I stayed at the Mercure for one night on a stopover. The room I was given was on the 7th floor and had a mountain view. While slightly disappointed about not having a view of the ocean the room itself was gorgeous! High loft style ceilings with classy light fittings. I was very impressed with the size of the room and the extra touches such as the Nespresso machine and the free Fiji water in the fridge.

I do not have a single complaint about my stay at the Mercure Harbourside and will happily choose to stay there again in the future.

Hotel was very nice and clean.Room was spacious and view was beautiful out to sea. It was a pleasant walk into the town, about 30 mins along the water front. It might be to far to walk in the heat of the day. I would recommend this hotel.

We recently decided to go away to celebrate a birthday and wedding anniversary. It was a little further out then we first realised but with the complimentary shuttle bus, was not a drama. It was also only about a 15minute walk from the main part of the Esplanade and as the weather is beautiful this time of year, was a great walk after an amazing dinner out. The room itself was spacious, though a little sparse on furniture. The bed was lovely and comfortable, best nights sleep we've had in a while. The reception and restaurant staff were friendly and extremely helpful, the meals we had were of a high standard. I was pleased to find that there was a bath tub in our bathroom which was lovely. The view of the city was great, though I'm sure the view of the Esplanade would have been much better. There is limited parking, but we never had an issue in finding a place in the secured section undergroud. Will most definitely be booking to stay again :)

Staff provided very good service. Room had great view out over the harbour area. Room itself was satisfactory rather than spectacular, considering price paid. Shuttle service downtown was convenient and regular. Parking on site is somewhat limited and I had to accept a street park on the first night. We had a pleasant stay for the two nights we were in town.

Room Tip: Book a harbour view room.

Staff were incredibly helpful and friendly- felt so good to be staying there. They provided useful suggestions, stored my bags for a week without it being a problem and clearly all got along with each other.
