Very tranquil - the golf course setting gave it a rural feel with metro facilities

Location was beautiful. Booked and paid extra for a room with a view and breakfast included. Upon arrival was told there was a problem with the booking and we now had a room with absolutely no view, no minibar, restaurant was booked for a function so wasnt open to guests and breakfast was a pathetic pre-packaged prisoner style breakfast in your room. Too bad if you had dietary requirements. Was offered a bottle of wine as token gesture and had to ask for refund of extra amount paid for paying for room with a view. Incredibly disappointed.

it was overpriced and not as advertised. Tiny rooms, no on site restaurant and a box of cereal in room for breakfast. No room service either as advertised. Our "luxury" weekend away was very disappointing. Get an air B&B instead if you are planning a trip to Portsea. Couldn't even get into a any restaurant's for dinner!

The location is quiet and staff were nice. The advertised restaurant wasn’t open except we were told Friday so we booked in to find out it was just serving pizzas to the golfers over their bar. The superior room is an inferior room that ended up two single beds in a tiny space. If you are golfing with a buddy and want to sleep in the same room and just want to get drinks at a bar afterwards this hotel would be fine.I don’t believe it should be on Wotif as it isn’t what is really being advertised non operational restaurant and only tiny rooms with either two singles or a king bed is all they have. And superior should not be used to explain anything about their rooms. Not a normal Mercure standard.

Room was nice and clean and comfortable, outside room could do with good clean, cobwebs everywhere, check in was ok got given wrong room as to what I Booked thru Wotif, had breakfast with deal only to find out it was like a gift box, felt like I was back at school, no hot breakfast as we where told later of course that they don’t have a chef onsite, management need to sort out issue with Wotif as the Mercure where blaming them for room stuff up, displaying one thing and not getting what you booked.

Golf course is great and hotel is very close to wonderful walks. Accommodation is modern, compact and nice, but no real Wow! factor. Lots of cobwebs on balcony. Overall, a bit disappointing for the price - even discounted.
