jason433 Family - 05/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

We arrived on the island and were told there was a booking but there was no rooms. So the accor website confirmed the booking however the hotel was already booked out. As a platinum member i was disgusted this could occur . we were given no options. had no where to go. Had to leave the island and return to the mainland.

Hi Clayton, We do apologize for the inconvenience, as mentioned we could not help this situation as we where notified late by Accor and there simply was not enough time to notify of the situation. Kind Regards Grand Mercure

We enjoyed our stay the Unit was clean and just what we wanted for the night. It was easy to get to and well signed. The access to the ferry terminal was easy and it is well located. There was nothing more that we required it suited our purpose.

Great view but apartments need maintenance

Jennifer D Couples - 12/05/2019 TripAdvisor review

The apartment we were allocated had a blind missing in one bedroom letting in too much light. Fan remotes were missing or did not work. Main bedroom blind was crumpled. Bath had yellow stains. Second toilet and shower leaked annoyingly.

Wonderful attentive site managers. Great view and position of this harbour waterfront apartment. Let down was the inadequate fit out of the apartment e.g. limited cutlery, crockery, lounge. bedroom TV not working. Rest of apartment was quite good. Quiet apartment but well located near cafes, restaurants shops, walking tracks etc. Overall we had a great stay.

Not Grand in any respect

DayTrip34585783580 Couples - 22/12/2018 TripAdvisor review

We stayed at this property because of loyalty to the Accor Brand. Our 1 bedroom apartment had a strange layout and an impractical bathroom. It was very disappointing, although there probably are better apartments in the complex. The pools are the only highlight in a very average property.I definitely wouldn’t stay there again as the Peppers Resort is a much better option,

not as advertised

mick1176398 Couples - 26/09/2018 TripAdvisor review

check your booking. We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment which advertises king size bed but room only had a double, advertises free wi fi but did not mention only in reception and board room, advertises breakfast when i noticed it wasn't on booking confirmation i asked about it and was told it would be extra cost $15 per person per night which was no problem till we got there and opened the fridge to find ingredients to cook your own worth about $15.00 total (cost me $60.00), blinds did not work properly so there is no privacy and could not block out light from outside it was like trying to sleep at midday, BYO toilet paper only given 1.5 rolls for two night stay, Bin was not emptied from previous guests. Overall poor accommodation at top dollar...

Not worth to call it a Mercure

vamp557 Couples - 05/11/2017 TripAdvisor review

Apartment worn out to below two star standard. Ragged and dirty towels. Badly cleaned, after complaining, cleaned again but dust was almost only distributed. Very friendly staff at reception, even though reception was not open according opening hours.

Luxurious comfort on Magnetic

The apartment had spectacular views and was luxuriously yet comfortably furnished. Everything you could possibly need for a memorable holiday. The management and staff were friendly and helpful. We wished we had booked for longer.

mariannea429 Family - 26/07/2017 TripAdvisor review

I recently booked an ocean view room and expected the view shown in the promotional photos of the Grand Mercure Apartments with magnificent views immediately over the ocean. These apartment are literally at the waters edge. This is not what I got. There were ocean views filtered through some foxtail palms, but were looking over the waterways towards the entrance to the marina and limited ocean views with Townsville Port in the distance and with a walkway in front. I was a little disappointed, however, this did not spoil my stay. At reception I was advised to phone directly if after an ocean view apartment as shown on the website I had booked with Accor online and got what I got.

Beautiful location and facilities

helenwU5745MP Family - 12/04/2017 TripAdvisor review

The apartments and location are amazing, and the check-in staff member was very friendly. The apartment wasn't particularly clean, with many insects on the floor upon our arrival. Nooks and crannies had obviously not been cleaned for a long time - there were spiders & cobwebs in the ensuite, very dusty skirting boards, and we found a hairclip of a previous guest amongst the dust under the couch (while looking for a Monopoly piece!). However the kitchen and bathrooms appeared quite clean. We were unable to access wi-fi during our stay, and were told this was due to the weather. We were also unable to access Foxtel. I asked about this at reception on a Wednesday, and was told somebody would come up to our apartment to fix it that afternoon. However nobody had arrived by the time we left on Sunday. Luckily you don't go to Magnetic Island to watch TV. Some maintenance is needed. Many lightbulbs needed replacement in the apartment. Also, a set of drawers was missing its handle, which we found inside the drawers. Only one of the 4 gyms had any equipment in it. Overall we had a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday, and loved the views & pools.

