The room we had was one of the refurbished rooms. The bathroom was an excellent size. We had trouble with the door locking. The grounds are still nice. A lot of metal around the doors have rusted. Breakfast wasn't as nice as it was when we previously stayed there about a month ago. We will stay there again when we have to come to Townsville.

The staff were lovely but the facilities were poor. The aircon in my room did not have all functions and the remote was broken so I could not read the screen. The bed was uncomfortable and the pillows were so thin and obviously had not been replaced in a long time. The towels and sheets were also harsh and thin as if they also had not been replaced. The tv did not have many features that most modern TVs or hotel/motels have and the satellite kept dropping out so I was unable to watch anything. The walls were very thin and any one who walked past including trolleys made so much noise at all times of night. The buffet breakfast was mediocre - the mushrooms and eggs had no flavor or seasoning and the sausages were so hard and old they were inedible (which shouldn't be the case as I arrived at 6:15am for breakfast). The parking was easy.

Restaurant food very good. Staff went above and beyond with the little things. For example- we’d had a very early morning flight & when we arrived I was dying for a hot chocolate before starting our course. The wonderful lady in the restaurant quickly helped me out & got me a delicious hot choc. It’s the little things that make your day. Check in & check out was quick & easy. Rooms clean.

Well located, Clean & very pleasant room. But very short on power points for this day & age.

I stay at Mercure for work and it’s not bad but it needs some serious updating and every room I have been in has no PowerPoints ???

Very welcoming & hospitable staff. Nice rooms.

Hi Tammi, Thank you for sharing this. I completely understand and yes we have certainly had some challenges throughout COVID in the kitchen. We are however pleased to be coming out the other side and I am sure that our new menu will be really well regarded; I hope to have this launched by mid June at the latest. I have also made a note on your profile regarding room service and the team will share some news with you on your next stay. All the best and please let us know if we can be of any further assistance. Kind regards, Daniel Lewis General Manager Mercure Townsville

The greatest staff

Customer review rating 5.0/5

The team at the Mercure Townsville have always made me welcome. Long term staff greet me with a hug when they see me there although I only get to Townsville once or twice a year now days. The staff on reception are great and although there are some newish staff the longer-term ones know me well. They always have a lovely smile of welcome and they make you feel welcome when you arrive. There are so many and to try and name them all is difficult but staff like Hayley and Nicola. Ruth is the greatest and always has a smile when she sees you. The staff in the restaurant are also the greatest. Faith, Bobbie and all the rest can’t do enough for you. I have stayed at the Mercure Townsville since the 1990’s and would not go back if they weren’t the greatest. Although I have only mentioned a few staff they are all great people even the newer staff like Tracey and Hanna show they are staff that will continue the tradition of welcoming guests to the hotel.

Dear John, What a wonderful piece of feedback for me to read, thank you! Our team always love to receive positive feedback and I know that reading your email will put a smile on everyone's faces. Thank you for sharing this and please let us know when you are returning in the future. Kind regards, Daniel Lewis General Manager Mercure Townsville

My mother & I enjoyed our stay overnight. Very helpful & welcoming staff. Room was comfortable however you had to leave them main light on over the tv for any other lights to work. Was annoying shining in your face.

Good location, good customer service.

All again went well at the Mercure Townsville. Despite the inclement weather, the stay was as it should be. My only gripe is that in this day and age, climbing under a table to find a powerpoint to charge a smart phone/ tablet located over 2 metres away from a bedside was very awkward- some parts of the room could do with a refresh/upgrade.

Centrally located

Rooms are very small and cramped. The carpet smelled of urine. We had to regularly ask for shampoo, tea bags, coffee and toilet paper. The food in the restaurant wasn't good. But the reception staff were fabulous.

Dear Kym, Thank you for taking the time to share this with us. Please allow me to begin by apologising for the multiple issues you experienced during your time here. Of particular concern is the smell you have described in your room. I have spoken with our housekeeping team and they will certainly be more vigilant in the future. I am sorry that these issues impacted your stay. If you are ever returning, please let us know so that we can ensure a seamless stay in the future. Kind regards, Daniel Lewis General Manager Mercure Townsville

James R. Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

Staff are amazing and always keen to assist when requested. The only issue I have is the wifi in the rooms. I was staying in 288 and typically have a room done that way. The wifi either doesn’t pick up or too weak to use. Not a big issue however a little annoying at times.

Dear James, Thank you for taking the time to share this feedback with us following your stay. We are currently working on addressing this WIFI issue and hope to have a resolution in the coming months. Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance. Kind regards, Daniel Lewis General Manager Mercure Townsville

Be carefull to be not placed in unfurbished rooms at full rate, one of mine had a bad smell of mould, my mother got stuck in her room when the door swelled and jammed shut, was ok after they moved us both to nicer rooms, paid full price, very dissapointed...

Have never stayed there before as we always stay in Palmer Street. From the time we arrived till check out, it was fantastic. The refurbished rooms are beautiful. Bit small but adequate. The food and service was excellent in the restaurant. It was very busy but the staff were up to the task. The staff everywhere were so good. We have never stayed there due to some negative comments posted. You can never please some people, but it is a definite for us now.
