A friend and I planned a last minute weekend trip to Daylesford/Hepburn Springs but many hotels in this area are booked out on weekends far in advance, or if not have inappropriate bed arrangements for non-couple duos or won't allow one night stays. Came across Grand Mercure apartments last minute and am actually glad we chose to stay here rather than in the popular accommodations closer to our intended destination, even if it meant being a bit of a drive further away.
Very clean apartments; amenities all provided. We even called the Novotel reception in the wee hours of the morning to see if room service was available even though this service is not meant to be an option for the apartments (recommended to bring your own food as kitchen facilities available). Debbie at reception was very helpful and obliging, provided we picked the food up from reception ourselves.
Only thing I would have to nitpick about is that hot water in the shower did take a while to come through (as some reviews have said) but it did eventually so just be patient!
My friend and I were very impressed by what you get at the apartments for a reasonable and relatively cheaper price than other accommodation options in the area. Only stayed one night but would definitely stay here again! Thanks for a great stay!
