“Mercure Magic in the ACT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

This may have been the first time I have stayed here and it won't be the last.Rooms and accommodation were excellent while the restaurant was a delight .My only criticism is that the wine list was devoid of local wine which is excellent.Why?Clonakilla,Larks Hill and many more.I look forward to my return and the opportunity of drinking some local quality wine next time.

Enjoyed the charm of this hotel. Great accommodation - very comfortable beds - and excellent service. Being accompanied by a number of children we initially chose to dine at the Restaurant, but the children did not like the menu so we went to the bistro - even though the waitress had set up 2 tables for us in the restaurant when we decided to move to the bistro she displayed an excellent understanding attitude & customer service.

Have now stayed twice on business and find the hotel very comfortable and pleasant to stay at. The meals are reasonable either in the main restaurant or the bistro and the bar staff are friendly. I like the loft room because of the space and find the beds very comfortable.

We enjoyed our stay experiencing the lifestyle of our past Statemens - the ambiance was great the hotel is refurbished in the style of past establishment. Our room was very pleasant looking over the central Courtyard - we could have done with a map to show how to navigate to various parts of the building. Very tastey meal in the bistro and reasonably priced. Unless you are a party animal don't go on a Friday or Saturday night as the pavers in the very large central courtyard had signs of much activity.. They were being cleaned when we left on Monday morning. Management buy the gentleman who was on his hands and knees picking up the cigarette buts from the lawn a vacumm cleaner - a much more dignified way to work.

Room extremely clean and well fitted out with doors opening to a balcony for fresh air - something often hard to find in modern hotels. Good attention to detail in the "extras" in the room and also with the service generally.
Room staff and wait staff friendly and efficient.
Great position in Canberra - quiet surroundings but also central.
Recommended.

Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast very good. Not happy that sheets on bed had not been changed after previous guest. Quickly replaced by a staff member. Fridge was not switched on. Pillows like bags of cement! Bathroom was great- recently refurbished. Good quality large soft towels. Despite the few problems, enjoyed my stay.

We were warmly welcomed by the staff at the reception desk and the location is good with a large carpark for guests and so close to the city centre.It is free parking.
All the staff are very helpful and friendly.
