Very small rooms and apparently our room was supposedly one of the bigger ones . Very little space to walk around the bed and furniture. Very over priced !

Out of the hotels control, but there was a massive music festival down the road and the sound went right into our room until 10pm meaning we couldn’t sleep. Then a lot of the attendees made a lot of noise after this as they were returning to stay at the hotel. I’d booked this for my 8yo and I to stay in before a hot air balloon flight for his bday the next morning with a 4am wake-up. Needless to say we were both very tired and grumpy after very little sleep.

The pool and area was closed and dirty and no attempt at cleaning. The spa was broken and it was school holidays. The room wasnt ready on time. The maintenance of the property is run down. The best part was the comfy bed.

Location is excellent if you want to walk to a couple of restaurants and wine cellars. Our large room had a private outdoor area which was very quiet. Parking was outside our door, the bed was very comfortable and the water pressure in the bathroom as excellent. I would stay here again and recommend this property as a lovely place to base for your Hunter Valley experience.

The Mercure is a beautiful property in a great location for all your Hunter experiences. We stayed for a wedding this time, and a Gardens & wine weekend previously. The only disappointment has been the efficiency of front office staff to take and return call enquiries. We will be back though!
