Standard room very small and basic but clean and very quiet. Super comfy bed and great choice of tv channels. Suited us perfectly for one night after a wedding near by.

Front desk wasn't very bubbly or welcoming compared to other places we've stayed. All other staff were good. Walls and elevator were a bit dusty, a/c unit flap was held open with blue tac.

Really nice place and use of mercure facillties. next door is excellent. However ...i booked here because of the advertised airport shuttle. When I arrived I was told the shuttle wasnt operating and it was only a 7 min walk. This was difficult and took me much longer as I had alot of luggage. Also you can not get an uber from there. You have to walk back to the airport through a dark carpark/ hire car area. So its not a great place for a woman travelling alone.You can still get taxis but that limited options. Its also about $35 each way to get to town. Felt a bit isolated and stranded as it was hard to get anywhere.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review of your recent stay wit us. Its a pleasure to read you got experience our facilities at both hotels. I am sorry however, to hear about the shuttle. The bus runs on demand 24/7 except for 30 minutes in the morning at 10 am., when our driver takes guest to the local shopping center. I am very sorry if the wrong information was given and you had to walk to the terminal. Please trust I will reiterate with the team. Thank you again for sharing your experience and we hope to welcome you back in the future Kind regards Kim S Operations Manager
