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
