Stayed over the weekend in the 2 bedroom apartment, great facilities, restaurant and stunning view. The rooms are quite dated, and pretty old TVs, the pressure in the shower was terrible, and trickled out of the shower head. Shower is no good if you are taller than 5’ 10”. Not bad, but not great. The great views added a star.
OK But far from Good

Stayed for 3 nights whilst visiting BNE and due to school holidays and events a lot of hotels in the CBD were booked or very expensive so decided to try a tree change and stay in the hills....only 20mins from where we needed to be so gave it a try. You just need to take everything with you because being at the top of Clear Mountain, it is at least 15mins drive on a steep and windy road with wildlife at night to get to any convenience or take-away places. We stayed as a family of 4 with 2 kids under 8. The rooms were basic but clean and well appointed. The hotel is clearly very dated but bathroom renovations made it a bit more modern on par for a Mercure standard. It was cloudy and rained for 2 of our 3 days so couldn't enjoy the view, but on the last day it was spectacular. Breakfast was reasonable and well appointed however by far the biggest letdown was the restaurant. We decided to try it for dinner one night and prices were very expensive - fairly typical for a hotel for example, a main lasagna was $28, a risotto $32 and steak $48. The menu was also very basic with not too many options. Our biggest surprise came when we got our meals - they were TINY, much smaller than an entrée serve. The lasagna could have fit on a teacup plate, and the risotto was literally one ladle spread over a large plate, definitely not adult size meals and left us very unsatisfied and hungry. We complained to the waitress and she agreed with us, telling us she has not bought her family there for this reason, and this is a common complaint form guests. She explained the menu is designed to get diners to buy more sides to make it a meal, for example the steak was $48 for meat only and if you wanted chips of veg you have to buy them separately! Wow I could understand this for a fine dining experience, but this is far from fine dining. Overall, would not stay again however if your looking for a place with great views and OK rooms then probably worth visiting at least once - just bring all your supplies with you and avoid the restaurant for dinner!
Hi, thanks for your feedback and I'm sorry that thought the meals were small, this is one of the very few remarks I have seen regarding the meal size. Both the risotto and lasagna are portioned (risotto 180gm rice only, & lasagna 220gm) plus. The comments from one of our team regarding the side dishes was somewhat incorrect, this is the first time we have had a range of sides but its not because of the portion sizes, its to boost revenue. The cost of food produce has gone through the roof over the past 3 or 4 months and rather than increase menu prices we are trying to off-set the high cost of goods with addition good yielding revenue. Although the chef is confident the portion sizes are correct due to your feedback he is going to revisit the portion sizes and menu selection. Thank you.

From our point of view - we really enjoyed the tranquility and relaxed atmosphere of the hotel complex and the very friendly and amazing staff. As far as Mobility access for our aged parents - who needed walkers to move around - the mobility access WAS NOT VERY GOOD. So we would not recommend this hotel for mobility impaired persons who require flat access and easy ramps.

Restaurant: Seated at a table with water in glasses from previous diners. Not being told in advance of 3 mains being unavailable. Starter lovely, desert lovely, main aweful especially Fish of the day overcooked and swimming in what seemed like cheap tinned vegetable consomme. Service - waiter tried to clear plates while 1 of us was still eating. Waitress took glass still half full of Cocktail, she was quickly corrected. Residing locally and 1st time dining, we'll not return.
I Will be back

Very clean facility, staff were warm and welcoming in the restaurant, check in was average in the evening but the check out experience this morning made up for it. Room had great view, Bed was comfortable Tv was a little dated if I was to be picky Food was amazing, Dinner 10/10 breakfast was nice it could have been a bit warmer though because it was very chilly this morning. This was a quick trip for work commitments and I’ll be back. Thank you team
