After arriving late into Darwin I got to reception about 2am , when I arrived in my room it smelt bad and damp . I then noticed that the air conditioner was leaving badly and there was a huge wet patch on the carpet which was giving the damp smell. The aircon was on but on the lowest setting I assume to attempt to limit the water leak from it. Due to the room not really being cold it enhanced the smell. To add to this I noticed 2 baby cockroaches crawling around the outside of the cupboards . As it was late I went to sleep , when I woke up on the morning I went to make myself a coffee then found that the milk in the fridge was frozen. This was the last straw so I went to reception to report the dampness and the milk. The lady swapped my room which was great but being in hospitality myself I fail to understand how house keeping could have noticed the huge wet patch and leaking aircon and yet as a company you still sold the room and $165 ish per night is not really on the low price point spectrum . Another observation is I stayed in the new room for 5 nights and not once was the room Cleaned or rubbish removed by housekeeping . I’m unsure if due to Covid the premises does not offer cleaning or rubbish removal etc but I just found that odd especially for the price point . I ate at the restaurant a few times and the food was great and I have no complaints at all. One particular evening I saw the chef get berated by a female calling him arrogant and that she had dated chefs and there all arseholes . All of this was over I believe her ordering loaded wedges but wanting them swapped for fries which was not reflected in the docket printed to the kitchen. All your front of house staff did a great job and I can’t say a bad word about your restaurant team. I would stay within the hotel again in the future providing I receive some clarity around the procedure of housekeeping etc . Thank you Joel

We stayed for one night while transiting. I like the pool - it felt like we were on holidays. Good food at the restaurant. Drinks on the expensive side but I guess that’s what you get here. Nice cocktails. Room was adequate. No complaints. Helpful and friendly staff.

Very nice resort however the beds are too small. Would really appreciate and expect king size beds in 4 star properties.

Good location, with good amenities.

Had everything I needed. The staff were friendly and accommodating. Wasn’t aware that the rooms didn’t get made up every day at first, but when I enquired, was attended to without fuss. Pool area is great, but can get crowded quite easily.

Good Stay

Staff were all friendly and helpful, good coffee in the cafe each morning. There need to be some shuttle bus services into the city as there is no public transport option from the resort. It’s nice to find some decent pet-friendly accommodation.

Pool villa staycation

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Tabitha Couples - 16/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

We live in Darwin and chose to use our territory voucher here. Nice staycation upgraded to the pool villa. Room was pleasant and clean and well accented with natural flowers. Pool off the room was a wonderful plus. You could easily spend a day relaxing and watching the beautiful bush behind you. Now as note on the safety of the decking, the material chosen for the decking is very slick floor tile. You may want to opt to put rubber grip mat down or spray grip the areas near the pool. The bathroom is gorgeous, love the big beautiful light mirror. It was a nice touch having a welcoming platter of fruit on arrival with a generous splash of fresh fruit. My partner was not a fan of the remote controlled fan. It was very fiddly and took him a while to turn onto the right setting. The room service had fantastic affordable meal options. We really enjoyed the seafood platter. I'd give the cocktails a miss and instead opt for a bottle of wine if I stayed again as receiving half a cup pour for 20 dollars isn't my jam. As for the price point, I would not stay here if it cost much more as I couldn't afford much dearer but I think it was a fantastic value for money and we enjoyed our stay. Beautiful private pool villas.

Victoria Families - 15/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

We are a family of 5, 2 adults 3 children under 4. We are Darwin residents who used the Territory Tourist voucher for a couple of nights away. Check in and finding our room was very easy. The pool and garden areas were amazing! Unfortunately there wasn't enough parking outside room, so we had to park on the other side of the complex and carry our bags & kids. This was very hot and hard work as it was mid afternoon in Darwin. Our room was very neat and tidy and a/c was running. We were disappointed that the Family unit we booked only had a fridge, kettle and a couple of cups. Families, especially with young children often need a few more items to make the stay successful for all the family members. Although the food at the restaurant was beautiful and the staff there were fantastic, especially with the children, it was too expensive for us to eat every meal there. We brought some food with us, however, without any utensils or crockery we were unable to use the food we brought and were forced to eat at the restaurant. On our final morning we checked out of the hotel early as we couldn't afford to eat breakfast there. Without a microwave or appliance to heat milk for bottles, we experienced 2 very unsettled bed times. We understand that we were on holiday and that what we have at home isn't always a priority for a hotel chain, but when a family room is advertised, we thought that it would have a few more resources to assist with the care of all family members, not just adults. We have recommended the Darwin Airport Mercure to many of our friends that are looking for somewhere to eat and swim. However, we have told them to look elsewhere if they were planning to stay a night or two away from home.

Very disappointing

When I arrived to check in I asked for and paid $ extra for late check out at 2.30pm the staff tired to overcharge me for this then the next day I received a phone call to my room at 11.45am well before normal check out asking me when im checking out I explained to the staff that I had paid for 2.30pm late check out then at 1 o'clock I had the cleaners knocking on the door asking me when im checking out now I have been a loyal customer to the mecure for the last 4 and a half years to say im disappointed is an understatement

Loved our stay bar the incident at our room

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Dani Families - 13/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

Love everything about the hotel and its services. Was up feeding my newborn and someone was trying to get into our room at 5am (lucky the doors were locked) the male stood chanting for around 3-5 minutes outside then he disappeared. Spoke to reception the next morning and provided all details, could of been a very different story if doors were not locked, was concerned for our safety as blinds were open all day so whoever it was knew we were in there with a newborn baby as the reason I was awake at 5 am was to sooth the child and feed him. Thanks

Overall the experience was positive from losing my flight and booking a room at the last minute, to pick up at the airport, and my two-night stay. The food at the resort restaurant was very good, and the service was very professional and courteous. Recommend it to my friends.

The location is very convenient next to the Darwin International airport. After a week of driving in Kakadu and Litchfield National parks, our stay at Mercure was a much needed relaxation before our flight back home. Service was at the standard expected for Mercure.

We come here all the time, our home away from home. It’s the perfect staycation with the amazing pool and the great restaurant. You can sip cocktails in the pool and it’s great for families. Some rooms are renovated while others aren’t but whatever the room they are clean and have all the amenities you need. There is a room type to suit everybody. The restaurant is consistently good and they serve phenomenal coffee. We have never had a bad coffee. We will be back
