Lisa Families - 03/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Bathroom had been pleasantly updated. Room was an average size. Did ring several times to confirm my late check in before the phone was answered. Ordered desserts from room service which we were advised they had to check because we had a large order (3 desserts) and it was near closing time. Order was placed which arrived quickly. Desserts were over priced some "house made" items looked and tasted very bought. Overall the location is good, hotel was clean and well presented, rooms were comfortable and an average size.

Comfortable clean good location good food

Dr L. K. Families - 27/05/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

When checking in with my 2 young boys in toe (6 and 7 years old), I enquired about room service as we required an early night. The information given was adequate and the male employee commented to my children that room service was fun. We called for room service at 6.30pm - no answer for several minutes. Managed to place our order approximately 15 min later. It then took nearly an hour and THREE phone callswith promises of a prompt delivery to follow up on the meals. No real apology but a superficial excuse of the new staff member had failed to advise us of the delay each time.

Dear Liia K., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Mercure Charlestown. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. At Mercure, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us. Please rest assured that we are taking the appropriate measures to address the problem and prevent future occurrence. Our phones and restaurant can get busy at times and we always do our best to assist as soon as possible and advise when we have delays. Our apologies you experienced delays and we failed at advising current wait times on this occasion. I will be sure to instruct all staff on the importance of advising wait times. We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely, Vanessa

Nice big room. Breakfast was nice, but service is slow despite being the only customer at the time of ordering. Extractor fan in the bathroom was very loud and cannot be left on at night which means I am unable to leave the light on in the bathroom at night.

Well located for our need

Poor Room Service Availability

Customer review rating 2.5/5

Anthony B. Couples - 24/05/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I stay at this property fairly regularly and I have a plant-based diet. There was literally nothing I was able to select from the room service menu because all of the veg/vegan options had ‘run out’. The reception staff were polite and apologised saying that the ordering had been scheduled for the following day. I was forced to get dressed and eat at a local take-away instead of enjoying room service in the comfort of my own room. The bathroom was also very, very ‘tired’. Although I understand you have a renovation program underway, I was not my experience.

Handy location

Again the staff were very good and helpful and friendly.We stay here on our visits to Newcastle [my home town].Room 228 gives us a lovely view and the staff [Vanessa this time] booked us into our usual room [228]. Only problem was A/c did not appear to heat the room as expected. Perhaps filters to be cleaned at least twice a year [I had this in my home]. Also cold water tap washer to check - would not turn off completely. But motel always very clean and a great staff. We enjoy our stays - a great location.

Outdated room......furnishings and repairs not complete. The hot water was Luke warm. This was reported to management with “bland reply “ and no apology! 1 bottle of water for 2 guests.

Quick overnight stay

We continue to return to the Mercure Charlestown as we always enjoy our stay. The staff is excellent, the room always spotlessly clean. Check in is simple and fast as we are now so well known. The room we always take is very quiet.
