“Long weekend stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

We stayed on a business trip over the June long weekend and were very happy with the location of the hotel and with the cleanliness, service and type of room. We were however very disappointed that we were unable to dine at the hotel of anevening as the dining room is closed on sundays and public holidays - this isn't mentioned in advertising and we wouldn't have stayed there had we been aware of the dining room closure. We are members of Accor Advantage Plus and were unable to utilise our member advantages with regard to dining. In every other respect we were quite happy with this hotel

Paid for a king privilege room which was quite large and view was great but the windows were filthy and the carpet dirty. Also the shower had mould spots in the grout. Concierge was not very helpful either. When asked about restaurants in the area he could only promote the in house room service or an RSL down the road. Will not be visiting the mercure Charlestown again.

I travel to Newcastle regularly for work and over the years have tried a number of hotels around town but since staying at the Mercure in Charlestown I haven't stayed anywhere else. Rooms are clean, comfortable and spacious, bathrooms are good and some recently renovated. I haven't tried the facilities but the service is always professional and friendly. It is any easy drive to Charlestown shops and there is always plenty of parking. A great value option for Newcastle.

Had a great experience at Mercure Charlestown - thanks to William who did above and beyond! He was friendly and helpful. He gave us a free upgrade to a king sized bed on the top floor and accommodated our needs for extra pillow, towel and quilt. The room was spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and wanted to thank William again when we checked out but he wasn't on duty. We would stay again.

Handy to Charlestown Square shopping centre and Lake Macquarie Private Hospital. Good clean accommodation. Beautiful meals in the restaurant at reasonable prices for a city motel. Very friendly and helpful staff.

This hotel was OK for a quick overnight stay, desperately in need of a makeover though, the bed I had was sagging and not at all comfortable and there was a weird light under the bath in the bathroom.
