“Adequate without being spectacular”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

The staff were friendly and the room was reasonably appointed although a bit on the shabby side.
The bed was a bit too hard for my liking and the leather lounge was not at all comfortable. The arm even fell off when I leaned on it.
The rooms are quite spacious with a good TV. The cleaning left a lot to be desired with dust on just about every surface (see photo).
The title of the property (Mercure Resort Gerringong by the Sea) is misleading as the sea is quite some distance away. I would rename it "Mercure Resort Gerringong by the Swampy Paddock across the Road".
A plus is that it is very peaceful and quiet. Would I stay here again......maybe, if I got a good deal.

We rang the hotel in the morning to book in on the same day. Staff were helpful and accommodating of our spontaneous request. We got a good price and loved our stay, swimming, playing tennis and hanging out. It was perfect for what we were looking for, very family friendly and lovely surrounds. The rooms were big enough for 2 adults and 2 children. A little haven by the beach.

From the moment I rang to book the hotel, the customer service was great. Managed to get 1 room for all of us ( 2 adults and 4 children (1 is just a baby)), which is great as the kids would have all stayed in our room anyway even if we got two rooms so saved ourselves some money.
We had a king, a single and a double sofa which was made up nicely for us.
However was dissapointing when we looked into the fridge to find someone else's pizza and milk in there that wasn't cleaned out. We werent too fussed as the room was nice. The cushions on the couch were ripped and there is mould on the grout in the bathroom which is a quick fix for the hotel but im not sure why dont clean/regrout as it does put you off..other than that everything was fine and we were happy with the $179 pricetag. On the plus side the customer service was very good!..(although they could have not charged us for breakfast for leaving the pizza in the fridge)....the kids enjoyed the pool and checkin/out was very easy. Would definitely comeback.

Stayed here for a work conference over two days and it was outstanding. Staff are amazing and nothing is too much trouble. Food was incredible....as good as any great restuarant! Rooms are huge and incredibly comfortable and clean. Grounds are lovely with lots of lovely shady areas.
Our conference was enhanced immensely through the attention paid to us by Melissa who was assigned to look after our needs.....I dont think I have ever seen and received such great service. What an asset....Mercure you need to hold on to this lady, she is a star!

I've stayed here over 5 occasions for business, each time I've left thinking what a good find. The rooms are modern, comfortable and dont have the "hospital lighting feel" many hotels tend to have nowadays. The pool is great as are the rest of the facilities. The restaurant is outstanding, with buffet breakfast fresh, and delicious. The staff are nice, however several occasions they can't seem to figure out how to combine the restaurant and hotel room bill together, in one instance having the restaurant waitress knocking on my door at 10pm asking for my credit card.
Considering the price for the rooms, this hotel is one of the best value for money in the region and I'd highly recommend for those who just need a room for the night, or even for those visiting Gerringong for a few days who want a touch of luxury accommodation.

I stayed over night during a major storm, so we were confined to the hotel for the evening. The staff were pleasant and helpful, check was smooth. The beds were nice, the room with a balcony overlooking the pool and tennis courts was nice. Everything was nice. We booked on a pay in advance special rate, so it was good value. Even though we were told breakfast was not included, it was. The meals in the evening were well presented, the wine list had a few local wines, but mainly from other regions. The pay for use internet is an issue, it should be free (for limited use).

This was a beautiful Resort with a spacious little studio apartment, Although it is not really "By the Sea", The bed was comfy the buffet breakfast was beautiful, It is a little far from main shops etc so you will need a car for this.
Room was beautiful had a great time. Would go again!!

Room Tip: I didnt try the fitness centre, I loved it!