Beautiful island, units need maintenance

TheHeat333 Couples - 23/01/2017 TripAdvisor review

I love magnetic island and wanted to come back and the island never disappoints. I was a little underwhelmed by the units- they were very dirty and poorly maintained. The linen and towels have seen better days and the condition of the kitchen/bathroom/furniture is pretty disappointing. The whole unit needs a deep clean. The manager was pleasant and corrected mistakes when addressed. However the reception closes right at 5 pm despite the description on the website stating reception closes at 6 pm.

A great place to relax

Jeffrey F Couples - 18/11/2016 TripAdvisor review

These are truely self contained apartments, 400 metres from the Magnetic Island ferry. The apartments have everything you need and there is a supermarket 300 metres away where you can purchase anything you need to make you stay comfortable. There are two types of accommodation, ocean front or setback, make sure you get the ocean front.

paulb99999 Couples - 28/04/2016 TripAdvisor review

Booked in for 4 nights. Requested sea views, got a room on ground floor with views of sun lounges by pool and sea views when no one was sitting in them. Room was very dirty and even had an old soiled rag sitting on the dining table which we hope was not used to clean it !! Rubbish still in the room from previous guests. All kitchen utensils were greasy. Gym was just a very small dirty room with a weight machine that was broken and dangerous plus some free weights. Met with other guests who were in much better rooms that cost them less because they had booked through a website and not the Accor website. I assumed as an Accor Club member I would get the best rate !?! Due to this we asked reception to move us, which they did but not very nice about it. The second room was similar to the first in size and lay out but much cleaner and had the sea view we were expecting. I stay at hotels in the Accor group for work and leisure and am usually very happy with the rooms and friendliness of staff. I have never had the need to complain in the past. Very disappointed with this place, would not stay here again.

Dear Guest Thank you for your review. We appreciate all feedback from our valued guests and utilize comments such as yours to further improve our move towards perfection. As an Accor branded property we strive to ensure our guests have an enjoyable stay, this coupled with the natural beauty of Magnetic Island makes it difficult not to do so. Regards

Pete M Family - 12/11/2015 TripAdvisor review

We chose the Grand Mecure as it had apartments close to the Jetty. Check In was easy and we were left to our own devices, which was good. Apartments were clean and had good air conditioning. Pools were nice and the small gym and BBQ was useful. Really enjoyed our stay and it felt like a home away from home Only thing, and maybe it was a good thing, was that in Accor Properties as a silver member, I should have got free wifi. But, as I say, maybe that was a blessing to encourage me to switch off

Thankyou for your kind words. We are wrapped to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay in back in 2015! We hope to have you return!

Stained everything

David M Family - 11/11/2015 TripAdvisor review

This place was bad. We paid a premium to stay (>$300pn), and it was very poorly presented. Every tap leaked or was broker, every couch was stained and most of the pillows had stains on them. Light fightings were also broken. Overall this place has not been touched since it was built and has had no maintenance since. A really bad experience considering we paid a premium to stay.

Thankyou for your review. My apologies for the bad experience. Since 2015 we have updated our furnishings considerably. We hope to have you return to witness these changes

The resort is having a lot of work done it. Customer service was excellent. The bed was average. Room very clean and view excellent. Downside, there was no bedroom door to close off from the rest of the apartment.

Thankyou for your fantastic review! We hope to have your return with us in 2017!

Lovely stay

Spent 2 nights in October 2015. Very well maintained, good kitchen & great balcony space. Bed bit uncomfortable but otherwise great stay! Didn't meet the reception people until final day so can't comment on them really

E3058EYpeterw Family - 12/10/2015 TripAdvisor review

We booked through Accor an apartment with a king size bed. When we arrived we were allocated an apartment with a queen size bed. When we complained at reception Jeannie could not have been more unhelpful or rude. She told us there were only two apartments with king size beds and it was all Accor's fault because they had been told about this. Throughout our stay we got the same rude treatment from this receptionist. Another more senior staff member did move us after 3 days to an apartment with a king size bed but Jeannie still remained unhelpful over this move.

Great location

Lovely stay close to shops and ferry. Most restaurants are at Horseshoe but only a 10 min bus ride away with regular cheap services. The hotel gym needs an urgent update but then I guess mist people don't go for the gym! Pool and spa were a highlight and great service.

The best apartment I have ever stayed in worldwide.

Travel20142014 Family - 09/08/2015 TripAdvisor review

Stayed in a three bedroom sea view apartment. Absolutely fabulous. Spacious, clean, tastefully furnished, fully equipped kitchen, two bathrooms, one with spa, comfortable beds, balcony with out door furniture, washing machine and dryer. The most spectacular apartment with views to match. Close to ferry and bus stops. Close to an IGA supermarket.
