Great room and so good to be able to bring the pooches. The room had a courtyard garden allowing the dogs an escape and a place to wee! The room was clean and fresh - the floor was a vinyl floating floor, perfect for any animal mishap! We'll definitely stay again with the dogs, thank you!

Hotel and loyalty benefits decline...

TripAdvisor rating 2.0/5

jasonsI5143GC 25/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

Have been a regular guest at this property for some years and as an Accor Platinum member, had enjoyed loyalty benefits including free minibar and a nice welcome amenity on arrival. This visit was quite disappointing in terms of loyalty benefits. No room upgrade despite other room categories being available. No welcome amenity. No minibar provided in any rooms let alone that being complimentary as a platinum member. Removing the minibar items was suggested as a means to reduce COVID touch points. However - breakfasts at the hotel were a self serve buffet (all guests using the same tongs, serving spoons etc). A fridge was provided in the reception area where guests were able to obtain water (complimentary for platinum members). Again, the fridge door becoming a significant COVID touch point - more so than items in a minibar would have been. The rooms are dated and overdue for a refresh - hallways and common area floors / carpets / furniture is dirty and aged...but most importantly...our room was not serviced on one day of our stay. We waited until 4pm to report this to management at which time we were told that the room cleaning staff had finished for the day. A staff member did offer to bring fresh towels. This is not the level of service that should be offered at an Accor property - let alone to loyalty members! Thankfully all staff we encountered during the several nights stay were friendly and helpful (as far as they could be). Essentially the hotel is in serious decline and there is no longer an attraction to stay because of the to extras that were previously provided to high level loyalty members. If this is indicative of Accor's means to deal with difficulties associated with COVID (reduction of services to loyal members and letting property standards fall)...then it is time to look at another hotel chain loyalty program.

Good location but hotel seems quite tired.

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Graham Couples - 24/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is in a nice location with easy access and parking. Rooms are good size but are a tired with poor lighting and noise coming from surrounding rooms. There was a lack of pillows and no tissues supplied. Below what I would expect at a Mercure. The breakfast was fine but the bistro had a less than welcoming atmosphere - food was ok, nothing great. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful. Hotel probably due for a renovation and update.

Josh Friends - 23/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Good hotel option in Canberra. The hotel it self is a bit aged and shows wear in the rooms. However this is made up for in their customer service. Felt very welcomed and accommodated to all my needs as well as being extremely helpful. Also the breakfast buffet, although basic, was enjoyable and had great staff.

What a lovely time we had over our four nights at the Mercure Canberra. All staff from housekeeping, reception, food service and Luke, the Manager were so friendly and helpful. Thank you for making us feel so comfortable and welcome. We ate the majority of our meals within the motel and were very impressed with the quality of the meals and the excellent choice provided. We will certainly be back the next time we’re in Canberra.

Brian621 13/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

We have stayed here many times. It is very well placed and has beautiful gardens. We were again welcomed back in a friendly, efficient and professional manner. Any questions we had were pleasantly responded to in a timely manner. It was excellent to see the return of the buffet breakfast and particular mention should be made of the attending staff member (ex WA) who was pleasant, welcoming and highly efficient. Great job. Thank you. Until next time. Cheers. Brian & Margaret Farrell

Lockdown Stay

spencerw928 21/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

Canberra lockdown and a move to Queensland sent us into a spin. With no furniture, no car and our animals being sent ahead, left us with no where to live whilst we waited for the elusive border pass for us to travel. The manager and staff at the Mercure welcomed us and looked after us really well with friendly efficient service for the 2 weeks we had to wait . No request was too hard.

JJGreyNomads 16/08/2021 TripAdvisor review

Having to visit Canberra on a regular basis becomes almost routine but we always look forward to our stay at the Mecure. The staff are fantastic, Chris, Lyn, Caitlin, Dyshna (the Indian lass who runs the bar) are all excellent, just to name a few. We always ask for a room away from families with children after several unfortunate sleepless nights so it’s all good now. We would highly recommend the Mecure.

Incompetence at every point

NorthStar279043x 17/04/2021 TripAdvisor review

Staff were polite but totally incompetent. Our booking was messed up in every way possible. Wrong bedding configuration. Package included breakfast but no record of this. Rang reception and was given details of the restaurant opening time etc for dinner - but they didn’t mention the restaurant was closed for Covid and the food was served in the bar, which is absolutely putrid. Buffet breakfast had to be served by the staff due to Covid - the 2 staff working were fantastic but they needed another 3-4 staff to service the queues in a timely manner. The list went on. The room was nice but the experience was a disappointment.
