What do people generally want when staying at a hotel? A friendly welcome, a clean room, a decent meal and friendly staff. That's what I found at at the Mercure Townsville.
Although this hotel ticks all the box's, it has this strange mix/atmosphere. Located next to a cluster of fast food outlets on one side, and a large urban style shopping complex on the other, its location doesn't seem to fit the Mercure brand. Its outside the CBD, yet fairly close to other areas.
The hotel itself is also a mismatch of new and old. For example, the lobby, pool and resturaunt look fantastic, yet the accommodation block has a motel look with Accor style gear inside.
With that being said, Reception was quick, friendly and professional. Room service was also great as was the food.
This is a good hotel, I wasn't disappointed.
