astounded that a large city hotel was not airconditioned and that the window could only be opened a few inches. We were there in the middle of summer and were very hot in our room. For the price we were paying it was not value for money.

            I would have to say I liked the tv and the balcony and the fact you could open the door on the bakcony and let in the fresh air.

            The bathroom was really small and really dangerous and slippery and there were no hand holds

            My gripe as with a all big hotels is the cost of connecting to the internet. Its licensed theft.

            It was centrally located.

            A week before we arrived we were told we could check-in early, when we arrived we were told to wait 5 minutes and then a room would be ready, after waiting 30 minutes we asked again and were told they didn't have a room ready until normal check-in time. Room was very out-dated, no air- conditioning which made it very hot. The iron ruined a pair of my partners trousers due to it needing a clean and being black.

            We were there for ten days. never been to Tasmania before so it took some time to decide. i searched the net for a couple of months before i selected this hotel. I read some of the reviews nothing stood out, I liked the whole deal, from the moment you enter the foyer there is someone to greet you with a smile, a fast check in, and up to your room to refresh yourself, that was so important to me. the location was very good easy access to any compass direction. The staff we met in the morning and afternoon were so nice, We have decided to return with another couple much later this year, sadly we will not be able to stay as long, as we need to discover other parts of Tasmania. One final note, above all staff there is one, one who just seem to click with us and other guests someone who could make you feel as though you have known them for a long time, someone who seemed genuinely concerned about you and your stay as though it was all her responsibility, so to Alex Thank you.
