Customer review rating 4.4/5

Christine Couples - 24/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We were upgraded to a loft room which was a nice surprise and much appreciated and a very comfortable room. Everything in the hotel in good condition despite its long history. Enjoyed reading the book in the room explaining the history of the hotel and its current owner. Restaurant meals were excellent and the staff very knowledgeable and friendly. Breakfast had sufficient choices for a reasonable price. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Dear Christine, What a tremendous pleasure to read your comment and thank you so much for taking the time to write a detail review of your experience with us. We are pleased that you have appreciated the complimentary upgrade to our deluxe loft room. We hope that you have learnt something about Canberra while reading the History book about the hotel.

An Old Hotel that needs a complete make over

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Jetbenny Friends - 23/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We checked into a double queen room with no opening windows that were over the pub and noisy. The carpets were dirty and overall the room didn't feel very modern or clean. Second night moved to another area of the hotel to a King room which was better but still looking rather tired. The hotel overall is a hodgepodge of an adjoining building with ridiculous numbers that make it almost impossible to find a room. No sense to the room sequencing. Had a look a breakfast, did not take it however as it looked a bit tired with limited fresh foods. Overall a very disappointing stay.

Dear Darryl, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Mercure Canberra. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. The hotel was built in 1927 for the opening of the old parliament house. The Ainslie Hotel back then, has been renamed several times throughout the years and has undergone countless renovations. However, the owner insisted on keep an old world charm style to the venue. We are sincerely sorry that this aspect wasn't suitable to your needs. While the hotel is heritage listed, the back section of the hotel was built in the seventies, and the connection between the 2 building might create a hodge podge feeling to it. Again we are sincerely sorry that you did not feel the vibrant atmosphere and history of the famous Olims hotel. Overall, it appears that the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean and modern. The room size is generous and show cases numerous of amenities. Thank you for your compliments about our staff, I will ensure to share your comments to my team to ensure that we work to improve our service and the quality of the facility. Thank you again for you insightful observation and we hope that you will give us a chance to better serve you in the future. Kind regards, Raphael Bagnaud Assistant Manager

We would like to compliment the staff at the Mercure for their friendliness and attention to detail. We felt like we were part of a family rather than guests. Our dogs were treated as part of a family as well.

Thank you for highlighting the amazing service provided by the Mercure team and we look forward to have you back with your four footed friend. Kind regards, Raphael Bagnaud Assistant Manager

This is our second stay at the Mercure and on both occasions we have had a very enjoyable time.

Kj Business - 21/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

As the Coronavirus Pandemic is with us, the hotel appeared largely empty. Nevertheless in these trying times the staff were very pleasant and helpful. The hotel itself is an eccentric historic masterpiece reflecting the early days of Canberra and well worth staying in just for that authentic taste of times past. It is close to the Australian War Memorial and a good base for exploring Canberra, even though this time I was there for work purposes - again well located within a short drive of most of the Commonwealth Government offices.

Dear Keith, Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a detail review of your experience with us. We are pleased that you have appreciated the old fashion style of the hotel, indeed built in 1927, we have tried to keep an heritage style while doing several renovation around the property. The hotel is well located at 700 m from the AWM and the Civic. Thank you, once again, for your amazing review of the hotel and we hope to see you again soon, perhaps once the pandemic is over. Kind regards, Raphael

Margaret Couples - 17/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We only stayed here one night, but from the friendly greeting on arrival to the excellent breakfast on departure, everything was of a very high standard. The room was lovely with an excellent en suite. As we were only in Canberra for a short stay, the receptionist provided a map and highlighted where she would visit. That girl has taste! Her ideas were spot on and we spent a very happy afternoon exploring.
