Reception was good. Room clean. Bed comfortable. We were somewhat puzzled as to why we were allocated an accessible room and bathroom which we didn’t need.

I think it’s unconscionable to not properly advertise the state of a new hotel in an effort to increase revenues and open early. The rooms are finished though have a couple of strange features. The hanging lights next to the bed that you constantly hit and start swinging.. and the waste bin that you hide under the small table so every night I had to crawl under the table to dispose of things. Moving it didn’t help, as housekeeping kindly put it back under the table everyday for me The fridge is of nice size but completely empty, no mini bar (even though a deposit is taken for incedentals... why? Nothing to spend. Cafe or room service I hear you a ask... nope. Try finding something to eat at 7pm in Belconnen without a car. If you are opening early and have no facilities, make sure people know. Tap water is not part of a mini bar

Horrible stay. We have just finished travelling over 10,000km's through Namibia and Botswana and no accomodation was as bad as the Mercure. Check in was supposed to be 2.00PM room not ready until 3.30PM. No room service. A/C freezing cold or freezing cold. Restaurant is a cafe in an adjoining Labour Club where you are surrounded by one arm bandits. Parking is on the top floor through security boom gates and so hard to get to and out. For $450.00 plus per night absolutely shocking we were booked for two nights moved out after one night.

The Hotel and room was of an excellent standard but, I thought a hotel of any level should have somewhere to put your luggage off the floor. We ended up with the bag on the floor. Not really good enough.
