We (2 adults, 2 kids) always stay at the Mercure (formerly Olims) on our trips from Sydney to the Snowy Mountains. We love the fact that they have a couple of larger suites, easy free outdoor parking, a bottle shop, pub and bistro for easy evening meals (esp. as Canberra's eateries are so concentrated in just a few areas and...

We have stayed at this hotel numerous times over the years and it continues to offer the same great standard. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The restaurant offers great tasting food. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff at reception and the location is perfect.

As soon as you enter reception you see a roaring fire and cosy seating. This leads out to a well kept courtyard. Check-in was quick and smooth. Staff at the desk and throughout the hotel were consistently friendly. The room was a very good size with a balcony looking out onto the courtyard. Heating worked well (very important in Canberran...

As we were flying into Canberra in the evening and planned to do a couple things in Canberra the next morning, we needed a comfortable place to stay, preferably near the War Memorial. This is our first time staying... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Mercure Canberra combines old world charm with modern comforts. The hotel, one of Canberra’s first, opened its’ doors in 1927 and even after a recent $8 million refurbishment, still maintains many original features. Set around an impressive internal courtyard, the hotel is the ideal place to unwind after a hard day at work, or relax after exploring the many tourist attractions or outdoor activities that Canberra has to offer.Superbly located, the hotel is moments from the city centres’ shops, bars, restaurants and entertainment as well as the National Convention Centre and many of Canberra’s Government agencies. Canberra’s two Universities, Australian National University and University of Canberra are only a short drive from the hotel as are many popular attractions, including the Australian War Memorial which is only 800m along Limestone Avenue.Along with 129 rooms, gymnasium, three flexible meeting rooms, two stunning fish tanks and complimentary off street car parking, the hotel facilities are sure to please business and leisure guests alike. Mercure Canberra offers two dining options, Courtyard Restaurant open for breakfast daily and a la carte dinner Tuesday to Saturday (closed for dinner mid December to end January). Alternatively the Ainslie Bar/Bistro and Beer Garden is open for lunch and dinner every day of the year for a more casual dining experience.We look forward to welcoming you to Mercure Canberra ... more   less
