The room was great. But the pool and gym are too tiny for the number of guests so you cannot use them. You can hear everything happening in the hallways in your room. The coffee machine at breakfast needed to be fixed 60% of the time. It's not a bad hotel, but we expected better service for our price.

The buffet breakfast was delicious and exceeded expectations, however the complimentary coffee machine was constantly “out of order” or being repaired. The room was neat and tidy and was well equipped for our short stay. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and the hotel is a quick train ride from the airport, and is centrally located making it the perfect for international or interstate travellers. I will definitely be staying at the Mercure again.
