I am an Accor Platinum member but I had so much trouble checking in at the hotel in indescribable. We had not prebooked this property as we did not know our movements in NT. The young woman at reception was totally clueless. We told her of our Accor status and said to us she will get the best room and we will get our member discount. Well, the room she gave was just a standard room after she told us that she had given us an upgrade. To rub salt into the wound she charged us the standard rather than member rate. We went back to reception and she said she will give us a different room with an upgrade. The second room was exactly the same room with an extra bed thrown in which made the space even more acute. I got fed up and told her we will go somewhere else. She was totally clueless and the least could have done was to ask her manager for help, but no, “she knew what she was doing” and she will fix it up. I got fed up and then used my phone to book On Line with member discount but as I knew she would not be able to upgrade us, I booked the highest category room which clearly could not be upgraded further. We asked her about breakfast and dinner and she told us that breakfast was available at Mercure but for dinner we had to go over the road to Novotel and use the Chinese restaurant there which did not give 50% discount. We found out ourselves that the restaurant at Mercure was open, albeit with limited choices, so we did not have to go anywhere else. All in all a frustrating experience. The room itself is adequate but featureless. There is no soul to the room. The restaurant is adequate given COVID restrictions.

Friendly staff, easy check in and online booking. However the budget type rooms are not very nice. They smell damp, main entrance door slams shut when people come in and out. Bar and pool are lovely and food is decent. However I would not pay $240 a night for a budget room that smells unpleasant.

Good Service but Overpriced

We stayed at the Mercure because they said they had a "Pet-Friendly room with a fence" and we always travel with our little dog and wanted a weekend away (from Katherine). When we arrived the room was small, dated and dirty. Then we noticed the "Fence" was just around the balcony - if you needed to take your dog to the toilet you needed to walk them around the cabin near the main road into the airport. Then overnight the mosquitos came in... I have no idea where from because we had closed every possible spot but we were attacked overnight with heaps of mozzie bites. The bed was so uncomfortable and the linen had stains and the pillows were old and ratty. I paid over $600 for two nights stay and we were unfortunately very dissatisfied with the room. The people were very nice but I will not be staying there again.

Great getaway

This is our second stay at your hotel - we came back as we enjoyed our first visit immensely. As we live in Canberra, it was great to experience the warm weather and the fantastic pool during the last official days of "winter". Our bungalow was clean, comfortable and all the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. If we get the chance to visit again next year, we certainly will!
