“Close to town but so is others”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

Ok to stay, nothing special. View was pretty ordinary, restaurant very pricey. Think I would try another hotel next time as there are others close to city. Rooms were average. Having trouble reviewing as not much to say

Stayed at the hotel for a week and although I'd go back again, have to say that the walls are very thin

Great location though: 2 blocks away from Queen Street Mall, 15 min walk to South Bank and 3 blocks away from Translink Central Station

Great set up in room, comfy bed and great water pressure

I spent 1 night at Mercure Brisbane King George Square last week. It is centrally located hotel with two hotels in one complex so it can be confusing. Left wing is Mercure and right wing is Pullman hotel which is bit upmarket Accor brand compared to Mercure. Check in was quick and efficient. I have told them about my Platinum status with Le Club Accor program and checkin staff promptly offered wine/fruit platter as complimentary amenities as well as 2 drink vouchers for bar which was nice gesture. I was told about pool/spa but did not have time to use them. I did not use restaurent in morning but did order room service breakfast which was good. Room itself was reasonable size with work desk and average bathroom. Overall fine for short business stay at affordable price especially if you prefer to stay in CBD.

Room keys are used until they stop working in the locks. And no! it is not because i've put my keys next to my mobile phone, but because the keys were so used and scratched up they simply did not work anymore. Small old tv with burned in menu image on screen. Wardrobe smelled like mold, did not even investigate why...
Parking... they insist on providing vallet to park your car. If you want to park yourself, still they want you to leave your keys downstairs. Every time you drive back to the hotel they want to know if you are going to be using your vehicle today. Annoying! One thing i've noticed - to bring you the vehicle to the front door, they have to drive in traffic a 100 m, pass the lights, make a u-turn, drive back 100 m, cross the street to get into the drive way... All of these in your rental, in heavy city traffic, with no insurance (since you are not paying insurance for vallet to drive you vehicle to the rental company) and no responsibility (according to the hotel rules printed on the docket they give you for parking) for the car... Getting your vehicle from the garage takes about 15-20 min. The hotel chooses to park up to 6 vehicles on driveway for guests, who requested their vehicles to be ready at certain time, that leaves enough room for just 2 cars to get to the main entrance, with the rest waiting in the street blocking traffic.
Pool was too cool to get into.
Beds were comfortable and we had a good night sleep.
Restaurant... Been only for breakfast... For $30 something pp I have seen better quality and variety on buffet breakfast.
Will not stay there ever again.

Dear Foreignjon,

Thankyoufor your feedback about your stay, we do appreciate it. Please accept my apologies for problems that arose during your stay. The TV’s are something we are looking into replacing in the future and I will ensure our Executive housekeeper is made aware of the smell in the wardrobe. The pool heating is currently being looked at and fixed.

With regards to parking, our guests are able to self-park, if they wish, or use the valet service. I apologise for any inconvenience that this caused you but we guests leave their keys with concierge, especially in the event they have parked in one of the double park spaces or if a guests requests for their car to brought up to the drive . The position of the carpark is an unfortunate one and not one we are able to fix.

Foreignjon, again my apologies for any inconveniences cause during your stay. I do hope that into the future you will stay with us again. Please be assured we take all feedback seriously as it is through such feedback that we can improve our service to meet our guests needs

Sincerely,
Grant Parnell
General Manager
