                3.2

                An awful experience. Room we were allocated was disgustingly old and also very unclean. We have travelled the world using Booked.net and Mercure and Accor hotels and this would rate as one of the worst. A dreadful example of hotel accommodation in nz recommend you don't stay there! Lesson learned - don't believe the photos!!

                Location

                Dirty coffee cups dirty bathroom,drafty windows and door banging in the wind all night.

                6.6

                The staff were very friendly and helpful.

                I felt the room was outdated and needed to be modernised. The showered had very little pressure, which was made showering an effort.

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                After an initial hiccup in regards to the first room offered we had an enjoyable stay room 302 was excellent

                The first room offered 204 was terrible and should never be offered to the public. It may be of value to modernise the room in line with Accor standards. Given that the hotel was virtually empty I am uncertain as to why were offered it. the second room 302 was excellent

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                we liked the spacious room which was clean, well appointed and very comfortable, especially the bed. staff were all friendly and welcoming. The location is excellent and the rates/room price we booked was great value for money.

              • Group of friends
                7.8

                Location, parking, size of rooms, comfortable beds. As a smoker it was nice to be able to sit on the balcony and smoke rather than standing in the dark on the street.

                Rooms are a little tired, need a bit of upgrading. We flooded the shower as curtain was not long enough.

              • Group of friends
                5.8

                Cheap, good location if you don't have to spend a lot of time in the room.

                Needs a spruce up. Rooms were tired looking/feeling. TV's and channel selection was awful. Bring your own entertainment.

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                Although the room was large, the bed creaked and groaned with any movement. We went to the restaurant for the advertised American breakfast one hour before breakfast service finished only to be told the kitchen had ran out of food and we were offered a very mediocre continental breakfast. Needless to say we declined and departed, having breakfast at another facility.

              • Family with children
                5.4

                Location Walking distance to town

                The room we stayed in had a chipped handbasin. Terrible for this kind of money. The shower only had a curtain and the shower head faced straight into/ onto the toilet, we couldn't get the shower curtain to completely close, so the bathroom got flooded twice. We had to put the towels we had used around the bottom of the toilet to soak up the water, disgusting when you think about it, They need to revamp the rooms and get proper bathroom screens up etc. This place is tired. The room was clean ! Sorry cleaning staff you did a great job with what you had, I feel for you.

              • Older travelers
                5.4

                Restaurant very good Staff were friendly and helpful Great location

                Very disappointed with the quality of the room, it was very dated and in poor condition, certainly not like the room depicted on their website.

              • Couple
                5.0

                The reception area is lovely and there were plenty of car parks.

                The room was not that of the one I sighted on the internet when deciding to book with this hotel. The room was outdated with floral bed spreads and curtains with dowdy coloured walls. The shower was flat with a shower curtain that did not hold any water in and therefore it ran all over the bathroom floor! The bed was too soft as were the pillows. The heater was noisy and the other patrons were quite noisy also! We were overall not happy at all with our overnight stay.

              • Single
                4.6

                It had a good location near the marina and the town centre

                The quality of the standard rooms was very poor considering that Mercure is a 3-4* hotel brand. Standard rooms are well overdue for refurbishment and the website does not reflect this adequately. Staff were responsive to my complaint about my allocated room and provided an upgrade but I do not think the rooms offer good value for money considering that there is such a wealth of other accommodation locally.
