we had to be in Townsville for the weekend and needed a hotel conveniently located to shopping centres and airport. Mercure Inn came up with a good rate on wotif.
For $150 we had a superior room (which i think is the same as the standard room, but has been renovated and some added features like a king bed instead of a queen and a bigger tv).
The room was not the biggest but spotlessly clean, the tv was indeed big with an enormous selection of inhouse movies for $14.95 (lots of new releases, ended up watching SATC2). The complimentary shower gel and body lotion was beautiful and i actually used them instead of just taking them home and sticking them in a drawer.
But most impressed we were with the bed. Man was that comfy, we did not want to get out of it!
There were 2 weddings on at the night we stayed both in function rooms close to our room but we didn't have any inconvenience from them, bar staff in the evening was very friendly (as was breakfast staff), and when asking for a place to smoke in the eve we were pointed to a lovely little undercover area with sofas and a water feature where we could bring our drinks (and breakfast coffees) what a difference to playing the pariah in the parking lot! Reception staff was also very accommodating, checking flight arrival times and tracking down my long lost A-Club number.
Dinner menu looked good, and good value, though we didn't eat in due to obligations out, will definitely consider next time. Massive parking area, easy access, would most definitely stay again!
(For those planning to stay around longer there is also a beautiful and big! resort style pool)
