We stayed at the Mercure in Cairns for 2 nights on a pretty good deal through an agent.
We loved the staff and the price.
We didn't love the room quality or location.
The hotel is located well off the beaten path in Cairns, which was no secret prior to booking. The hotel does offer an hourly free shuttle, so that takes a bit of the sting out of the location. The staff are very helpful and accomodating.
Had we stayed longer, we definitely would have looked into something around Port Douglas or closer to the reef, but this was a nice little spot for a couple of days where we could see Cairns and then take a boat out to the reef for a one day excursion.
The room itself lacked ammenities and the bathroom wasn't the nicest we've ever used, to say the least. We did "upgrade" to the sea side room.More
